One of this summers major trends as shown on the catwalk at The British Style Collective is lace bralettes, which are pretty much bras that you would normally wear as underwear but that are slightly longer so that you can get away with wearing in the daytime as tops because you layer them over another top.

As seen on the likes of Kendall Jenner and Hailey Baldwin, the trend is very big on Instagram and Tumblr where you can find lots of inspirational images to give you some ideas as to what to wear them with.
It kind of links to the whole boudoir dressing trend which includes items like silky slip dresses which look just like nighties and also lace body suits too (Khloe Kardashian has been wearing a lot of these recently).

A lace bralette would look nice pair with some high waisted wide legged trousers as this would show the contrast between the big material filled trousers with the skimpy little top and would also excentuate your waist and make it look smaller.

You could also wear one underneath a blazer which would look incredibly cool and stylish as you are combining a really feminine lace top with the more boyish item of a blazer. You would still be very covered up but extremely sexy with the lace peeping through at the same time so this is a good option if it’s cool outside but you still want a taste of the trend!

Another look to try is to pair say a black bralette underneath a sheer shirt so that you can see it underneath. Again this can look very seductive and you could dress it up or down depending on the rest of your outfit and your makeup. This option is good if it’s cooler outside but you still want to look stand out without showing too much skin.

I quite like them worn with jogging bottoms actually as it means you can wear them in the day time and not look too dressed up but I think because joggers are so casual this makes a really cool combo.

A new take on the trend is to wear one over the top of a white t shirt. This is much more of a daytime option and you can even buy sets from places like Topshop where you get the t shirt and the bralet together so there are no excuses not to give it a go! Aha.
