7 Easy Ways to Wear Bralette Tops Like a Celebrity

Celebrities have it pretty hard – they get criticized for practically everything that the public can scrutinize about them, including, but not limited to, their red carpet fashion. This puts them in a position to either mess up their image or be the trendsetters that can launch a thousand designers to their patterning tables. But what about when celebrities decide to strip down to their bralettes?

Here are seven celebrities that left their tops at home. Who do you think looked best?

1. Ashley Roberts

Cracked metallic, gold, and leopard, anyone? This unlikely combination is pretty difficult to pull off, but if you’re as gorgeous as Ashley Roberts, chances are you’ll be able to pull pretty much everything off (okay, so we’re a bit iffy on the leopard but the girl looks gorgeous anyway).

For the more faint-hearted, ditch the cracked texture for a soft gold and pair it with a leopard bralette. Switch the pumps for strappy gold sandals to complement a chunky oversized chain necklace and sparkly clutch. Oh, and we’d probably snip that black ribbon off the bralette too.

2. Kelly Rowland

Well, hello there, Kelly Rowland. The former ‘Destiny’s Child’ performer is channeling just a wee bit of her Survivor days, what with her clothes busting open in, err, very convenient areas. Nonetheless, we are loving this wardrobe malfunction-defying look on Kelly, and we give her an A+ for being able to keep her womanly bits in place.

The key to this look is fit – you have to make the silhouette work for your body type to get that balance of sexy and classy. Finish dressing up this black duo with gold accessories.

3. Selena Gomez

Selena Gomez was only a few months shy of her break up with Justin Bieber when she debuted this casual lingerie look; could this have been a foreshadowing of what was to come? Could Selena have been on the verge of going down the ill path trodden by many Disney stars who have gone before her, that is, towards a form of sexual rebellion (yes, Britney, we’re looking at you)? Personally, we think not.

The lovely statuesque Disney darling was a sight to behold in a white bandeau and high-waisted shorts worn with a padded blazer and nude pointed toe heels. Keep the look youthful but chic with a subtle graphic print.

4. Rita Ora

We’re not exactly sure what is going on with that monstrosity of jeans (at least, we think those are jeans), but we are fans of Rita Ora showing off that hard-earned body in a gorgeous mesh sporty bralet. You can choose a classier cut if you’re not really into the sporty trend, and pair with deconstructed and reconstructed jeans. Ditch the pink Peter Pan-themed heels for a hotter pair of pumps and grab a fun clutch to inject a little color into the look.

5. Alessandra Ambrosio

Okay so this one didn’t quite take place on the red carpet. Conspicuously styled as a Coachella look by the beautiful Alessandra Ambrosio, this outfit may also be dressed down for everyday summer wear by substituting the knee-high boots and boho accessories with dainty strappy flat sandal, a casual shoulder bag, and tone-down silver accessories.

For the trend conscious, this look also hits two birds with one stone – the matching two-piece trend and the bralet trend.

6. Ciara

Too nude for the red carpet? We beg to differ. This automatic-supersonic-hypnotic-funky fresh diva shows off her beautifully toned physique at the BET Awards in this gorgeous two-piece leather number. Ciara was able to pull off this almost-lingerie outfit without looking trashy with the help of her beautiful short hairdo and nude-toned lips. Switch up the patent silver pumps for a textured one to crank up the chic level in this look.
