Bralettes have become quite a staple in my wardrobe. The lace is always so delicate and pretty, they are incredibly comfortable (offering little support though) and they add a little something to the outfits you pair them with. While bralettes may come off a little impractical and you may see them mostly for loungewear, they are actually super versatile. They can easily be worn with your favorite tops and dresses providing a peak of something a bit sexy, feminine and really beautiful.
High neck bralettes, specifically, are my favorite go-to. There is just something incredibly gorgeous about them. I rarely come across one I don’t fall in love with. However when I purchased my first high neck bralette, I was a little stumped on how to wear it. Obviously it was too pretty to just hide under a basic top, but I also wasn’t sure how I felt exposing my “bra”. That first bralette sat in my drawer for a long while. I would periodically pull it out and try to style it some way, but was never really pleased with how it turned out.
The first time I styled my high neck bralette it was with my long vest that I had wanted to style as a dress (full post here). It seems like common sense to me now, but a high neck bralette is an absolute must if you have something that is too low cut for your taste or if you just feel like adding a little unexpected detail to a basic jeans and tee look.
Nowadays my high neck bralettes are on constant rotation. The three looks below are usually my go-to, but the options are pretty much endless. Everyone needs a high neck bralette in their lives! They are so beautiful and add a lot to an outfit!
