DRESSING FOR DATING 101

May 09 2013

I'm always pleased when my girlfriends ask me for dating advice. Now that I'm married, helping my ladies dress sexy when they start dating a new guy is one of my favorite hobbies!

We all know them: Amazing women over the age of 30. You concentrate on your career, you're fabulous, you're going on dates, and you're on top of the world! Then it gets a little harder; all of your friends are married and having kids. You've been in a relationship for a really long time and then all of a sudden, you're back in the dating world and don't know the rules anymore.

When you're planning for the date, there's a fine line between dressing sexy and overtly slutty. It’s always good to feel like a lady, but there's nothing wrong with flaunting what you've got! My girlfriends always show me their outfits and I say, “No, we've got to cinch the belt a little bit. I need to see your waist! What happened to the waist?”

I believe that when you start dating again and feeling good about yourself, the real key is to truly love what you're wearing. Whether it's a sexy set of lingerie, or a tank with a pair of skinny jeans - Everything that you wear, even if you're on a budget, can be sexy and sophisticated if you put your mind to it. I always think it's important to wear something that shows off your figure. Unsure about your choice? Ask a friend for an honest critique. If you’re going with a blouse, keep a few buttons open and wear a cleavage enhancing bodysuit underneath. It will leave just enough to the imagination.

At the end of the day, a successful date outfit comes down to understanding your shape, accentuating the positive, and feeling good about yourself.
