Pin Money Fashion: Understated sexyWritten by Lauren O'Neill | | firstname.lastname@example.org
There are so many characteristics in a woman that can make her sexy. Whether it’s personality, confidence, the way she walks, talks or nurtures — sexiness can come in many forms. Beyond characteristics, clothing and fashion are really what make a woman look professional, cute, casual or sexy. A pantsuit, a cute sweater and jeans, or a form-fitting dress can truly change how a woman feels, looks and presents herself.
Overall, professional looks are pretty standard. There’s the basic pantsuit or blazer and pin skirt. Casual looks are pretty standard as well. It’s easy to throw on a pair of jeans, a cute pair of sandals and fitted tee. The look that seems easy but can be difficult to conquer is the sexy look.
Sexy seems like a no-brainer to most women because it seems mindless to throw on a form-fitted skirt, a low-cut top, or a fitted dress and a pair of heels. Undoubtedly, most women are noticed in these looks, but they are not always seen as sexy. The sexiest thing a woman can wear is something understated. Here is a list of the sexiest understated looks for this season that any woman can wear.
A woman’s shoulders and neckline are truly beautiful. Unfortunately, women do not always have the opportunity to show off this area due to the cut of many shirts and dresses. However, this season there are a variety of off-the-shoulder dresses and tops. The off-the-shoulder look is so unexpected that it’s sexy.
What I love about this look is a woman can throw her hair back in a low bun or ponytail, wear minimal makeup and still look sexy and gorgeous. This look is perfect for a wedding or date night. Missselfridge.com has a variety of off-the-shoulder dresses for around $42. Off-the-shoulder is a must this season and works for women at any age.
There is something so sexy about a ladylike look on a woman. The ladylike look is clean and put together and is modest yet accentuates. One of the hottest and most ladylike fashion trends this season is peplum. Peplum is a flared ruffle that sits around the waist of a dress, skirt or top. The ruffle makes the look feminine, but also accentuates a woman’s waist and bust, making for an understated yet sexy look. H&M has an adorable gray peplum dress for $34.95. This look can be found everywhere right now relatively inexpensively.
Although it may seem obvious, sheer is a very sexy look. Sheer is super hot this season in short dresses, maxi dresses and blouses. The look, which shows some skin without being too revealing, takes on a flowy Grecian feel and can be casual or extremely formal.
A sheer dress with a slip underneath is a sexy look for a lunch date or an evening out. Dorothyperkins.com has a few sheer dress varieties starting at about $21 — a beautiful and inexpensive addition to your wardrobe this season.
Color is hot this season and gets you noticed, but one of the sexiest and most underestimated looks a woman can wear is head-to-toe neutrals. This look is clean, classic and fresh. Any woman is sure to turn heads in all neutrals because, again, it is very unexpected but looks sexy and put together. H&M has a gold and tan miniskirt for around $20 that looks fabulous paired with a white sheer blouse like the one at Old Navy for $30. Head-to-toe neutrals is the perfect look for any occasion.
One of my personal favorite sexy looks is a dress with a front that covers everything and a back that covers nothing. An open-back dress is one of the most beautiful and sexy items any woman can wear. I love the idea of accentuating a part of a woman’s body that is rarely displayed yet makes such a statement when it is. An open-back dress or top is perfect for a night on the town or even a wedding. Find a variety of open back dresses at missselfridge.com for around $65.
The ultimate forms of sexiness in a woman are confidence, personality, humor, wit, smarts, independence and the list goes on. Although for some women it may be easy to display their sexiness with these characteristics alone, it doesn’t hurt to wear an item that makes us feel sexy as well. Remember, less is more when it comes to looking and feeling sexy.
