Is it appropriate to be sexy at work? Halle Berry could be sexy wearing no makeup and a paper sack.
I think you can be sexy and classy and professional, all in one single outfit. I am wearing a white blouse with a high neckline, a pencil skirt that falls below my knee, and three inch heels. I feel confident, powerful, and sexy walking into work in that outfit and it is objectively professional.
On the other hand, I think there is a fine line you should not cross that could turn your appropriately sexy look into something NSFW. Fit is incredibly important for any work outfit. I prefer a looser fit for any professional clothing and that preference has a lot to do with the industry I worked in for years. I was a practicing attorney and the legal industry, like the financial industry, is notoriously conservative. On the other hand, if you work in tech for example—a notoriously liberal and progressive industry when it comes to wardrobe—you may find that your workplace allows for a much more casual dress code and a more form-fitting size may be acceptable.
At any rate, I generally recommend that your clothes should drape your frame, not bear-hug it. The same goes for the fit of skirts and dresses. I like wearing really long dresses and skirts. Midi length is my friend. On the other hand, I have some shorter garments, but they usually stay no more than a few inches above my knee in length.
The skirt in this article has a slit and clearly shows quite a bit of my thigh. This outfit would be completely appropriate when I walk into the office for my current employer—the Miss Universe Organization. Conversely, were I still practicing as an attorney and headed to a deposition, Dressing sexy at work hearing at the courthouse, or a meeting with a client, I would be grossly underdressed.
Know your office culture. The more casual your office is the more you can play with length. I typically stay away from cleavage in any setting, casual or business professional. It is distracting when men leave their shirts unbuttoned low enough to see chest hair and just as distracting in my opinion when women do it minus the chest hair part. My rule of thumb for heel height is if you can walk in it, go for it. I usually avoid really strappy shoes for professional settings. Also, who has time to do a good smokey eye in the morning?
I think you can play with different colors for eyeshadow and lip color, within reason. Avoid hot pink eyeshadow, but a peach color would be beautiful. I love a good red lip, but other colors like cobalt blue and bright purple should probably be saved for the weekend Dressing sexy at work after-hours events. Identify a piece that may push you over the edge and consider removing it or swapping it with something else. I will never forget the day I went in for an interview the gatekeeper and I got on fabulously and she seemed professional. It was awkward.
