valentine mashup: sultry vs demure
LIKE THE LOOKS ABOVE? CLICK ON ANY ITEM TO VIEW/PURCHASE!!
so...valentines day is coming up, and you know that whatever you wear, you MUST look hawt.. but what, oh what to wear? well, here are two looks: sultry vs demure: one, boldly sexy and the other, coyly flirtatious.
let's look at sultry look (left). the word sultry is defined as emitting great heat, and this look is definitely sizzling...i know.. i can hear you saying, that's not sexy...it's all covered! there's no cleavage! sure, you can wear a tight dress with a plunging neckline to you know where, but thats so overdone, and uninteresting, and a bit cheesy. and you'll look like every other woman trying to be hot. it takes a real diva to make this simple dress simmer! its well-cut so it hugs and shows off all your curves and the mid thigh length and boat-neck highlight the best parts of your shoulders and legs. pair it with bold jewellery and some fierce pumps to amp it up. add vixen red lips (like MAC Red) he'll be picking his mouth off the floor (or hers.. whichever)..
but if you're not the "in-your-face-sexy" type, then perhaps the demure look is for you.. this look is for the diva who doesn't need to shout that she's sexy. for the girl who flashes that coy smile and is on her way. the colour bands and cut of this sheath dress highlight your fantastic shape without being overtly sexy. be sure to rock it with a pair of statement heels, like the feathered model above to pull it together. add light, flirty make-up, with two coats of mascara for those "come-hither" eyes and no one will ever believe that you're shy!
stay tuned for the make-up "tutorial" for these looks.
