Let’s admit it, ladies. Pants provide much coverage, and they are perfect! They are great for date nights, and when it is cold so don’t put them away when you’re looking for a perfect outfit.

But to make your look more interesting and feminine, wear your preferred pants then consider showing off just some skin. Whether you’re curvy to show off or not, this trick will ensure you make a statement!

The secret is to slightly show off a part of your upper body that you’re super confident about. It could be your decolletage, arms, shoulders, neck, back, or cleavage( since we love modesty, we prefer the latter for deeper romantic dates though!)

You want to ensure your skin is well moisturized, and you’ve used your best perfume. I’m currently loving the Tom Ford Rose Prick Perfume– it’s perfect for dates!

Also, accessorize this area with subtle accessories to draw the eye to this place. Think of a dainty necklace or a cute watch. An excellent way to highlight your decolletage is to give your neck area a hint of little shimmer and apply the highlighter on the exposed areas like collarbones and shoulder bones.

7. Wear Dressier Pants

If the idea of wearing pants on a date is starting to feel boring, a surefire way to up the ante is to throw something edgier into the mix.

Instead of basic pants, go for something dressier with a high waist like formal wide-leg pants, paper-bag waist pants, or flared pants. Flared jeans also work well and dress up your look with a statement-making blouse.

Start with a pair of white, black, grey, or blue jeans that is dressy and classy!

Now, find a shirt, top, or blouse that is more dressy than casual, ideally, in lace, chiffon, silk, knitted fabric, or similar for pairing with.

If you fancy a one-and-done date look, then a jumpsuit is the one piece that can make your outfit complete. Jumpsuits make it easy to dress nice and look stylish!

Opt for a more classic and elegant piece in a solid color and ensure it fits well. Don’t wear a jumpsuit that is too tight to make you feel uncomfortable or too loose to overwhelm your body.

When wearing your jumpsuit, keep your waist defined. Go for a jumpsuit that naturally defines your waist or cinch your jumpsuit at the waist to add some femininity to the look and give you that curvy look.

Wide leg jumpsuits are particularly flirty and date-perfect! Just remember to wear heels with skinny heels. Avoid wedged, clogs and heels with chunky soles for a chic finish.
