Summer is officially here, and that means new experiences, new adventures, and (of course) new style statements! Whether you can’t wait to break out your favorite pair of cut-off shorts or are looking forward to a series of beach bonfires and rooftop pool parties, the perfect style accessory (hint: the perfect bra) has the power to make or break your ideal look this summer. To help you discover the best fit, flavor, and flair to suit every mood and occasion, we’ve put together some of the hottest looks with the most lovely, edgy, and elegant bras of the season.
The Casual Get-Together
The key to the perfect bra is compatible fabrics. Laidback, draping fabrics are out in full force this season, from designer tank-tops with inventive cuts to flowing maxi dresses and rompers. To create the perfect effect, choose smooth bras to layer under sheer fabrics such as satin, nylon, or even thin cotton blends. Opt for elegant bras with a standard V shape when a glimpse of bra is expected (e.g., loose clothing + dancing), and yes, visible straps are 100% a go, so don’t be shy when it comes to bold, intentional colors like bright red and ocean blue. We recommend the Aqua Bra & Panty Set from Be Wicked for a fierce splash of color.
A Day at the Beach
For outdoor summer events, a bit more visible bra is fashionably par for the course (though be advised: you may turn a lot of heads if you’re on an actual golf course). Deep-cut tank tops and casual sweaters (off-the-shoulder, see-through, etc.) pair brilliantly with shorts and mid-length skirts, and the right bra can offer the ideal finishing touch. The trick here is to aim for comfort while introducing a luxe element with elegant bras, such as the dreamy and sophisticated Minoa Naughty Soft Bra from Cosabella in dragon fruit pink.
Oh, Those Summer Nights...
Summertime is the perfect opportunity to infuse your chic after-hours look with a hint of sensual appeal. Since summer trends tend to be slightly more revealing (for obvious reasons), this is a great chance to show a little skin and make a unique style statement. By no means do elegant bras have to be tame, and creative strap or lace designs across the chest or back can seriously up the ante when it comes to daytime-to-nighttime wear. We recommend the Multi-Strap Cage Bra & Cheeky from Hauty for adventurous pairings with low-cut tops and dresses.
