Sophia Bush shows that your favorite striped tee can be evening-friendly when paired with a mini and a blazer. Pushed-up sleeves and a half-tucked shirt keep the look from being too stuffy.

Sexy Summer Leather

For those of you who want their fellas panting at first sight, a leather (or faux-leather) pencil skirt is the way to go. Wear it with an airy tank and sandals (the strappier, the better!) like Malin Akerman, so you don’t melt in the heat.
















Rock ‘n’ Roll Staples

Rock ‘n’ Roll Staples

For a casual date like bowling or karaoke, skinny jeans and a vintage concert or sports tee are cute and comfy. Add tousled hair like Rachel Roy for a little extra sex appeal.

For those days when you hate everything in your closet, look to Lauren Conrad’s no-fail outfit: curve-hugging little black dress and fun clutch with heels. Boom.


















Romantic Top

A floral lingerie-inspired shirt is sultry but not vulgar. Pair the racy top with stovepipe pants to really have him eating out of the palm of your hand.


















Printed Pants

Printed Pants

Think printed pants are only a girl-approved trend? Joan Smalls proves otherwise—show us a guy who wouldn’t be into that!


















Glam Crop Top

A Glam Crop Top

Give your cropped tank a dressed-up feel with a floaty maxiskirt or high-waisted pants. Wear it exactly like Diane Kruger is here—trust us, that minimal sliver of skin delivers maximum hotness.

















A Sweet Dress

That colorful sundress you love can go from day to night in two seconds flat if you throw on a jean jacket and Western-inspired booties. Jessica Alba knows what’s up!

















Colored Denim

Colored Denim

Keep the focus on your legs with perfectly fitted colored jeans. By wearing a simple tank and streamlined accessories—and some sky-high heels!—your legs are all but guaranteed to be the center of attention.

For a dressier date night, a cocktail dress in super-flattering shape and a color that complements your skin tone will ensure that both you and your guy know you’re a knockout—just look at Emma Stone!
















Classic Denim and Stripes

Classic Denim and Stripes

When you’re out with your guy, the last thing you want is to be fussing with your outfit the whole time. Stay comfortable with fitted (but not skintight) jeans, a striped tee, and shoes you can walk in.

















Easy Dress

An Easy Dress

On hot, hot, hot days, you want to keep the clothing to a minimum while still leaving something to the imagination! Zooey Deschanel demonstrates it in her fun, floaty dress. After the sun sets, simply wear your sunglasses like a headband to instantly up the cool factor.















Sheer Piece

Sheer Piece

A dress with strategic cutouts or illusion panels is the ideal way to show off some sex appeal. Stick with a simple silhouette and a solid color like Karlie Kloss’ little number. This risky look can be seriously rewarding.
















Miniskirt

Miniskirt

To show off your gorgeous legs, play with proportion and choose a cute miniskirt, tucked-in tank, and shrunken blazer. Selena Gomez added some sparkle and booties for a look that would fit right in anywhere, from a beer garden to a concert.
















Dressy Shorts

Dressy Shorts

A loose top and shorts are your daytime go-to, so why not remix them for evening? Upgrade to a tailored blazer, trouser shorts, and wedges like Christina Ricci for an ensemble that’s as sophisticated as it is fun.
















V-Neck Dress

V-Neck Dress

We hate to break it to you, but you’ve been ignoring one very sexy body part: your collarbone! Show your clavicle some love with a wide V-neckine—and skip the necklace this time. Jordin Sparks gets the idea totally right here: Between that and her flawlessly cinched waist, she’s va-va-voom perfection.














Little White Dress

A LWD

The best way to show off a killer (faux) tan? Bright white! A little white dress is unexpected for nighttime and makes a great canvas for pretty accessories. Follow Emma Watson's lead for an ultra-femme look.
















Monochrome Separates

Monochrome Separates

Don’t be afraid to wear all one color! As Jennifer Lopez proves here, wearing the same shade on top and bottom can be drop-dead gorgeous, especially if it’s a skin-matching neutral. Your shoes can go either way: Match them to the rest of the outfit or pick a completely different hue for a twist..














Bold Print Dress

Bold Print Dress

Dudes aren’t afraid of patterned clothes! A fun frock—like Rachel Bilson's—is attention-getting and shows that you like to have a good time. Still afraid it’s too much for him? Tame the print with a cropped black blazer and matching sandals.
















