This Pretty (But Basic) Underwear Trend Never Fails to Make Me Feel Fancy

Let's talk lingerie trends. Currently on deck for 2021 are a few fresh styles I'm personally excited about, such as boy shorts and boxers. But if classic staples are more your speed or you're just curious about the lingerie items that will stand the test of time, look no further than lace pieces. Lace lingerie, specifically lace underwear, is one of those items I'm convinced will never go "out" no matter how many trend reports may come and go. It's more of a basic, but a delightful and delicate basic at that.

Right now, I'm all about updating those "special basics" throughout my closet. I have my eye on a number of pretty lace pieces that I think will make great additions to my top drawer. The only hitch is that there are a dizzying number of options out there. Search "lace underwear" into any retailer's search bar, and I guarantee you'll be flooded with a ton of hits, so I'm streamlining the process and highlighting the prettiest pieces in every underwear type, from thongs to briefs to boy shorts. Scroll down to shop the best lace underwear in every category.

Hanky Panky's signature thong comes in a ton of color options, but you can't go wrong with beige.

FYI, each thong is just $3.60 in this multipack. Just saying.

These autumnal colors feel especially right for now.

Boy Shorts

I've always overlooked boy shorts in the past, but these pretty options have my attention.


These offer two trends in one: lace and mesh.

This female-owned brand has the most stunning designs.
