FREE THE SKIN!
Date nights are very special memories for every lady out there, especially when with the right man. And true to say, ladies spend hours and hours trying to dress up just to look great for the night. I mean, who wouldn’t want to look great and turn heads all around?
At times, I get to see ladies getting out of their way and dressing themselves skimpily while others dress normally. As well, some dress perfectly for the night. And a common occurrence is seeing ladies showing more skin than necessary only to earn every man’s attention. But wait, I think we all know that decency goes hand in hand with being beautiful, right? So to me, over-showing what shouldn’t be isn’t an option, and never will it be. And more so, it shouldn’t be yours too!
As a beautiful lady, one should learn to show skin perfectly. Hit it right when it comes to exposing that soft skin of yours for that date night and you can be sure you’ll look even sleeker and more decent. So ladies, there is just one rule that governs showing skin strategically in order to impress your date while still keeping your dignity and maximum comfort. Wondering what it is? Well, here it goes…
CHOOSE JUST ONE BODY PART AND SHOW IT OFF!
I mean, know what to ‘bare’ and know what not to ‘bare’; and once you know what to bare, bare it with a lady-like integrity!
Sometimes back, I happened to see a lady dressed in a short strapless back-slit dress and it wasn’t hard to notice the discomfort in her date’s eyes. Guess what they call that? THE LAW OF FREEZING AND SHINNING! Ladies can be very funny! It can be very cold but just to show off the cute dress they got, they’ll forget to bring along a coat. I know the ‘gentleman’ could lend you, but you won’t be comfortable even while sitting or even walking. And if you’ll be off to a date with a ‘man’, there is no way you’ll be getting his coat! Ha-ha! I mean…aren’t gentlemen so rare?
Anyway, that lady was not comfortable at all. Blame me not for being so observant but I didn’t like how she kept on pulling her dress down and even keeping her expensive handbag on her laps for the better part of the night just to keep covered what the dress should have! I was so glad to see them walk out and the gentleman lent her his trench coat just before they reached the door. So lovelies, would you really want to be in such a situation? I don’t think so!
Thus let’s show our skin strategically! How? Ride along to find out 5 different ways of showing skin strategically!
1. Embrace Your Sexy Cleavage!
Women’s chest bear a pair of God-given treasures hence you can try show your sexy cleavage in a classy, sleek and seductive manner while still keeping your decency. When it comes to showing off your cleavage, ensure your first wear the right bra depending on the type of neckline your outfit bears. And yes, some outfits won’t even require one. All that depends!And importantly, avoid showing off the rest of your body parts so that attention can be drawn to your sexy cleavage. You could ascertain that from this white-on-beige look.
The gorgeous coat works in case of a cold night or when you get kind of uncomfortable with your too much chest skin out. At least you won’t have to fold your arms over your chest, right?
Yet again, be a lover of neck pieces especially if you’d love to show your cleavage; from statement neck pieces to thin necklaces. All will add detail to that part of your chest and you can be sure that no one will fail to take notice of that.
2. Show Off Your Kissable Shoulders
Delicate collarbones are a great attraction especially on a date night and to show them off, go for a great strapless dress or an off-shoulder dress. There is nothing as seductive as a cute bandage dress that draws out your tempting shoulders and the perfect glimpse of your neck. Depending on the weather, you can reach out for a dress or a jumpsuit (I’ve found them very workable for some time now).
I’m certain you love these two looks, right? As much as they are decent, they are very sexy!
3. Let Your Long Beautiful Legs Stand Out!
With a short hemline or rather shorts, you can show off your long lovely legs. But for a disclaimer, only show off your legs if you take them to be your source of pride. I must admit I do and my long legs are almost always shown off in all that I wear.
I’d comfortably wear white-on-red set and for a colder night, perhaps I’d add on a cute pair of fishnet nights for a sexier vibe. Which one would you? The yellow dress?
4. Let Your Waistline Be Defined
Got that beautiful waist lady? Or that cute tummy? Then choose to show it off! Opt for outfits that will leave that cute waistline out, or rather, fit on your waistline like second skin; and let it stand out to garner the attention for you! I would go for cute tops that define the waist: halter tops, crop tops and bralette tops. Which of these two sets would you love?
Some ladies would go for flares for that girly vibe and yes, they work just fine.
5. Allure In Nudes, Lace or Metallic
If all the four options above don’t work for you, then fall in love with nudes, lace and metallic. Such will perfectly show off your cute body, and those curves especially. And by mentioning nudes, I mean, nude color shades for that elegant monochromatic look if not sheers and mesh.
And yes lovelies, we all know how feminine lace is, right? Then go for it!
Since 2017, metallic stormed the fashion world and is still here to stay. Opt for golden looks or silvery looks for your date night and be ready to turn heads. Wearing the perfect metallic accent that adorns your shape will make it impossible for anyone to ignore giving you credit!
Well ladies, I’m certain that if you pick out on any of the tips and dress yourself perfectly, you’ll be the lady of the night. But remember, KNOW WHAT TO BARE AND WHAT NOT TO; AND NOW YOU KNOW HOW TO!
And for the basics, remember to let accessories also talk for you. Accessories are every girl’s best friend and they could really spice up your outfit instantly. I always advise ladies to love high-end accessories which obviously shimmer thus stand out and attract attention to the part where you have worn it.
As well, get perfect makeup and that perfect cologne for the night and be ready to turn heads; not just for being sexy and feminine but also being decent.
Always remember you have to be 100% comfortable, keep yourself healthy and confident. I mean, there is no way you can dress in a seductive way and let that chin down! You have to bear the confident aura by the time you walk away from your mirror. And that comes from having that good lifestyle.
Well lovelies, there you have it! Go out there and slay all night! Don’t forget to let me know your thoughts in the comment section below…
