During Australian Fashion Week, the street-style pros schooled us in how to reveal skin in the chicest way possible. It's sexy, but not too racy; alluring, but not scandalous. From open-back tops to cold-shoulder silhouettes, we found six snaps that serve as plenty of style inspo, just in time for Memorial Day weekend (and for the rest of summer). Show off a whole lot of leg with a micro mini or offer just a glimpse with a demure peekaboo cut-out. Limit skin exposure to one area at a time and you're all set. But don't take our word for it—see for yourself from the stylish stars from Down Under.
1. Give the Cold Shoulder
Bare your shoulders with a chic evening top, but offset it with a pair of jeans to keep it casual.
2. Try a Tiny Peek
Not into too-much skin exposure? Reveal just a glimpse of your lower back.
3. Fashion an Open-Back Top
If you don't own an open-back top, wear your cardigan backwards and tie it loosely around the waist.
4. Show Off Your Legs
Rock your micro mini with a oversize blazer so you're covered on top.
5. Bring Sexy Back...
... with a backless top, but stop it from going into too-sexy territory with a pair of high-waist jeans.
6. Slash Your Shoulders
Unexpectedly reveal skin with a demure long-sleeve turtleneck with cut-out slashes at the shoulders.
