At home date
Staying home for a special time is surely no reason to dress down. Although you and your partner have decided to create fond memories from the comfort of your home, there’re still some kick ass outfit options to make a statement in this V-Day. When dressing for a stay-at-home date, it can be quite easy to either overdo or underdo it. The key is to maximize comfort while casually amplifying your hot-girl vibe. Don’t go too hard as relaxed slay will always win.
For some, the combination of sand, sun, and sea is impossible to resist. If this is you, then a beach date is likely to be your perfect fit. While you’re dipping your legs in the sea and watching the crabs burrow in the sand, the outfit you choose to mark this occassion is important. Opt for something that screams easy breezy beautiful like a flowy dress, a sexy bikini with a sheer skirt, or denim shorts finished off nicely with a stylish crop top. The entire ensemble should command attention effortlessly. (Emphasis on effortlessly.)
Lunch date is a great opportunity to get away with something skimpy and/or playful. The very essence of lunch date is fun, flirty, and fabulous so slip into something that very well communicates this. Unfortunately, this year’s Valentine’s day falls on a Monday (bummer), and there’s a possibility that you’ll be catching up for your date during work hours. If this is you [sadly], then it wouldn’t make sense to go to work in skimpy, but fret not, we have a plan. Opt for a work-friendly skirt or pants paired nicey with a flirty top and finished off with a blazer. During date time, ditch the blazer for an instant date-ready ensemble.
Thank God things have returend to normal around the world as we gradually leave the pandemic behind. This is music to the ears of cinema lovers who would rather enjoy the experience to seeing a movie in theaters than Netflix and chill. For your Valentine’s day outit idea, get into elevated casual and you’ll make the right point. This is certainly important because in as much as you want to make a fashion-statement, you also need to consider the activities the day will bring. Good luck!
A dinner date is an intimate affair (not saying others aren’t intimate), so you need an outfit that will further match the atmosphere. It’s likely going to be just the both of you, eyes locked, sipping red wine, and remembering all the reasons you fell for each other. Considering all the steam your man will be emitting, take things up a notch and get into something so sexy it’ll be a crime to take his eyes off you. Do keep the fire service on speed dial as he’s sure to explode before the night’s over.
Now’s the time to dress up as edgy as you so please! Valentine’s day outfit ideas for formal dates are loaded with show stopping numbers with all the bells and whistles. Think embellishments, crafty details, figure-hugging numbers and everything in between. Go wild girl, today’s your day.
Valentine’s day party date
When showing up for a party date, you undoubtedly want to be the Queen of the Ball, so let your ensemble communicate this. While you’re dressing up to keep attention, you don’t want to appear like you’re trying too hard. This is a huge no-no in fashion as it is with any other area of life. That is to say, effortlessness is the order of the day and when you can get this right, even Cinderella doesn’t stand a chance.
