How to Look Hot Effortlessly

Rashida Khilawala Mar 12, 2020
Looking hot isn't just about outfits and makeup, it entails having the right attitude and personality. Fortunately, these attributes can be developed. If you want to add that 'oomph factor' to your personality, you've got to move beyond those inhibitions, to begin with.
When we think about the term 'hot', we also associate it with sexy, sultry, confident, elegant, beautiful and smart. We see celebrities like Johnny Depp, Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt, George Clooney, Halle Berry and many more, and we say "Wow, they are so hot!" We aspire to look just as hot as them, but without burning a hole in our pockets.
Being hot is just a state of mind. It does not depend on what your body looks like or how much skin you show. You can look sultry even by being fully clothed. Being well-endowed with feminine assets should not be a criterion as far as hotness is concerned.
Let's face it, Keira Knightley isn't exceptionally endowed, but she is one of the world's hottest women! Here's the lowdown on looking gorgeous everyday.

Hygiene and Health

The key to looking attractive for girls as well as boys is maintaining good personal hygiene. Nails of both the fingers and toes must be clean.
You should smell good; so, take a shower and spray some fragrant deodorants. Brush your teeth twice a day for oral hygiene. Work towards improving the health of your skin. Eat right and avoid acidic and gassy foods. Start exercising to keep yourself fit.


There are a very wide range of cosmetics that you can use to beautify yourself. Whatever makeup products you buy, just make sure that they suit your skin tone.
Look at things in a broader perspective while trying new looks and styles. Accentuate your best feature; for example, if it's your eyes, then apply eyeliner in such a way that your eyes look fresh and stand out. Whatever you do, remember that the key to pulling off any look is self-confidence.

Be Trendy

It doesn't matter if your clothes are unbranded or off the rack from some designer store. You should wear clothes that fit you right, not those that are too loose or sizes too small.
They should be clean and suit your body type. You can wear something plain and simple, and accessorize it with some fun jewelry and bags (for girls). Boys can wear a good belt and some nice shoes to complete the look. Follow a trend but tweak it up in your own way.
For example, if the trend is skinny jeans and tank tops, and you are on the chubby side, then you can tweak it up by adding a jacket to it, or wear a sweater instead of the tank top. Fashion is like art, it keeps evolving, making you also change with it.


When I say personality, I mean that you should be friendly. Do not stop being with your friends just because they are not in the "hot" category.
Whatever your personality maybe, you should carry it off with style and elegance, yet not come across as overconfident. You should have an aura about you that people get attracted to and want to befriend you. It's all in the way you carry yourself, with grace and confidence. Develop the ability to make heads turn your way, wherever you go!


Be charming and spontaneous. Flirt in a subtle way. You could just smile and talk to people, and maintaining good eye contact (not in the creepy, stalker way!) will do 90% of the job for you. Showing cleavage or too much leg (for girls) and flexing your muscles too often or using cheesy lines (for boys) are very primitive techniques in flirting.
So, please keep these methods at bay. Keep your flirting and charm casual, fresh, and funny. Be witty and quirky, but not rude and insensitive.

Your Walk

The way you walk says a lot about your personality. If you walk with your shoulders hunched, you are nervous, dispirited or low on self-esteem.
If you strut, then you may seem arrogant. You should walk in a graceful and dignified manner (for girls), and the boys should have a bit of a swagger to their walk. Maintain a good posture while doing this.
These steps are important for being hot and being loved for it. Keep your head on your shoulders and never compromise on your principles. Remember to have faith and patience to transform yourself into the beautiful butterfly, you always wanted to be! I leave you with a quote:
"It's important for all types of women to know that you don't have to fit a prototype of what one person thinks is beautiful in order to be beautiful or feel beautiful.... People think, Sexy, big breasts, curvy body, no cellulite. It's not that. 
Take the girl at the beach with the cellulite legs, wearing her bathing suit the way she likes it, walking with a certain air, comfortable with herself. That woman is sexy. Then you see the perfect girl who's really thin, tugging at her bathing suit, wondering how her hair looks. That's not sexy." - JENNIFER LOPEZ, Readers Digest, Aug. 2003
