SKIN CITY #TrendyThursday




The Preview Best Dressed Ball is tomorrow and the theme is Skin City, which, the way I understand it, is basically Hubadera Chic. Dressing more naked than usual is not really frowned upon on anymore, although there are still outfits that will raise eyebrows. I'm no prude, and I love me my cropped tops and short shorts, but I do have my limits when it comes to baring skin.

First of all, there is a way to make it look stylish and sexy versus slutty. My rule of thumb is really just show enough, and if you are constantly fidgeting with your top because you feel a nip slip coming every five minutes, you are TOO naked. If you feel conscious and uncomfortable, you are TOO naked. If you make other people uncomfortable, you are TOO naked. You get the picture.

I'm taking three trends that fit under the Hubadera Chic umbrella and will show you how to wear them while keeping your class, and your private parts in check.

1. SHORT SHORTS

I LOVE short shorts, but I think there's a difference between shorts and basically wearing denim underwear out. Go for the shorts if you've got great legs and want to show them off, but I don't think I need to see your actual ass hanging out, EVER. Leave something to the imagination and please, spare me from practically seeing your bunghole!

2. SIDE BOOB VS. UNDERBOOB and JUST TOO MUCH BOOB

Aaahhh, the side boob. For women like me who don't have much to offer in the boobage department, side boob tops are perfect! They show just enough to look sexy, but never enough to feel like you are going to get gawked at. Underboobs and Too much boob action, on the other hand, just looks cheap and porn-y. Steer clear. Don't be that girl.

3. CROPPED TOPS

Cropped tops are cute, and my favorite way to wear them is with a high waist skirt or shorts, when only a sliver of skin shows. It's fun, flirty and sexy and you can get away with wearing it to lunch as much as to after dinner cocktails. On the other hand, if you are in low rise jeans and a crop top that practically ends under your boobs, it seems to send a different signal, don't you think? Save those extreme cropped tops for the beach or a pool party and stick with the high waist-cropped top formula.

That said, I don't know if I'm going to be breaking any of my own rules at the party tomorrow. Ha! See you at SKIN CITY!
