Sarah Jessica Parker has always had a little bit - okay, a lot of bit - of Carrie Bradshaw in her. They both live in NYC, love shoes, and cultivate exceptional wardrobes (think: cool jeans, silk tops, ethereal dresses, and sexy bras). If you've watched even a single episode of Sex and the City, you know that Bradshaw's sexy lace and mesh bralettes were just as integral to her outfits as her shoes and her bags. Some think bras should be hidden; Bradshaw knows they're for showing off.

Parker clearly has a similar styling mentality. She's worn red-carpet outfits that centered the undergarment, and most recently, she approached the lingerie-as-outerwear trend in a way that's slightly controversial, seriously sexy, and totally wearable for everyday. Yes, it's time to wear bras again.

SJP flashed her bra while helping people shop for shoes in her NYC flagship store, SJP by Sarah Jessica Parker. On the scorching-hot day, she was wore a button-up midi dress, SJP by Sarah Jessica Parker Zizi mules, a green face mask, and a black mesh bra that ever so slightly peeked out. The look had Bradshaw written all over it.

Parker's outfit is a great example of how to introduce exposed lingerie into your own looks. No, you don't have to go fully topless; make like Parker and let a little bit show from underneath a low-cut top or dress. And don't just go with any regular ol' bra - pick one with a little more pizzaz and elevation, like a mesh or lace option.
