How to Style Bralettes

For the past few seasons, fashion has shown us that a triangle bra is more than just a simple and practical piece of underwear. The reality is, a triangle bra or bralette can be born in a thousand different ways: a lace bralette top, combined with light and transparent blouses or simply as an alternative to a sporty t-shirt.

A trend which is obviously easier to pull off during the summer months; we’ve had our fun experimenting with the trend of the moment, wearing bralettes on display - either a classic lace bralette model, a corset/bra blend or a sports bra version. For 2019? We’re seeing more of bralettes! Delicate lace bralettes, embroidered balconette bras and refined triangle bras embellished with lace and more lace. The latest fashion in triangle bras are too delightful to be hidden under impenetrable layers of sweaters and jackets!

The nicest triangle bras of the season

The champion retailer of good taste and refinement (and has my soft-spot) is & Other Stories, and this year they don’t fail to surprise again with the perfect blend of sophisticated and mischievous lingerie. Personally, my favorite are the autumnal colored balconette models. Alternatively, the Lulus Adella bralettes are a great alternative for a crop top and if you’re looking for a lil’ luxury: Fleur of England, Simone Pérèle or I.D Sarrieri are great choices.


How to highlight our delicious bra without seemingly dropping standards? Amongst subtle games of transparency and seduction, here are a few different ways you can style bralettes with confidence. 

How to Style Bralettes

From day to night; start simply by wearing a loose-fitting camisole with a little peek at a (colorful) lace bralette underneath. For the cooler evenings, cover up with a maxi cardigan and use accessories such as a silk scarf to have control over how much you'd like to show off.

Cool & Casual

Another chilled-out look. If you've found a corset-styled bralette you'd like to wear why not wear it like a cami? Wear a trendy wrap around shirt loosely over a corset or bustier with some intricate detailing. This look can be dressed up or down by wearing heeled boots or sneakers.

Tempted to relax?

Similar vibe to the above, you can make the bralette trend as flirty and feminine or otherwise as you'd like! Personally, I'm more about the heeled boots style but if wide leg jeans and hi-tops is your thing, this trend can also work for you! If you're wearing a plain camisole or tank top, why not be bolder with your choice of print on your bralette? It's not all about lace!

Breezy Bralettes

If you would prefer more support you can always swap out the lace bralette for a sports bra. Either choice worn under a sheer crop top just gives a little glimpse.

Sports Chick

If you're excited to show off your newest bralette, why not go off-shoulder? The halterneck bralette trend is the latest fashion to hit the scene, so off-shoulder tops and sweaters is another way to style bralettes.

Styling Triangle Bra

Of course, we'd be amiss not to include some sexy partywear. There are a huge number of sheer/ruffled tops and blouses out there! Our tip is to keep it simple with your choice of bralette and let the top be the focus.
