It may be skin-baring season, but showing tons of skin doesn’t always translate to sexy. Why do you think long dresses with a sultry slit look sensuous? It’s all in the suggestion, the sneak peek. As the saying goes, less is more. Here, we’ll show you how to strike the right balance this summer!
1. Pick one part of your body to highlight.
Imagine wearing a short, skin-tight, sleeveless bodycon–it’s highlighting every part of your body all at the same time. Choose one part of your body you want to focus on for a sexy yet chic feel. If you want to show off your legs, wear a non-sleeveless top. If you want to show off some cleavage, wear longer trousers. The perfect example? An off-shoulder jumpsuit–it will leave your shoulders bare, accentuate your collarbones, and hide everything else.
2. Go for dramatic fabrics like sheer and lace.
It’s an ideal way to show some skin, while still covering up–as long as you’re not wearing a crop top or bra underneath a sheer top, of course. Lace, on the other hand, will naturally give a sultry feel to your look, even without baring some skin.
3. Pair a loose-fitting top with a body-hugging bottom.
Body-hugging bottoms like a pencil skirt accentuate your waist, while a loose top offsets it, making you look effortlessly sexy.
