Sexy & Sheer: Steal RiRi’s Grammy Style (Under $40!!)


If you didn’t catch the Grammys last night, you missed a night full of stellar performances, surprise wins, and of course, jaw-dropping fashion! It’s official – skin is definitely in…I mean did you see J.Lo’s dress?!?! From midriffs to cut-out dresses and plunging necklines, the stars were definitely showing off their beach-ready bodies. But our favorite look by far was the sheer. It’s practical, sexy, and gives coverage with a little bit of tease. Just make sure you don’t go sheer from head to toe – that’s a major NO NO.


What celebs stole the show in sheer? Ashanti, Kelly Rowland, Alicia Keys and of course, Rihanna – this girl can do no wrong!
Rihanna rocked the red carpet in her long, sheer dress matched with a matte red lip. The cut and length of the dress covers all the right areas while still encompassing some playfulness and sex appeal.

Steal the look in time for Valentine’s Day! Opt for a cocktail dress with sheer details.

Our recommendation: Pins and Needles High-Neck Chiffon Dress  $109.00 $39.99 at Urban Outfitters.

 If that’s not your style…

Snag a skirtThrow on some heels and elongate those legs! Red is always sexy and this leaves room for the imagination. ($26.99)

Cutout Couture – Show Some Back, Baby!

Look sexy, not trashy. Cutouts are in and this dress via Urban Outfitters does it quite tastefully.

Tag: Pins and Needles Bow-Back Sweater Dress, $49.00 at Urban Outfitters.

What I love about this dress is that it focuses on a part of the body that doesn’t always get a ton of attention in the sex-appeal department – the back. A back can be very sexy, and it’s better to leave something to the imagination. Wear this out on the town with tights and over-the-knee boots, or to work with a blazer hiding your bare back. This would even be fab for a date – show some skin, but without letting it all hang out.

If you’re craving this, but want a dress that feels more summertime, check out this similar design pictured below. It’s a dollar cheaper and also from Urban.
