How To Style a Bralette

There’s a big trend right now with bralettes, and it’s for great reasons. First off, they’re extremely comfortable. I much prefer them to a normal bra because they’re so easy and you hardly know you’re wearing it. Second, they’re so cute and add a really adorable detail to any outfit. They also work to add some coverage as well, so that’s a plus in my book. I love the oversized shirts and sweaters trend that’s going along with it, and instead of just bare skin, adding a cute, stylish lacey bralette underneath is such a great way to throw in a little flare of your own.

I will say I know that bralettes don’t work for everyone, as my best friend is very gifted in the chest area and needs the real support of a bra most of the time. But for those of us on the smaller side of the spectrum, they’re very a Godsend. I’ve come up with a few ways to style bralettes below to give you some style inspo for this Spring and Summer!


I think the best way this style works is when you are styling casually (AKA I wouldn’t do this at work unless your company is REALLY laid back). The only ways I’ve seen this style work well is with loose tees and tanks instead of fitted things. It just doesn’t have the same look otherwise personally. I love that the bralette gives you the ability to dress up a more casual look with a very subtle sexiness.

The whole point of a bralette is to show it off a little, right? I size up in my looser fitting tops to be able to wear them off the shoulder and let the bralette peak out a bit. I think it looks better than just a standard bra strap or even bare skin. It adds cute chicness to a simple tee or tank.

The bralettes with the racerback style are typically a little easier to show off because they have thicker straps. Another big trend from last fall and winter was the open back detail of tops. I love having a beautiful lacey racerback to add under my tie-up sweater. It’s a little sexy but also adds coverage. Plus this saves you from having to go totally braless or wearing a sticky bra and is way cuter!

This is where the racerback style bralettes really look great. Open back tops give you a chance to show off the pretty lace details without being too sexy with no bra or too boring with a typical bra. I love having lace under open things because (obviously I can’t harp on it enough) I love the extra coverage! I love the layered look of it and it’s become one of my favorite styles. I showed it above for a cute date night look but I also love to rock this look with open back sweaters like below.

I like to wear a cami under most of my tops, but in the warm months it’s nice just to have a bralette as an additional layer. On low cut tops, having a bralette adds a little extra coverage and a feminine touch. V Necks are great for wearing with the high-neck bralettes that are becoming popular. You can also wear loose V necks off the shoulder a bit as well with normal style bralettes.

While I will style my favorite white bralette with a white top, it’s more fun to add a pop of color underneath. I like to do rose or grey with white, rose with a grey top, blush with a white top, black with a grey top, etc. Letting the color stand out is part of the fun!

I saved the best for last as this one is my favorite! I love loose flowy tanks and they’re great for Spring and Summer. In the Spring I love to style them with large cardigans for a cozy layered look.

  • Simple is always better. I tried so hard to figure out what I was going to wear for Easter. I spent a good hour trying things on the week before. I sent my sister tons of pictures asking her thoughts. In the end, I wasn’t really satisfied with any of them for some reason so I decided to just go with an outfit I know I love and feel good in. For some reason wearing white just makes me feel super put together. And I managed to not spill anything on myself or get chocolate on my pants which is a major win y’all. .

We don’t need to overthink things so much. It just causes unnecessary stress. I do like to plan ahead because it saves me time, but I also should have realized sooner that the dress I was trying to make work just wasn’t working. Even though I love that dress, it doesn’t flatter me how I want it to and it might be time to let it go. Don’t be afraid to let go of things that don’t give you exactly what you need. You don’t have to settle, something else will always come along. Or you probably already have something else in your closet (or life, this isn’t limited to clothes!) that’s even better than what you’re trying to make work!
  • Happy Easter 🐰❤️
  • Casual Good Friday ❤️ this was yesterday’s work outfit but I jazzed myself up before we went to church with Jakes mom and stepdad last night. I cried like a baby. Good Friday always both kicks my ass and reminds me how blessed we all are. 
The beautiful KC weather this weekend is so exciting!! I’m so happy when it’s Spring weather 😍 Have a beautiful Saturday!!

My simple wardrobe makes me so happy and I love the seemingly endless possibilities I have with it. Having a love of neutrals really works well for me with this! 
Happy Good Friday ❤️
  • The only things in my life these days are the things I really want there. This isn’t limited to the stuff in my house and the clothes in my closet. This includes my job, relationships, hobbies, everything. I’ve even started eating better as a by-product of simplifying my life and I just feel better over all. .

By removing the things and people that don’t make me happy, I have more time and energy for the things that do that I used to put off and not prioritize like I should have. We spend so much of our lives being “busy”. But what are we busy with? Most of it is actually unimportant when you break it down. .

I say no to things much more now and that allows me to spend more of my time relaxing and enjoying life. I used to constantly feel rushed or like I should be doing something. If I wasn’t moving, I felt like I was wasting my time. But the truth is, resting and just being home with Jake and the boys is my happy place. It brings me so much joy, so that’s what my priority is. .

Having more time to just BE has been amazing. Being more picky in my relationships has helped me really value the ones I hold most dear and has brought me to an amazing new job because I wasn’t willing to settle for anything less. Respect yourself and your time and prioritize the things that matter most to you. Life’s too short to live any other way.
  • “When you love what you have, you have everything you need.” So many wonderful things have happened since I simplified my life. Changing my outlook on life wasn’t really intentional, but I’m so thankful it happened when it did. I was kind of at a breaking point. Fed up with where I was and how things were going with my old job. Struggling with depression and comparison. I knew something had to change but I had no idea what. Simplicity was that thing. .
Now, I spend way less time on social media. I deleted Facebook off my phone and haven’t  looked at it in weeks. I’m much happier without it. I read a lot more. I’m getting much better at ignoring the impulse to pick up my phone and when I am on it, to compare my life to the perfect pictures people post. I even cut a few inches off my hair! 💇🏻‍♀️ I want things as easy as they can be right now. It takes a lot of stress out of my life. Try to go a whole weekend without social media and see how awesome it feels!
