The date-night outfit formula is a tough one to perfect on any day of the year, but the stakes are even higher come February 14. You want to appear confident, polished and alluring, all without trying too hard—which for many fashion lovers means avoiding highly of-the-moment gear for fear of repelling their romantic interest. The solution? Subtly sexy pieces that, while captivating, feel as easygoing as your favorite pair of jeans. Teamed with playful accessories and a feminine beauty look, they’re perfectly effortless and irresistible. Here, three ensembles that fit the bill.
Sexy But Subtle
A shoulder-baring top and lace-adorned trouser make head-to-toe black enticing. Punchy accessories and a bold lip garner extra interest.
A silky camisole and plush tuxedo jacket is a timeless duo made cool when paired with slim jeans. Satin heels, a single statement earring and soft fragrance make a demure statement.
A bustier-style jumpsuit draws attention to your shape with elegance. Eye-catching hoops, velvet pumps and an illuminizer ensure a radiant effect.
