Don’t be alarmed! My clothes are still on; the weather is cooling down so I need to cover up, but that doesn’t mean I can’t still be sexy! I’ll be honest, the word “sexy” is not really in my personal vocabulary, but it may be in yours, so keep reading. During the summer, everyone can dress in what we typically believe to be “sexy” clothing, but what do we do during fall and winter? Should we just abandon all hopes of being cute and chic and bundle up head to toe in itchy wool until spring rolls around? NO! I wrote an article earlier about fall fashions and how one can still be fashionable and sexy without showing all the goods…because it’s honestly too cold for that. Now I’m tackling the winter months because they are fast approaching and I realize that some of us don’t think we can still be sexy while being covered. We can!
When I googled “winter sexy”, the only photos that came up were girls dressed in fur-lined bikinis and boots and while someone out there may say, “Hey that’s hot!”, it’s really not practical or realistic if you live in a town with legitimate winters. Santa Claus hats paired with a bra, panties and a scarf is not “winter sexy”, it’s hypothermia. So let’s talk about how we can stay covered and warm, but still be alluring and fashionable in our attire.
If you’re more girly, think about investing in a sweater dress or two. They can be an A-line shape or more form fitting and are super cute and also super warm. Throw some leggings and boots on and you’ve got yourself a great outfit. Leggings in general are a fashion must-have, especially if they’re fleece-lined! A long sweater with leggings is one of my favorite go-to’s. I work with kindergartners, so I need fabric that is flexible and stretchy and leggings are exactly that. Plus, they’re trendy and come in so many patterns and designs. Be not deceived though: Leggings are not pants! Let me say that a little louder for the people in the back. LEGGINGS ARE NOT PANTS.
Another winter staple that can be super sexy depending on how they’re worn are boots! Boots are a super sassy item that can be dressed up or down and can definitely bring out your inner diva. Because of my job, I don’t ever wear heels, but a pair of leather boots with a heel is very sharp and still keeps you warm. Warmth is key here, friends. It’s cold out in these streets, and no one has time to prance around in stilettos that expose your entire ankle/foot to the frigid air. Boots are the way to go this season, and if your boots are lined with any type of fur, you can probably pull off that “cute-girl-who-skis” look.
Just because it’s colder outside doesn’t mean you can’t still be cute. Less is not always more, especially when it comes to clothing, and especially when it’s chilly. Sexiness, first and foremost, comes from within, but if you’re someone who likes getting dolled up and feeling sexy on the outside too, go for it! Play around with layers. Throw on a beanie. Strut in some boots. Show off those curves in a long-sleeved dress. Do it all while still dressing practically for the weather and not like the Google-girls online who are probably freezing while half-naked in the snow! Health first, sexiness after! WORK!
