The most romantic holiday of the year is here, and 2020 is giving us all a whole weekend to celebrate Valentine’s Day! And with a little help from ‘& Other Stories’ and the colour red we have put together some outfit ideas for a romantic rendezvous with your partner or a first date.
Outfit 1: The Boss Babe
Choosing an outfit for an after-work Valentine’s date can seem a little daunting. Why not opt for this cute, red full sleeves, button-down jumper, paired with ankle-length cut-off denim pants? The gold-heart button details make this rather appropriate for the occasion of Valentine’s, and is not too flashy when on official meetings. Add on a pair of blue flats and a necklace and this ensemble will make an easy yet stylish statement for a pub-night with your beau or an evening with your Galentines.
Outfit 2: So Sweet
Have a fancy date at a luxury restaurant? Ditch your standard LBD and get with the red theme of St. Valentine’s with the Jacquard Puff Sleeve Midi Slit Dress. The length of the dress gives an elegant and tall shape to one’s silhouette, and the gathered sleeves add detail to the design. Clasp on a pair of strappy heel sandals in a metallic finish for a bit more festivity and glimmer, and an elegant bag to match. This one is sure to make heads turn!
Outfit 3: The Modern Retro
This Relaxed Heart Motif Dotted Sweater is a cosy knitted piece with puffed sleeves and polka-dot and heart details in a contrasting bright white against the Valentine Red backdrop. You could pair it with anything you like, such as jeans, or a black skirt like I have done here. I decided to make this sweater’s true partner the patent white boots instead – a nod to the cooler retro American diner era. Add a colourful handbag and you’re all ready for a Sunday brunch date and then to snuggle up watching your favourite rom-com!
But do not feel obligated to conform to the Valentine Red from the colour palette. Play with textures and patterns with co-ords like this tailored hight waisted tweed mini skirt and jacket. For a more sensational look, you could also opt for a jumpsuit like the black belted puff sleeve romper for a night about town. The options are endless!
Our recommendation for your best companions on your date is confidence and a pretty smile.
