LUXE FILE CHICAGO: CUPID CATCHER: Chicago Pros Share Easy Ways To Tip The Romance Scale This Valentine's Day (Part 2 of 3)

2013’s sexiest holiday is days away and it’s that one little question that has us stumped: What to wear? Sweet and sexy. That’s what we told Evolve founder, Jessi Sheehan, how we wanted to dress on Valentine’s Day. Just her cup of sin. Here, her fashion secrets and two head-to-toe looks for a very beguiling night in or out.

Open up. Resist wearing anything that restricts a man from seeing your real beauty. Skip the Spanx, bright lipstick or hair extensions. Embrace the color red. Why? Because men think women look sexier in red than any other color.

Be creative. Do something out of the norm. If you regularly go out to dinner, stay in and cook his favorite meal or vice versa. Keep him on his toes (and yours!) by changing your outfit between each course.

Bling it on. Wear something that reminds you of your lover. If it was a gift from him, don’t wait for a special occasion. Wearing a token of his affection is romantic and will pull at his heart strings.

Midday Fix: Fashion tips for New Year’s Eve

-Get away from the boring Little Black Dress, and your go-to sequins.  There are other ways to sparkle and shine on NYE.

-A patterned dress is perfect for a less fancy party, perhaps dinner with friends or a gathering at home.  The fabric and pattern give the dress an overall chic and sophisticated look without over-doing it.

-If you must wear black, go for black skinny textured pants and a bright red blouse.  Pick a blouse with details such as leather accents and cut-outs that make it appealing to the eye and dress it up with a tassel necklace and bracelet.

-Winter white is the perfect neutral and a great canvas to accessorize.  A detailed neckline draws attention right up to the face and is great when paired with a red lip.

-Color Blocking is not only popular in the spring/summer.  Wearing color brightens the skin, so let the dress pop and speak for itself while going more neutral with the shoes and accessories.
