How to rock the bra top without baring too much skin

 Bra tops are the new crop tops. But if you’re shy to bare it all in these itsy-bitsy tops, here are some celeb tricks to pulling off the trend. Because sometimes, showing a hint of skin is sexier than revealing the full monty.

Hot mama alert! Fann proves that age is not a factor when it comes to wearing a bra top, pairing her bralette with a sparkly hoodie (great for minimising exposure of midriff) and velvet joggers for an athleisure-meets-biker chick look.

Who says you can’t get away with wearing bra tops to work? Pick a loose-fitting top in sophisticated fabrics like silk or linen, and team it with sleek pieces like a pencil skirt, waistcoat or blazer for a more polished look.

If you are crop shy, pair a longer top with a high-waisted bottom so that you show off just a sliver of skin. A top with a ruched or shirred design like Hazelle’s also allows you to control how much midriff you want to bare.

Layering a bralette over a shapeless tee or a blouse is a great way to give it some definition and breathe new life into old clothes.

Alternatively, wear it under a micro crop top like Sonia for an ultra-sexy take on layering. A longer bralette balances out the extremely short hem of the top, making the look sexy, rather than skimpy.

A barely-there bra is a great way to sex up a pantsuit (not that this lit outfit from Moschino needs any help).

Jade’s seriously on a roll and we don’t blame her. If we had it, we’d flaunt it too in this cute little top with a twist front and peep hole. Layer another bra top underneath if you are wary of wardrobe malfunctions.

Okay, so this is actually a bodysuit and not a bra top, but no one would know any better with those strategically placed cutouts. When worn with cigarette pants, this River Island corset bodysuit oozes femme fatale vibes.
