No matter if you're on a first date or spending an evening with a long time love – it’s always important to bring your best self to a night out – especially with Valentine's Day coming up! Here, my ‘rules’ to highlighting all your amazing qualities (and curves, duh!) for a classy – not trashy – night on the town with your true love.
Do: Show off some skin! It is a date after-all! Got gams like Heidi Klum? Work this Little Black Dress by Trixxi and highlight those stems!
Don’t: Show off too much skin! A hint of décolleté, or the aforementioned leg: Never both. You do want to leave your date guessing.
Do: Keep your jewels simple; you want your personality to sparkle the most! But for a little extra bling, I like the clean look of crystal studs. (What girl doesn’t?!)
Don’t: Wear flats. Even if you’re wearing pants, you want to elongate your figure (and have a sexy strut!), so wear heels that will get you noticed! Love the punchy brights available in these Jessica Simpson pumps. Bonus: The super high platform on these ensures hi-style comfort!
Do: Rock a bold lip. Remember in Clueless when Cher was trying to snag Christian? One of her gems of knowledge from that scene still stays with me, “Anything you can do to draw attention to your mouth is good!" This is the perfect time for a classic red lip.
Don’t: Skimp on the details. Be sure to include a fabulous bold clutch with your outfit. This BCBGeneration bag has a sweet front strap, so no worries about dropping it on the dance floor!
Do: Be Yourself! That goes without saying!
Happy Valentine’s Day!
