“If you got it, flaunt it, boy I know you want it …”
People always ask why I’m so quick to throw on a ‘freakum dress’. The truth is, I just love the way my body looks in them!
I’ve learned over the years there’s a huge difference in dressing sexy versus dressing trashy. I’m talking Jada Pinkett-Smith, Tracee Ellis-Ross, grown-woman-sexy. I have a few rules I apply when dressing sexy, I wanted to share them with you so that you can implement them into your closet.
Find Your Confidence. Nothing’s more annoying than an insecure girl in a tight dress. So if you’re going to wear that sexy little number, you better OWN IT honey. That means quit tugging at your skirt rising, or pulling up your low cleavage, because you clearly bought the wrong size if you have to keep adjusting it. Go confidently in your look. The sexy outfit is only half of the statement, the way you look and feel in it is what truly matters.
Find Balance. My rule of thumb in dressing sexy and not trashy is to choose a focus. Everything should not hang out! If you’re going to wear your midsection out, then consider covering your thighs with pants or a midi dress/skirt. If you’re thighs or legs will be out, cover up your top. You tend to look a little ‘Snooky-Jersey-Shore’ trashy if you wear your stomach, thighs, and cleavage out at the same time. It can be overwhelming to say the least. So find a focus and balance everything you wear around that.
*Style Tip – If you’re a pear shape like me with wide hips and a small waist, focus on your small waist. When I’m feeling sexy I always go for a crop top. I focus on my waist being exposed and I usually cover my thighs for balance.
Accessorize. This may be my second favorite way to dress up my sex appeal. Accessories take you a long way. Those elongated earrings always makes me feel like a hottie; especially if I’m wearing a basic dress. A sultry lip can easy dress up your look. And let’s not forget, the shoes always makes the outfit. My current fave is a strappy block heel. The straps scream sex appeal, while the block heel finds a balance so that I don’t look like I’m trying too hard.
Bottom line, find your groove that works for you and rock with it. For me, I always go for effortless sex-appeal. I never want to look like I’ve planned my outfit out days in advance.
