Seven Colorful Bras You Should Totally Show Off in Public

Your bra has always been an important accessory—and when summertime rolls around, the lingerie staple becomes even more stylishly vital. When the weather's warm, opt for fun, colorful bras that'll make your white-tank-and-jeans outfits really pop. They're so bold and fun, there's no need to wrestle with fashion tape and safety pins to keep errant shoulder straps at bay. In fact, why not open another button on your blouse and let these straps show? (Unless, of course, your job doesn’t allow it—in which case it's best to wait until 6 pm.)
