When trends hit the runway, it’s a pretty solid indication that they will be everywhere in 6 months. Sometimes, they can be challenging to wear in real life so aren’t embraced by retailers or on the street style scene. When fashion insiders or celebs endorse them with their latest stream of outfits, though, it solidifies the trend as one that will translate from the runway to real life. And that’s exactly what is happening right now with the exposed bra trend. While it sounds tricky to pull off IRL, there has been plenty of evidence that it’s about to blow up.
Ahead, I’m breaking down the trend from where it started on the runway at shows like Givenchy for the S/S 20 season, as well as Jacquemus for their F/W 20 show. Then, see cool, wearable ways to pull it off with outfit ideas from the street style scene, the celeb set, and even myself.
