How To Style Bralettes In The Summer

Happy #fashionwednesday, pretty people!! I’m super excited for today’s post. I teamed up with Kohl’s, a major retailer in the United States for clothing, makeup, jewelry and house wares. We worked together to put up a post about their favorite summer style: BRALETTES! Now, you all know that my style is strictly in the “modest fashion” section, so I wanted to be able to show you that you can be modest AND gorgeous, and still rock the latest trends. So. Let’s dive into this.

Look #1: Chambray Top + Cream Lace Bralette

How To Style Bralettes In The Summer

This is my favorite look. I love the way the high-neck bralette peeks out from underneath the chambray top. It is an effortlessly chic look, especially when paired with this floral skirt. This has seriously #vacationvibes to me. Here’s how to put this look together:

How To Style Bralettes In The Summer

  1. Pick a solid color, lace bralette. I chose cream because it is easy to match with everything I own. It isn’t too busy, but it is very flattering with my skin tone. I like the high-neck because I’m all about that whole #modestishottest vibe.
  2. Pick a button down top. I opted for my chambray top because it makes the whole outfit more casual, and I can unbutton as much as I want to show off the bralette. 
  3. Choose a patterned skirt. This skirt is cream and coral, so it is perfect for summer and matches the bralette I chose. Opt for something with the color of your bralette in it so that it goes well together.

Look #2: Floral Top + Light Pink Bralette

This is a good look for summer, too. I think the light pink matches really nicely with the flowers in the top. I went for an oversized tee so I could tie it really cute at my waist. I paired it with white jeans and threw on some cute heels so that it went from totally casual, to casual-chic. Here’s how to do it:

How To Style Bralettes In The Summer

  1. Pick a combination that matches: top + bralette. I chose the light pink color in the top to match to the bralette. I didn’t want to do grey because it would be too same-same and the bralette wouldn’t pop as much.
  2. Opt for white jeans. These add a pop of summer style. White jeans look perfect in the summer time, especially if you go for distressed ones. Choose the ones you love the best, and rock them!

Look #3: Casual Army Green Top + Black Bralette

How To Style Bralettes In The Summer

You can’t go wrong with this super casual look. I wore this outfit on the plane to the dominican republic. Throw this on with a pair of yoga pants, and some cute Nikes, and you have a match made in heaven. Here’s how to do it:

How To Style Bralettes In The Summer

  1. Grab your favorite loose fitting top. I love the army green because I can wear it all year long. With a bralette in the summer, and a cardigan in the fall and winter. It’s incredibly soft so basically also incredibly comfortable.
  2. Match with a neutral color bralette. Black was the obvious choice here because it goes with my black yoga pants and nike shoes. It isn’t loud so I can wear it all the time.

I love love love bralettes and I hope that you can see that there are other ways to wear them besides the usual bralette + no top look. Not that it isn’t gorgeous, because it totally is, it just isn’t something I would personally wear.

    So pretty, Taylor! I think bralettes are so pretty but hesitate to buy them because I felt like I couldn’t wear them modestly with the type of job that I have. Thanks for showing me that I can! Gotta go to the store this weekend now 😉

  4. Jasmine | 19th Jul 17

    • Taylor Mobley | 19th Jul 17

    • Taylor Mobley | 19th Jul 17

      I’m so glad you found ideas you liked!! You’re so welcome!

  6. Lauren Nakagawa | 19th Jul 17

    Love the layering in all your outfits but especially the athleisure!


  7. Rachael Thomas | 19th Jul 17

  8. Lily | 19th Jul 17

    Love, love, love that you did this so modestly! I feel like the whole wearing bralettes as a top, just isn’t that cute. You look fabulous in all of these outfits!

      Thank you Lily! It’s nice to see modest clothing in action sometimes and I agree — the bralettes as a top just isn’t cute to me!

  9. Stefanie | 19th Jul 17

    such a great post! bralettes can be really tricky but you nailed it! xo

    • Taylor Mobley | 19th Jul 17

      I have to admit.. I was stumped in the beginning thinking how I would style these. 🙂

  10. cara | 19th Jul 17

    I love the way you styled all of these! The casual workout look is my favorite but the others are so cute too!

  11. Tanvi Rastogi | 19th Jul 17

    I love how you styled them all. The black one looks interesting.


  12. Anna | 19th Jul 17

    Bralettes are literally the best thing in the world. I’m not a huge fan of camisoles because I don’t like all the extra fabric, so they’re a great thing to wear under shirts for a little extra detail!

    • Taylor Mobley | 19th Jul 17

      SO TRUE Anna. They add that little extra something to an outfit!

