Date night is a special night, so even if you worked all day, it’s a great time to change out of your work clothes and into something a little sexy. Plus you’re not sure what’s going on with you two lately. Make your time together extra-memorable with a date-night look that just screams, “Um, wait, are you mad at me??”
A Glossy Eye
Sure, a smoky eye’s sexy, but it’s been done to death. Plus during the hot summer months, dark eye makeup can leave you looking more like Gene Simmons than Jean Harlow. A glossy eye is modern, fresh and light. There are tons of eye-glosses on the market but if you’re in a pinch–or on a budget– a swipe of Vaseline on your upper lid is all you need to say “I know you said earlier that nothing was wrong, but things are just feeling a little weird, are you sure everything’s ok?” Mix in some shimmery shadow for a glam bonus!
A Slit Skirt
Short, tight dresses are obvious day to night attire. It definitely doesn’t hurt to show a little skin, but instead of heavy cleavage and bared thighs, do the grown up version with a long skirt that’s slit up to there. You’ll look both classy and alluring in this look that even a deaf person could hear saying “it’s just that I’m feeling some distance or something and, maybe it’s nothing, maybe it’s just the way you’ve been feeling lately in general, but honestly, it feels like maybe there’s something you’re not telling me.”
What a pair of Manolo Blahnik stilettos were to the girls of Sex and the City, a pair of platform sandals can be to you. They’re practical and modern without being frumpy and they’re a whole lot easier to walk in. For a practical shoe that’s still date-night sexy opt for a slim platform heel in a neutral color that bares your ankle and gently whispers “I know that I’m probably being annoying and I don’t want to be but honestly it feels like you’re a million miles away. “
Skip the cheesy “going out tops” in favor of a one-piece romper or jumpsuit. A one piece is playful and sexy which is exactly what you want your date night look to be. Slip into one and let it purr “I’m sorry, I know you hate when I harp on stuff like this I just feel like if we don’t tell each other what we’re feeling it’s just going to grow and fester and will ultimately drive an inextricable wedge between us, pushing us apart and destroying the last shred of remaining hope I have in the possibility of finding a love that’s real.”
These looks are sexy and steamy and most importantly telegraph that you think he might be mad at you. Now have fun!
