Valentine’s Day outfits for different types of dates
Hearts Day is almost here! Hopefully by now, you’ve already picked out the perfect Valentine gift for your beau. ^_^ Have you already planned out how to spend February 14 together? Remember that quality time keeps the flames alive!
Whether you’ve made reservations for a romantic dinner or organized a great outdoor adventure, it's important to put together an outfit that will help you stay pretty! After all, there's no shame in wanting this Valentine’s Day to be one for the books and the Instagram feed! *wink*
Romantic Breakfast/Brunch Date
Candlelit dinners are usually par for the course, but brunch dates have a special kind of charm. There's an extra kilig factor in getting to spend the first part of your day with the most special person in your life! Look for a quiet romantic spot with great comfort food to make it worth the early wakeup call. You can cheat your way to a shorter prep time by choosing a dress or terno like this beautiful peach combo. Finish the look with no-brainer but no-fail neutral accessories!
Theme Park Adventure
All the walking around can be pretty tiring, but theme parks are the most fun for kids at heart! Extra care must go to picking out your amusement park outfit though, as a roller coaster ride can be a wardrobe malfunction waiting to happen. Pick out something comfy and snug, and style it with dependable sneakers. A pastel color palette can make even the most casual of pairings look more V-day appropriate. Just don’t forget to apply sunscreen and use makeup with SPF protection!
Out and About Travel Date
There's nothing quite like discovering new places and sharing the experience with your special someone in tow. Barring religious and cultural restrictions, you should also have fun with your outfit! You can’t go wrong with a classic silk white shirt, and pairing it with a flowy maxi skirt screams maximum comfort yet ultimate glam. This is a getup that can truly take you anywhere, anytime from a morning museum visit to casual evening stroll. It’s all about showing just enough skin without the outfit being uncomfortably too warm or cool. Complete the look with a small, essentials-only bag, your favorite sunnies, and comfy shoes.
In a sea of white, pinks, and reds, a dark colored dress makes for a unique choice! Keep it feminine with a play on print, texture, or both, like this flower-printed maxi dress. The flowy cut and demure cutout makes this dress uber sexy while still hiding your tummy after pigging out on your packed treats.
Fancy Dinner Date
Break out the stilettos and red lipstick: this is where you go all out! There are only a few occasions in a year where you can take your vampy bodycon dress for a spin, and V-day is definitely one of them! Complete the look with strappy heels and a small clutch. And because your garb is already a statement in itself, keep it light with the jewelry; some diamond ear studs and your best dress watch should be enough.
Singles Night Out
So, you’re spending Valentine’s day without a partner this year. That doesn’t have to equate to sulking at home, flipping through Netflix, and chilling by yourself (although that’s perfectly awesome, too). Gather your similarly unattached gal pals, and party the night away! It wouldn’t hurt to turn a few heads on your way to the dance floor with a classy but sexy LBD.
