It's "the fashion faux pas of the summer" says the Daily Mail: yep, now is the time of year when those visible bra straps start to emerge. According to a Wonderbra survey, 57 per cent of women say it's summer's worst style crime; a third of women think it looks cheap; and 42 per cent of men deem VBS unattractive.
Steady on, we say. Visible bra straps can be a great look (see the divine Gwen Stefani, left, and Amy Winehouse in her yellow Sloggi) - provided they're pretty straps in a zingy colour, of course. But if it really does bother you, best stick to strapless, eh?
