Trend to Try: Peek-A-Boo Flesh

Everyones favorite childhood game has grown up and been reinterpreted into one majorly sexy fashion trend: Peek-a-boo flesh. Flashes of skin was a recurring theme on the Spring 2010 runways- cut-outs, lace and mesh insets, slits, shredding, holes- designers pulled out all the stops this season to give a little peak at what’s underneath. This style can be a little intimidating, so only expose as much as you’re comfortable with. My rule of thumb: enough to entice, not enough to appall.

A bit of peek-a-boo can update anything from a basic LBD to a simple tank and infuses a fun, unexpected, fashion-forward edge. Of course, make sure to offset the sexiness of extra exposure by lowering the volume on the rest of your ensemble. Think simple shoes, less flashy accessories, minimal makeup. Removing the excess glitz will keep your look classy, but still sexy, a winning combo if there ever was one!

Read on for my top peek-a-boo picks!

Sena Cut Out Dress, $385.  Elegant and feminine with a whopping dose of seductive sex appeal, this one is a wow-inducer to say the least.

Urban Renewal Linen Cutout Bandeau Dress, $58. The perfect summer dress. If you’re a little insecure about the tummy exposure, wear a lace tank underneath for a funky and fresh style.

TopShop Lace Insert Fiona Dress, $70 (also available in black). An understated but undeniably sexy style can can be worn as a dress or tunic and go from day-t0-night.

Smitten Granite Jersey Cut-Out Detail Dolman T-Shirt, $48. Be bold and wear this over nothing but a bra, or layer it over a neon tank.

Sheri Bodell Chaos Mini Dress, $260. So sweet and subdued with just a tiny touch of rebellion.

Kain Label Modal Silk Triple Strap Tank
, $59.50. One of those incredible, one-off items that gets everyone’s attention.

Free People Scandalous Lace Top, $48. There is something so refined yet rebellious about a sheer lace top. I say rock it with nothing but a bra, but a simple cami works too!

Donna Mizani One Shoulder Cut Out Dress, $193. The kind of dress that makes it impossible to feel anything less than smoking hot.
