It’s really not far away anymore – the long-awaited bikini weather. This means, it’s time for a new Trendy Tuesday Summer Series! The first edition is all about bralets which actually remind of a bikini top. So you don’t have wait to feel the real summer vibes until you are in your summer holidays. Put on your cropped strappy tops and enjoy the sun wherever you are.
Regarding the definition of bralets they are easy to describe: Originally, the come from bras but they don’t have any wires. A bralet is a simple version of a tailored top which is cropped above the waist. The tight cut forms a clean silhouette, especially if it’s combined with high-waisted palazzo trousers, a mini skirt or skinny shorts. It seems like this versatility was also something the designers appreciated this season. The bralets show up in the Spring/Summer collections of Michael Kors, Missoni, Miu Miu or Louis Vuitton. Each label styled them a bit differently so you can let you inspire of the combinations which suit you the most.

Apparently, you have got the classical way to wear the bra top with a midi skirt like it was known back in the 50s. To style the outfit in a more modern way, you may choose a trendy gingham print or a asymmetrical skirt. If the weather is not very pleasant though, there is still a layered version to wear a bralette: Just pair it with a shirt or a thin pullover underneath. To keep the trendy piece ladylike for an everyday look, go for a solid, colorful material instead of lace. With a happy floral print, you can feel those summer vibes even more!
