My Sexy Toolbox!
Yes, Any Woman Can Get Seductive Style, Experts Say—so Long as She Has the Right Equipment
The hottest shoes out there? According to Atwood, start with a black pump in patent leather—and then go for the highest heel you can stand. (He recommends 5 inches.) "The 'sex' is in the heel; it's so sexy and flirty," he says. "And if a woman knows how to walk in heels, she will have my undivided attention. She will just stop people in their tracks!"

Sexy underwear is "an instant confidence booster," says Biszantz. And while black lingerie is "timeless," she suggests spicing things up with a surprising splash of color, like purple or red; otherwise sheer, colored stockings will "instantly elevate an everyday look."

Smoothing out your hair "makes a woman seem strong, yet polished and feminine," says Paves, who adds that the look is "super-flattering on most face shapes." The style also keeps the focus fully on your features, "which says a lot about a woman's confidence," Paves explains, making it "the ultimate in sexy!"

Host of Tim Gunn's Guide to Style
Just what is it about a woman in boyfriend jeans or a man's jacket that makes her so irresistible? "It's the ambiguity of one's sexuality and gender that provides the allure," Gunn explains. But he cautions: Pay attention to proportion (i.e., keep the cut fitted) and accessories. "Dress it up with heels" for a look that's femme fatale, not tomboy, he says.

The right fragrance acts "as an aphrodisiac," Malle says. But since people are turned on by different kinds of scents, how to know which one will work for you? Malle suggests going for a perfume that smells "like it came out of your body, that mingles with you totally." Placement is key as well; for maximum impact, "wear it on the chest and neck," Malle says, "so when you kiss someone, they can smell it!"
