Long after the last gifts of Christmas past have been opened and the shiny ornaments packed away, there is one (sort of) holiday that breaks up the monotony of winter before spring officially sprung – Valentine’s Day! Single or coupled up, Valentines is no longer a day exclusive to lovers but to everyone who believes in celebrating the season of love. There are tonnes of non-romantic activities to celebrate the 14th of February such as brunch with friends, skating in the canal with the family, group dates at the movies.
Despite the bad rap it gets as a commercially made Holiday, Valentines is a fabulous opportunity to get all dolled up. There are plenty of fun ways to celebrate Day of Love that there’s also plenty of way to get all dressed up for it!
Here are our TOP 3 LOOKS FOR A PERFECT VALENTINES DATE:
THE ABSOLUTE ROMANTIC
Single or taken, there is no excuse to not look beautiful and romantic on Valentine’s Day! There is a reason red is the colour of love, it symbolizes passion, energy, sensuality… all notable qualities of being in love. Since it is such a bold colour, opt for a softer over all look with light pastel make-up and delicate curls while keeping your accessories minimal. After all, you want to be the centre of his attention on Valentine’s Day, don’t you?
THE LAIDBACK CHIC
There is nothing more chic and sexy than a girl comfortable and confident in her own skin! Pants may not be as seductive as dresses or skirts but they certainly give that kind of allure that’s effortlessly chic. Instead of the conventional black pants, go for this season’s trendiest prints like stripe, floral or plaid. Top it off with a girly lace top or a sporty racer back, go for tall boots or booties; put your hair up in a pony tail and you’re ready to have some fun!
THE FUN AND FLIRTY
Graphic tee? Check. Girly skirt? Check. Knee high boots? Check. Ready to party attitude? Check and check! Don’t take Valentine’s Day too seriously! I’m sure he is already feeling lucky just to score this date with you, anything after that is a sweet cherry on sundae! This look is too cool for school, all you need is to show up!
Which look do you prefer? Valentine’s Day is all about celebrating love and having fun! Whichever look you choose to on Valentines, remember to some love around!
