When you want to look as good as you feel, whether it’s for a friend’s bachelorette party or a cozy night in with your partner, outfits that toe the line of sensual without being too revealing are often the goal. If you’re shopping with an occasion in mind, this curated list of affordably chic and subtly sensual pieces includes plenty of items you’re likely to love. From luxe pajamas to tailored pencil dresses and sophisticated jumpsuits, these picks often balance flashes of skin or curve-hugging fits with elements that are drapey or fuller coverage.

If you’re going out, of course, there’s plenty of room to play. A lingerie-inspired satin slip dress or skirt is appealing rather than overt when it comes in a midi hem, and anything that wraps or drapes is elegantly fluid. On the other hand, maybe a lace-trimmed camisole peeking out from under a cardigan is all you need that day. Basics can be unexpectedly head-turning, too, like the perfectly clingy turtleneck bodysuit or jeans that look tailor-made for your body.

Staying in? Try satin pajamas or a matching athleisure lingerie set from a loungewear icon. Slouchy sweaters with low wrap necklines are invitingly cozy, and never underestimate the power of a cute lace bralette to make you feel fine AF even if you’re lounging by yourself at home. These 42 chic yet alluring Amazon finds are delightfully priced for treating yourself — special occasion optional.
