Think the whole showing-off-your-bra-straps trend was a thing of the past? Get ready, because it’s baaaack! But if you’re silently freaking out about the return of those questionable bejeweled embellishments you rocked in junior high, don’t. Thanks to Victoria’s Secret, the old-school look just got way cooler for round two. The lingerie geniuses (who recently rolled out the new T-shirt bra) are introducing the Strappy-Back Bra, just in time for tank top weather. With multiple straps and a caged silhouette, consider this the latest closet essential that you didn’t know you needed...until now, that is. Just take it from VS Angel Karlie Kloss, who filled us in on the best ways to wear it.
What’s your favorite way to wear the Strappy-Back Bra?
I love wearing the Strappy-Back Bra with a sheer black racerback tank. You can see the silhouette and it’s a simple and sexy look.
What’s your summer uniform?
I live in my swimsuit during the summer. I love a comfortable yet chic look for the beach. I throw on a long light-weight Reformation dress over my Victoria’s Secret bikini, slip on a pair of sandals and am out the door.
What’s the one item in your closet you’ll never give away and why?
My jewelry is so personal to me. I wear my “K” charm necklace from Helen Ficalora, my Cartier Juste Un Clou bracelet and my Thea “Karlie” ring every day. To me, these items are priceless.
