What To Wear If You Think He's Going To Propose (Don't Phone This One In)

‘Tis the season for gift-giving, over-eating and… wedding proposals. Engagement season kicks off on Christmas, so if you have a sneaking suspicion that he’s about to pop the question, make sure you’re ready. Your grandkids will see these photos after all – so you better look damn good. Luckily for you, we have a whole site dedicated to all things bridal:  BRIDEfinds. Here are a few tips editor (and newlywed) Justine had to share for prepping for the big night:

The Little Black Dress:

This James Perse Off-The-Shoulder Dress ($135) is a classic LBD with a modern twist. You’ll want something sophisticated enough so that his mom approves, but hot enough for your man to swoon.

Leg-Lengthening Pumps:

If your boy is having any doubt about getting hitched, seeing your mile long legs will make him forget all of his fears. Do so with these Pour La Victoire Irina Suede Pumps ($215) in either black or nude.

Perfectly Polished Fingers:

If you’re like me, you’ll text everyone in your phone book a photo of the ring that night, so you’ll want a well polished finger.  Make sure you’re chip-free  and photo-ready with a pretty pale pink like this Essie No Pre Nup ($8) or a fiery red like this Long Stem Roses by Essie ($8).

An All-Over Glow:

Once again, since you’re going to be snapping pics left and right – you and your hands can not be pale. But you don’t want a full-blown tan since it’s December, and he’ll have second thoughts about marrying Snooki. Get healthy glow with this St. Tropez Everyday Gradual Tan Mousse ($30).

The Ultimate Marriage Musk:

Make sure you mask the nervous sweat smell with a pretty, flirty perfume like Vera Wang Princess ($60). It’s never too early to get on board the Vera Wang train.
