Is a Valentine’s Day Look Really Necessary?
Are you putting your Valentine’s Day Look together? Of course you are! Ever since Junior High us ladies have searched high and low for the perfect Valentine’s Day outfit to wear out to help Cupid out with his yearly match-making. January 2nd we put away our gold and beer glass sunglasses and begin to search pink dress, red pumps or even a nice toga (hey Cupid is an extremely fashionable little dude). But my question is “Is it necessary”?
I am always looking for a new look, but to be honest, I have never been one for buying a new outfit for Valentine’s Day. I can never decide “red or pink” and neither colors can be put together, its wardrobe taboo for me. Also, I am not one for the “I’m single let’s have a girl’s night out” and going to a party seems too “high school VDAY party”. However, a few of my friends have been asking for tips for the VDAY-wear and I am going to share those tips with you lovelies.
Valentine’s Day Brunch. Wear something very cute and modest, with a little bit of edge. Try a mint green suede or leather jacket with a lace dress and moto boots. Add pink accessories to make your look pop! A nude lip and subtle eye makeup is perfect for this look.
Cocktails with the Girls. Cocktails with your chicas should always be a fun look, so try a white coat and a tube pink dress paired with black pumps so that you are able to wear these pieces later with other garments in your wardrobe. Try a pink lip and a smoky-eye for a vibrant and fun make up palette. Silver jewelry is your best for this look, your dress will have enough color, you don’t want to ooze pinkness!
Valentine’s Date Night. I feel that red is always a great color for date night because it is so romantic and dare I say, sexy! So try a red peplum dress. The peplum dress is great for any body-type. It gives curves for ladies with small curves and flatters women with bigger curves and attributes. I am a firm believer that on a date a woman should look classy, so a classic black trench would be perfect for date night. A silver heel will had a littlesparkle to your look as well as silver jewelry. Depending on your skin tone or comfortability, try a red lip. If the red lip is too much for you, go with a nude lip.
What are your Valentine’s Day Plans? Do you have a different look in mind for brunch, Cocktails with the Girls or Date Night? Do you feel a new look is necessary for Valentine’s Day or Not?
