It’s been quite some time since I got down to writing a style based post! I am recently inspired by the trend of wearing your innerwear on the outside! Basically, the whole wearing a bralette as a top trend.
I have to admit, I was not a big fan of the whole ‘wear a bralette as a top’ at first. But it has grown on me!
Finding the right way to pair a bralette with other items in my closet is a key step in finding my own, unique style of wearing it.
In this post, I’m sharing my style tips to wearing a bralette as a top with you (yay!):
The Rule Of Thumb: Top & Bottom Balance
Like Mama Sito says, balance is key!
Especially with outfits.
Having this in mind, I decided to pair the lace top with jeans, as opposed to shorts or a tight skirt.
To me, it provides a nice balance for the whole outfit. Not only that, it helps to avoid looking skimpy. With pieces like the bralette, this is a great way to still look sexy, without being trashy.
I also find that with this tip of balance in mind, you can have a never ending closet filled with choices!
Layer on top or underneath the bralette
I am a big fan of layering. This adds more definition and depth to a look. Not only that, you can wear it in so many different ways.
I am pairing the lace bralette with a floral blazer for a more formal vibe here. You can layer it with a blazer, leather jacket or coat and it all creates a different impression/style.
I personally love layering with the blazer because it’s very chic. If you want to be a tad more conservative and are not comfortable just wearing the bralette, this is a nice alternative!
Accessorize like any other outfit
I love accessories! I feel like they make an outfit.
Whether it’s dressing an outfit up with more statement pieces, or to add a little bit of pizzazz to a look with subtle pieces, I’m all for it!
With this look, I went the more subtle, elegant route. I love these dainty gorgeous pieces from AUrate New York. This pearl necklace is something I wear all the time with more dressy pieces, as well as casual sweaters. It’s just so versatile.
The bralette speaks volume and so the dainty, subtle feel of the necklace balances it out!
In addition to this, the earrings I’m wearing and ear cuff is also from AUrate New York!
I love love love these earrings, they’re just so beautiful. The ear cuff is a 14 karat gold piece.
Sharing some cool facts about AUrate:
AUrate New York is a Fine Jewelry brand that is non concessions! Their designs focus on durability, quality of the material, transparent pricing and sustainability!
What does Non Concessions mean?
Non Concessions mean that AUrate is transparent about the origins of the gold, diamonds and pearls they use. AUrate uses 100% recycled gold without any diminish in quality. The reasoning for recyclable gold is because gold mining is big on environmental damage and being sustainable is one of the top principles for the brand. That’s something I love when buying or partnering with a brand- is to know more about the WHY of the company.
To find out more about the ethics behind the brand, click HERE.
All the pieces are either 14 karat gold, or Vermeil, and sustainable pearls and diamonds as well.
If you want your pieces customized, you can have them Made To Order as well!

Confidence is KEY
Like everything in life, you got to OWN what you do and what you wear! If you’re confident in strutting outside in your bralette, then so be it! Do it loud and proud.
Hope you guys enjoy the post!
