CollegeFashionista X VS PINK: From Day to Night With The Bralette at Syracuse University

Exclusive Feature

What the bralette lacks in fabric makes up for in personality. Depending on the accompanying garments and accessories, bralettes can be bold and sexy, playful and innocent or casual and comfortable. Regardless of what personality it takes on, the bralette always delivers a delicate feminine touch. This sense of versatility allows Fashionistas to easily incorporate it into their outfits regardless of their individual styles.

The style of the VS PINK bralette combined with its variety of colors and patterns makes transitioning from sunlight to moonlight easier than strutting down cobblestone streets in stilettos. Due to the design and vibrant colors, it is an ideal layering piece. During the day, layer it under a flannel paired with a pair of skinny jeans and boots for a casual chic look. For a more subtle approach, wear a slouchy, oversized sweater and allow it to slightly fall off the shoulder, exposing the frilly bralette strap. Incorporate it into everyday loungewear by laying it under a cozy zip-up sweatshirt and a comfy pair of yoga pants. During the warmer months, wear the bralette on its own with a pair of high-waist denim cutoffs and fun accessories—the perfect outdoor concert ensemble.

As the clock dances through the hours, the bralette dances into the night. For a bold statement, wear it alone under a chic leather jacket and high-waist dark-wash or black denim, or a high-waist skirt. For a more sophisticated, polished approach, layer it under a sheer white blouse or button-up with a pair of contrasting or matching heels. Rather than wearing a bandeau with an open back or sheer top, opt for the bralette for a feminine twist.

I styled the bralette two separate ways for my day and night look. For my day look I wore a bright, royal blue bralette layered under a sheer white button-up. The lacy bralette complements the top’s intricate design while also adding a splash of color, livening the ensemble. My dark denim skinny jeans help to balance the button-up’s sheer flowing fabric and contrast with the white. For a casual feel, I wore knee-high dusty brown boots—a great option for walking between classes. To help draw attention to the bralette, I accessorized with a layered charm necklace.

In contrast, for my night look I let a vibrant pink bralette set the tone for my outfit. The pop of pink makes a playful statement against the all-black ensemble while also playing into the top’s delicate cutout design. I kept the bottom half of my outfit simple, wearing a pair of black skinny jeans and sexy black pumps, to help balance the top and help make the ensemble more streamlined. For a touch of glam, I adorned my wrists with a mixture of gold and black bracelets to finish my bold look and reflect the light from the moon.

Bralettes are go-to pieces due to their versatility and endless styling options. No matter the time, occasion or look, the bralette will bring the perfect touch of feminism to any ensemble.
