Here’s How You Pull Off Peekaboo-Skin Pieces For That Sultry Edgy Look

From lace to mesh and slits to cut-outs, nail the sexy-cool vibe with trendy pieces that let you show peekaboo skin without forgetting to give a twist to your sensual appeal, plus a dose of don’t-mess ‘tude. By Joan Kong

To tone down the disco vibe of your sequinned cowl-neck top, layer it over a sheer top; the floral-prints serve as an added interest! Keep things polished by finishing the look with a pair of plain flared trousers.

An off-shoulder top and wrapped skirt combo lets you flaunt your shoulder and pins, but instead of completing the feminine look with a pair of predictable pumps, opt for chunky, buckled heels for that rugged flair.

Who says pantsuits can only be worn to work? Give your boardroom essentials a racy update with a studded body chain and mesh details for a party; you’ll stand out in a sea of LBDs for sure!

Play with textures by incorporating knitted details, metallic and vinyl in one look. We love how the shine adds that bit of futuristic vibe to the outcome.

Shine further (literally) in a slip dress with glitter, but tone down the glamour with a mesh choker – a dainty one hits the right note! Tote a marble-print clutch and you’re good to go!

One of the (many) reasons we love mesh dresses? The possibilities are endless! Go down the feminine-edgy route by layering a leather skirt over the dress, and let the floral embroidery take centre stage.

When you’re in the mood to go bold, a sheer maxi dress (with glitter, no less) does the trick. Layer a bodysuit or swimsuit underneath if you’d like to take it a step further, or else, a bodycon tube dress works as well.

Go lace-on-lace by wearing a bralet underneath a tube top, and pair it with ruffled culottes for some girlie flair. Throw on a biker jacket for a cool cover-up!
