I am talking about the “S” word in fashion today.  Sexy that is!  I believe that many people out there misunderstand the word, and often associated with trashy, or x-rated.  I have to say that it’s pretty limited to have that view on sexy, and those stereotypes should literally be broken now.  Now, let me be very clear.  When I say that women should strive to be sexy every now and then, I am not talking about smutty or vulgar.  I believe that sexy is about being sensual and confident.  If you’ve ever dressed up and felt hot, oozing of sexiness – what ever “sexy” looks like for you – you also realize the boost in confidence you can get.

Some women think that to achieve a sexy look, you should be wearing something short and revealing.  However, there are a number of ways that you  can look sexy without even revealing a lot of skin.  The important thing to understand, and master when coming to achieving a sexy look, is how to manage being sexy and classy simultaneously.  There are absolutely various ways you can dress up in a sexy way and yet maintain a classy look.

As we are talking sexiness, let’s talk about wearing a little sheer.  Thankfully, since sheer is on trend right now, you can find so many various options out there.  It seems like lace, mesh and chiffon are everywhere.  The common theme in all of these fabrics, is that these fabrics are extremely feminine, sexy and quite classy.  Now when I am talking sheer, I am not asking you to go all out and wear a full sheer dress or top.  Remember, to attain that sexy and classy look, you simply need to highlight a little bit of skin.  Think “peek a boo”.  I promise you that wearing a little sheer won’t hurt.

I have styled clients looking for a few date night outfits, and I often see that they are intimidated by sheer tops, as they believe it’s too revealing.  Of course, you have to know yourself.  Know how much skin you can reveal and still feel comfortable, sexy, and confident. But if you are looking for a little number for that long-awaited date night, then try a sheer piece and be the showstopper of the evening.   Remember, there are tasteful ways to wear sheer tops, so stop looking at how other women pull it off, and jump onboard.  Your ego will thank you for it, I promise you.

I have to be honest with you.  I too get a little nervous about wearing sheers.  So, when I found this beautiful accordion INC International sheer top from Macy’s Last Act, I quickly snatched it up.  It’s the perfect amount of sheer for me.  Yet, while so simple, it looks amazingly sexy doesn’t it?  Most importantly, it is classy as well.  I paid $11 for this top, as it was in the clearance section.  If you haven’t checked out Macy’s Last Act, you are definitely missing out on some amazing savings.  I can’t tell you the last time I bought something from Macy’s at full price because I always get lucky with awesome pieces in the clearance section.

I wore this sexy sheer top out on date night with hubby.  I paired the top with these white distressed skinny jeans from H&M, which I picked up a couple of years ago for $18 on sale.  Who doesn’t love a great fitting pair of white denims.  You simply cannot go wrong with styling white skinnies.  Paired with a black sheer top, this was a beautiful black and white combo.

Adding these Nine West animal print heels provided that extra appeal to this look.  I thrifted these heels in San Diego at City Digz a couple of years ago for $14.  However, that thrift store has since closed.  Finally, I completed this look with this mix print Aldo clutch.  I found this beautiful clutch at the Aldo outlet and only paid $12, discounted from $37.  I have told you often, you can look amazing without burning through your savings.  I achieved this look for under $80 and felt beautiful, sexy and classy for a date night with hubby.
