How To Give Gingham Sex Appeal

Gingham can be too sweet for some of us. If you want to vamp up this cheesecloth fabric, here’s how.

Show some leg and a little shoulder, as seen at House Of Holland. But remember, the reason this works is because there’s so much volume to the dress. If this was bodycon, it would look trashy not trendy.

At Tome, flirty ruffles brought a flamenco-style romance to this pretty summer dress.

A sporty streamlined silhouette gives this Pringle Of Scotland dress a super-sexy feel. Pair with trainers if you want to add a stronger street?vibe, although sliders will add just the right amount of urbanity without ruining the sexiness of the dress.

Blumarine injected some sheerness?to its?ultra-feminine pink midi dress. There’s nothing like a subtle hint of bare flesh to add sex appeal to an outfit. The full-length sleeves and midi length are demure enough to balance the weightlessness of the fabric.

Carolina Herrera is the queen of evening glamour. She took the material of tea towels and tablecloths and transformed it into a sensuous cocktail gown. The strapless silhouette?is beautifully sophisticated, while the knot detail at the front adds?extra sex appeal.
