How do you rekindle the fire in your relationship when you feel like it’s been a while since you felt excited about each other? A lot of people worry that their relationship has grown stale when they don’t feel that spark anymore and are worried their relationship will never be the same again. But it doesn’t have to be that way! Here are some tips for reigniting the romance in your relationship and feeling that excitement again.
Fashion is one of those things that most people associate with their unique identities. So it can be tough to think of fashion as a tool for your relationship. Yet, fashion can breed social connections by becoming a form of visual communication. It can convey visual information about who you are and help connect with your significant other on a new level. There is a form of freedom and playfulness in fashion that can inject some excitement into a relationship that is tested by a dull routine.
Choose Each Other’s Outfits
As a married couple, making time for each other is instrumental to maintaining your relationship. But when routine gets in the way, finding something to talk about can be tough. Besides, you’ve probably gotten into a pattern of your spouse choosing their own outfits for work and for other occasions. It might feel like it’s been a long time since you had any say in what they wear, and this can lead to feeling disconnected from each other. Choosing each other’s outfits is a way of making time for each other, so start with small things like picking out their outfit for tomorrow. Even if it’s just matching colors or patterns or finding an item that they typically don’t wear but would look good on them, this will make them feel happy and cared about (and maybe even more inclined to return the favor!).
Get Some New Underwear
A great way to inject some fun and spontaneity into your relationship is with new underwear. Take turns picking out each other’s underwear, or buy women’s underwear your spouse would not expect you to wear. New underwear for yourself can be a cute way to surprise your partner when they get home from work. Aside from the element of sexiness and the confidence you exult, it also conveys a positive message. Buying underwear that you want to wear only with and for them reminds them that the relationship is all about cultivating togetherness.
Plan a Romantic Weekend Trip
When was the last time you both planned a romantic weekend together? Make it go a little further by dressing the part. In order to feel that romantic excitement, you need to do more than just put on an outfit. Pick clothes that make you feel special, and think about what would make you feel sexy. Your clothes also reflect how you view your special time together. Perhaps, it’s worth splurging on a new dress or a cute blouse to feel pretty for your spouse. Remember, what you wear sends a visual message. The best way to turn a restaurant date into a romantic evening is to dress for romance.
Fashion can be a fun tool to rekindle and explore new aspects of your relationship. Of course, fashion itself can’t save a relationship that is doomed to fail. But it can keep the burden of routine at bay between two people who already love each other.
