Can a Sports Bra be a Top?

Do men on dating apps lie about their height? Does Sunday night feel incomplete without an HBO drama? Is the day incomplete without a little sweet treat after dinner? You can see where we’re going with this. If it wasn’t abundantly clear, yes, a sports bra can be a top—and we’re going to give you two different ways to style one that prove our point. Because who wouldn’t want our clothes doing double duty?  

Sports Bra + Cargo Pants + Sneakers = Day-Time Cool 

Create a ‘90s-music-video-inspired look by pairing your favorite Sports Bra with baggy pants and chic sneaks. It’s a little boyish, a little sexy, and very comfortable. In the colder months, pop on a cool cropped puffer jacket, and for the warmer months, go bare or layer on an open, breezy button-down.

Sports Bra + Mini Skirt + Blazer + Heels = Night-Out Chic 

Make sure your blazer is oversized and your mini is micro (the bottom of the blazer should hit at the bottom of the skirt). Playing with proportions let’s your Sports Bra act like the finishing touch that makes the whole look possible. Finish it off with your favorite night-out shoe, and you’re ready for anything the evening throws at you.

Bonus: Most Valuable Layer 

The sheer trend isn’t going anywhere—turn your tried-and-true Sports Bra into a tiny, cropped top to pair under your see-through shirts or dresses. Because when you can see everything, the last thing you want to worry about is support.
