Guest Post by Miami-based celebrity stylist Gen Bell
Valentine’s Day is the day to show off your sexy side, remind your loved one what you are rocking beneath your sweats, or catch the eye of a new admirer. For some, personal style comes easy – but not everyone is born a natural fashionista. For those lovely ladies who may need a little help, I offer these tips to impress your loved one or snag a new boyfriend.
My best dressed tips for Valentine’s Day:
1) Make sure all your pieces fit your body type well. The right fit creates the best silhouette. (Intimate Guide note: This starts from the bottom up – with no visible panty line and a properly fitting bra with the right cut for your outfit.)
2) Everyone wears red on Valentine’s Day. Avoid this cliché color to keep from blending with the crowd. Instead, a little black dress paired with red accents can go a long way.
3) If you must wear red… save it for your lingerie.
4) Dress appropriately for the date activity. If you are going on a casual date such as bowling, put on your best fitting jeans with a sexy top. If you are going on a romantic date, heels are a must – whether high heeled boots or stilettos, heels elongate your legs.
5) Pair your outfit with a fun trend such as an iridescent clutch, belt or shoes. Or rock a full floral skirt with a form fitting top.
6) Don’t reveal too much. The best way to lure interest is to leave a little to the imagination.
7) Be confident in whatever you wear. Confidence is your sexiest asset!
