After wearing the same clothing or styles for many years on end, you might feel that a closet makeover would be a great way to add some sexiness to your wardrobe. There is no better time than right now to add some vavavoom to your wardrobe, and adding some edge with new colors and designs. It’s amazing what some updated pieces can do for not only your closet, but how you feel!
Lost your edge?
Although your old clothing may have served you well over the years, they might have lost their edge and initial appeal. Not only do styles and trends change, but so do you. The problem with this, is that when you do not feel bold in what you’re wearing, or feeling excited about wearing it, your confidence will be lower than it would have been. But think about what it feels like when you wear a new, well-fitting pair of jeans, compared to an old pair that have lost their punch. It’s a big difference!
A brave new world
Experimentation is key – try different combinations across the range of dressing sexy and check in with your own comfort level as you experiment. It could be a good idea to find what works for you, and having a few dressier options of that available, to be able to put together some sexier options across the range. But don’t get caught up in the technicalities. Dressing sexy should be fun – so go out and have fun while you do!
It goes without saying that you both look and feel better when you wear clothes that fit you properly. It seems obvious, but when you take a closer look, you will not believe how many of your existing clothes no longer suit your body!
In the process of overhauling your wardrobe, blogs, magazines, and even social media profiles can be very helpful in guiding you towards a new look (follow @fabeveryday on Instagram and my Fashion archives here on FabEveryday.com to see some ongoing inspiration). They are excellent sources of outfit inspiration, and once you start getting the idea of which direction you would like to follow, they can be invaluable in helping you see an idea through.
Create virtual boards of outfits that are sexy in your opinion and keep an eye on coming and going trends. Don’t be afraid to make a study of your favorite sexy outfits, but don’t forget to keep a balance between sexy and casual either. An outfit that tries too hard is seldom sexy. Then when you find what you’re looking for don’t forget to take action – those sexy jeans aren’t going to buy themselves, and when the perfect piece is sold out, it can be heartbreaking!
There’s something for everyone
Whether you are tall, short, large-chested or small, certain universal rules apply. Crewnecks will always make you look wider than V-necks, so choose wisely and opt for V-neck if you want to feel sexier. When it comes to sleeves, the most flattering option is a three-quarter cut. This is because they move the focus away from the hips. Finally, the final and most important rule for making the way you dress, sexy: Keep ‘em guessing. Don’t give up your sense of mystique for the sake of showing skin. Boost your look with great shoes and statement jewelry but keep it simple. The less you have going on in a given look, the better.
