The easiest way to amp up the sex appeal without showing too much skin is all in the strategic slice. Constance Zimmer’s high-neck gown and Nicole Kidman’s classic black dress at the Critics’ Choice Awards prove that the look is a true red-carpet mainstay. Rock it for the weekend with this floral number and a pair of edgy sandals.
Lovely in Lace
Lingerie-inspired looks are always popular on the red carpet, and this year is no exception. From Kristin Wiig’s romantic white dress to Drew Barrymore’s ethereal gown, lace was out in full force at the Golden Globes. We love this lacy top to dress up jeans or tucked into a pair of high-waisted pants.
Slits Are It
Slits allow you to show a flash of leg in the most glamorous way. See: Emily Ratajkowski’s stunning Golden Globes look that is both sexy and seductive. This maxi is destined to become your most popular piece come spring. Pair it with a tiny tank for day or try it with a cropped long-sleeve top for a smart dinner look.
From mega-watt jewels to shimmering stilettos, a little bit of sparkle and sheen goes a long way. Although you may not have an excuse to pile on the bling, we can think of a million reasons you’ll love these two-strap sandals. Use them to update a beach look or take a basic LBD to the next level.
