How to Dress Sexy But Classy (7 Tips)

how to dress sexy but classy

What would Carrie Bradshaw do is my credo while attempting to be sexy but classy.

I’m talking about how to style sexy outfits while still remaining classy.

It’s always best to keep it classy, but I believe you can still be sexy. We owe it to ourselves to be sexy, in my opinion.

When I say sexy, I’m not necessarily referring to obnoxious, in-your-face sexy.

I’m talking about showing what you’ve got, your best features, and exuding confidence as a result. And all while exuding sexiness and confidence.

Any expert would probably tell that sexy is confidence.

These tips are appropriate for people of all ages and body types. The problematic thing about sexy is that it can go from classy to trashy in an instant.

Let’s get started with the suggestions.

Half Tight, Half Loose

This is a reference to a certain outfit.

I adore it when you combine tight and loose elements in a style. This is one of the sexiest ways to style an outfit, in my opinion.

You’re not going overboard with either side because you have that balance.

There’s a time and place for going tight and a time and place for going loose or oversized on oversized.

An example would be wearing an oversized button-up shirt and tucking it into a pair of extremely great tight pants.

You probably don’t even notice it’s a hot appearance because it’s so simple. However, it is really successful as a sexy look.

Why do I believe this is both sexy and classy?

Because when you combine the tight and the loose, you’re essentially emphasizing. It also lengthens and flatters the figure.

The main point of wearing tight bottoms and loose tops is to give the impression that the bottom half is smaller than it actually is.

Full Tight With Over Layer

The second tip is to use an overlayer that is fully tight.

What I like about this is that you’re achieving some form of balance, but in a unique way.

When you have a full-on tight look (maybe a pair of bike shorts with a really tight tank top, maybe a tight pair of pants with a tight top, whatever the tightness is), you can add an overlayer, which is usually something a little bit more oversized or a little bit more dramatic in length, to add a little bit more contrast to the look.

Ultimately, it will frame that outfit, balancing out the tightness, but in a different way, by framing rather than enhancing the look.

One Reveal

Only one reveal is the third tip.

I believe a sensitive way to say it is that the stereotypical meaning of sexy is being a little bit more revealing, being a little bit more revealing of our feminine features.

This, again, boils down to the simple approach that I frequently discuss. There isn’t really someplace for your eye to settle when you’re doing too many things at once, if you’re disclosing too much at once; you don’t really know where you should be looking.

However, if you choose one feature to reveal, that feature becomes the focal point, making it even more attractive and sexy.

In this case, less is definitely more.

If you’re someone who is very proud of their cleavage, an excellent example would be deciding to expose it.

That’s when we get the balance we’re aiming for. For me, it’s always about finding the right balance.

Maybe you’re extremely proud of your booty, and you’re doing those squats and lunges, and your booty is looking great.

Maybe you’re wearing a pair of skinny pants. Maybe you’re particularly proud of your legs, or you have some great legs that you want to flaunt to the world.

I completely understand.

You may wear a short skirt, a short dress, or a pair of short shorts.

But, in the end, maybe wearing a really long duster cardigan to balance it out. Wearing a long duster cardigan with shorts is a great contrast.

Maybe you cover the upper half of your body, maybe you’re wearing a long sleeve turtleneck dress, but really short, just revealing the legs.

Ultimately, it comes down to picking one thing to unveil and letting that be the showstopper.

Sneaky Reveal

The fourth tip is the stealthy reveal.

Someone with gorgeous cleavage who likes to flaunt it is one of my favorite instances of this. Perhaps it’s a classic v-neck t-shirt coupled with a jacket or cardigan.

It’s that small sneaky reveal that isn’t immediately obvious.

The walk away shirt is another one of my all-time faves that I used to wear all the time.

This is when you wear a shirt that appears regular on the front but reveals your stunning back on the back.

It just emanates confidence when you see individuals wearing them.

One of the most underappreciated gorgeous body areas is the back.

Sexy And Sophisticated

Tip number five is, of course, a delicate blend of sophistication and sexiness.

One of the most sexy styles, in my opinion, is the sophisticated style.

You must be self-assured to pull off a sophisticated style.

Consider a man dressed in a three-piece tailored fitting suit. This is one of the most sexiest looks in my opinion since the man wearing the tailored fitted three-piece suit exudes confidence.

He’s not revealing too much about his physique, but it’s clearly flattering in the sense that it’s fitting and shows his figure’s form. But, in the end, it all comes down to having the courage to pull off that look.

You might also go for a classy appearance with a little sexy detail.

It might be a blazer paired with a cleavage-baring top. Another example is a stylish tailored fitted sheath dress that is form-fitting and accentuates the figure. But then you have to match it with a pair of fierce stiletto pumps.

The confidence in wearing the stiletto pumps adds to the sexiness. It’s just a matter of bringing in that contrast and, in the end, projecting confidence.

Heels

Heels are tip number six.

Heels, in my opinion, are the shoes of the sexy mood. With a pair of heels, you have a sexy look.

A pair of boyfriend jeans paired with a pair of stiletto heels is one of the most popular styles. To me, it’s still a sexy classic.

It finally oozes sexiness and confidence because it exudes such femininity.

Fully Tight, Reveal Nothing

Tip number seven is to make everything as tight as possible without revealing anything.

This is certainly one of my favorite sexy yet classy outfits.

This isn’t something I’d use on a regular basis. This is more of an event look, in my opinion.

Wearing a turtleneck dress or a high neck dress that is long sleeved and skin tight all the way past the knees is one of my favorite sexy outfits.

This is, in my opinion, one of the most sexy yet classy outfits you can wear. It’s about confidence; you’re confident in showing off all those delicious curves, but you’re not disclosing anything else.

It is a source of balance and contrast in and of itself. This is fantastic, and it keeps it very classy in my opinion. If you’re too open with your revealing, you’ll quickly reach the trashy end of the spectrum.

This is how you balance out a completely tight-fitting style that accentuates all of your curves without revealing nothing.

A particularly tight fitting jumpsuit with a higher neck, such as a crew neck or a turtleneck, and long sleeves is another example of this.

In the end, I believe that keeping the balance is what all of these tips for having that sexy outfit while still remaining classy are aiming for.

Maintaining the balance of the scale and not pushing it too far to the sexy side is essential.

There’s a time and a place for putting a little more weight on that sexy side of your body. We’ve all been in that situation. There are times when it is appropriate to do so.

It’s always more classy when there’s a little bit of mystery involved.

Mysteriousness is unquestionably one of the most attractive qualities in a person.

That concludes my seven tips for putting together sexy yet classy ensembles.
