Even if it’s not your usual go-to, it’s fun to try a romantic style, even if it’s just for date night.

“Romantic style” means different things to different people but I say it’s anything feminine, sexy and/or girlie that says, “I know how to be romantic.” It’s not all white lace and hearts.

I’m participating in The Husband Project via Proverbs 31 Ministries as an online Bible study for the next month.

Project #7 is “Looking good for your man.”

I’m all about women looking good for themselves…but we all know that men appreciate when we make an effort to dress up a bit. I encourage you to ASK the man in your life what he likes but here are some ideas for romantic style that should make you both happy.

If you’re interested, here’s a description of The Husband Project:

Do you feel like your marriage has gone from “I do” to “What did I do?” Recapture the romance that made you and your husband fall in love in the first place. The Husband Project provides 21 days of fun activities to show love and honor to your husband.  Kathi Lipp will help you discover:

  • Proven ways to return fun and flirting to your marriage.
  • Inner assurance to meet your husband’s unspoken emotional needs.
  • Increased confidence when it comes to meeting your husband’s sexual needs.
  • New levels of warmth and tenderness in your relationship.
  • A deeper sense of security with your husband.
  • A greater ability to boost your husband’s belief in himself.

 Romantic and feminine details

What makes a woman a woman is often in the details.

Men are intrigued by buttons, lace, bows, zippers and ties. Y’know…the stuff men don’t wear.

I have a whole Pinterest board of feminine details here.

Romantic colors

This one is up to interpretation but a go-to for a romantic style is shades of pink.

Pink is flattering on all skin tones and make most women look more vibrant and youthful.

Try something different

Kathi suggests it in the book and I agree. If you’re usually quiet and reserved, try animal print or red (or both together).

If you’re typically the bold type, try something demure and sweet. Mix it up a little.

Accentuate your best features

Showing a little skin is always romantic.

“Cold shoulder” tops are in style right now. SASSY! 

Or show off those curvaceous legs.

Every woman, no matter your body type, can wear skinny jeans (or leggings or “jeggings”). Just be sure to cover your assets. Do I even have to tell you that men like tight pants? 

Use some paint

Lipstick and nail polish are romantic. Red or pink are classic colors but maybe paint your nails in your man’s favorite color.

Or try something wild like bright yellow or midnight blue.

This is a sexy look sure to catch his eye! 

Experiment with makeup

Romantic can be the dramatic smokey eye or cat eye look

or a softer “peaches and cream” look.

Sexy shoes

What you wear on your feet can influence your attitude AND the way you walk. Try lace-up sandals.

A kitten heel is cute without compromising your safety.

As you can see, romantic style is in the details.

I hope these ideas for embracing your romantic style inspire you! Which ones are your favorites?
