A good tried and true rule for sexy sartorialism is to only highlight one body part: i.e. the legs with a more conservative top, or a low blouse with a slim pant. However, fashion isn’t always as cut and dry as the rules make it out to be and sometimes sex appeal can afford a little more skin. But that doesn’t mean letting it all hang out, so to speak. See the above example; the reason this works is that the dress is not remotely body conscious. It has a low neckline and is a short dress, but has tons of fabric and a long sleeve to give it some restraint. I’ve also forgone a strappy sandal in favour of a more casual and less sexy bootie.
