LifestyleFashion Week New York Fashion Week: Bras took over the spring/summer runways By Dana Reszutek email@example.com Updated September 14, 2016 5:27 PM Print Share fbShare Tweet Email The New York Fashion Week runways always present risqué trends that most of us wouldn't dare try. But with crop tops continuing their stay in our wardrobes for yet another season, it seems all but natural that NYFW designers would take the midriff-baring trend to another level. Bras as tops have taken over the fashion week runways, from bandeaus being paired with pants to sports bras representing a go-to casual look. Whether or not baring this much skin is your style, it seems like the crop top trend is about to get more, well, cropped. Here are some designers that ignored the top and embraced the bra as a look on its own.
