OUTFIT: Black Combat Boots, Black Sheer Maxi Skirt, Lace Bralette Top (a Black Lace Bralette Halter looks great too!).
The lace bralette top is a piece of clothing that has become popular over the past couple of years and the maxi skirt has become a staple in many women’s wardrobes over the past several years. Then, of course, there are black combat boots that have floated in and out of fashion for decades. When you pair these things together in black you get a dramatic, edgy, sexy, yet still feminine look. Here is how you can achieve it.
Black Lace Bralette Top
Buy a black lace bralette. The bralette pictured is in the dramatic color, black. But the piece as a whole has a feminine quality due to the intricate lace. It is also more sexy to cover a little and have some of the upper stomach show through the lace. A black lace bralette halter would achieve a similar look if you prefer that style.
Black Sheer Maxi Skirt
You will need a black sheer maxi skirt. This black sheer maxi skirt has the flowy quality of a maxi but the color adds edginess which stands out in a crowd. The material is sheer and flowy so it’s still feminine and the mini-skirt layer underneath lets your legs show.
Black Combat Boots
These boots are a great staple shoe for a wardrobe. If you don’t have a pair then go out and buy one. It’s a great investment piece. The black combat boots have the least femininity out of the three main pieces of this outfit but sexy doesn’t have to be about femininity. Women have been wearing this style of boots to exude strength through their clothing for decades. Incorporating a utilitarian shoe is also great because the stability of the shoe makes you feel confident like you can do anything.
Hair and Make-up
We all know that hair and make-up are the final factors in perfecting a look. Yukibomb has platinum blond hair but if that’s not your hair color, don’t worry. The key to this look is that your hair needs to be sleek and glossy. If your hair isn’t naturally stick straight, use a flat iron and some hair product to make it shine. Then, put it up in a high ponytail.
The black eyeliner and mascara continues the dramatic presence of this outfit. Also, a little bit of blush or contour placed in the hallows of your cheeks will add definition. A shade that is on the darker end of what you would normally wear will complete the look best. Anything that’s too bright of a pink will ruin the effect. Finally, to make your mouth a focal point, add some red lipstick.
A black lace bralette halter or top, the maxi skirt, the pair of black boots and some hair and make-up products is all you need to pull off this look.
