Whether it’s your first date, an anniversary or a night out with the girls, the season of love is swiftly approaching and the time to find your perfect outfit is beginning to run out. Whether you hate it or love it, we should embrace Valentine’s Day by spending it with those who we love to be around – be it boyfriend, girlfriend, mother, father or dog. Who said that it has to be all about flowers and watching The Notebook repeatedly? Here are my top outfit picks for every Valentines occasion.
First Date – River Island
Choosing an outfit for a first date is already stressful, but throwing the ‘V-day’ card into the works, does not make the situation any easier. When going for a look, choose one statement piece of clothing that draws attention to your best asset; be it your lean, long legs or a slender waist. For this look I’ve chosen a pair of statement cigarette trousers, a sweet embellished bib and a relaxed, slouchy jumper with a chic pair of white heels. The outfit is relaxed and cool, but still accentuating your best features and looking effortlessly sophisticated at the same time. Winner? I think so.
Anniversary – Miss Selfridge
Whether you’re celebrating your first or fifth anniversary, they are always extremely special and finding the perfect ensemble can be a difficult feat. We suggest going for a simple but elegant look with a touch of sexiness. Remember simplicity is key – stick with a basic piece and dress it up with accessories. When you look back on old photos, you’ll be glad for it! I’ve chosen a fabulous black polo-neck dress with short sleeves and a simple, layered necklace with statement red pumps. Classy, elegant and sexy – the perfect combination for Valentine ’s Day.
Night out – Topshop
So what if you’re not matched up on the 14th? That gives you the perfect excuse to strap on your favourite heels and hit the town. Speaking of heels; I’ve chosen these beauties from Topshop as my favourite pick paired with this amazingly chic culotte Jumpsuit and fringe clutch bag. While it may not be to everyone’s taste, the minimal jumpsuit is the perfect staple piece for your wardrobe this season. Easy to wear and effortlessly cool, it gets the seal of approval.
