I’m recently divorced, back on the dating scene and have no idea how to dress. What can I wear that looks sexy, but isn’t so skimpy it reveals everything? Thanks,Liz P.Hi Liz,
We get this question all the time. Who wants to go out looking like a 21-year-old dressed for night of clubbing? Where’s the fine line between that looking sexy, and looking sleazy, especially after 40?
Our answer is always the same. If you want to look feminine, alluring and classy, we suggest you try a wrap dress. Diane Von Furstenberg’s classic wrap dress from the 70′s is back and more popular than ever. Its figure flattering, waist clinching, bust enhancing ability, makes it the perfect pick for almost any woman. Even if you have a few extra pounds, the way this dress drapes will make you look sculpted and 10 pounds lighter.
We’ve both just bought one think it’s the perfect dress for almost anything and can be dressed up or down with accessories. Plus, it travels like a dream. It’s lightweight you can throw it in your bag and it’s always so comfy because it’s made of its soft jersey silk fabric.
Here are some tips for wearing a wrap dress:
- If you are not planning to wear hose and want to keep things looking smooth, wear some shapewear like Spanx to eliminate any panty lines, bumps and bulges.
- Some wrap dresses have a tendency to come open at the top. Make sure that you buy the correct size or wear a camisole underneath. We find that the non-lace ones look better with this tailored look.
- If you are not that busty, this is a great time to have some fun with a pretty padded push up bra!
- O.k. What about the shoes? The formality of the print and the size of print will dictate the heel. The wilder the print, the chunkier you can go with the heel . That means you can do anything from a more delicate heel to a wedge.
As Diane would say, “Feel like a woman, wear a dress!”
