Sheer bralettes are shirts in the same way that leggings are pants. In 2007, Lindsay Lohan wore leggings every day, everywhere; so much so that she ended up launching a leggings-specific clothing line in 2008 (only to be sued by the same company in 2013. The Legging Love Story ended in heartbreak).
Today, Kendall Jenner is championing the bralette with the same gusto. Throughout the month of April, Jenner has worn two Anine Bing bralettes: the first, naturally, at Coachella; the second — paired with a Naeem Khan suit — at Gigi Hadid and Kylie Jenner's joint birthday party in New York last night.
See the non-shirts in action below, and be prepared for more down the pipeline: Victoria's Secret has officially declared bralettes far sexier and superior to padded push-up bras.
