How to look sexy but elegant at the same time




Is it possible to combine both elegant and sexy at the same time ?

There is a thin line between sexy and trashy. A plunging neckline can make you look both sexy and elegant if you wear it right. However, a wrong cut can harm more than you think. This is the case with most of the other fashion staples: heels, lipsticks, bags, hairstyle, etc. Here’s how you can look sexy but elegant at the same time:

1. Choose the right heels:

There are women who think sky-high heels are sexy. No ladies, they are not. There is nothing more unattractive than a woman limping around in sky-high heels. Choose heels that are comfortable to walk in. At the moment, pointed heels are in vogue. They are not only sexy, but also elegant. If you are a flats girl, know that it is okay to skip the heels — gladiator sandals are as hot as your pair of sexiest heels. And, so are oxford flats.

2. Choose the right hairstyle:

A good hairstyle will add grace and charm to your personality. Messy ponies on round faces instantly attract attention. Take a cue from Gigi Hadid and tie your hair into a high pony the next time you step out. The Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, has proved time and again that bangs can be both elegant and sexy. For a formal evening, chignons will always remain a favorite. Likewise, effortless curls also add a pinch of glamour instantly.

3. Wear Gloves:

Ever since we saw a picture of Victoria Beckham in Alexander McQueen Opera Gloves, we have been sold out on gloves. If there is a single accessory that can immediately add elegance and sexiness to your personality, it is gloves. You can choose from suede, velvet, or leather. Leather gloves can be difficult to pull off, but if you can do them justice, we will recommend wearing them again and again.

4. Choose the right skirt:

That skirt with emoji print should go out of your wardrobe. Replace it with a good pencil skirt. Pencil skirts are a fashion staple. From formal shirts to lace and crop tops, they can be paired with anything. Pencil skirts define your shape — they also make you look thinner and curvier.

5. Carefully choose your red lipstick:

Nothing screams sexy and elegant like a red lipstick. However, when it comes to the red lipstick, women often choose the wrong color and end up getting disappointed.

If you are very fair, use a bright red lipstick. However, if your skin tone is warm, a fiery red shade will suit you more. We must warn you though: wear red only if you have to confidence to pull it. On an under-confident woman, a red lipstick only looks misplaced.


6. Stockings:

We are a fan of sheer stockings. They highlight bring a woman’s femininity and sexuality. A the same time, printed stockings are hideous and are incapable of alleviating any attire — stay away from them.

7. Bag:

Bag is the most understated fashion accessory. To perk up your style, always carry a good bag. Sling bags and cross body bags look really good with ripped jeans and dresses. A good clutch will make your beloved gown even more sexier. And, a good tote will add elegance and style to your entire look. We recommend spending in high-end labels like Chanel, Dior, Hermes, and Louis Vuitton. Though these are slightly heavier on the pocket, they will stay with you for the rest of your life.
