There’s no denying that sex sells. Always has, always will. And fashion has been taking careful note of that in preparation for summer. Hems are getting shorter, slits are getting higher… Which can only mean designers have been inspired by the lusty air.
Simply take a look at Jacquemus’ recent campaign “Amour” shot by Tom Kneller, where couples just cannot take their hands (or tongues) off each other. Think of that SuitSupply advertisement but make it fashion. The sexy and intimate shots highlighted something which had become forbidden to us over the past year: touch.
Summer has always brought to us lighter clothes (logically), but this summer is bound to be extra sexy. After being cooped up in our homes for the past year, wearing the same combo of oversized sweatpants and hoodies, it comes as no surprise that we need to shed a couple layers of clothing. Out with the baggy and in with the tight, short and see through. Because what’s a summer of love without showing a little skin?
For those willing to ditch the lockdown-appropriate comfort-wear, which frankly has been dragged out, for skimpy and risqué pieces, we’ve got you covered. Or rather uncovered. Check out our list of 10 items we’ve picked out for your wardrobe-180.
