The Classy Girl’s Guide To Dressing Sexy

When it comes to looking sultry, all stylish girls know that less is more. While cleavage-baring necklines and body-skimming minis get noticed, we prefer to show some skin in a more demure and sophisticated way. Enter maxi and midi dresses. Don’t let the long silhouette fool you: The latest crop of these feminine frocks are designed with details like cutout backs and thigh-high slits that’ll reveal your best assets but won’t leave you feeling overexposed. Shop our top picks ahead and get ready to turn heads for all the right reasons.
