We tend to put our best foot — and our best outfit — forward when we're crafting a look to impress our dates. Why not apply the logic to everything you put on this month, at least after hours?
In honor of Valentine's Day , we're vowing to make February our sexiest month ever  — whether we're dressing for date night or girls' night — and we're borrowing from this crop of style setters to make it happen.
If your date is a sexier affair, bring out the big guns in the form of a slinky dress and over-the-knee boots a la Victoria's Secret Angel Alessandra Ambrosio.
Charm the socks off your date with a polished-cum-sexy pairing. Follow Alexa Chung's lead, and top your LWD with a menswear-style overcoat.
This girl knows her way around a sexy style — but Allison Williams's nude-hued leather sheath and ankle-strap heels make for a look that would work perfectly for a dinner date.
Channel Valentine's Day's pretty hues with a sweet pink minidress like Anne Hathaway .
Not a girlie girl? Not a problem. Just follow style setter Ashley Madekwe's example and outfit a look that's as cool as it is sexy with a miniskirt and denim shirt.
What's more chic than Kate Bosworth 's easy Winter white and metallics? Think it's not sexy enough for a date? A mini-hemline reveals just enough leg.
One part sophisticate, but all sex appeal — Brooklyn Decker's cropped top and pencil skirt  make the perfect dressed-up dinner look.
Going all out? Channel Camila Alves in a body-conscious sheath with a bold, look-at-me color.

If you're looking for the bombshell effect, look no further than a bustier-style dress like Emmy Rossum's.
Gwyneth Paltrow  strikes the right balance between ladylike and modern in a colorblock sheath; just add a leather jacket for a more 'laxed vibe.
Even if your plans don't require a cocktail dress, ditch the denim in favor of a casual dress and a cool-girl leather jacket like Hilary Rhoda.
You and your date will probably both love the sex appeal of leather pants and a sleek white blazer like Jamie Chung's on-trend ensemble.
Any reason is a good reason to dress up — use date night as an excuse to borrow from the ultrachic Jessica Alba  and try out a crop top and a high-waisted skirt.
Don't rule out a classic like the LBD. If you look for ones with special details, like Jennifer Lopez 's sheer-topped sheath, the look is doubly sexy.
Ladylike doesn't have to be covered up — just look at Kate Mara's pretty crop top and skirt set. Follow her lead for a no-fail, feminine look.

We'd slip into Margot Robbie's sexy lace-sleeved jumpsuit for a big night out.
Don't shy away from a bodycon dress like Taylor Swift 's — they can be a date-night secret weapon.
