Still hot for FW12, the strappy bralette top vamps up as a basic layering piece. A body conscious shape that is well fitted, is both sexy and functional-giving good support for a sleek and chic look. This ‘90’s inspired trend is very obviously Gaultier with his army of supermodels and Madonna showcasing it ‘to the max’ back in the day. Here is a modern way to wear it this fall, while still paying homage to trends past.

How To Style It—My Advice:
This kind of top is perfect under sheer blouses. Throw a leather blazer over one to reveal the perfect amount of skin just to tease, while still keeping it classy. Layer a loose-knit crochet sweater casually over it with a killer pair of leather leggings. Pair it with high waist pants or skirts. It’s all about proportional balance- so keep skin baring to a glimpse is what it’s all about.