  13. Kristen | 19th Jul 17

    Ok, you’ve convinced me to try out bralettes now! I’ll definitely be hitting up Kohl’s to get some bralettes soon 🙂

    Kristen |

  14. Natalie | 19th Jul 17

    LOVE this post! I adore bralettes but don’t have the desire (or the flat stomach) to just wear them with shorts/an open top so these ideas are perfect for styling them! Thank you for sharing.

  15. Becca Michelle | 19th Jul 17

    These looks were so great! I have some bralettes but I’m never quite sure how to style them, so this gave me some major inspiration

  16. Courtney Kramer | 19th Jul 17

    I love how you styled all the bralettes, they add such a cute feminine pop to each outfit. I especially love how they are all modest. I never thought of how one could be modest and cute, thanks for inspiring me!

    • Taylor Mobley | 19th Jul 17

      You are so welcome, Courtney! My whole life is trying to make modest cute and it’s not always easy!!

  17. Ruthie Ridley | 19th Jul 17

    These bralettes are so pretty and I love each and every styled look!

  18. Katherine | 19th Jul 17

    Your pics and your clothes are always so cute girl! And I love your bright aesthetic. I definitely love your twist on being more modest with bralettes because sometimes it can feel like to wear a bralette, you have to be like half naked.

    • Taylor Mobley | 19th Jul 17

      Ugh I felt the SAME WAY. And it’s just not true. You just have to work a LITTLE harder. 🙂

  19. Michelle | 19th Jul 17

    These outfits look so cute! I haven’t seen many high-neck bralettes, but my boobs can’t always be contained in the lower ones. I’ll definitely check these out!

    • Taylor Mobley | 19th Jul 17

      LOL AMEN. High neck bralettes are my FAVORITE. Kohl’s has SO MANY.

  20. Hannah | 19th Jul 17

    Love these looks and how you styled the bralettes!

  21. Lecy | A Simpler Grace | 19th Jul 17

    I love the way you styled these! I’ve always wanted to try something like this but don’t want to wear them alone. Layering is a great idea!

  22. ShootingStarsMag | 19th Jul 17

    All of these are super cute looks – I really love the last one though!

  23. Chelsea | 19th Jul 17

    This post is soooo informative, Taylor! I’m obsessed with bralettes!

  24. Amy | 19th Jul 17

    Nice post! I’m terrible with bralettes – I never know what to do with them and they often end up just sitting in a drawer. Thanks for the ideas!

  25. Elizabeth Johnson | 19th Jul 17

    I love the choices you made! I don’t buy bralettes because they are always styled too scandalous and as a mom of two I need to dress accordingly. Very modest yet flirty!

    • Taylor Mobley | 20th Jul 17

      Exactly!!! I hope you’ll try them out this way!

  26. Chelsea Pearl | 20th Jul 17

    This is a refreshing and classy take on the bralette! I like them, but I don’t always want to look like I’m going to a festival haha. Love how you styled them!

  27. Kileen | 20th Jul 17

    I love how the bralette peeks out of your tops!

    cute & little

  28. Mandy | 20th Jul 17

    I love the way that you styled your bralette. Sometimes I find they look a little too sexy. This was perfect!


  29. Adaleta | 20th Jul 17

    What a great way to style them, you still look cute and can go for a more professional look!

  30. Erica @ Coming Up Roses | 20th Jul 17

    BUT HOW CUTE ARE YOU THO?!?! Answer V CUTE. I lovelovelove Kohl’s, and I lovelovelove bralettes, and I lovelovelove ow you styled each AND that they’re modest and not just showing skin. Four for you, Glen Coco. Four for you. <3

  31. Thomas Falkenstedt | 20th Jul 17

    This goes to show how versatile a bralette is as you can dress it up or down depending on your mood and with slight adjustments you get a whole new look. Love how you did that! 🙂

  32. courtney | 22nd Jul 17

    I loved this post Taylor! I am all about modesty and I have actually never seen bralettes with such great high necklines!

  33. adriana | 23rd Jul 17

    I loove bralettes!! You styled these looks beautifully girl!!

  34. Kristen | 25th Jul 17

    Hey girl! Love how you shared so many ways to style a bralette. I have a couple and I wear them the same way every time. I can not wait to try some of your ideas! XO

  35. Bryanna | 25th Jul 17

    Love this! That last look is by far my fav. I have a teal one just like it, and I always gravitate towards styling it the sporty way. They give such an interesting vibe to the look, and I wish more people rocked them! You are totally right, #modestisthehottest 🙂

    xoxo Bryanna
