Anyone can wear the bra top trend – here’s how

There's a bra top for every body here.

Wearing a bra top out of the house might fill many with dread, but the bold and brave look is one of the biggest trends for spring – and it’s surprisingly wearable.

As petrifying as the idea sounds, co-ordinated well it looks effortless and chic – not to mention comfy.

From sports bras, to leather and knitted bras, anything goes – and the key is layering.

We’ve found inspiration from our favourite influencers and designers to inspire you. Here’s how to wear it.

This year knitted bra and cardigan co-ord sets have been easily available on the high street, offering an easy way to wear the trend.

Worn with high waisted trousers or jeans, it creates a casual look that’s not quite as naked as you might think. Avoid low cut jeans if you want coverage.

Under a blazer

One of the most popular ways to wear the trend is under a blazer.

Not only does it dress up the look, but it also offers coverage.

Over the top

For those who can’t imagine stepping out in a bra (even with layers), bras look just as good worn over a tee or a dress.

Spotted at Simone Rocha’s SS21 show, this is the best way to wear the trend if you don’t want to show your skin – but it looks just as good.

Under a shirt

Whether you’re looking to dress up or down, wearing a shirt with your bra top is the way to go.

Anything else you wear with it will inform the dress code, so add jeans or denim shorts for a casual look, or tailored trousers for a smarter vibe.
