The Bra Top
A look that was inspired by the 1950’s beach culture has spun the hottest trend in high fashion. The bikini top, first made popular by pin up girls in the late 50’s and actresses such as Bridgit Bardot and Sophia Loren, is now being seen on the runways of such designers as Prada, Dolce and Gabbana, and Nanette Lepore.
This cropped silhouette is far away from the belly baring shapes of the late 90’s or the 80’s circa Madonna’s Like a Virgin Era. Think more St. Tropez in France and not St. Marks in the East Village.
The Bra top is best matched with high waist pleated skirts, for a retro look, or wide leg pants that cover the belly button. It also has the ability to be used as a layering piece, under a sheer top or worn with a cardigan. For a timeless style that every woman should take a chance on this is the piece for Spring!
