To Brave or Not To Brave...

Our biggest question this season is to brave or not to brave the bra tops. The bra tops are not only an underwear anymore but they are a part of the new Spring outerwear trend. The bra tops took so many forms on the catwalk ranging from a sleek evening look with high waisted trousers at Richard Nicoll, to the lingerie based styles at Dior, and the sportswear inspired styles at Balenciaga. It was Madonna who first made them as outerwear with a 50s style Jean Paul Gaultier basque for her blond ambition tour and they are still a perfect stage wear. (Lady Gaga's rubber version and a pencil skirt).

The bra tops can be included in our daily wear by making them a part of our outfit and not just a sultry item. They can be worn underneath cardigans and biker Jackets.(Style tip: Wear under a crisp shirt or over a simple t-shirt). However, you chose to wear bra top, less is always more.

What do you guys think? Should they be worn as an outerwear??
