    6 Ways To Dress For Valentine’s Day

    February 7, 2019
    Valentine's Day Date

    Last week, we advised you How To Wear A Denim Skirt, but this week it’s all about the season of love: Valentine’s Day.

    If you’re a hopeless romantic like us, then you’ll know the significance of looking and feeling good on the day dedicated to attraction. More importantly, with January well and truly behind us, it’s time to embrace romantic shades and show off your style. Forget about grey skies and neutral tones, let Cupid’s arrow hit your wardrobe with a splash of colour.

    As an early Valentine’s gift, we’ve carefully selected our favourite pieces that you can wear on the special day. Don’t have a date planned? No problem, we’ve attached some ideas too.

    For six date worthy looks you’ll fall in love with, keep reading or watch our video…

    Date 1 – Cosy Knits and Cinema

    Love Jumper, Denim Skirt, Red Rucksack

    Firstly, since Valentine’s Day falls on a weeknight this year, it’s an easy choice to wear (and do) something simple. A perfect casual outfit, we’ve teamed our versatile denim skirt with a slogan jumper that encapsulates the day. Finished with a rucksack for holding your sweet treats in, this star-studded look balances comfort and chic effortlessly.

    Date 2 – Mesh Dresses and Live Music

    Butterfly Dress, Cardigan, Green Handbag

    So, there’s nothing that adds passion to an evening like music – right? This year switch up your date night by seeing your favourite band live and dance the night away in a showstopping embroidered dress. With your standout piece covered, accessorise your look with a cute cardigan and vibrant bag.

    Date 3 – Bold Prints and Brunch

    Floral Top, Denim Skirt, Cardigan, Red Rucksack

    Celebrate the occasion with food, fun and floral prints when you devote your day to brunch. After all, food is the way to the heart. Keep it casual and stay on-trend by pairing the denim skirt with an oversized floral top. Add a touch of femininity by throwing on a collarless jacket you’ll be smitten with.

    On the other hand, if you’re cooking at home, pick a few signature dishes from places you’ve visited together.

    Date 4 – Jumpsuits and Jazz Clubs

    Red Jumpsuit, Clutch Bag

    For those who fancy being fancy, honour the day with fine dining and a formal dress code. Sophisticated, stylish and in a statement red, our red jumpsuit will be sure to make hearts flutter. Designed to be shown off, pair our one-piece with a beaded clutch.

    P.S. For an original idea and a trip down memory lane, why not recreate your first date? Talk about your first impressions, your initial attractions and the awkward moments in between!

    Date 5 – Tie Dresses and Theatre Shows

    Floral Dress, Jacket, Embroidered Bag

    Make an entrance on your theatre date by letting your outfit take centre stage. Adorned with dramatic florals, our wrap dress is the perfect choice for stealing the show in. Be the star of the show and partner you look with a jacket and an embroidered bag.

    Date 6 – Bodycon Cuts and Cocktails

    Lace Bardot Dress, Floral Handbag

    Finally, if cooking isn’t your strong suit but dressing in style is, opt for a cocktail dress for a cocktail date. Shake things up by wearing our cosmopolitan bardot dress with an eye-catching lace neckline. When it comes to accessorising, call us old fashioned, but we think the simpler the better.
