My self inflated ego takes great pride for this trend sticking, cause it was about this time last year, after buying a black maxi dress with spaghetti straps too long for me to NOT wear it with a bra, that I came up with the idea of wearing bright colored, floral, crazy printed bras underneath anything that common sense dictates to wear with a bra. Sure bustiers work as well. Ah… you had to be such a smart ass about it.
Anyway… I have my friend Julie to witness in my favor on this one. Although, you may just as well disregard the above rant and blame it on a rainy Friday and my delusional self-image. Seriously, I’d do the same, while holding a bitch rest face as TMR stated one of these days. Of course it all just may be a case of AGAIN those fucking ’90’s comeback trends, when showing our bras was such a cool thing. Doh. I loved it then (cause I was an idiot), hated it afterwards, and now here I am preaching on behalf of this trend as if I’m the Jehovah witness of exposed bras (no pun intended). What the heck is my excuse today? (idiot alarm going off)
I noticed 2 things being massive hits in retail right now: (1) SHEER TOPS, and (2) BRIGHT or FLORAL BRAS. Putting 1 + 2 together does not a genius make. Well maybe a little bit. Or maybe not. I mean going around in bras is obviously not an option, and wearing sheer tops with nothing underneath cannot happen in the real world. So… there you have it. To be honest I don’t even know which of the 3 is more of a trend: the sheer tops, the bright bras, or the combo?
Sheer tops deserved a comeback. I remember when I was a kid my mom used to wear so many sheer blouses with a black bra underneath, which too is a great option, especially for office. Of course, you have to wear a blazer on top, and keep the seer vision for after work drinks. There is something so incredibly feminine and sexy about a sheer top, that I’m glad they’re back. The way the wind blows through the fabric, the way it conceals & reveals at the same time, the way you’re actually going for the exposed lingerie look but know that going blouse-less is not a option, so you might as well cover up, in sheer though. ;)
It’s elegant, feminine, very sexy, sophisticated and easy to pull off. One sheer top and tons of colored, bright, printed bras can make infinite outfits. Yes, a black bra is the most common option, but I love how a red, pink, neon, and mostly floral bra can be guessed from underneath a sheer top.
Let’s have a look at some sheer tops, bras & bustiers: Cheeky, but not as much as bustiers alone. Although with the way things are going, next thing we know it’ll be a faux pas to wear sheer with a bra. What’s the big problemo anyway, they’re just breasts, right?
Happy weekend my lovelies! xoxo
