Seductive clothing has many faces and different manifestations. Some are too basic and often border on vulgarity. Others, however, elevate the garment to the level of a discreet but decidedly alluring and compelling message. A message that inspires and ignites dreams, desire and especially passion.
The seduction or aesthetic temptation in women's clothing is such a cultural, emotional and visual ultimatum that it has silenced the gods. Only one did not hold back and loudly said why women's fashion should radiate seduction, and that was the gentle prince of French fashion, Yves Saint Laurent. He declares himself against easy and accessible women through the signs of clothing. The most important thing, according to him, is that a woman does not lose her mystery, her mysteriousness. That is why she must radiate a discreet and delicate seduction, but also control this seductiveness of her appearance. Clothes help a woman to discover herself, to unravel her own personality, said Saint Laurent, and he easily imposed dresses with deep slits. He went even further, becoming the first designer to dress a woman in a tuxedo and as early as 1967 he created a women's collection entirely with men's suits. Bianca Jagger caused a real sensation in bridal fashion in 1971 during her wedding to Mick Jagger. For this particularly solemn moment, she was wearing a white Yves Saint Laurent tuxedo jacket paired with a skirt. We will also clarify that she had not put anything under the jacket. Even then, the designer pointed out that a woman dressed in a man's suit defines her seduction and femininity even more clearly, destroying the image of outdated and defashionable femininity. Blazers and trousers further enhance the mysterious and seductive image of the modern woman, according to his philosophy and aesthetic.
Nowadays, there are countless guides, how-tos, and pointers on how a woman can look seductive through her clothes. We will take a closer look at some of these rules that undoubtedly cause conflicting feelings in us:
Step 1. Tempt with a strapless neckline
Step 2. Let your cleavage dominate
Step 3. Show off your legs
Step 4. Choose the illusion of being naked
Step 5. Shine bright like a diamond
Step 6. Seduce unexpectedly with overalls
Step 7. Take primary animal prints
Step 8. Showing bare skin always works
Step 9. Allure in feminine lace
Step 10. Put on a dress with a zipper in the front
Step 11. Select Red
Step 12. Put on high heels…
The list of steps goes on, but it is good to stop and say with a smile that if all these rules are absolute and applied mechanically, they can turn any woman into a caricature.
Seduction in women's fashion is an exclusive mix of feminine intuition and ultimate design, enigmatic and discreet sexiness, delicate flirtation and unencumbered fantasy. It corresponds to the advantages of a beautiful body, but mostly it is a state of mind and emotional intelligence.
