Posted on November 29 2016
Looking sexy is not just about throwing on an amazing bandage dress that everyone seems to be wearing to recent parties. It is much more than just following trends. It is about style, confidence, and loving how you feel and who you are every single day. The first step to being sexy is feeling it from within, and there are a number of ways to get you there.
We all want to be sexy, yet not all of us feel attractive at all times. Some days you just don't feel like putting on makeup for your date with your lover or wearing heels to the office. Some days you just want to be comfortable and easy in your own skin.
The secret to looking sexy all the time lies in the details. It is not hard to pull off a sexy look anywhere all the time if you remember few key tricks. These sexy tricks completely transform your look and make you the cynosure of all eyes.
Go for red
Ever wondered why red is used as the color for paint signs and anything that needs to grab someone’s attention? It is because the color red stands out and demands attention. Don’t believe us? Put red to the test. Just try wearing a red bandage dress (or a red cut out dress) or even just red heels with a dress of another color, and notice the difference. You will not only make heads turn, but be feel confident and sexy just by adding a dash of this color in your look. Even red nails do the trick!
In fact, a University of Rochester study found that men viewed women wearing red as sexier and more attractive than when they wore any other color. Now you even have proven research. So go ahead and splurge on that arresting red number and take your sex appeal higher by quite a few notches.
Lacey clothing has long been associated with looking sexy, and for good reason. Lace lingerie aside, wearing lace on your dress immediately grows your oomph factor. Lace turns you into that sultry siren that you always wanted to be. Wearing lace has an effect on your mind too, as it has the power to instantly make you feel more feminine and sexual. Therefore, lace is perfect for a romantic date or a passionate evening with the special lover in your life.
The advantage of lace is that you can style your outfit to be as revealing or as modest as you want. Depending on the occasion, go for an all-lace dress or just a top paired with a pencil skirt that shows off your curves. This looks is equal parts demure and magical.
Grab seductive lingerie
You do not buy lingerie only to please your lover; wearing sexy underwear can boost your mood and make you feel sexy like never before. Lingerie has this effect even if you do not intend to reveal it to anyone. So give a makeover to your lingerie drawer, and try those silky, lacey thongs and bras that you always looked at but never bought.
Just knowing that you have something slinky and sensuous under your usual clothes has a crazy ability to give you confidence and poise. It is also likely to make you feel beautiful and sexy, and this works as a big confidence booster.
To feel good and beautiful all over, pamper yourself unapologetically. Pampering yourself can be achieved in a variety of ways. Go for a mani-pedi every now and then, color or add highlights to your hair, or get a new hairstyle. Wear a sexy fragrance, paint your toes, or try a new lipstick. All of these things make you feel sexy from within, which works wonders for your mood and shows in your confidence.
Embrace sensual hairstyles
If you have beautiful, long tresses that always earn compliments, the simple styling of sweeping it to one side instantly transforms your look. If you have shorter hair go for a “I woke up like this” messy hairstyle for the same effect. Use your hair to achieve sexy looks that are versatile, flattering, and easy to pull off.
Kate Bosworth, gives great insight into just how much your hairstyle affects your sexy. She shares, "it's so different when you change your hair color, you're treated so differently. It's a very funny experience. It's fun - I love changing up my hair."
Put on high heels
You probably already knew it – wearing a pair of killer heels is a sure-shot way to improve the appearance of your body. There is science behind it as well. Wearing heels make your breasts and hips thrust forward in an appealing way, thus making you look more seductive and attractive.
Heels also give you height which gives you confidence and a sexy feminine walk. If you want a leg-lengthening effect, go for nude pumps closest to the color of your skin.
Hit the gym
You may be wearing your most sensuous dress, but your sex appeal will take a major hit if you do not feel good about your body or comfortable in your own skin. The way to fulfilling these needs takes just a bit of hard work and a lot of resisting temptations. Spending time at the gym and eating the right foods is what it takes.
A toned physique is what we all want, and if you want to look sexy and feel confident every time you step out start a new exercise regime. Exercising is not simply about helping you lose weight. Exercise helps you sweat which gives you clear skin and also boosts your energy, and promotes improved mental clarity.
Remember to consult a professional trainer to work out an exercise routine specific to your body, so that you can derive maximum benefits from it.
Since what you eat goes hand-in-hand with your workout regimes, a healthy diet is equally important. Here are some tips on adopting a healthier lifestyle and diet plan:
- Go for a meal plan in which you eat unprocessed organic foods at least 75 percent of the time. These include lean meats and lots of organic fruits and vegetables.
- Increase your daily intake of colorful vegetables and fruits to at least two servings for each meal. For snacks, keep nuts and chopped vegetables ready and have them with a delicious dip instead of going for unhealthy options.
- Overhaul your kitchen and throw away all the junk food and then stop buying such items altogether. Steer clear of caffeinated drinks, deep fried snacks, and sugary treats and you will be able to see and feel the difference in your body in a short time.
- When you are outside for work or travel, plan ahead and carry healthy snacks with you so that you do not have to resort to unhealthy foods.
- Keep yourself hydrated with ample quantities of water throughout the day.
- Consult a nutritionist or a doctor and start taking the supplements that you need. There are several options for vegetarians too.
- Quit smoking and limit your alcohol intake to the minimum (social gatherings and events where you simply cannot refuse a drink perhaps).
A healthy lifestyle is not difficult to achieve; all it takes is a bit of determination. Once you see the results you can achieve for your body, skin, and mind, you are sure to stick to it. So pay attention to your meals and fitness routine, and feel sexy like never before.
General Tips for Being Sexy
Irrespective of what you wear and the shape of your body, there are some almost-cardinal rules that you need to remember when it comes to being sexy and finding your sensual self.
Showing skin does not always mean sexy.
A barely-there piece of clothing is not the go-to rule of being sexy. In fact, if you are not comfortable, it will only translate to awkwardness and portray you as someone who is uncomfortable. Instead of showing to much skin, stick to what suits you the most and use your personality more than your clothes to ooze sex appeal.
Confidence is the key.
Being confident is one of the sexiest attributes a woman can have. You may not be looking your best or have the right kind of makeup on, but the right blend of humor, confidence, and charm more than makes up for everything else.
Use your mind.
Women who are intelligent and are up for challenging conversations are among the sexiest, irrespective of looks and makeup. A sharp, well-informed mind beats a skimpy outfit any day when it comes to being sexy. So do not shy away from speaking your mind and holding your ground, even when you are flirting and hoping to impress at the bar.
There is no single formula for ‘how to be sexy.’ But these tips are sure to help you feel and look sexy not just for a date or an event, but at all times. Make sure you add your own twist to your look, and get ready to make hearts skip a beat when you walk by.
