How to impress him

Whether you've been with your man for 20 years, or are meeting him for the first time, these date night looks will be sure to stop your guy dead in his tracks.

First date...

Since you're meeting this man for the first time, you'll want to appear hot but not slutty. You don't want to give him the wrong impression, do you? Opt for your most flattering LBD. We suggest a sleeveless option to show just the right amount of skin. And bring a colorful cardigan with you — just in case it gets chilly in the restaurant.

How to impress him

Get the look: Premier And Dear Dress (ModCloth, $158), Gianvito Rossi Silk-Satin Sandals (Net-A-Porter, $138), Gold-Tone Wire Hoop Earrings (Guess, $20), Gwen Pyramid Clutch (BCBG, $89)

A few dates in — still fresh...

It's still new, so looking your absolute best is key. He won't be able to take his eyes off of you if you rock a flirty dress with sexy stilettos and a sultry smoky eye.

How to impress him

Get the look: Duchess Satin Bow Back Dress (Topshop, $150), Sam Edelman Opal d'Orsay Pumps (Shopbop, $100), Embossed Clutch (Akira, $29) 

We'll be having the "this is exclusive" conversation soon...

By now, you're probably comfortable enough to go a little more casual, so you don't look like you're always trying so hard. A pair of dark skinny jeans paired with a flowy blouse and a cool leather bomber will show him you're cool and laid back, but still care about the relationship with a put-together look.

How to impress him

Get the look: Acne Studios Skin Overdye Jeans (La Garconne, $250), Slim Signature White Dot Print (Equipment, $248), Combi Leather Bomber (Mango, $60), Jessica Simpson Renonna Lovie Back Leopard Flats (Zappos, $79)

Long-term, exclusive relationship, but not married...

You've been together for years, so he totally gets your style — and probably thinks you're sexiest when you're comfortable. Looking for something that's comfy, yet still adorable? Try colored denim, a classic white tee and a denim jacket. So cute!

Married and totally committed...

Show your husband you've still got it with a sexy red dress, fierce black pumps and a bold lip. He'll remember why he married you.
