Love is in the air: your fashion map to finding love
What's even more nerve-wrecking than waiting for your crush to finally ask you out is finding the perfect first date outfit to knock 'em dead. Don't fret my smitten fashionistas, I have put together the ultimate shopping love map that leads straight from the stores to your lover's heart (with the a little help from beSleek).
La Vie en Rose
Even though your special someone may not get to see your lovely undergarments, you’ll feel even more beautiful knowing you have a sexy secret under your date night outfit. Before you start the hunt for your main outfit, stop by La Vie en Rose to pick up some seductive underwear. Need a helpful hint? Men typically like darker hues like navy and black. Opt for a wistful white if your date if during the warmer months to compliment your tan. For a more traditional look, choose bra and undies in a classic fit to make a soft and charming first impression.
Add some color to attract his attention
A surefire way to ensure your date only has eyes for you is by adding color to your first date outfit. Colorful dresses enhances the femininity of any women and when done correctly, it compliments all shapes and sizes so be sure to choose wisely for your body type because nothing is more sexy than a woman comfortable in her own skin. Our favorites are: the two-tone sundress ($ 64.95); the bandage tube dress, for sexy curves; the maxi striped dress for a casual vibe ($ 39.95).
Comfort equals sexy confidence
Jacob makes soft, casual and comfortable basics, which can help you keep your cool when the heart palpitations become too intense! Avoid fabric overload like wraps an shawls and choose to amp up the sex factor. Of course you should show some skin but keep it classy and leave something for his imagination. We love these three styles of cropped pants: fitted black pant ($ 49.99), the tight trousers (29.99), and the floral print pants. Pair them with a simple tee or jazz up your black pants with a sleeveless striped blouse, striped ($ 24.99) and add bracelets for a pop of color. Grey pants with white sleeveless lace camisole ($ 34.99) paired with low converse or ballerina flats will help you pull off the casual cutie look. Want to wear prints? Be sure to match your printed pants with a solid top like a plunging black camisole.
No matter where you go on your first date like a baseball game, trendy restaurant, or even a walk in the park, denim is a girl’s best friend. As we all know, it’s important to choose a style that flatters your figure. What we love about denim is the array of washes and silhouettes. Choose a darker wash if you are feeling daring or a lighter wash for a flirtier vibe. Skinny jeans are still on top trend wise, but dare to be bold in a high-waist jean for a throwback to the 70’s. Our casual jean suggestion is the Isabella ($ 89.00) but for a sexier denim suggestion buy the Gisele ($ 108.00).
Time to top it off and all about the accessory
Once you’ve got your bottom covered, it’s time to find its picture perfect match to top it off. Start by rummaging the loft at Simons for tops and tanks. Our favorite brands include Vero Moda for a youthful and current look and you can never go wrong with Chloe’s fun, playful, and feminine pieces. One of the major trends this summer is transparency so take the opportunity to be seductive in a see-through top. Don’t forget to stop by the main floor to peruse their array of accessories. Stack your bracelets or mix-and-match your earrings and bracelet for an edgier look. Wear a white-hot bag for added appeal or a candy-colored bag to hone in on the color-blocking trend.
Mimi and Coco
For fluid, soft and comfortable tops, you can always count on the Quebec’s based and Italian made company Mimi and Coco. We love the wide colorful selection of camisoles, tees in both short and long sleeved versions, and savvy cardigans. Their pieces also offer varying necklines, so be sure to pick one that goes best with your figure. To show some rock sensibility, any of their loose printed white camisoles paired with vintage jeans, a statement bag, and some stacked bracelets will have your date singing your praises.
And remember, no matter what you wear, have fun!
