4 Killer Outfits to Wear on Valentine’s Day
Valentine’s day is fast approaching, which means chocolate, flowers, and probably an amazing dinner somewhere romantic. Deciding what to wear on valentine’s day doesn’t have to cause you stress. The following Valentine’s day outfit ideas have been tried and tested to the fullest to ensure maximum sexiness, romance, and drama for your night out.
Flirty and Feminine Lace
Lace is making a big comeback, with a few updates. Gone are the days of 80’s block dresses with puffy sleeves that screamed “cheap wedding”. Instead opt for a flirty baby-doll cut with a demure neckline for a look that is as understated as it is sexy. A pair of simple ballerina flats in a contrasting color will round out the look and give it a little something extra.
The Classic LBD
Huffington Post contributor, and fashion icon Andre Leon Talley has referred to the little black dress as “The zenith of elegance in any woman’s wardrobe.” Though a little black dress might not seem very festive for a holiday representing love and romance, but for the girl who likes to keep it simple and classy there is nothing sexier than the classic LBD. Go for your most daring black dress or really get inventive with the accessories to keep from looking like you’re dressed for a funeral. Sequins are making a comeback, and look excellent while brightening up darker shades.
Your LBD look doesn’t have to be the least bit dull. Try for a pop of color with bright shoes in a jewel tone.
Add a Touch of the Classic
Incorporating a bit of vintage style into your regular look for special occasions is a fun way to experiment with a different aesthetic. Because romance in the digital age can seem somewhat like a memory of the past, it makes sense to bring a little old time charm into the most romantic day of the year.
This is not to say that you should go out and buy a flapper or 1950’s housewife costume and wear it on a date if that isn’t your typical style. Rather take a dress you already own and jazz it up a bit with a string of pearls or chunky, mod jewelry.
Go Traditional with Something Red and Saucy
Red is the quintessential color for Valentine’s day, and for good reason. No color has been more associated with romantic love, besides wedding white of course. A recent study by Dr. Andrew Elliot Ph.D found that “men find women sexier if they’re sporting a crimson hue rather than, say, blue or green.”
You probably won’t be the only one wearing the shade because it is the most popular for the day, so be sure to choose an outfit that best represents your sense of style. If dresses aren’t your thing try a slim pant and cropped-sleeve jacket to go for a “She-Devil Meets Fashion Editor” type of look. Pair your slinky red number with brightly colored lips especially if you don’t typically do lip color. The slight change will make you seem more alluring on this most romantic of days.
Valentine’s day is an excellent excuse to get more dressed up than usual and have a great time. On this most romantic of holidays, allow your personal style to shine. Express your love in style.
