We want you to know this because we’re about to offer five tips for dressing sexy. And if you want to look the part, you’ve got to feel the part first. So absorb this simple truth. Let it really sink in: You’re gorgeous. You’re sexy. You look fabulous in an LBD and stilettos.

Got it? Good. Now that you feel fabulous, it’s time to show it to the world. Here are five easy ways to dress like your sexiest self ever.

How to Dress Sexy

Play up your best body parts.

Some girls look at a full derriere as a curse, but a big bust or booty is beautiful. So emphasize these curves with tight dresses, high-waisted jeans, and embellished frocks that draw all eyes toward what you want people to see.

If you’ve got killer legs, show ’em off in a miniskirt! Love your cleavage? Wear a low-cut V-neck top! Keep things classy by flaunting only one of your assets at a time. That means don’t pair a mini with a deep-V top.

Make BFFs with your belt.

Some girls are blessed with more curves than Lombard Street in San Francisco. But if you’re not one of them (and even if you are), you can fake it or emphasize your waste with this style secret — a belt!

Defining your waist gives you an instant dose of femininity (hello, hourglass figure) and helps keep you looking svelte all over.

Put those heels to work.

A fabulous fashionista knows how to walk in heels, and she wears them all the time. She even wears ’em poolside and to baseball games, because, why not? We’re not saying you have to, but mastering the art of the stiletto will make you feel instantly sexier, guaranteed.

If heels hurt your feet, try wedges. This style elongates your legs with less stain on your feet. Or, try kitten for the sexy look of stilettos minus the feeling of teetering around on stilts.

Don’t underestimate the basics.

Jeans and a white tee. His shirt. Sweatpants that make your butt look awesome. When it comes down to it, it’s often not the bandage dress or thigh-high slit that makes an impression.

It’s you looking amazing in the simplest clothes you own. Don’t feel like you have to hit the mall and revamp your wardrobe to get attention. That tank top you’ve had for years will do just fine.

Fake it ’til you make it.

Every sexily dressed woman knows that looking sexy is about 20 percent what you have and about 80 percent what every one thinks you have. You may not feel like a celebrity sex symbol in some Spanx or a miracle bra — but you should, because the celeb you idolize is probably wearing them too.

What matters is how great you look in your dress, not what you’re wearing under it. So do what you can to look your best. From there, it’s all up to attitude: whatever you’re wearing, work it and you’ll have sexy down to a science.
