This fabric is so much more versatile than you think.

White lace is often kept for your wedding day, but stars like Katy Perry are about to give you multiple reasons why you shouldn't wait.

The lingerie look is hot right now, making Katy's sheer, white lace top right on trend. She layered it over a sexy bustier, but it would also look amazing over a bralette then paired with a leather mini skirt for your next night out. Roar!

Vanessa Hudgens is a vision in this white Zimmerman number mainly because of its lace and ruffle details. It's the perfect mix between sweet and sexy formal attire, but could also be down-played with sneakers and a crossbody bag for days when you feel like dressing up for no reason!

Who knew lace could be so casual? Alessandra Ambrosio's bohemian top (worn with jeans and sneakers) shows just how versatile white lace is and how perfect something like this is for everyday wear.

Camilla Belle's giving us major back-to-school vibes (in a completely cool and elevated way). Her lace top's innocent and delicate feel is juxtaposed by her leather skirt and boots—proving the fabric can be ultra-edgy too.

Karlie Kloss is a ladylike vision, as always, and is giving your last office look a run for its money. Rock a lace top (with a cami underneath) to work because it's incredibly appropriate and adds a sophisticated touch to any outfit.
