What to Wear for Valentine’s Day
This is always one of those big questions – what do we wear for Valentine’s Day? And will it be a date during the day or will it be a date night? or both? Do you need two outfits or can you just go day-to-night with a few small changes/updates to your outfit!
Here are 4 things that I like to think about when working on my Valentine’s outfit…
1. Make it Red
Red is always a great colour to go with because it is really representative of V-day! I’m not actually sure where the tradition to wear red actually came from – I mean we know that red is the common colour used in hearts – but definitely something to look into! What I have learned during my research is that courage, warmth and strength are all things that seem to be tied to the colour ‘red’ – it’s also a ‘sexy’ colour – so why not spice things up on date night! 😉
These days – you can even mix pink and red – it is totally acceptable! Well – you guys also know me – I say you can pretty much mix pink with anything – at least that is what I like to think – can you guess why?
2. Think of the Venue & Dress Code
The venue is the next thing I like to think about – what is the venue like? If it is a surprise location – go with something that is ‘safe’ but still ‘sexy’. I always find jumpers to be one of those sexy but safe outfits – if the jumper is cinched at your waist, but has a bit of room and flow in it – you feel a bit more free to ‘enjoy your meal’ as well! Another option would be to sport a nice fitted skirt with a silk blouse – this always keeps things sexy, but still a little mysterious!
3. Pick something that is Flattering
Next is to find something that highlights some of your best assets 😉 Pick something that you would like to focus on – waist – bust – legs 😉 It’s always nice to highlight one thing – and let the sexiness play out in the outfit! Check out our previous post to see what body type you are!
4. Pick the right accessories
Last but not least, pick a purse that holds what you need, but not more than you need! You want something that is versatile and chic, but also fits your basic needs – for girls – that means – lipstick, mirror, wallet, sunglasses, extra pair of shoes etc. lol – but in all seriousness – something that isn’t going to weigh down your shoulder, but that still goes with your outfit!
