Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

In the February issue of Cosmopolitan, the "Sexiness Redefined" spread takes a look at how to really spice up those staple outfits you always wear. Like this one: "Brave a bralet with a long miniskirt, and add a cropped leather jacket for an edgy feel."

They also have a thought on suiting, a style of dress favored for work environments because it's not at all sexy: "Create the new power suit with a butt-length blazer and showstopping short shorts." We're sure this isn't meant to be worn in the office, but since there's no disclaimer we're interpreting it as Cosmo thinks your work attire should be a little more Samantha Jones and a little less Boston Legal. Happy Friday!
