Every style-savvy woman will be giving it the cold-shoulder this summer. Here are ten of the best pieces for a chic and understatedly sexy look.

I really like the clean lines of this top. No frills or flounces, just a strong silhouette.

Similarly, Cos does that very clever thing of making simplicity look like perfection.

A little bit nautical, but not quite maritime. This cute top is perfect paired with denims.

Layered frills and thin spaghetti straps add extra sex appeal.
