There are so many occasions in life where you want to look sexy without trying too hard. You need the outfit to be sexy enough that you do not disappear into the background but subtle enough so no one can say you are doing too much
but haters going to hate.
I am a strong believer you can never be over dressed or over educated but I know the feeling when you show up to the causal party in the cocktail dress and everyone around you is in jeans and a t-shirt. I personally feel uncomfortable when I don’t know the dress code and we don’t always have the option to do the safe text to a friend… you know the one?
Me: What are you wearing tonight?
Friend: Those really cute jeans that make my butt look big and these new shoes.
Me: Send a picture!
Sometimes it’s Russian Routlette with the outfit choice so here are 5 Tips to do Sexy Casual (correct!)
You can never go wrong in all black everything…
Monotone can be defined as:
Using a single neutral color such as black, light to medium grays, beiges, taupes, and off whites.
There are many ways to wear monotone. I like to mix fabric choices so if you wear all of one color try a leather jacket over a knit or silk top and denim pants. The mix of fabric will add dimension to the outfit.
Another favorite is monotone with an accent color! So if you are wearing all white and you have a pop of color for an accessory one favorite is topaz jewelry. Here my pop is the black and red, your eyes are drawn to the red soles.
The killer shoes, the seasons “IT’ bag, the show stopping jewelry… but only choose one. Add one piece that is hands-down gorgeous. Whether it is your new shoes or the perfect Gucci Champagne handbag- this is the ooh lala factor.
Remember this is still casual. If you are wearing a grey catsuit you may very well be overdoing it.
4. Keep the Make Up Subtle
Only one thing on your face should be dramatic. If you love heavy eyeliner- do it but then nude lip and cheeks or if you like a dramatic lipstick color then do it- but keep the eyeliner simple.
This is a command. If you have great boobs then wear a low cut top and cover up the rest of your body, if you have longs legs to envy then don’t be hesitant to still wear 4 inch heels and be the tallest in the room!
Hopefully these tips help you the next time you go out look stunning but still want to say…
