Fashion for you and your Valentine


Valentine’s Day is around the corner and what better time to find out what to wear underneath your clothes for yourself or your special someone. The fashion trend of showing your delicates has been strong for awhile now so I would like to explain how to pull this trend off with a classy and sophisticated appeal.
There are many reasons to follow this trend but one of the main reasons is that if a woman is wearing something beautiful underneath her clothing, she sends a very powerful message to herself and the universe and hopefully we all see it as confidence and mystique.
The main attraction for this trend is the bralette. This trend started a couple of  summers ago. Basically, a bralette is a bra without an underwire worn as a top if you are bold enough or under a sheer top or open necked top. This less supportive, more dainty lingerie is so pretty it deserves to be the main attraction or, at the very least, to be seen.  A bralette is like a sports bra shape but, more often than not, in a lacey material. It comes in a plethora of colors and is very pretty.
This exciting trend is so versatile that the fashion options are endless.  One of the all-time favorites look is a bralette underneath a dainty lace top. Sexy and sophisticated at the same time.
Another way to incorporate this look is to just display the sexy straps of a bralette by wearing a boat-neck sweater, wide-necked sweatshirt or open-necked shirt to show straps off. Off-the-shoulder tops also look great with a lacey bralette strap showing on one side of your shoulder. Also, a plain bralette can have the straps angling toward your neck, which ultimately shows off your décolletage.
A couple more looks just show the back of the bralette. Many have the straps down the middle of the back—wear a low back, higher neck top in the front. Lastly, allow the bralette to serve as a layering option, meaning wear a deep V-neck shirt with the bralettte peaking through front.
If you need more support, and are interested in obtaining this look, then wear a supportive, strapless bra underneath the bralette and no one will be the wiser. All of these looks are more for a night out on the town or a weekend look, and I wouldn’t necessarily recommend this for your professional day-to-day work style.  The bralette on its own is definitely one for the millenials out there. If you are comfortable with the look, non-millenial women, myself included, can wear this in one of the other ways described.
I have always believed that you should be comfortable in your clothes and what you wear underneath. For many, knowing that you have taken the time and effort to adorn your body in beautiful lingerie affirms your self-worth, boosts your self-confidence and ignites the feminine creativity.
