Black lingerie never goes out of style and is essential in your undergarment closet. Even if you only buy one sexy black lingerie set, you’ll always have a timeless look on standby. Add to that the fact that black works with every skin tone and that the color holds up well over time.
Here are 15 black lingerie looks we love, from lacy to sexy to affordable and more.
Here are three classic black lingerie looks to wear when you want to feel sexy but also work every day.
1. Bluebella Colette Bra and Colette Brief
This black lingerie set is an instant classic. It features sheer mesh fabric with an embroidered floral design and the bra has unpadded underwire cups. The bottoms feature a cheeky back cutout to enhance your derriere.
2. OW Intimates Layce Bra and Layce Thong
This bra and thong are made of delicate eyelash lace that perfectly hugs your curves. Sheer but not see-through this set is a seductive contender for date night.
3. Simone Perele Karma Demi Bra and Karma Tanga
This scalloped lace bra and thong are as chic as it gets and happens to be flattering on all body types. Added bonus, the bra is convertible so can wear it crisscross under a top on a night out.
These looks are ten out of ten on the hotness scale, proceed with caution.
4. Thistle and Spire Sidney Thong Teddy
You’re guaranteed to take someone’s breath away when you step out in this number. This bra, garter belt, and thong teddy creates an hourglass silhouette using tonal lace and is a striking lingerie look to wear for special occasions.
5. Savage X Fenty Embroidered Lace Corset
