There’s no question that ab-baring crop tops have made a resurgence. Fashion girls have tried a long-sleeve style and worn a crochet version at Coachella. But now there’s a whole new way to wear crop tops, and it comes down to one cool silhouette: the cropped bra top.
Not only does a bralette layered underneath a tailored jacket look undeniably cool, but it also allows you to show off all of those planking exercises. With endless style possibilities, it’s no wonder this versatile piece has become so popular.
Take a styling note from Chriselle Lim above and wear a sporty version underneath a checked coat and pants. Her outfit is cool and elevated—she keeps the look sophisticated by wearing the bra top with tailored outwear, but the midriff-baring element makes it edgy. You can also wear it layered effortlessly over a button-down, with tailored pants and heels. The formfitting cropped bra top creates a modern, sculptural silhouette and a sense of drama.
