(SPOT.ph) Oftentimes, the clothes that we use the most are those that are versatile enough for a variety of occasions. Think of those sandals that you can dress up for formal occasions or down for casual brunches; or that plain tank top that goes as well with your old blue jeans as it does your snazzy blazer. That’s why any time we spot fashion finds that serve several purposes, we’re immediately intrigued—we know they can quickly become closet staples. And if you, too, love multifunctional styles as much as we do, we’ve got the list for you. Below, we round up 10 no-frills sports bras you can shop locally right now. These tops offer built-in padding and support ideal for exercises and other physical activities, but they also feature minimalist designs that let you wear them with casual bottoms, jackets, and shoes of all colors and silhouettes.
