Going out, especially on a date, can be exhausting, and not just because you dance like a maniac, walk around in too-high heels, and stay up way too late. Going out is exhausting because after awhile, it gets harder and harder to figure out what to wear. Skinny jeans have been done a million times, that little black dress in your closet has been worn to death, and your reliable sparkly tank tops seem a little less sparkly after the one hundredth wear…
… which is why we’ve brainstormed some new options for Date Night (or Girls Night Out) Sexy. Here are your new combos for getting dolled up:
Loosen Up Swap the skinny-jeans-and-tight-top combo for something a bit classier. Harem pants might be a scary proposition, but we suggest choosing a conservative pair with a not-too-dramatic drop crotch in a subtle black satin. As in the picture above, pair with a loose low-cut tank, simple pumps, and some chunky jewelry like oversized bangles or a cocktail ring. Try ArynK’s Gilded Harem Pants from Nasty Gal ($68) with the Sexuali-Tank ($24) from American Apparel.
Sheer Appeal This season, sheer fabrics have wafted into the style world as one of fashion’s biggest trends. Couple a sheer top with loose sleeves with a bralette (like a bra, but with more coverage) to play peekaboo underneath. To balance out the looseness of the top, go with skinny black pants on the bottom and a chunky heel for weight. We’re loving the Kimchi Blue Silky Floral Bed Jacket ($58) from Urban Outfitters over Free People’s Cropped Lace Bralette ($38) in sexy black.
Tough Girl Heels get old, but booties are utterly au courant. Work an outfit around the weightiness of a hefty ankle boot with the lightness of a loose mini dress, representing both your tough and girly sides. Try the Parker Floral Print Cami Dress ($187) from Piperlime with Aldo’s Vecino ankle boot in Dark Brown (on sale, $97.99) and textured tights in brown or gray.
