What makes women feel their sexiest?
High heels, lipstick and a brand new thong make women feel hot to trot, says study.
Feeling sexy? Women typically do thanks to certain products, says a recent study, even if it’s not directly visible to others.
Digital Hub says among the top three things that make a woman feel her hottest are smooth legs, wearing new underwear and getting complimented on her looks, according to a study conducted by Boux Avenue.
Black high heels, red lipstick and a cleavage-enhancing bra also topped the list, says the research. In fact, 80 percent of interviewees said high heels make them feel instantly sexy (and slightly slimmer, mind you, which adds to the feeling of instant sexiness).

It may seem obvious that visible items like high heels and lipstick made the list, but the study gives us another reason to stock up on thongs. “High heels and red lipstick predictable have an effect on how we look, feel and act, but people tend to underestimate the power that new underwear can have on a woman, despite the fact that few people will actually see it,” says spokesperson Lisa Bond. “It’s amazing that the most subtle changes can transform a woman into feeling sexy.”

Although the study found that one in twenty women make an effort to feel sexy every single day, there’s still a significant percentage out there that forgo the fancy heels--19 percent say they simply never bother putting in the effort to feel sexy. That sounds like a lot less work!

Beachy waves, soft strands—you can have the dream locks you've always wanted.
You already know wearing white after Labor Day is cool. But menswear is reinventing itself rapidly, leaving some long-held mandates by the wayside, not to mention a bunch of men with a lot of questions. Sure, some style laws are truly inviolable. Showing a quarter-inch of cuff will always be crucial, but with designers and dandies flaunting so many former taboos it's hard to tell what's in play these days. So we thought we'd take this opportunity to let you know which rules no longer apply.
With every changing season, our shopping lists seem to grow and grow and grow . . . and yet our bank accounts somehow stay exactly the same!
