1. HIGH SLIT DRESS

If you're wearing a leg-baring dress with a sexy slit, lateral jumping lunges will define your quads and calves (with a ~bonus~ booty burn):

How to do it: Take a large step forward with your right foot. Keeping your shoulders stacked over your hips, bend both knees 90 degrees as you raise your left arm and send your right arm behind you. In one explosive movement, extend both legs and reverse arms as you jump to your right, landing with your left leg a large step ahead of your right and knees soft. Reverse arms and legs as you jump back to your left, landing in starting position to complete one rep.

2. STRAPLESS DRESS 

Strapless dresses show off your entire d├ęcolletage. The dumbbell clean and press will engage the muscles in your arms and shoulders, so you'll be psyched to show them off.

How to do it: Grab a 5- to 10-pound dumbbell in each hand and hold the weights along your sides, palms facing each other. Sit your hips back into a deep squat, then press up through your heels to stand, using your momentum to curl the dumbbells up to your chest. Sit back into a second squat. When you come up, use your momentum to press the dumbbells straight up overhead. Release the dumbbells to your sides to complete one rep.

3. OPEN-BACK DRESS 

Your back is the main event in this sexy style. Try dumbbell plank rows to define your back muscles

How to do it: Grab two 5- to 10-pound dumbbells and get into hands plank position with your shoulders stacked over your wrists and your body in a straight line between the top of your head and your heels. Keeping your hips square to the floor, lift the dumbbell in your right hand to chest height, keeping your elbow close to the body. Release with control and repeat on the opposite side to complete one rep. Continue to alternate sides.

4. SLINKY DRESS

Silk sheaths look ethereal AF, but their clingy fabric is completely unforgiving. Pounce push-ups work your core, chest, arms, and booty all at once for a sleek silhouette.

How to do it: Get into plank position with your shoulders stacked over your wrists and your body in a straight line between the top of your head and your heels. Bend your elbows to bring your body toward the ground. Then press back up to plank position and bend your knees to bring your hips back toward your heels. Return to starting position and continue. (If the move feels too challenging, drop to your knees during the push-up portion.)

5. DEEP-PLUNGING DRESS 

While a plunging neckline can make it difficult to wear a bra, strengthening the chest muscles with diamond push-ups can give your girls a subtle lift while improving your posture — so everything looks perkier.

How to do it: Get into plank position with your thumbs and pointer fingers touching (they should form a diamond shape). Your body should form a straight line between the top of your head and your heels. Bend your elbows along your sides to bring your body toward the ground. Then press back up to plank position to complete one rep. (If the move feels too challenging, drop to your knees.)

6. FIT AND FLARE DRESS 

Unlike dresses with full skirts, this style follows your curves, often cupping the butt. Swiss ball hip thrusts with a hamstring curl will make the backs of your thighs and booty burn, resulting in a sexy lift.

How to do it: Lie on your back with your arms along your sides and heels on a Swiss ball placed near your butt. Pressing into your heels, lift your hips straight up toward the ceiling. With control, extend your legs to roll the ball away from you. Next, engage your hamstrings to bring the ball back in toward your butt, and release your hips to the ground with control and complete one rep.
