14 Sexy, Daring Pieces to Try This Summer


There are so many trends this summer that riff lightly on the theme of bondage, whether they’re cutout harnesses, caged lace-up heels, even body jewelry. Here at the Cut, we would argue that there’s something fun — empowering, even — about dressing in shades of dominatrix, be it a banded crop top, a carefully cut swimsuit, or simply a pair of killer heels. And so, in pursuit of  the most wearable but still provocative things — and, in honor of the Cut’s Summer Sex Week — we rounded up our favorite items that feel inherently seductive, most of which are subtle enough to be worn with (or under) your everyday look. From delicate gold chains to wear peeking out from underneath a crisp cotton shirt to sexy summer lingerie and come-hither heels, we have you covered.
