Ever wonder why some women turn more heads than others? No its not just their prettiness or figure, but actually their confidence that oozes sexiness. Sexy does not mean skimpy clothing, nudity has no correlation to sexiness but confidence does.
Todays blog is going to be about bringing out your feminity in a manner which is you and not inspired by the latest item song. The other day I was reading an article on Iconic saree blouses of bollywood but all they showcased were actually brassieres and not blouses. So, here are some pointers on being a head turner and not the latest pinup girl :

1. Sheer : Net, georgette, chiffon, organza, chanderi are all transparent fabrics which have structure and form. Net sleeves may not be all that sexy as they tend to highlight the flaws, but sheer backs are super sexy. Or even sheer necklines especially your shoulders. They are not revealing but the little skin through the fabric can be super sexy but in an elegant manner.

E.g.(a) Blouses with low backs but covered with sheer fabrics.

(b) Dresses with a sheer edging for around 2 inches, they are longer but sexy at the same time.

2. Structure: Fabrics which are form fitting not tight fitting give you the best fit. Always ensure proportions in clothes you choose as it gives one the hourglass shape and nothing is more attractive.

E.g. (a) Cigerrete pants with jacket kurtas spell elegance and a hint of oomph.

(b) Bandaid knee length dresses are considered sexy for a reason.

3. Seams : Necklines and hemlines are considered the measuring point of sexiness of an outfit. So does that mean plunge down and ride up, definitely not. The secret is the correct balance of skinshow if at all needed. If you are wearing deep necklines, then ensure you have long hemlines and if super short bottoms then full necks work like wonders. Structure of outfit speaks more volumes than plunges.

E.g. (a) Opting for ankle length pants with long kurtas not only add structure but just the sliver of your ankle can be seductive.

(b) Wearing a wrap top with a deep V with trousers balances the outfit impeccably.

4. Slits : slits are always considered sexy, yes the most common form is in gowns which are known to go up thigh high. But why would you want to be textbook sexy?

E.g. (a) Sleeves can make or break your look, how about adding a slit to a high necked blouse, or to a cap sleeve of a collared Kurta.

(b) A women’s waist is considered the sexiest part of her body, cut out tops and dresses work but if you are super conscious then sheer covered ones do as well.

5. Shoulderless : off shoulder or wide necks can be more appealing than backless or plungers. It not only gives you a toned look but also adds a little pizzaz to a boring outfit.

E.g (a) Lace blouses with wide deep necks where the lining starts from above the cleavage or the pair it with an opaque saree to turn up the heat.

(b) The oldest fashion but even still is classic sexy, jeans with an off shoulder peasant top. Works always and looks good on all body types.

6. Stripes and spots : its not only materials but even prints are considered alluring. Animal print is always known to up the oomph factor but then again it should be minimal and not the entire outfit which ends up screaming look at me.

E.g. (a) Pair a plain solid coloured saree with a cap sleeved cheetah print blouse instead of wearing an entire saree.
image

(b) Leopard print shoes or a clutch paired with jumpsuit with a single gold accessory that is statement chic and sexy.

Thus, smoky eyes are sexy but with nude lipsticks, red is a staple sexy but try some in oxblood but with a little gloss. Hairstyles can create a look, open hair is sexy but so are messy braids so experiment. Your glowing skin and confidence teamed together make you more alluring, and by carrying your clothes correctly even more so.

There is a thin line between subtle and over the top and at times we can be more the latter. Leather is considered the sexiest material but the truth is it only looks good when worn right, leather pants are gone , the latest trends are of skirts and dresses. Knee length, A line or flared keep you away from looking dominatrixy and keeps you looking trendy. Lace and animal prints are where we make the most errors. Too much of lace sometimes can make one look like a tablecloth and animal print in excess turns you into Jane. So, be careful while choosing those outfits, as lace dupattas can be as sexy as lace sarees and cheetah print shells as attractive as a shirt. Slits in an outfit overall can be confusing, pant slits are on the same level as skirt slits and sheer necklines classier than plunges.

Shoes are the sexiest accessory as they are statements, how gold or silver looks on your skin tone also sets the tone of your outfit. Looking sexy can also be important to keep your love life upbeat, you don’t have to be chikni chameli but attractive. Attractiveness is what keeps the spark, so be subtly sexy and with a combination of all the above in exact measures is what will make you a head turner, so start calculating and put your sexiest foot forward.
