Sophia Loren. Marilyn Monroe. Elizabeth Taylor. Eva Mendes. Kim Kardashian. Beyonce. They all have one thing in common: they are all bombshells. Beautiful women are a dime a dozen, but not every woman has the sexy allure of a bombshell. Though her ensemble may be a wee bit tighter or low cut, she’s always classy not trashy. Bombshells accentuate their form with an unabashed confidence. It’s not about being objectified; it’s about celebrating her womanhood. She is not afraid to show up in a fiery red dress when everyone else is going for basic black. For the Bombshell, every day is a fashion show. Keep clicking to see what you need to channel your inner bombshell.
How to Channel Your Inner Bombsell
Keep clicking to see what you need to channel your inner bombshell.
No Bombshell wardrobe would be complete without a saucy pencil skirt. Form-fitting yet totally covered up, every one of your curves will be highlighted without actually showing any skin. Take a cue from Eva Mendes in a hot red take on the traditional pencil skirt. She looks casual yet sexy in this sailor style skirt at the Spike Awards.
Try this one from Jane Norman. £25 at House of Fraser.
Wearing animal print can be tricky, but not for a Bombshell. This classic staple is a must-have but you have to know how to rock it so you look classy not trashy. Joy Bryant wears it well at the Hit and Run premiere.
For a less vampy version, try this long-sleeve number from Tinley Road. $79 at Piperlime.
Fitted Shirt or Sweater
No one did it better than Marilyn Monroe when it came to tight fitting sweaters. Paired with a skirt, shorts, or jeans, a sultry sweater elevates an everyday look from boring to Bombshell.
Fitted Shirt or Sweater
Sport this fitted sweater from Enza over a pair of light gray jeans and pumps for a lazy Sunday. $154 at Revolve Clothing.
Everyone’s favorite love-to-hate bombshell Kim Kardashian always knows how to work what she’s got. She does it perfectly in this ensemble by adding a belt to make her waist appear smaller.
B-Low The Belt offers a range of cute belts including this one named Laine. Wear it with a fitted dress to create the illusion of an hourglass figure. $110 at Shopbop.
Body hugging dress
Finally, the last thing a bombshell needs is a body conscious dress. Not to be confused with the body con styles of late, this style is not as revealing. Think Joan from Mad Men. In real life, Beyonce channels this look in this stunning white number.
You can take a cue from Beyonce by sporting this Narciso Rodriguez red cap sleeve frock. $1315 at Lyst.
