Bralettes are flat out awesome. The chief reason is their versatility. Bralettes can be flirty and fun but also tough and chic. They come in practically any color, shape, form, and design you can think of. Plain, strappy, lacey, caged, etc. They can be worn alone or layered under tops and dresses.

Bralettes can be styled into monochromatic outfits to create a clean, crisp look.
They can be worn under sheer shirts to give off an edgy or flirty vibe.
Bralettes can be worn casually underneath oversized tops to play up a basic staple. They can provide coverage for the “girls” while still adding style.
