It's the prime time of year for romance and with that comes the desire to feel your best (read: sexiest). Channel your inner vixen with the help of Chanel Iman, whom we quickly caught up with at Mad Over You Tees' DreamYard poetry slam last week. You can count on the model—literally a professional at looking good in lingerie thanks to three years as a Victoria's Secret Angel—for advice on bringing out your allure come Valentine's Day—or any date night. Read on for our Q&A. 

What is your ideal outfit for a date?
"Well, on the first date just keep it simple—all black. Then, add something like a nice coat or a nice bag to prompt your guy to give you a compliment. On any date it is best to keep it simple and just have one really special item."

Chanel makes a case for the all-black ensemble both dressed up and casual. You can get her exact tee ($78) on the right here.

What do you wear when you want to feel sexy?
"That fragrance!"

What is a gift you'd love to get for Valentine's Day?
