Emma Watson Just Made a Cutout Bra Look Shockingly Chic and Elegant

Emma Watson is one of my favourite celebrities to look to for polished and wearable styling inspiration. Unfortunately for me though, she isn’t one of those celebrities who we catch sight of very often, so on a rare occasion when she is spotted, you know she has my attention. And to my delight, last night was one of those happy occasions. Attending the premiere of We Dare to Dream in London, Watson joined Malala Yousafzai and director Waad Al-Kateab on the red carpet, styling an unexpected partywear look I plan to copy this event season.

On the late-November evening, Watson reached for a slim-cut, single-breasted suit set, which she paired with silver sparkly heels and a festive red lip. Though we love Watson for her classic, polished style, her looks are often dressed up with a subtle playful addition. In the past, she's opted for a dramatic collar or broad-shouldered jacket, but on this occasion, the actress let her strappy bralette peek out beneath her blazer for a stylish twist that exudes understated glamour.

Styling the exposed-lingerie trend in a way that not only feels wearable but also classy, Watson chose a bralette with delicate strap details. This thoughtful choice meant that the look remained clean and polished rather than cluttered, and the bra wasn't forced to compete with the crystal embellishment on the shoulder of her blazer. Her monochrome styling added to the sleek feel, which she kept relaxed by styling her hair in a loose ponytail and opting for minimal makeup, bar her red lip.

Indulging in the glamorous energy of her evening look, Watson's black blazer featured a striking embellished detail that worked to lift the feel of the outfit whilst allowing her to forgo layers of jewellery in favour of a few simple accessories. For a low-effort, high-impact outfit, Watson's bralette and blazer pairing is a party-season no-brainer. Wear with platform heels to add drama or tone it down with neat ballet flats.
