And just like that… it's over. While the much-anticipated (and highly polarizing) sequel to Sex and the City has aired its final episode of the season, the show's endless fashion keeps on giving.

One Easter egg we've just picked up on? An absolutely gorgeous bra, effectively worn as a shirt. Sarah Jessica Parker, playing her career-defining character Carrie Bradshaw, was spotted in one of And Just Like That…'s final installments wearing a lacy Intimissimi bra layered under a shirt so sheer, it was barely there at all. Or rather, the shirt's lace print mirrored the bra beneath it so fluidly, it was like an optical, bra-centric illusion.

This is certainly not the first time we've seen a celebrity wearing a bra as a shirt — Megan Fox and Dua Lipa are frequent wearers of the trend, meanwhile Emily Ratajkowski practically invented the look — but SJP's subtle take on the challenging styling trick makes it feel more accessible than ever.

Parker's Intimissimi Daniela Pretty Flowers Balconette Bra features a black base with white contrast lace along the upper and lower seams and over the straps. It costs just $59 on the brand's website, and while that's a fair price for an article of clothing that's both innerwear and outerwear, we discovered the lace bra trend on Amazon and beyond for even cheaper.

This one from Smart & Sexy costs just $12 and features supportive, wide straps, while this Free People lace bralette is amazingly less only $20. This Heidi Klum Intimates bra is on sale for $20 and is a dead ringer for Parker's contrast lace version, or you could go for this Lefox style that comes with a matching pair of panties, all for under $18.

Nordstrom, too, has some great lace bras available that are worth showing off. This B.Temp'd bralette skips the fuss of underwire, while this Lively bra does offer underwire support but is still famously comfortable.

All in all, there are plenty of options for imitating this bold Bradshaw outfit at any price point. Shop our favorites below.
