Dressing up is an easy way to make a romantic night feel even more special. Now, there's no need to splurge on tuxedo rental or break the bank on a new evening gown -- though if you're looking for an excuse, don't let us stop you! But if your regular garb includes sweatpants or torn jeans, a nice pair of khakis or that skirt that's been hanging in the back of your closet is the way to go. Break out those earrings that you save for special occasions, even if this occasion finds you having a romantic night at home. And sure, beauty is in the eye of the beholder and your loved one probably cares for you no matter what you look like, but making an effort to look nice is a sweet sign of respect for your beloved whether it's the first date or the 91st.
