Don't be fooled by first impressions. While the black-and-white polka dots on this bra may appear sweet and disarming, add some black lace and silk georgette and suddenly it becomes a weapon. With a slight long line shape and a considerable strap, the piece recalls a classic 1950s cut — a power play from Dolce & Gabbana, who know how to make every lingerie moment practically cinematic.
Dolce & Gabbana lace-trimmed stretch-silk Georgette balconette bra, $495 at Net-a-Porter.
