Flirty doesn’t always have to mean highly sexualized plunging necklines and super short skirts. Inserting a little romance into your ensemble is enough for subtle flirting. On that note, what other fabric spells romance like lace does? If full-on lace skirts seem a little too romantic for your workplace, however, we suggest trying lace-trimmed skirts.

See how we’d wear the trend:

1. Throw on a long sweater.

Do a peek-out-on-a-peek-out by letting just a little bit of the solid skirt part peer out from underneath a long top. This also gives the illusion of a dress. Pair it with black pumps or tasseled slipper flats.

2. Play with panels and textures.

If your workplace allows an outfit that’s less held back (such as graphic design firms and fashion publishing houses), play around with interesting pieces that let only the lace peek out, such as this leather-paneled dress with a ribbed knit body. Pair it with a leather cap, booties, and a studded jacket to add more oomph.

3. Go for sweet-on-sweet.

Another piece that definitely says romance is the still-trending peplum top. To toughen the romantic black lace look, choose a peplum top in matching black leather, paired with leather boots. Throw on a bright red coat for that pop of color, and you’re good to go.

4. Give it a good rip.

Another one for the less-strict workplace: to crank up on the contrasts, choose an edgy ripped crop top to go with your lace-hemmed skirt. Ankle-length zip-up boots look gorgeous with this ensemble, but you can switch them up for a pair of pumps for a more businesslike finish.

5. Go monochrome.

Another way to play with the lace-trimmed skirt is to choose a monochromatic scheme to go with it. Choose a sweater and a skirt in the same family of colors but in different tones. Accessorize with a similarly colored tote or handbag and shoes.
