Everyone likes looking good, but the line between dressing sexy and looking cheap can be thinner than you think. The best place to start is to wear what you love with confidence, and to make sure you feel comfortable in what you’re wearing.
Don’t be scared
The word “sexy” has become equal to very short pieces of clothing, and lots of skin on display, which is why many people experience some anxiety around dressing sexy! It takes a certain kind of person to be able to strut their stuff in skimpy clothing without feeling self-conscious, but contrary to common understanding, you don’t have to flash skin or wear heel so high, you fall over! Sexiness is in the eye of the beholder, and here’s why.
Dressing sexy is not limited to just a sexy dresses and accessories either. The correct use of make-up can boost your natural features, and the best part is – you don’t even have to overdo it! In fact, when it comes to makeup, the best way to avoid looking trashy, is to adhere to the “less is more” principle. The same goes for wearing properly-fitted clothing. Nothing is worse than someone trying to make clothing that doesn’t fit them properly, look sexy. Dressing sexy is actually much easier than it seems.
Take it up a notch
Of course there is a lot to be said for a pair of high heels. These terrifying, yet impactful shoes can make a massive impact to any outfit, whether you like wearing them or not. But a word of caution – if you feel like a newborn giraffe in the heels of your choice, chances are that you also look quite strange wearing them! The best tip is to pick shoes that you can still walk in, but which creates enough lift to show off your legs without having to show too much skin.
If you really can’t bear the thought of wearing heels, why not try wedges? They still give you a lift, but feel far more stable to walk in. Make sure you always leave something to the imagination, which means never showing too much skin. If you want to highlight your legs, by all means, show them off, but then balance it by wearing something more reserved on your top half.
Play around with looks
A sheer top will show off your assets, and can be worn without putting everything on show. Team it with a jacket over, or simple camisole underneath, to create a tasteful combination.
Experiment with your chest area – if you want to show off your legs, cover the chest, but if you want to play around with deep necklines, wear it with a pair of trousers for balance. You don’t always have to be dressed to the nines to be considered sexy. Wearing a plain t-shirt in the right way can make an outfit absolutely sexy. Nothing beats a semi-sheer blouse teamed with classy lingerie. Don’t forget the influence of jewelry on an outfit. It is the perfect finishing touch to add elegance and beauty to what you’re wearing.
