Once in a while, it can boost the mind and body to dress a little bit sexy. Everyone tells you not to try too hard, so how do you create that sexy look you’re after without too much effort, or ending up looking fake? No matter what your dress size is, here are a few tips you can use to make that sexy dress pop!
1. Choose your fabric
Showing a bit of skin through a sheer top is a great way create an alluring look without making yourself feel exposed. A bra or camisole in the same color as the top will create a classy, put-together look while keeping that sultry edge. The same rules count for a sexy dress of a sheer fabric.
2. Wear what fits
Clothes that are too small do not look fitted – they make you look bigger than you are, by creating the impression that you’ve outgrown your clothes, so to speak. There is a huge difference between sexy dresses that are too tight, and ones that are designed to be form-fitting. Pick the shape of your designs based on your body type, to ensure that you showcase what you consider to be your strongest assets.
For example: if you like what your arms look like, sleeveless dresses would be a great go-to for you. If you have a great, toned back, a dress with a low, open back will be just the thing, and of course, great legs always come into their own with a dress cut in the mini style. Skip the baggy look altogether, even if you are unsure about your figure, as, far from creating a casual look, this style can make you look frumpy.
3. Use shape and color to your advantage
If you are dressing for a certain occasion, and your sexy dress needs a few additions to protect you from the cold, steer clear of bulky clothing, and go for form-skimming sweaters.
Remember the golden of small of skin-tight – cover up.
What this means, is that when you wear form-fitting clothing, you need to leave something to the imagination, or risk looking trashy. If you are showing every curve through tight clothing, make sure it covers your skin. Conversely, the looser the dress, the more skin you can show. Of course, no-one says you have to stick to the rule, but this will depend on the kind of attention you are willing to attract!
4. What does it mean to be sexy, anyway?
The best answer to this question is to eliminate what is NOT sexy. To pull off your sexy dress look to perfection, avoid these pitfalls:
– Heaps of caked-on and baked-on makeup is never sexy
– Padded bras that create an aura of artificiality around your real shape, are not sexy
– Putting too much of your body up for display and not creating any mystique around your look, looks trashy, not sexy.
Follow these tips to steer clear of any tackiness, and enjoy flaunting that dress!
