Are You With The Band?

-------

Exposed lingerie was a big story on the Spring runways. At the recent Resort collections, designers tweaked the trend, swapping bras for bandeaux. Echoing the 1940′s by way of the seventies, Yves Saint Laurent‘s Stefano Pilati paired his with turbans and high-waisted skirts that left the models’ toned midriffs exposed. Others took a more covered-up approach, pairing theirs with a tweedy skirtsuit (Marc Jacobs) or a sporty leather bomber and shorts (Bottega Veneta‘s Tomas Maier). Maria Cornejo told Style.com, “I really like the clean line of a bandeau. It’s low-cut, flattering, and more interesting than a bra.” But not exactly sidewalk-ready when worn on its own—so she suggests layering one underneath a dress or jumpsuit for a playful look.

    A nice selection of looks that would be stunning to be used on weekends at the club by the pool, beach or in a nice hotel in the mountains on vacation. Very chic!

    Bandeaus have been a staple of my summer wardrobe thus far- I’ve found that they also work well under loose fitting tanks with low sides. If you have the confidence, I say go for it.
