What is your definition of sexy? I’d been thinking about it for a while, and I think to some extent, my definition of it has evolved (or rather, gone in a totally different direction) over the past 2-3 years. I used to think that sexy meant lots of boobs, super short skirts, and just tight garments in general. Let’s not forget a ton of makeup, which entails dark eyeshadow and a good pouty lip.
These days, however, as you guys know, I steer clear away from makeup completely. My old booty shorts, bralettes, and too-short-dresses have all been cleared from my wardrobe. I can’t head out with skirts that are far too above my knees, and if my top is too low, I tend to start feeling a bit too uncomfortable.
I think as age gets to you, and probably out of necessity as well, you start to realize that the image you portray to the outside world is important, which was what happened to me. Work and the need to appear presentable to clients crept up on me, but at the same time, one of the core reasons I work for myself is because I need the freedom to dress the way I want. I can never be stuffed into the all-classic office wear of a pencil skirt and button down, only because that isn’t me, and even if they are classics, I need some sort of twist on them.
Classy in the new sexy. Or maybe, my definition of sexy has evolved to sensual, something that’s not too obvious, but more suggestive in a less obvious manner. It really is about having character, and instead of only paying attention to the exterior, being caring and sincere plays a huge part in being sexy. An attitude of nonchalance, freedom and effortless-ness also tops my list (continued below).
What’s on my sexy list?
Off-shoulder anything, an oversized or luxuriously soft knit, soft beautiful petals and orchids, loving something and dedicating yourself to a relationship, anything lowback (rather than in the front), Mr Charles Bass (oh be still my heart), ripped ripped denim, anything strappy and thin heeled, as well as being genuine and true to who you are.
