Valentine’s Day has a way of sneaking up on us.
Most of us spend January recovering from the holidays, getting back to the daily grind, suddenly exercising more, eating healthy and burying ourselves in the January blues.
Hence, Valentine’s Day seems like a perfect excuse to let the hair down, make merry and celebrate love in every way possible.
However, dressing up for a special date night can seem more like a chore than celebration. To make things easier; we have come up with style inspirations for all age groups and budgets.
The bold jumpsuit
Jumpsuits are a great alternate to dresses and perfect if you like to take sartorial challenges. Make V-day special by donning a jumpsuit in a bold colour like red — the perfect colour to celebrate love. Add animal print boots, statement earrings and a quirky bag for a show-stopping effect.
The lovely midi
A midi dress with its elegant, sophisticated and lady like silhouette is the perfect date night dress that will see you gliding through the night like the queen you are.
Opt for a pleated one with a delicious print. Pleats are a great way to hide any sins while giving you a great shape. Prints, on the other hand, give a dollop of personality to any outfit. Pair it with statement earrings, mesh peep toes, a simple bracelet and a sparkly clutch to finish the look.
The exquisite maxi dress
A floor length maxi is generally left for festivals and the beach.
However if you opt for fabrics like lace, a maxi can be easily turned into brilliant evening wear. A black lace maxi is a wonderful date night option. Pair it with gold accessories like a chunky necklace, delicate earrings and bracelet and pumps. For a pop of colour, throw in a bold coloured clutch.
Dressing up, looking and feeling good should not be a luxury for just a few and in any case it’s worth remembering that any kind of love begins with a bit of self-love.
