Summer style is often associated with a looser interpretation of the public dress code, meaning bikini bottoms, playsuits, and more are fair game. This year, we noticed some ladies losing another layer, namely, their underwear. Whether the trend was born of a reaction to the soaring temperatures, a desire to appear edgier, or just a personal preference is unclear. A major street style development — less about the clothes and more, well, about what women are not wearing — took the fashion world by storm.
Going braless is definitely trendy, and it's also now part of a larger movement. Today, Oct. 13, has been christened #NoBraDay. The date was selected right in the middle of Breast Cancer Awareness month in order to spread the word about the disease. The idea is that, by going braless, women will think about their breasts, and in so doing, give themselves a self-check or schedule an appointment for their mammogram.
It's a great cause, but going braless may be easier said than done. The au naturel look is a pretty common occurrence in the model world and certainly in the fashion crowd, but with real women taking on the trend, it begs the question: would you do it, too? Scroll to see how the braless trend is taking over, and then let us know what you think.
