We welcome the midriff this season with the bralet top making its way back from the 90s – think Alicia Silverstone in the movie Clueless or Tori Spelling in Beverly Hills 90210. A hybrid of the crop top and average bra, the bralet disguises itself with patterned and bright fabrics to bring a touch of cool recklessness and even cheekiness to your wardrobe.
Tougher fabrics, featuring a mix of spots, stripes and florals means this trend is perfect beachside wear and often sported as a must-have music festival piece. It benefits a smaller bust due to reduced support and of course toned abs to make the most effect. However, take note that there is no room for self-consciousness here.
Fun, relaxed and perfect for our hot summers, wear with a maxi skirt if you’re worried about bearing all, or well-cut denim shorts for a relaxed weekend vibe. If you’re still a little self- conscious, pair with a lightweight scarf, draped, to keep your cool.
