Some people feel as though the best fashion pushes the limits in creativity and sensuality, while others like to play things a bit safer. No matter where you fall on the spectrum, there are easy and trendy ways to do so this season that you can tailor to your own looks.
For example, if you’re only feeling mildly brave, you could take advantage of the off-the-shoulder trend. According to Refinery 29 contributor Ana Colon, the look has been one of the most prominently enduring, and sophisticated, ways to pull off a subtly sexy look for the last few years.
Instead of a slouchy, T-shirt style that hangs off your side, ramp up the sexiness with a wide band design that wraps all the way around your mid shoulders to your upper torso. The look is enticingly dramatic, and has been spotted on the likes of stars such as Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Dakota Johnson, Hailey Baldwin, and Selena Gomez.
Then again, if you want to walk on the wild side a bit, try incorporating sheer into your wardrobe. The fabric makes it easy to style your look as salacious as you want. Take a look at some of the latest designer dress collections for inspiration. You can wear a full top underneath a sheer dress with just a peak of skin, or sport nothing but a bralette—ala, Nikki Reed style. An article from Daily Mail showcased the pattern on her fashionable sheer top, which kept her outfit looking relatively conservative, while still staying true to the trendiest styles.
Finally, if you want to take things up a notch, and really go for shock and awe, there’s one surefire way to make a lasting impression this season. Some bold people are searching for fashion at adult and lingerie stores for looks that New York Times writer, Ruth La Ferla deemed, “sex-shop chic.”
The look was popular during shows for spring fashion week, with designers like Alexander Wang, Prada, and Marc Jacobs creating their version of sex-shop chic styles or hybrid styles that combined flowing skirts with skin-tight tops. Recently, stars like Rita Ora and Kim Kardashian were both spotted wearing dresses reminiscent of looks straight out off the runway and straight out of your friendly neighborhood sex shop. Each dress was made of skin tight latex that left absolutely nothing to the imagination. If you’re feeling brave enough, give the look a go for yourself. Just make sure the situation/event deems it appropriate.
What do you think of these boisterous styles and how bold is your style? Some looks are only for the brave, so are you an off-the-shoulder girl? Or are you willing to go with a full fledge latex bodysuit? The choice is yours!
