It's hard to remember a time when suits were considered boring and stuffy, reserved only for the office or serious occasions. These days, our closet doesn't feel complete without one. Think about it: When wouldn't a suit work? They can be worn casually, made to look fancy, and are also sexy as hell — especially when styled with a peek-a-boo bra, AKA a trend that's seemingly everywhere as of late.

Katie Holmes is the latest star to skip a shirt, wearing her blazer with a bralette in lieu of a top while on the set of a shoot. Along with her comfy satin pants, this outfit is one we’d dare ourselves to try during the holiday season. We can easily picture it replacing our go-to black dress for New Year's Eve.

It's definitely a trend to keep in mind for warmer weather. A bra and blazer is easy and breezy, and still works with a pair of shorts.
