Rocking a sexy dress is easier than you think
Relax. Ok – now that we have that our of the way – relax! I’m serious – this is the one part that people forget when they go on the hunt for a sexy dress that ticks all the boxes. In the history of finding the perfect sexy dress, no good thing has ever come from acting under pressure. When you need to find “that dress”, you would be well advised to take a step back and observe the landscape – perhaps you’ll even find something amazing where you weren’t expecting to find it!
Keep it classy
Long gone are the days where a sexy dress was skimpy thing that showed too much skin. This is a recipe for self-consciousness, and the sexiest dress on earth is worthless if the wearer is not confident wearing it. If you experience even the vaguest hint of feeling trashy in the dress you thought you liked – stay away! If it affects your self-confidence at all, you should not wear it.
Stick to your size
Another long-held misconception if that smaller clothes are sexy. In truth, going for clothes that don’t fit you well, makes you look like you don’t know what you’re doing, and an otherwise wonderfully sexy dress will be completely wasted if you don’t wear the right size for you. In fact, far from achieving a sexy look, clothing that is too small for you can make you appear far bigger than you are!
To combat the shoehorned-in appearance, rather take ownership of your actual size, and pick a style that highlights everything you like about your body. Small waists can be showed off by picking a dress with a cinched middle, while a mini-style dress will show off your pins to perfection.
Keep them guessing
Rule one of sexy dresses club is: never show off what you can cover. Sexiness is not exhibitionism – it is a fine art of keeping your mystique and dignity, while rocking the socks off what you consider to be your leading assets. For example – if you are the proud owner of a killer pair of legs, it is likely that you would feel confident displaying them – so do that! But always be sure to balance your top half with something more modest, to prevent things from looking like you’re letting it all hang out.
Rule two is: just because it’s trendy, doesn’t mean it’s sexy! Magazines and advertisements will lead you believe anything, but remember that its their job to sell this merchandise. Stick to what you know about yourself. Picking your dress according to classic designs will seldom backfire, and you will feel all the more confident for wearing it.
The classic trick of throwing a good pair of heels into the mix works. A bit more height to your stature, and the automatic straightening effect that heels have on the posture, will give your confidence a mega boost. Stick to your style, as always, and make sure that the shoes you pick, are comfortable.
