DearSugar and I had a recent conversation about what one should wear for a nerve-inducing evening spent going out to dinner with an ex. I experienced this last Fall and I did obsess over what to wear.
Here is a wardrobe Catch 22: you don't want to look too sexy because you don't want to give off the wrong vibe; you don't want to look like crap because you want him to know what he's missing! So let's say the situation is that this is a friendly dinner with the ex - no hidden agenda here - so you want to look great, but not overly sexy.
I'll start you off with some armor: this Theory Belted Trench, $495. A trench is classic, and this one in particular is modest - but not at all frumpy! Let's go Fab Finding for a not-too-sexy but attractive dinner with the ex outfit. If you're going to find a dress or skirt - make sure it's not too short! Be sure to come back and tell me your Fab Finds are up, or just tag your Fab Finds with dinner with ex.
