Curve confidence
While women might not always turn to the opposite sex for fashion advice, we can take a cue from our male counterparts when it comes to having confidence in how we look — after all, men are most always vocal about womankind's need to embrace her curves!  Another surprising place to turn to for inspiration is Hollywood, where stars like Sofia Vergara, Kim Kardashian and Beyonce are famous for flaunting their beautiful, feminine figures rather than hiding them. If you're looking to amp up your own silhouette for an evening out, Body Wrap Shapewear is a favorite for seductively-designed lingerie that provides all the body-firming benefits we've grown to know and love without sacrificing style (Sheer Iridesscent Collection $34-78, www.Bodywrap-Shapewear.com)

Effortless beauty
It's no secret that men are attracted to that "just-rolled-out-of-bed" look.  And while celebrity favorites like Jennifer Aniston & Gisele Bundchen count on a glam squad to perfect their famously imperfect coiffs, there are a few tips you can use to enhance your natural beauty at home.  When it comes to hair, start at the root and tease your crown for a quick and effortlessly chic lift (3 Row Comb, Spornette Little Wonder $4.50-4.99, Folica.com). Got2B's new Powder'ful Voluminizing Style Powder is another great way to give your locks a sultry boost ($5.99; CVS.com). Another quick tip — instead of weighing your strands down with heavy gel or spray, try working a touch of mousse through the ends for perfectly tousled tresses (Got2b Powder’fuls $5.99, CVS.com; Pureology’s Silk Bodifier, John Frieda Mousse $6-26, Ulta.com)

Don't forget the details
Although unkempt hair and easy, breezy clothes can create sensuous style, don't underestimate the power of a few dainty details.  Having your nails and toes polished up in a rich, red shade is a favorite of both men and women alike (Sinful Colors Nailpolish $1.99, Walgreens.com). And since 'scent' is the sense most closely tied to memory, why not embrace a signature fragrance? Consistently spritzing a particular perfume can be a memorable accent, so if you haven't found your favorite yet, consider a "sampler" set from Sephora, which includes ten trial size vials and a certificate to purchase a full size bottle (Sephora Favorites Deluxe Fragrance Sampler for Her $50; sephora.com)

Lace it up! Learn how to wear the pretty trend

Comfy is cute
Last but not least, a simple bit of advice regarding high heels: if you can’t walk confidently in them, don’t! There are plenty of fancy flats that can make a sexy statement. Isabel Toledo designed a playful collection of footwear for Payless, and her Marina Loafer is as chic as any pump ($44.99, Payless.com). Sam Edelman's Adena studded loafers are a head-turning ‘where did you get those’ option that won't leave you teetering uncomfortably on the sidewalk — after all there's nothing sexier than having a solid swagger ($150, SamEdelman.com).
