Remember when Katie Holmes accidentally made Khaite’s matching cashmere bra and cardigan go viral? The knit twinset immediately sold out after Holmes was photographed wearing it.
A year later, the bralette top continues to crowd our Instagram feeds and even made an appearance on Jacquemus’ internet-breaking Spring/Summer 2020 pink runway. The French designer paired rib-knit bralettes with contrast-colored blazers — giving birth to an updated version of the trend. Fashion girls were (naturally) quick to adopt this new, more versatile rendition of the viral co-ord.
Bralettes paired with all sorts of outerwear – from blazers and coats to bomber jackets – also popped up at the Fall/Winter 2020 shows of brands like Dolce and Gabbana, Marc Jacobs, Off-White, and Saint Laurent. At Jacquemus, models matched slip dresses with incredibly low-cut necklines showing off a matching bra. Virginie Viard paired embellished bras with tweed jackets and long cardigans at Chanel’s Resort 2021 show, while at Alberta Ferretti’s Resort 2021 show, a fringed jacket was teamed with a bralette.
With more and more luxury powerhouses adopting the daring look each season, the bralette and blazer styling trend has proven to be hard to miss and easy to replicate.
