When something so beautiful sits so elegantly in your wardrobe, it can be hard to resist showing it off to the world, right? And there’s no piece of clothing more deserving than the little lace bra when it comes to making an outfit statement.
Subtle, elegant and feminine, lace bras are versatile and can be your best friend in both formal and casual settings. So, whether you want your tasteful little number to sit under an open denim jacket or chill snuggly under a cozy knit jumper in wintertime, we’ve got you covered.
Here are 5 ways you might want to style your lovely lingerie:
1. Underneath Deep Necks
If you’ve got a cute colored lace bra, you can team it with low-cut vest tops, or deep-necked dresses. This will give your outfit an elegant peek at the lace at the neck. You can choose to pair your lace bra in both casual and formal fashion, as a peep of the material will look sophisticated and sexy when styled under a little black cocktail dress or a maxi dress. Or why not show it off with your plain white vest top and shorts during the summer months?
2. Sideway Slips
This one’s best for casual attire, but you can go formal if you wish. Sleeveless tops with low under-arm cuts can really show off your lacy outfit addition, and you can adopt this look in all different styles. From gothic band t-shirts to nautical stripes, you can even add a suit jacket over the top to create an edgy working look. Whichever style you choose, it works.
The sideway slip also looks great with simple camisole tops and shorts in summer, as well as tank tops and spaghetti tops. Top tip (get it?): Make sure the lace bra you want to show off has its prettiest elements in the flaunted area.
3. Go Solo
If you’ve got a super cute lace bralette, don’t be fooled into thinking they’re just for undergarment use. You can also wear them as tops and people will be none-the-wiser. Whether you go for a 70s Stevie Nicks look and wear a kimono paired with lots of celestial jewelry over the top, or you simply wear a cute little denim skirt and jacket with Docs or sandals, you’ve got an enviable outfit as well as a multi-purpose piece of clothing!
4. Underneath a Mesh Top or Dress
This is definitely a popular outfit choice for all the party lovers out there. Mesh tops are SO in at the minute, and they look great with elegant lace bras paired underneath them. Go for a sparkly black mesh top, a black choker, fishnets, and a pair of Docs for a 90s grunge look, or opt for a renaissance patterned long-sleeved top for a classic Y2K aesthetic.
5. Underneath a White Shirt
This is a classic look that everyone from Julia Roberts to Kylie Jenner would approve of. Find your favorite lace bra (preferably a detailed black one) and pair it underneath an open crisp white shirt. Add a pair of comfy Mom jeans, a scruffy bun or thick curly Vivian Ward in Pretty Woman hair, (whichever works best for you) and a couple of gold chains, and you’re good to go.
