With the holiday season comes colder weather and more layers and you may find yourself having to throw on bulky, unflattering clothes just to stay warm.
But for those that want to look sexier during winter, the best advice to follow is the ‘less is more’ ethos. Unlike bikini-clad summers, it’s not about showing everything but instead about being selective in what you reveal.
It’s also the perfect time to use layers to your advantage to draw the eye and highlight your best features. A slight showing of skin, eyes canvassed beautifully between a scarf and hat, there are many options we cover below.
1. Colors can Be Chic and Sexy
As soon as it hits winter it seems as if the world becomes a sea of black winter coats, light greys, and white. This creates a perfect opportunity to stand out using colors that compliment your look.
Don’t be afraid of buying winter coats in bold colors. As long as the fit is right, it will draw people’s attention for all the right reasons.
You can also use color to compliment your skin tone. Go to a store and try a mix of blues and purples, greens and yellows, oranges and reds. You’ll likely find that certain shades just look better on you.
2. Experiment with See-Through Dresses
We absolutely do not mean the fully revealing dresses worn by some outrageous celebrities. Instead, this is an opportunity to cover your body and protect it from the cold but still show a little bit of skin.
A small glimpse of your legs or arms will be an enticing feature compared to others who are fully covered up.
3. Establish Balance With Your Body
Before heading out, imagine your body as a silhouette and find areas to love and highlight.
For example, if you’re skinny and lack curves, you want to avoid clothes appearing to just hanging off you. Use a winter coat with a belt to hug at your waist and accentuate your shoulders. You can also use long scarves to help elongate your body to elevate its slender elegance.
In contrast, if you’re more curvaceous, you don’t want to add layers in the wrong places making you look bulky. Instead, focus on thinner warm materials that follow the natural curve of your body. This is also an ideal time to use patterns and colors to draw the eye to your sexiest features.
Of course, there are also other options that are less natural. Doctors like Marc Mani are known for helping people make small adjustments that give them greater confidence for the rest of their life.
4. Look Sexier by Focusing on Your Face
Of course, sometimes it’s so cold that bulky layers are essential to keeping warm or maybe you don’t feel confident enough to accentuate your figure.
In these cases, you can take advantage of layers and makeup to show off your gorgeous facial features.
For example, a woman with red hair may wear a maroon winter hat, a red scarf, and a black winter coat. This use of bright color will make anyone look at her face and also help accentuate her eyes.
You can also pull your hair up and use a warm headband to keep your ears warm. This helps your face appear more slender while also drawing the eye up instead of down.
Be sure to coordinate your make up to work with your outfit while also accentuating your favorite features of your face.
5. Choose the Right Clothes
While shorts and a cute top are usually all you need for summer, the winter months require a bit more thinking.
As you add layers, pay attention to the colors and patterns of each item you put on. The risk is the wrong combination can really clash.
It’s All About Confidence
Ultimately, the sexiest quality anyone can have is confidence in themselves. Before you write this off as a boring cliche, really think about it.
Imagine two people. One person you think is attractive who constantly complains about how they look and covers themselves up completely. And another who you think is less attractive but loves their body and dresses well.
Hands down the second person will appear sexier and more appealing to everyone they meet because they own who they are and flaunt it.
To really look sexier this winter, just do you.
