Celebrities have been liking the black lace trend for a number of months now, each taking it to more and more adventurous levels than the last. But because the look is a hair short of walking out of the house in lingerie, it just never seemed incredibly approachable–until now. Out at dinner last night, I came across a woman wearing the trend just like the celebs: black lace top, black bra, nothing else. OK, so I’m not condoning you do the same, but black lace can be pretty without being tacky. Here are a few numbers that do the trend right without baring all.

Wear this basic Free People Scandalous Lace Top ($48) over your favorite black cami and under a blazer for a sexy, yet functional day to night look.

For a luxurious take on the trend, try topping off a pencil skirt and pumps with this Robbi & Nikki Ruffle Lace Halter ($165) with its delicate pattern and cascade of ruffles.

Keep your look subtle by just wearing lace on your back–this is a great way to show off your time spent at the gym. The C&C California Lace Back Tank ($45) has a pretty cowl neck front, to boot.

DVF Hasina

Lastly, consider this Diane von Furstenberg Hasina Top ($179) a trend with a twist in dark violet. It’s less harsh than a jet black top and the classic scoop neck and lace sleeves give it just a touch of sex appeal.
