Going out for a romantic Valentine’s Day dinner and want to look sexy, but not too exposed? Here are some tips to look alluring, not desperate at 40, 50 and beyond.
1. Show Some Skin
Don’t wear a turtleneck on a date if you want to look sexy. That Diane Keaton kind of coverage signals stay away. Showing some skin is youthful and alluring. Notice I said some.
2. Just Reveal One a Section
Letting it all hang out in a skimpy outfit is vulgar. Dressing in clothes your teenager would wear clubbing will make you look hard, tacky and worn out. Everything is heading south after all. So where’s the middle ground?
To look sexy, not sleazy or silly, just reveal one part of you body. A sneak peek is better than a striptease! If you have a great bust, try a low-cut V-neck top, but that’s it. Don’t wear a mini skirt with that top. Wear a regular skirt, like a knee-length pencil skirt and put all the focus up top. It’s all about balance.
3. Fight the Tight
Resist the urge to go super tight to look sexy. Clothes should be fitted, but forget about size tags.If you wear a size 6 when you are really a size 10, you’ll look fat. Clothes that skim your silhouette and have some stretch are sexy. Looking like a stuffed sausage is not sexy at any age.
4. Wear Sexy Sweaters
Sexy is not simply about baring skin or a tight fit! You can look alluring in other ways. For example, a Cashmere sweater makes you look sexy because it is very soft, feminine and touchable. It makes your sweetie want to reach out and touch you, as if you were a fluffy kitten.
5. Learn to Love Leather
Leather with its raw edge signals power, passion and excitment. Wear it in moderation, not head to toe, or you will look like a geriatric domanatrix! Colored leather is easier to wear than black and looks sexy and modern. A Leather jacket worn over a feminine, flirty dress is sexy.
6. Wear a Dress With Stretch and Drape
The wrap dress is one of my all time favorite sexy dresses. It’s usually made from soft silk or jersey and the gentle wrap hugs your body and highlights your curves.
7. Animal Prints Bring Out the Tiger
Put a little tiger in his tank with a touch of the wild. Any kind of animal print like an animal print scarf or pair or pumps is enough to get him roaring.
8. Shiny is Sexy
Here’s a trick from the material girl herself. Madonna has stopped wearing cone bras, but still wants to look sexy, so recently she has taken a shine to satin. Shiny fabrics lie this allow her to be a little more modestly dressed, but still transmit a very seductive message.
9. Choose Sexy Accessories
The right accessories make an outfit sexy. Purses that swing, jewelry that hangs down and dangles, such as long earrings or a long necklace that land near your bust, is tantalizing.
10. Try A Smokey Eye
Adjusting your make-up can make you more alluring, just try it and see. The eyes are the mirror to the soul so why not try that dark smokey eye you’ve been reading about to add a little mystery. A dark kohl liner and some smudging will make you look more passionate and playful. Keep the rest of your make-up, lips and cheeks, soft so your eyes take centre stage.
