Your Valentine’s Day Style Guide

Your Valentine’s Day Style Guide

February is approaching and every lovebird out there is anticipating Spring’s most awaited celebration — Valentine’s Day. Both men and women around the world are planning surprises for their loved ones. For those already prepping how and what to wear, this guide’s for you. Let’s get inspired and let your Valentine’s mood lead the way.

Florals. Think Chinoiserie, embroidery, prints and embellishments. Romance begins with the ethereal and nature’s best gift — flowers boast the most fleeting air even in fashion. Not to be mistaken though, florals aren’t girly. So even men can portray their best Valentine’s look with floral prints. For the ladies who prefer day time dates, pair your florals with a casual sneaker. Switch the sneakers up for pump heels or heeled booties when it comes to a night time date instead.

Denim can be romantic too. For those who aren’t a fan of dresses and flouncy skirts, choose your best denim for your date day out and look just as chic. Say, embroidered denim. Pair your jeans with a fitted top or something that flows to evoke a sense of romanticism. Cape tops, bows and ruffles, bell and fluted sleeves, chiffon and satin fabrics. These little things help put jeans as a wearable option for Valentine’s day.

Valentine’s day isn’t all about pink and red. It can also be about the simplicity and raw beauty of the colour white. Dress in an ensemble of romantic whites and set yourself to a glow. White linens, soft cottons. A little hint of beige or eggshell works just as well. The only thing you’ll have to worry about with this colour choice is to make sure you don’t spill a drop of wine or leave a food stain. Other than that white is a viable colour choice.

The finer things include the details. Don’t miss out and forget about your hair and makeup. Ask a friend for make up tips or look for tutorials. Pull your hair back into a sleek ponytail or ruffle your bangs for a rugged edge. If you’re going to be wearing something backless, get a body scrub ahead of time. Your overall vibe is amplified by your self care and well-being.

So what’s your style plan for Valentine’s? Share a thought down below.
