Occasionally, you feel that magical pull towards your wardrobe, whispering that it’s time to slink into something sultry. Maybe you’re counting down the days until your bestie says “I do” so you can finally slip into that new little number you’ve been jonesing to wear. Or perhaps you randomly find yourself with the sudden itch to doll up and head out for a night on the town.
So you listen to the mystical voice, but after thumbing through your entire closet, you come up frustratingly empty-handed.
You know what you need? A sexy dress.
Whether that's a mini cocktail dress or a casual bodycon dress, there's always room for a sexy dress. Prepare yourself for a spicy dress upgrade, because we’ve assembled a list of six sexy dresses that’ll look fabulous in your closet—and even more sizzling on you.
#1 Aida Midi Dress
There’s an unwritten (but understood) rule in the women’s fashion handbook—every woman would benefit from owning an LBD (little black dress). They’re the ultimate go-to, whether you’re sipping on cocktails with friends, swaying to the music at a Harry Styles concert, or playing a rousing game of darts at your local watering hole.
Luckily, the Aida Midi Dress is the ultimate sexy LBD that’s versatile enough for all three occasions—and countless others.
In addition to giving you a major confidence boost as you saunter into any room, some of Aida’s features include:
- Thin shoulder straps with a heart-shaped neckline (all the better to pair with an eye-catching necklace)
- A fitted waist to show off your curves
- A sultry center slit in the back
You can dress up this bold midi dress with a pair of open-toed stilettos and a black and silver-beaded clutch as a sexy party dress. Or, keep it simple and elegant with a pair of platform slides and a colorful cross-body bag to add a pop of color.
#2 Gisa Short Dress
Looking for a sexy mini dress? Discover the simplicity and adaptability of the Gisa Short Dress. Its V-neckline and wrap-style tie make it stylish and Boho rolled into one seductive package ready to ravage any occasion.
Sneaking out for a quick beach getaway? With the Gisa at the top of your packing list, you’ll seamlessly breeze through the day feeling (and looking) like the goddess you are.
Start with a walk through the beach-side farmer’s market, completing your stylish getup with a wide-brimmed fedora and strappy black sandals. As you ramp up for a lively night at some local beach bars, you can throw on a black blazer and dazzle everyone as you show off just the right amount of skin.
Did we mention it comes in a variety of colors and patterns? With so many options to choose from, you might want to pack more than one in your suitcase.
#3 Iris Long Dress
Whether you’re meeting friends for brunch in Greenwich Village or sipping on an oat milk latte at your beachside Airbnb, the Iris Long Dress is the Bohemian gown you never knew you needed. (Trust us—you do).
Subtle meets glam in this timeless maxi dress, which boasts alluring features like:
- A sweetheart neckline
- Descending button detailing on the sides of the dress
- A slit on the hem (flirty and comfortable? Yes, please!)
- Barely-there adjustable shoulder straps
- A form-fitting smocked back
- Three tantalizing colors to choose from, including black, off-white, and ginger
This multifaceted maxi dress is perfect for all-day wear. By day, complement it with a pair of strappy platform sandals and oversized sunglasses. By night, spice it up with a pair of wedges and a matching clutch.
#4 Gil Mini Dress
In the Gil Mini Dress, and you’ll feel like a whole new woman—empowered, sexy, and motivated to conquer whatever the day throws your way.
This vibrantly-colored mini dress comes in two showstopping colors and makes a statement wherever you go:
- Agatha – A bright and cheery pink that will instantly light up any room
- Basil – As delectable as the herb, but in a softer pastel green
If you’re leaning toward a sexy-meets-trendy-meets-understated vibe, you can keep it casual in the Gil Mini, a stylish pair of sneakers, and a light cardigan.
On the other hand, if you feel like donning it for your next big date night, try dressing it up with a pair of lace-up sandals or chunky platforms and an oversized blazer.
#5 July Detail Long Dress
Planning to enjoy a romantic beachside dinner with your boo, or preparing an unforgettable bachelorette party in the big city for one of your favorite ladies? Either way, we’ve got just the thing—the July Detail Long Dress.
This Boho beauty silhouette is light and flowy, bringing a breath of luxury and sophistication into your entire ensemble. With its attached wrap, you can tie it in the front or the back for two different styles that look equally alluring.
Other unforgettable details include:
- Handcrafted rope halter ties
- A tulip-style hem
- A low back
- An easy pull-on style, so you can slip it on and be ready to go at only a moment’s notice
For a laid-back vibe, pair it with a gold pendant choker and a pair of woven mules. If you’re revving up to take the night by storm, try a pair of heels complemented with a smoky eye and bold matte lip.
#6 Luana Detail Long Dress
Last on the list (but never last in our hearts) is the Luana Detail Long Dress. You’ll be the focal point of the party (or wedding, or any event) in this stunning and seductive midnight black midi dress.
With features like a plunging neckline and multiple side cutouts and slits, you’ll look like a goddess among humans as you strut boldly down the street. Other showstopping details include:
- A handcrafted elastic rope plated with 24-karat gold charms
- A smocked back to fit and flatter any frame
- An asymmetric hem with a side slit for the ultimate sultry (yet comfortable) look
As a self-made fashionista, you have the power to make the Luana as tantalizing or casual as you want. You can downplay its sensuality with a pair of sneakers and a few chunky pieces of jewelry.
For a more formal look, you can glam yourself up with a pair of strappy heels and a black and gold-sequin clutch. Voilà—from day to night with a snap of your fingers (and a quick accessory change).
