Showing some skin can be a scary thing to do, even when you're not at the beach. We've all had that moment when it feels like all eyes are on you, and your outfit's drawing the attention.

Plunging necklines are one of today's hottest trends — they're bold and risqué, but when styled well, the plunge can be tasteful and edgy at the same time.

Deep-V necklines have been popular for a while and aren't as shocking as they were in the beginning of their fame, but stepping out of your comfort zone can be intimidating. As long as Hollywood heiresses continue to sport the attention-grabbing trend, it feels a bit grandiose to wear as a college student.

A little bit of cleavage can be sexy and sophisticated in moderation, so why do we shy away from the plunge?

When choosing a look for the night, it's important to keep in mind that there's a fine line between fashionably risky behavior and being trashy. If you're styling a plunging neckline, be sure to remember these tips: 

1. Don't show too much cleavage. Gravity and the fact that bras are nearly impossible to wear with plunging necklines all but guarantee you won't have issues keeping your cleavage at bay. 

2. Wear it with long sleeves or long pants. Plunges already show a lot of skin, so balance it out with coverage elsewhere.

3. Maximize on its versatility. You can take them from day to night with a few simple accessories. A plunging jumpsuit with a pair of flat sandals and a sun hat is perfect for a summer brunch, but ditch the hat, swap the sandals for heels and add a leather jacket for a night on the town.

4. Take the plunge with confidence. It'll take any look to the next level.
