The famous Hollywood costume designer Edith Head once said: “A dress should be tight enough to show you’re a woman and loose enough to prove you’re a lady.”
That’s especially true as we age when too tight, too short or too much skin can make a woman over 40 looks downright desperate.
You have to have some mystery. So with that in mind, here are some very simple ways to look mysterious, classy and pretty this-this Valentine’s Day.
1. Try an Off The Shoulder Top
You don’t have to wear a top cut down to attract your man’s attention. A cold shoulder top or a top that is slightly off the shoulder will give you lots of sex appeal. Your shoulders are sexier than you think and a classy way to look alluring after 40.
2. Look Seductive in a Dress With a Slit or Zipper
A classic dress like a sheath or a pencil skirt that has a slit up the side or a zipper up the middle looks chic but sensual too. It’s a hint of things to come, in a tasteful way of course.
3. Ruffles can look Ravishing
A small ruffle is a wonderful way to whisper you’re interested. There’s nothing more feminine than a flirty frill.
4. Slip-On a Sexy Shoe
A heel is always sexy because it elongates the leg and accentuates your wiggle, but it doesn’t have to be sky-high crazy to be sexy. A small, slim kitten heel is also very inviting. The vamp of the shoe also makes a difference. The deeper the cut of the shoe, the more skin that shows on the top of the foot, the sexier the shoe. Every heard of toe cleavage? It’s a great way to look alluring in a subtle, grown-up way.
5. Pop On a Bit of Make-up (even if you normally don’t wear it)
A bit of make-up will bring color and life to your face and enhance your femininity. Throw on a some pink lipstick and add some blush to your cheeks. After 40 our eyes can look bare and sunken. A touch of mascara goes a long way to make eyes look bright, youthful and pretty.
