The New Way To Show Off Your Bra In Public

The bra is the unsung hero of our wardrobe. And, these days, it's doing more than just pulling its weight behind the scenes. Our underwear drawer is experiencing a renaissance of sorts, and our bras are no longer content to play second fiddle to our favorite camisoles and blouses. As evidence, we offer the spring '14 runways at Isabel Marant, Michael Kors, and Jil Sander. This season's deliciously subversive trend is bringing our intimates into the limelight — outside the bedroom.
Bid adieu to those juvenile bra-strap reveals of yore, and embrace exposed-lingerie dressing with confidence. To help, we styled seven classy ways to flash your underpinnings — with ladylike midi-skirts, power suits, and deep-V-neck sweaters — without feeling too out there.
