Though there is a daring connotation with a sexy style and a conservative connation for a classic fashion, you can still draw a fine line between them. Looking sexy and classy at the same time is quite challenging but a captivating style to go for. Let’s have a style inspiration on how to balance these two opposing looks.
From Los Angeles, California, Sophie Elkuz is known for her sexy yet classy fashion style with sophisticated, classic, and feminine touches. Sophie is a firm believer in being overdressed rather than under-dressed as a put-together outfit changes her whole attitude for the day. She also loves to break some fashion rules like wearing a lot of brown and black together, mixing prints and patterns and clashing colors together. Created her blog in 2012, Angel Food Style serves as her virtual diary sharing her feminine looks, thoughts on fashion, and even her love of great foods.
When accessorizing, you may look for classic pieces to team with your sexy outfit. Sophie opted for a classic fedora hat to pair with her sexy high slit dress and a pair of gladiator sandals to pair with her sexy outfit. Think of classic accessories like pearl ornaments, gold and silver jewelry, chic sunglasses, wide brimmed hats, and even structured bags that may tone down your sexy and revealing outfit.
When looking for dresses and jumpsuit, remember that sexiness in a classic way is all about balance. Some women go overboard in their sexy style by wearing outfits that show cleavage, midriff and cuts up to their hips. There’s nothing appealing about a woman who leaves nothing to the imagination. So, give some classic touch to your sexy style by showing your features one at a time. If you take pride in your sexy waist, reveal some flesh but wear something covered for the rest of your outfit. If you wish to show off your cleavage, leave your legs and tummy covered up. You may also look for body con dresses for a sexy yet classic feel as well as halter jumpsuits, fitted jumpsuits, backless dresses, and off-shoulder ones.
When styling your looks in separates, you may be revealing and sexy on your tops and stay classic and demure on your bottoms. Like Sophie, you may wear a red crop top baring your midriff but keep your bottom classic by opting for floor length pants to cover your legs. When you want a halter top, you may balance the sexy looks with a feminine lace skirt. It’s up to you to decide how sexy and classy you want your looks to be.
The same rule applies when you really like to show off your legs with sexy bottom pieces. Leather skirts, leather trousers, and pencil skirts are figure hugging bottoms that show your curves. Add some class to your sexy style by opting for a long sleeve blouse, jackets, and even a white top.
Prints can be sexy and classic too. Look for timeless prints like stripes, florals, polka dots, and checks and wear it in a sexy way like Sophie did. Shorts, miniskirts, crop tops, and backless tops with classic prints are a great way to keep your sexy looks tamed. Or like Sophie, you may mix and match your prints as well. Just keep the different prints in the same shade or different shades in the same print to keep your looks polished.
Also, make advantage of the nude color to give some illusion of flesh when you don’t want to bare your skin at all. Nude heels are a sexy accessory that can add some height to your looks as well as a nude romper to show off your slim and sexy frame without baring your skin.
As Sophie proved us, looking classic doesn’t mean looking conservative or boring. All you need is tasteful styling to incorporate some sexy and alluring touches to your classic looks. This way, you flaunt your feminine, sexy, and classic style in a creative and fashionable looks.