Your Favorite Piece

Your Favorite Piece

If you normally dress funky, don’t hide that from your guy! A cool, quirky dress like Solange Knowles’ shouldn’t be relegated to the closet just because you’re on a date—in fact, you can amp it up even further with statement accessories.

Daring to wear something unique lets your true style—and personality—shine through.

    • Fake doc gets prison for deadly butt injections

Oneal Ron Morris, 36, who is transgender, was sentenced to 10 years Monday in Florida’s Broward County court after pleading guilty to manslaughter and injecting several women with the toxic mixture, according to CBS Miami. Shatarka Nuby, 31, died after receiving as many as 10 injections from Morris between 2007 and 2010. She paid Morris as much as $2,000 for the deadly procedures, the Sun-Sentinel reported. “There’s no closure. Putting [Morris] in jail won’t bring her back,” said Nuby’s aunt Juanita in court.

      "Not only for what millions was telling me but because my family and my husband were suffering the same fate from the internet because of my mistake," she wrote in a statement released on Twitter on Monday night. Paige, a two-time Divas champion who has been sidelined following neck surgery, acknowledged last week that "personal and private photos of mine were stolen" and shared without her consent. In Monday night's tweet, she spoke about the harm and the hurt the incident brought. "The one thing that was the hardest was thinking 'my husband is going to leave me' 'my family will disown me' but I'm blessed beyond words to have a family and a husband that stuck by me because they know who I am," she wrote.

    • Mom Shares Terrifying Story About Alleged Encounter With Human Traffickers at IKEA

      Diandra Toyos was wandering around an IKEA, testing out couches, with her mom and three children when she got the distinct feeling that something wasn't right. "After a few minutes, I noticed a well-dressed, middle aged man circling the area, getting closer to me and the kids," she wrote on Facebook. "My mom noticed as well and mentioned that we need to keep an eye on him." Toyos had her 7-week-old son strapped to her front and kept her other children, ages 4 and 1, within close range. She claims the man continued to circle their area, occasionally picking things up — his eyes always returned to her and her family. When they moved, he moved. "At one point he came right up to me and the boys,

    • Fake Florida doctor who ‘enhanced’ buttocks with cement, caulking gets 10 years for manslaughter

      From a Florida prison in November 2011, Shatarka Nuby penned a letter to the state’s health department about her cosmetically enhanced buttocks. Her rear end had hardened and turned black, she wrote. Side effects from the years-old injections left the mother of three feeling sick. And she claimed her surgeon — Oneal Ron Morris — was the same faux cosmetic doctor that police had arrested and accused of pumping a near-lethal formula of cement, mineral oil, bathroom caulking and Fix-a-Flat tire sealant into other women’s bodies. Her patients called her “Duchess.” Officials began investigating and interviewed Nuby. But four months later, she was dead. The official cause of death was respiratory failure

Oklahoma law presumes homeowners have a fear that justifies use of defensive force just by virtue of someone breaking into a home. A decision on charges for the shooter as well as formal charges for the alleged getaway driver, would be determined in the coming days, prosecutors said.

    • NASA just captured a photo of Jupiter that you won’t believe is real

      NASA has managed to capture some pretty stunning photos of all the cool stuff they've spotted over the years, and rarely does it fail to amaze. There's images of planet surfaces, the rings of Saturn, and even black holes flying through space totally unchecked . Rarely, however, does a photo look so unreal that at first glance you'd be likely to mistake it for a work of Earthling art. A new photo captured by NASA's Juno spacecraft falls into that category, and oh what a sight it is. The image, originally taken by Juno's "JunoCam" camera, was taken in early February and shows Jupiter's ever-swirling mass of storm clouds from an altitude of roughly 9,000 miles. The storms which continually rock the planet take on a milky appearance when captured up close, and a citizen scientist named Roman Tkachenko took the liberty of enhancing the photo's colors to bring out even more of the defining lines and edges. The Juno craft, packed with all kinds of fancy monitoring equipment, made its fifth flyby of the planet on Monday, which is also the fourth "science orbit," which is the name they give the flybys when all the instruments on board are up and running. The craft's next flyby won't happen until late May 2017, so it's a rare and exciting event when one of these close passes goes by without a hitch. The craft's data is currently being sent to Earth where researchers will continue to mine it for precious information about our solar system's most intimidating planet.
