In my opinion, Olivia's classic, ladylike style is marked by her attention to detail and chic femininity. She always looks perfectly put together, in an easy, effortless sort of way. So how do we feel about this exposed bra? To be perfectly honest, I'm kind of in love with it. I've decided there are a few simple rules to making it work though.
1. Keep the rest of the look conservative. Too much skin + exposed unmentionables and you might get picked up off the street corner.
2. No cleavage. The look should be subtle, but sultry. Demure, not pornographic.
3. Be intentional in selecting color. For something neutral, go with black (nude would just be weird.) If you want something bold, choose something complimentary to the rest of the outfit. Just throwing in a random red bra is a surefire way to look tawdry. But if it matches the floral pattern in the dress perfectly? Now we are talking.
So what do you think? If you're interested in trying the look, American Eagle (?!?) has a few cute options on the cheap...

p.s. As for exposed underwear... just... no. Never. Not ok.
