London Fashion Week: Are visible bras and bra straps a fashion faux pas? 0

If you flick through some of the snaps from London Fashion week you may see a surprising amount of visible bras, cutaway dresses and sheer fabrics. These trends all look fantastic on the red carpet but is this a trend that us mere mortals can rock too?

Some bras are all about fit and function and some are made to be seen. I don’t see why this look should be feared for a night out; if you’ve got the confidence to wear a gorgeous bra under a sheer top this Autumn then why not just do it?! Ellie Goulding is!

Ellie’s take on the trend involves a clever use of a patterned strapless bra peeping through a black sheer top. This is a really sexy yet flattering way to show some flesh and look bang on trend. Ellie keeps her skirt hemline knee length and her shirt to the wrist to balance out the revealing top half and keep the look classy. The bra stands out from her otherwise completely black outfit and really packs a punch.

Freya’s Neive would look amazing worn underneath a black sheer top; the black lace and bright multicolour and blue print would be a cheeky pop of colour. The longline version worn in this way would be a great way of trying the look whilst covering up a bit more and would give your outfit a vintage twist.

Eliza Doolittle, however teams a dark coloured bra underneath a nude chiffon blouse for a ‘barely there’ look. I can imagine this could be recreated with a Freya Deco or Jolie for a cheeky nod towards the trend.

This look need not be for smaller busts too with the Deco avaliable up to a GG cup, the Jolie up to a J, the Neive available in the longline up to a G cup and the balcony up to a K cup.

Probably not the best idea for the work place, however why not channel the sheer-top look with a string top underneath a blouse? What do you think of this trend? Does it have a place beyond the red carpet?
