Sometimes, they are downright confusing - is the bralette a BRA or a crop top? While we can’t really draw the line ourselves, there’s no question that inner wear is outerwear as of 2015. Never before has mainstream fashion seen a garment (or undergarment) so comfortable, versatile, stylish and sexy. For this reason, you probably saw more bralettes this summer than you’ve ever seen. You probably bought (or wanted to buy) a few yourself.

Bralettes by nature seem to be a summer-only item, but we at Petite Cherry think otherwise. So don’t stash away those bralettes yet. We’re going to show you how you can flaunt them year round!

The basic premise of bralette/crop top fashion is this: baring a bit (only a bit) of any item below is sexy. Maximum 2 at a time. Too much makes it skanky.

  • Upper-bust cleavage
  • Midriff
  • Side boob

With that said, the perfect candidate for bralette fashion is someone who’s comfortable in their own skin. ;)

You don’t need bomb-sized boobs like hers to pull it off. All you need is a stylish longline bra, like




8. With a Loose Tank Top, a la Summer Forever

Have you ever realised that most fall outfits are just summer outfits with additional layers. For example, shorts can be easily autumn-ified with leggings. And what better way is there to dress up for transitioning cooler weather than by layering, with a cardigan for example. Combat boots and a utility jacket lend an edgy touch to the otherwise feminine ensemble. This look would go great with




9. A la VS Fashion Show

Not that your next OOTD should come from the runway, but we can’t help feeling that a bustier + high waistedants + sheer lace slip wouldn’t make a bad party ensemble, right? At least Taylor thinks so. For this look we’d suggest
