The air is abuzz with the flutter of Cupid’s wings. Chocolate has never been heartier. The world is bathed in the red of our love.
Yes, that’s right: Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. Which means that you need to get your romantic plans in place now or forever hold your peace. After all, you don’t want to miss out on a romantic meal and all that comes after the fact!
With that tantalising thought in mind… here are some of the best outfit choices for you to make this Valentine’s Day:
Red. Dead. Gorgeous
It’s the colour of the season, so why wouldn’t you wear red this Valentine’s Day?
Red is a powerful colour, the link between attractiveness (for both men and women) is well-documented by scientists. Which means that Valentine’s Day is certainly the most important day of the year to be wearing this striking colour.
If you’re a little worried about overwhelming your date in a stunning red dress, then you can go a little more understated with the look. Red lipstick, some killer red heels or other accent pieces could work in just the same way without being as overwhelming.
Obviously, the only issue is the fact that you might blend in with the restaurant decor. Take a white jacket, just in case.
Embrace the Sleeve
The sleeve is a bit of a contentious piece of fabric, all things said and done. Full, half, puffy, lace, ruffled, and so on and so forth. There’s a world and choice and plenty of opportunity to be disappointed in the outcome of the look. Getting a sleeve to look right can be a Herculean challenge, which is why so many people have chosen to forego them all together for the sake of fashion until now.
Kendall Jenner recently made popular the extremely puffy sleeve, but your look doesn’t have to fall so far to the extreme. Something elegant, understated and comfortable will do. Though if you want to really honour the period this look came from – the disco 80s – then the rule of thumb is quite simple. The bigger the better.
Or take a page out of this much more understated look:
And here’s a little hint for the future of your romance: wedding dresses with sleeves are totally making a comeback. So, you can re-use this look on a much more important date for your relationship 😉
Something a Little Naughty
Of course, if all things go well then your Valentine’s Day shouldn’t end with just the date. So taking some time to consider what is underneath your outfit is vitally important.
Take this look for example:
This look screams Valentine, thanks to the vibrant red colours. This type of luxury lingerie is truly a pleasure to look at and even better to wear. You will feel that much more confident in these pieces, especially if you’re looking to impress a new love. Or even spark some fire into a new one!
In fact, we love this so much, if a little thing like social niceties weren’t an issue, we’d suggest wearing this look to dinner as well! Probably not a good idea, but what a sight that would be.
And that’s all folks! Valentine’s Day is fast approaching, so if you want to own any of these looks then you need to do so ASAP. Of course, that’s not forgetting those of you with no love to speak of. For you, we have these words; love can be as fleeting as the wind, but fashion is forever. Enjoy these looks for yourself if nothing else.
