Although fall and winter are inevitable, we have a feeling people are going to hold on to a certain trend that's been taking over this summer long after the warm weather disappears. In a word, that trend is "sexy." We use quotes because everyone, rightfully so, has a different definition of sexy. In this case, we're referring to the fact that cutout, sheer, strappy, formfitting, and low-rise are all buzzwords to describe the current fashion zeitgeist. Understandably, this is far easier to achieve in the summer when it makes much more sense to wear a small amount of clothing. But although the temperatures will be cooling soon, the desire to keep wearing skin-baring items is not.

So what's a fashion lover to do? Well, for starters, keep reading this story. We've pulled together a jaw-droppingly good edit of chic, "sexy" items that are surprisingly appropriate for fall. We also found you some great examples of Instagram's best dressed displaying how to pull off the "sexy" vibe in a cool, fashion-y way. Scroll for all the outfit inspiration and trendy items your fashion-girl heart desires.
