I shot photos for this look early on Sunday morning. I got some strange looks on the street by those passing by, and I'm pretty sure some of them thought I was doing the walk of shame in my outfit from Saturday night. When I do go out to bars on the weekends, I usually like to keep it casual, but every now and then I like to get a little more dressed up, and maybe show a little skin. Below are some tips for dressing a little provocatively, but still keeping it classy.
Tights are the easiest way to add more coverage to a nighttime look.
•wear flats or boots
The shoes you wear can easily tone down a look. Opt for a flat shoe or a causal bootie over heels.
•pay attention to proportions
This dress has good proportions, even though the stomach is cut out, the skirt of the dress flares out and the bodice has good coverage, so I'm not showing too much skin. A rule of thumb I follow is that a dress can be short and loose fitting, or longer and form fitting, but never short and tight.
•don't go crazy with hair and makeup
Keep your makeup casual. You can't tell because I have sunglasses on in these photos, but my eye make up is just a simple cat eye.
