Dressing Sexy and Wearing It Well
Confidence is the main hallmark of someone who dresses sexy. In reality, there is no such thing as “sexy clothes” – the sexiness of the outfit comes from the wearer! No matter what you’re wearing, if you’re not wearing it with the right attitude, you can consider the outfit a failure. Sexiness doesn’t mean skin and skimpiness – sexiness comes with the confidence with which you can wear something as simple as a plain white t-shirt.
Heels can definitely contribute to your overall confidence by adding height to your stature and giving your backside a lift. They don’t need to be six-inch heels that make you feel like you’re walking on stilts. All you want is something high enough to add a bit of shape to your legs, without the need for showing too much skin. Wedges are a great secondary option if you struggle with the idea of walking in high heels. They are significantly easier to wear, and go a long way on making you look like a million bucks!
Take the curve
Speaking of a million bucks – ever noticed how a great-fitting pair of jeans gives you that feeling too? Jeans are great for dressing sexy, as they allow you to work your figure in a sophisticated way. Keep an eye out for denim with a bit of stretch, combined with a darker wash. This is the most flattering combination for most body types. Pick an appropriate jeans style for your build and your age. No-one looks good in jeans that were probably made for their kid!
Try new things, and don’t be scared to try new things if you are struggling to find something that works for you. Just because you tried something and it didn’t work, doesn’t mean that everything you try is doomed to fail. Experiment with small amounts of newness at a time, like a lower neckline or a midriff top. See how you feel in different clothing styles, and make your choices on what you feel bold and adventurous in!
It’s about the illusion
A V-neck top is a safe way to dress sexier, as it reveals bit of skin without giving the game away, and as a bonus creates a lengthening and slimming effect across your whole body! Again, if the idea of experimentation overwhelms you, and a pair of heels to the outfit. They are the shortcut route to making an everyday outfit bolder and more adventurous. (And don’t feel bad for needing to practice walking in those heels at home!)
Keep it classy
Sexy and classy can be the same thing, although the word “sexy” has developed a bit of a trashy stigma over time. It is perfectly possible to combine pieces in a way that is simultaneously classy and alluring. Use examples from the media and fashion icons to help you shape your own unique meaning and style around what is considered sexy. Stay away from trashy, teen trends for a guaranteed way to keep your look sophisticated.
