9 Garments Sexier Than Lingerie

Valentine's Day is rapidly approaching, and with it the fuss around finding the perfect seductive lingerie for the occasion, whether you like it or not. It's the time of year when Victoria's Secret goes into marketing overdrive, and companies like Kiki de Montparnasse start to look tempting under the pressure of looking exceptionally provocative sans clothing. This Valentine's Day, instead of purchasing a luxe lingerie ensemble that will be hidden under layers of bulky winter clothing, why not invest in a sultry garment that can be admired by your adoring public? We combed through our favorite online retailers and found nine garments that are infinitely sexier than lingerie.
