How to Style a Hi Neck Bralette

Our bralettes are made to peek out from tees and tanks and the Hi Neck Bralette is no exception! Cara from A Fashion Love Affair makes the hi-neck silhouette and pretty v-detail front and center by pairing it with the Wraparound Top.

How to Style a Hi Neck Bralette“I absolutely love anything lace-it is just so pretty! Especially white lace, it is so romantic. I wanted to let a bit of the lace bralette peek out while still having a day ready look, so I paired it with the wrap sweater ( which I also love, reminds me of my ballet days!) keeping it cozy & playful.”

Whether your style is edgy or classic, our Fashion Jackets can help complete your #OOTD. We’re loving the mix of rustic wool plaid and edgy moto styling of our Plaid Moto Jacket and the classic look of our Faux Shearling Moto Jacket.

Check out how bloggers Cara from A Fashion Love Affair and Lauren from Fashionably Lo styled our two favorite Moto Jackets below.

What Inspired Cara’s Outfit:
I fell in love with this jacket, it is the perfect combo between cozy and cool, pairing perfectly with torn denim as it does with a long maxi dress. I chose to style the jacket with black jeggings and black knee high boots (loving this trend!) to really pull the focus of the look to the jacket.  The jacket is a great way to easily pull color and print into your look with just one piece!AEOSTYLE CHALLENGE: MOTO JACKET

What Inspired Lauren’s Look:
Winter in the south means hot one day, cold the next (literally) so I have become a huge fan of layers. This moto Jacket is the perfect piece to layer on top of a sweater dress with a faux fur snood for a colder night and can easily be worn with jeans a tee for something a little more casual for one of these 70 degree days.
