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. 
















Bright Dress

A Bright Dress

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

(Photo: WWD, Steve Eichner)

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.

      In 2005, the nuclear attack submarine USS San Francisco suddenly stopped dead in its tracks. The ship's crew were thrown about, some over distances of 20 feet, and the majority of the 137-member crew suffered one injury or another—including one that would later prove fatal. Further inspection would explain what happened, and reveal that the submarine's bow looked like a crushed soda can. USS San Francisco had run into an undersea mountain. On that day, January 8, 2005, the San Francisco had been approximately 360 miles southeast of Guam, traveling at flank speed (more than 30 knots).

    • Wells fargo to abused customers: see you in arbitration

      Only in the la-la land of financial industry justice does stuff like this happen. After suing Wells Fargo & Co. for alleged fraud, invasion of privacy and other claims related to the bank's highly publicized unauthorized accounts scandal this autumn, a group of 80 customers who are seeking class status got this message late last month: We'll see you in arbitration. Like other banks, Wells demands that customers agree to give up their rights to sue in court when they open accounts. And like other banks, when customers flout that agreement and sue anyway, Wells files court papers demanding arbitration. Unlike other banks, though, Wells in this case is an operation that has been outed by the Consumer

      A special about the death of Cory Monteith aired Saturday night, and we now know the tragic details of what caused his death. Each day, 78 people in the United States overdose on opiates — substances like heroin — and die. New details revealed in a special on Reelz, Autopsy: The Last Hours of Cory Monteith, show that it was actually Cory's effort to get sober that ultimately led to his death, a sad reality that sheds light on the reality of having a substance use disorder — one we don't hear about everyday. An interview with Dr. Michael Hunter, a forensic pathologist, reveals Cory died after taking heroin and drinking alcohol shortly after he had gone to rehab in an effort to manage his substance use.

      Last Tango in Paris director Bernardo Bertolucci is speaking out amid the recent backlash over a controversial rape scene in the 1973 film. In a recently resurfaced interview at La Cinémathèque Française in 2013, the director admitted that he and Marlon Brando came up with the idea for using butter as a lubricant for the rape scene that day — but chose not to tell the actress, Maria Schneider, about that element before shooting it. The interview, which resurfaced online this weekend, sparked outraged, with celebrities like Jessica Chastain expressing disgust that the scene was sprung on the 19-year-old actress without her consent. “I feel sick,” the actress tweeted.

    • Get ready for a limited NES Classic Edition sale tomorrow morning

      It's basically impossible to find a NES Classic Edition for $60 right now, unless you or someone you've recently bribed works in inventory management at Target. Walmart, Best Buy and anyone else you'd think of as selling the games console are out of stock online, and the limited stock that trickles into physical retails stores is being gobbled up before they even make it to the shelves. But at the eleventh hour before Christmas, one highly unlikely retailer might save your day/holiday gifting plans: Urban Outfitters. DON'T MISS:  Galaxy Note 7 fires were caused by over-ambitious design, engineers find The store known for selling painfully hipster record players and "ironic" Polaroids will have a limited-stock, online-only sale of the NES Classic Edition starting tomorrow morning. We don't yet have a precise time, but Urban Outfitters told  BGR  it will be sometime Tuesday AM. If I were a guessing man, I'd say the likeliest times would be 12:01AM, and something like 7, 8 or 9AM in the morning, just as physical stores open/the IT guy clicks "go" in an office somewhere. In the absence of perfect information, I'd recommend using a service like Visualping  to keep an eye on Urban Outfitter's tech page , so that when the site gets updated with a new product, you'll get pinged with an email. The good thing about this Urban Outfitter sale is that unlike the stock releases from Walmart and Target, not too many people seem to know about it. Add that to the uncertain release timing, and this could be your best chance to get a console before Christmas. Years of experience with buying concert tickets has taught me the best strategies for making sure you get your hands on a console. Make sure you set up an account beforehand and that you're logged in, to speed through checkout. You'll also want to have more than one computer on hand, so you can keep hitting refresh on multiple devices to get the best chance. If possible, rope a couple friends into the plan; bribe with the promise of Super Mario parties where necessary.
