We've been following spring's crop-top trend on some of our favourite starlets for months, getting an advance taste for how to style them thanks to Los Angeles's flawless weather. But now a top even more revealing than the crop has entered our orbit, thanks to Kim Kardashian's Tuesday (April 14) outing in Paris.
What could be smaller than a crop top, you ask? A bra top! And Kim is far from the first to try the trend on for size.
It's no surprise that when we think of this particularly daring article, the first ladies to come to mind are some of the film and music worlds' most fashion-forward icons. Rihanna donned a denim version that paired perfectly with her upper-stomach tattoo while out in Manhattan a few weeks ago. Her eye-catching look paired the tiny topper with a graffiti'd trench and a pink bucket hat.
But the streets aren't the only place where underwear becomes outerwear. Model Karolina Kurkova was spotted last year at the Harper's Bazaar ICONS Celebration in a sleek cream suit with a wee black bralet underneath - a super-modern take on black-and-white tuxedo dressing.
Going back a few years, runways were awash in lingerie-inspired looks, from Isabel Marant's feminine, lace-edged version for Spring/Summer 2014 to edgier fare from brands like Givenchy and Kenzo.
