I hope you all are as excited about Valentine’s Day as I am. I know that a lot of people find it cheesy and slightly silly, but I think it’s founded on a beautiful notion; the celebration of love. So, each year, I make sure to plan ahead and enjoy the day in style. When I say “in style”, I basically mean that the OOTD is carefully put together (sometimes post an unplanned shopping spree) and is an important part of my V-Day prep. If you’ve still not decided what to do and/or wear on the 14th of Feb this year, here are my recommendations on what you can do.
Casually Chic for a Day Outing
If you’re not going the typical route with fancy lunches or dinner but a simple day outing instead, wearing some casual classics would be great. Team a pair of well-fitted jeans with a white shirt and maybe even a cap or hat. Don on your sunglasses, black heels or brogues (depending on where you’re going) and complete the look with a statement necklace or scarf. This ensemble will have you looking effortlessly stylish and ready for your outing.
Romantic, Girly for a Special Lunch or Movie Date
Lovely lunches and movie dates are pretty special – you’ll probably remember the day for years to come. So, dress to impress in a flowy, chiffon one-piece, be it a dress or a jumpsuit. Accessorize with red pumps or matching heels, a delicate neckpiece and maybe even some bangles. Amp up your feminine charm with a curly hair-do, manicured nails and dewy-finish makeup. You’ll look fabulously fashionable and all set for some sweet romance.
Formal for a Dinner Date
If you’re going out for dinner on Valentine’s Day, you have to bring your A game and wow your audience. Wear a formal dress with a bold silhouette such as a bodycon number or straight-cut one. Pair it with a statement jacket and sky-high heels. Wear some necklaces and bracelets, leaving the hair straight so as to accentuate the outfit and accessories. With such a striking, high couture ensemble, you’ll certainly be getting oodles of attention from your date and others.
So what do you think? What’s it going to be, this Valentine’s Day?
