I have a question about off the shoulder t-shirts similar to those: is it ok to have your bra straps showing or do you have to wear a strapless bra?

so many women let their bra straps show, but i think its tacky, even with tank tops that have spaghetti straps. i mean it totally ruins the silhlouette. you have these beautful shoulders sloping down and doh, you hit these tacky straps on the sides. do what prep said, strapless bra --

With off-one-shoulder shirts like some of the Limited ones, it's sometimes ok (depending on the shirt) to wear a bra as long as you can put the strap down on your arm on the off-shoulder side so that the tshirt covers it (Does that make sense? I didn't describe it very well, I think...).

If the shirt is completely sleeveless, on one side or both, definitely wear a strapless bra. Sometimes they have built-in bras, though. As to tank tops, I hate the exposed-bra look, too. I just never buy tanks without a shelf bra if I can help it.

You could also check the "great shoes for under $100" (in shoes, shoes, shoes), "great bags for under $100" (handbags section), and the "customisations" (personal style) threads for inspiration

Love the Payless espadrilles Softgrey.

My favourite place for cheap chic is Ebay vintage clothing. Here's a couple of offerings from the US site.
