Sheer lace has been a staple in the closets of many, but these pieces often have a shell underneath or offer the suggestion of skin without full-blown exposure. The peekaboo lace trend takes it a step further with very see-through lace, often without anything but undergarments beneath.

From skirts to tops, Burberry Prorsum's Spring 2014 collection was comprised almost entirely of revealing peekaboo lace, and Kim Kardashian was recently spotted in a long lace dress with just her bra and panties underneath. We're just going to say it: this trend isn't for the faint of heart!

If you love this look, we suggest wearing a mini-dress or leotard underneath the peekaboo lace. After all, you never know who you'll run into on or off campus! We also like the idea of a dress with peekaboo lace elements, rather than an entire dress with little underneath.

In the sample outfit below, we took a sheer lace dress and put a bright skirt over it. Wear a bustier top underneath the dress to keep from baring it all.

Here's our (modest) take...
