Mayumi’s Fashion Advice: How to look hot on Valentine’s day
Being single on Valentines does not mean you cannot enjoy the day. You can still experience the thrill and romance of a Valentine’s date by going to social gatherings and meeting other people. Who knows, something beautiful might blossom after that! I am no relationship guru so I cannot advise what you should say or do to find a potential date or partner, but I know fashion. Hence, here are some style tips on how to look sexier, sultrier and even more attractive to men.
Show some skin
A writer once performed a case study to understand which kind of clothing appealed to men the most. The writer asked a group of male volunteers to look at several photos of women. He asked them to select the women they found most attractive based solely on what they were wearing. Results indicated that the men preferred the models wearing an eyelet blouse, an off shoulder top, and a lace stretch blouse simply because these items revealed the right amount of skin.
If you want to catch the attention of the opposite sex, wear pieces that show off your soft skin while highlighting your assets and curves. Remember to get pieces that cinch your waist or a belt that wraps around it. Pair dresses and blouses with a nice pair of jeans, black trousers, or body hugging skirts.
Here are some ideas to inspire you.
Try Asos’ off shoulder sequined blouse or Monique Lhuillier black corset dress as worn here by Nina Dobrev
Elie Tahari’s black lace overlay on a nude fabric dress, or Chloe’s white A-line eyelet skirt
Studies have shown that men find women in red clothing to be more desirable. Men are more likely to ask intimate questions if the woman is wearing red. This works to our advantage ladies so make sure to wear something red on V-day!
Try Victoria’s Secret new day-to-night cap sleeve pont dress or Carmen Marc Valvo’s haute couture ensemble
Men do not care about your shoes. They are only attracted to how you look in them! This is because heels elongate our legs, straightens our postures, and yes, push our buttocks out when we stand. In fact, they dislike complicated and tacky footwear (i.e. strappy shoes) so opt for heels that are simple yet elegant – and of course comfortable to wear.

Also from the collection are the multicolor Diptic ankle-strap booties and red V-Neck t-strap pumps.
Men actually associate fragrances with sexual desire so why not finish your look with a sweet fragrance. It has been proven that the smell of vanilla, cinnamon and lavender appeals to most men. Just do not overdo it. You do not want to overwhelm him with your scent. Spray a hint of perfume on your pulse points such as your neck and wrists. Also spray it on the tips of your hair, as perfume tends to linger there the longest.
Try See by Chloe, a unique blend of bergamot, apple blossom, jasmine, sandalwood and vanilla; or La Maison de la Vanille’s Intense Patchouli, which feature lemon and Lavender blossom aromas, with notes of white musk, sandalwood and vanilla.
Hope you all have a great V-day!
Until next time!
