Gigi says, “I will be seeing my boyfriend for the first time in months after his tour overseas. We will be spending a weekend in NYC, complete with fancy dinners and nights out. What should I wear to impress my man after not seeing him for months? He likes it when I dress “sexy” (whatever that means lol). This will be early November, so looks that I can wear with tights or pants would be great. Thank you, and I hope this gets answered!”
How exciting, Gigi! I’m happy for you. In my opinion, nothing says ‘sexy’ more than a little red dress with a pair of thigh high boots. He’ll have lots of fun trying to figure out how to get you out of both:
The Giambattista Valli option is super expensive, but no worries! You can get red dresses at any price point (my suggestion would be to go to ASOS):
For nighttime, I’m going to admit a slight bias and say I am currently in LOVE with Helmut Lang’s asymmetrical dresses for the fall. The jersey fabric is forgiving yet sultry, most come outfitted with a delightful decoletté neckline, and the pop of leg revealed by the slit is the definition of sexy. Pop one of those babies on with some chic stilettos and a warm jacket you’ll need his help taking off. Complete with red lips or whatever you know will wow him:
I know it looks simple, but I dare any of you to try one of Lang’s dresses on and not feel like a sexpot!
Get a few more Helmut Lang options here (psst, if they’re too pricey, Rent the Runway also carries a few HL items):
