Some time over the last three or four years, we ladies started letting our bra straps show.
Blame the Flashdance necklines if you will, but all of the sudden the piece of fabric that was once in poor taste is now a modern girl's favorite accessory.
And the influx of sheer fabrics in shirts and skirts and pants mean that it's not just the strap we let fly. The whole underwear game is fair play these days—provided the pieces are properly selected and the time, place, and audience are right.
