Peek-a-boo: Fashion’s New Erogenous Zones

Cancel the cleavage and forget those figure-hugging dresses because there’s a whole host of new erogenous zones to expose this summer.

Erogenous zones have always been prone to the whims of fashion and this season is no different. Designers have been playing peek-a-boo with some new unexpected hot spots from a sliver of skin at the waist to a flash of flesh at the shoulders. Read on as we reveal the latest erogenous zones below…

The Midriff

Spotted all over the fashion sphere from the catwalks to Coachella, the midriff is the unrefuted star of the season. Highlighting a woman’s waist, the key is to expose just a smidgen of skin, leaving lots to the imagination.

How to Wear

Epitomising ladylike elegance, a printed crop top worn with a matching skirt makes the ultimate power pairing. Alternatively, mix and match by teaming a neutral coloured crop top with an eye-catching statement skirt, with just a hint of skin exposed in the middle.

The Shoulder

The key to the new erogenous zones is unexpectedness and the shoulder makes the perfect example. Proving that the power of suggestion is much sexier than overexposure, a show of the shoulders is enough to set the sartorial pulses racing this season.

How to Wear

Tap into the boho seventies trend with an off-the-shoulder gypsy top or dress paired with this season’s key sandal shape, the gladiator. For an understated day-to-day city cool look, stick to black and white décolletage-baring pieces that can take you from desk-to-dinner, before turning to bold and bright colours for holidays in the sun.

The Back

Forget the obvious erogenous zones (we’re talking the boobs, bum and legs) and say hello to the latest erogenous zone commanding attention on the catwalk and beyond: the back. That’s right, the back is well and truly back on our fashion radar, and it seems we are not the only ones; stars and street stylers can’t get enough either, rocking the look all over town.

How to Wear

Look for dresses or jumpsuits with a low cut back or interesting detailing such as bows and cross over straps for a look that is guaranteed to not only turn heads when you walk into a room, but when you leave too. Be sure to keep the front of your outfit chic and simple to let the back half do all the talking.
