Quickly becoming the ultimate wardrobe staple, bralets have been cropping up (no pun intended) all over the place. We’ve seen hundreds of our favourite Insta-stylers incorporating them into their on-point outfits and now we’re ready to embrace the trend with this edit of the best bralets around.
Firstly, we’d just like to give a shout out to the comfort provided by this new ‘It’ buy. Free from underwire or padding, they can be worn as lingerie or, if you’re after a bit more support, over an unpadded bra (we’d definitely recommend strapless).
From lace and lattice straps to flower motifs and crochet, everywhere from Bershka to Boohoo has cottoned on to the power of the bralet, meaning there’s hundreds to choose from.
Before you think they sound terrifying, bralets can actually be a very handy addition to your wardrobe. Layer a lace style underneath sheer silk blouses for a sophisticated spin on after-dark dressing, or rock a bright bralet with an oversized vest for festival chic.
Of course, you can also wear them as tops in their own right. We’d recommend always pairing with high-waisted shorts, skirts or trousers. Try a pair of tailored trews with a longer length bralet and blazer buttoned up over the top. Add glossy courts and you’re practically Kendall Jenner.
Our favourite thing about the bralet is that we no longer have to set out on our usual search to find cami tops we can wear with sheer over layers. Yes, we genuinely do face that struggle on a regular basis.
To help you pick out the perfect style, we’ve put together a selection of the best bralets you can get on the high street. You can thank us later. Go forth with your new purchases safe in the knowledge that you’ve bagged one of the hottest buys of the moment. Well done.
