Subtle-Yet-Sexy Outfits for
When You Want to Impress

Putting together a sexy look isn’t always about a skin-baring cutout or barely-there minidress. In fact, we’re fans of just a hint of skin, best issued through covered-up outfits with a tinge of sex appeal. Here, four of our favorite eye-catching, entirely wearable looks for right now. (The best part? The hero pieces below are probably already in your regular rotation.)

The Tuxedo Jacket

One of our personal favorites: Swap out a blouse for a tuxedo jacket—and nothing underneath. Combining the elegant structure of menswear with a deep-V, this power move is subtly statement-making and really sexy, in a relaxed, borrowed-from-the-boys way.

The Slit Skirt

All it takes is one cleverly placed slit for a black midi-skirt to go from modest to majorly interesting. The contrast of a hint of leg paired with a quirky colorblock Marni sweater and leather sneakers makes this look cool, but not like you’re trying too hard.

The Belted Dress

This incredibly versatile dress skims the body just so, and the cotton-blended crepe is flattering and won’t wrinkle. Add a classic trench and a red lip for a look that’s on-point.

The Button-Down

There’s something demure about a button-down buttoned all the way to the top. Here, this timeless staple feels fresh when paired with a mid-rise, leg-elongating jean and a pointy ankle boot. You really can’t go wrong.
