Slay Your Valentine’s Day – How to Dress for the Occasion
Valentine’s is coming. You know it’s another hallmark holiday and the perfect excuse to shop for a cute outfit, throw on a nice dress, add a bit of jewellery, and enjoy the night. Whether it’s a romantic out with your man or a night of a few whiskies with your friends, use the day as an opportunity to dress up and feel good about yourself.
If you’re stuck on outfit ideas, we’ve put together a few tips to make finding the right outfit for any occasion a breeze.
1. Anything that involves a meal
It’s still cold because it’s winter, but you still have a reason to dress elegantly. With red being the theme of the day, find a piece that embraces the holiday of love and its bold color. An asymmetrical, one shoulder dress, red in colour with a slit-and-open back is sure to stun your date. Try a flutter sleeve dress for a softer more romantic look, or radiate confidence and class in a classic A-line solid colour piece. Wrap yourself in a warm coat to brave the weather, and you’re all set.
Red is probably the theme of the night, that’s a given, but if you’re concerned about blending in with everyone else’s outfit, pair a statement piece with your outfit.
Whether you’ve chosen to wear a dress, trousers, or a bodysuit, break the norm and polish your look with the VAENO Tuxedo Blazer.
Such an exquisitely tailored item will go with any outfit to create a flawless silhouette. The perfect piece to transition from a formal dinner straight to the bar. Add your favourite earrings and a pair of walkable heels. You’ll be unstoppable.
3. If you don’t have a date
Alright, it’s Valentines, but you don’t have a date. Maybe you’re in between relationships, you don’t enjoy the holiday, you dislike crowds, or you’re just too busy to go out. Just because you don’t have plans doesn’t mean you can’t use the day as an excuse to dress up.
Don a casual crop top with high-waist pants or a playful outfit you’ve been waiting to show off.
Adding the final touches to your outfit
Alright, you’re all set with your outfit. You’re dressed for the occasion, you’ve made sure you’ve got a coat so that you won’t freeze, but have you given thought to what you’ll be wearing underneath your dress, or later in the evening? Whether someone else will be seeing your undergarments is left to be determined, but there is no reason why you can’t enjoy feeling sexy all night long.
Incredibly bold, yet sexy, the see-through pieces of clothing will keep your legs warm, pull your outfit together, and entice your partner with the possibilities of what might come later.
Nothing spoils an outfit like wearing the wrong pants. Cute, sexy, satin, or lace, just make sure you take a good look in the mirror before you go out to make sure no trace of your undergarments is visible. You’ll have more than ample time to show them off later, if you choose to do so.
A full set that includes a romantic top and bottom will make you a sweet and innocent while having a more risqué outfit prepared will surely make the night one not to forget.
There are still a few days left to plan your perfect outfit. Oh, and while you’re at it, you might want to make sure you’ve secured your reservations for the 14th. It would be a shame to get all dressed up to stand around waiting.
