How much, is too much?
Maybe you can show off cleavage in a classy way, a lil’ bit of leg without starting a controversy. You can do all of this in an elegant, confident manner that exudes style! Leaving a little bit to the imagination is of course acceptable but leaving nothing to the imagination is another story.
A little cleavage goes a long way. The key word: little. You don't want to turn heads for the wrong reasons. Showing some cleavage can look sensual and feminine; too much looks improper. To show off your cleavage in a tasteful manner, try:
A slip dress that just grazes the bust or falls into a low "V". The dress should ideally be long - think knee-length or longer. The combination of elegant material and flattering cut put the focus on your overall look.
Sheer Tops and Dresses
The key to wearing any type of sheer garment is to layer it with a non-sheer item. Here are a few ways to rock the sheer materials:
A diaphanous slip dress looks adorable over a pair of leggings and a sleek top.
A sheer top is great for a night out clubbing, but wear it over a lightweight camisole to keep things proper.
Love lacey tops? Layer on a camisole in a contrasting color for fun!
Some clothes are revealing without leaving as much skin on display as you might think. Bandage dresses, for example, show every curve by hugging exceptionally close to the body. There's no reason you shouldn't show your gorgeous shape, but keep a few things in mind if you wear something super-tight:
- If you are wearing two pieces (as opposed to a dress), try to make sure one is loose and flowy for balance.
- Keep your accessories simple. A statement bracelet could be fine (depending on your style).
- Try your dress on with any undergarments you plan to wear and then check it in different types of light to make sure you're not showing more than you intend to (lines where the undergarments end, more skin than you planned to show, or your belly button through the fabric, for example).
- Make sure the skirt hits at least mid-thigh. If you have to spend your night out tugging on the ends of your dress and worried about showing off what's underneath any time, you won't look confident (which is the key to pulling off revealing clothing) and you definitely won't be comfortable.
