Would you dare to go out in public playing peek-a-boo?  Peek-a-boo fashion, that is! The answer probably depends on where you are going, and on how much skin you will actually be showing.

Peek-a-boo clothing is, well, showy! Whether you are dressed in a garment that exposes just a little bit of skin, or if you are adorned in a barely-there outfit, peek-a-boo garments are definitely seen as as fabulously fierce fashion fabrics.

Most of us are familiar with the game Peek-a-boo. Peek-a-boo is a game usually played with babies or small children. In the game, the older player hides his/her face, either behind an object or behind their hands, and then pops back into the baby’s or child’s view, and says “Peek-a-boo!” Sometimes followed by “I see you!”

Peek-a-boo clothing takes its name by having some portions of the garment’s material absent, or open, thereby creating an image where the wearer shows a little bit of skin that is often hidden behind a full garment, hence the name peek-a-boo. A portion of generally covered up skin pops out. Sheer, see through fabric is also another element of peek-a-boo clothing

Punchy, playful, powerful!

Here is a photograph of me wearing a peek-a-boo top. The open space in my black top that shows a portion of my upper chest area (appearing as if a stretch of the material has been removed) constitutes this top as a peek-a-boo item of clothing.

Peek-a-boo clothes are playful, provocative and are a great way to show a little sex appeal in a nice way!

You say a lot by showing a little. The term less is more does apply with peek-a-boo clothes, which can walk a thin line between peep fun and peepshow.

Peek-a-boo clothes can show open skin, use see through mesh material to show skin, and play peek-a-boo in the back side of the garment, as well as in the front of the garment.

Peek-a-boo clothing, if worn tastefully, creates a fun, fashion forward look that titillates and teases the senses in a playful, alluring way. For everyday wear or evening wear, too much peek-a-boo can appear vulgar or crude.

Fashion Fun Fact: The trick with pulling peek-a-boo clothing off to perfection is to show just enough skin so as to entice and wet the visual appetite. Sexy and sensual and stylish! Leave your admirers wanting more!
Can we say vivid imaginations?

Peek-a-boo! I see you!

When peek-a-boo ensembles are mixed with regal, classy clothes, the phrase is “Peek-a-boo, we all see you.” Yes, everyone in the room will be staring at you and your attractive “peek-a-boo” confidence.

When you want to show off your lovely legs, peek-a-boo stockings and pants are a great way to go. Not only are the leg hugging clothing energetic and fun, but they provide some warmth that you wouldn’t get if you went completely bare legged.

Fashionable, frisky and fierce!

Musical Peek-a-Boo Fun Fact: “Peek-a-Boo” is a song by the English alternative rock band Siouxsie and the Banshees. The song was released in 1988 as the first single from the band’s ninth studio album Peepshow. The music paper Melody Maker described the song as a ‘brightly unexpected mixture of black steel and pop disturbance” and qualified its genre as “thirties hip hop.” Are you brave enough and daring enough to go out dressed in fashion frisky peek-a-boo?
