Chocolates, roses, teddies, candles – Valentine Day is sugar coated with charm and love. But when it comes to fashion, this ‘day of love’ outfit can easily overkill. You want to dress up for the special day but at the same time; you don’t want to appear over excited or having tried too hard. So we decided to make things a little easier and fun. Whether you plan to go on a romantic date, have fun with friends or plan on breaking hearts, our V-day outfit tips will make sure you do it in style!
1. The Romantic coffee date outfit
Florals are dreamy and ultra feminine, ideal for a flirty daytime date. But we say, don’t overdo the peaches and florals, the coy damsel in distress look is passé. Mix them with casual and classy denim or chambray shirts. This way your hunky date knows you’re up to join him in his video game session or watch an exciting football game. Pretty and fun, charming is your forte.
2. The Heartbreaker Outfit
Single ladies, it’s time to dress to kill! What is Valentine’s Day without giving your attire a splash of red? The conventional solid red look can be such a bore and not to mention, cheezy. Let’s go the classy route with all time favourite tartan skirts. Vintage and always in vogue, don’t you just love tartans?
Pair the skirt with 2016’s hot trend, shoulder cutouts. The slight peek-a-boo is a tease, flirty yet demure. A pair of ankle boots complete the heartbreaker outfit. Psst! Don’t break too many hearts.
3. The Blind Date outfit
The first dates are so exciting but unpredictable. It could either leave butterflies in your stomach or you might just want to ‘run away’! That’s why it is always a good idea not to be look too dressy or too casual.
A pretty ruffled top willl get you in the mood for a dreamy date. Aren’t ruffles just so romantic and feminine? Mix them with your favourite pair of flared denims or boyfriend jeans. That way, you are prepared to head out for a funtime shopping spree with friends just in case your date ends up disappointing you. As for shoes, you can never go wrong with a pair of pointed heels in bold colors. The finishing touch, a playful clutch bag.
