With Christmas and New Year behind us, the opportunities to dress festively seem to be dwindling… until Valentine’s Day that is! Whether celebrating your relationship or using the day as an excuse to indulge in a bit of self-pampering, Valentine’s Day makes for the perfect excuse to add a little romance to your outfit. From your day at the office to casual lunches and long, starry eyed dinners, here are four outfits to take you through from dawn to dusk this February 14th.
Soft, smooth fabrics and lacy trims are the name of the game for Valentine’s Day sleepwear. Waking up in beautiful nightwear, like a matching cami and shorts, pyjama set or an elegant satin nightie will really set the tone for the day, making you feel special from the moment you get out of bed.
The Work Day
Just because Valentine’s Day isn’t a public holiday, doesn’t mean it shouldn’t feel that little bit special. It would be remiss to see Valentine’s Day pass by and not take the opportunity to add a little bit of pink to your outfit. Try a blouse in candy pink with a plain black cropped pant and some simple heels to really get in the Valentine’s spirit.
The Lunch Date
Valentine’s Day in Australia means it’s going to be hot, so opt for a cool, yet classy, outfit. Lunch is a lot more casual than dinner so use it as an opportunity to have fun with your outfit. Pair a floral skirt with a simple top in a plain colour for some lunchtime romance and finish it off with an open toed sandal and a fresh pedicure for that polished finish.
The Fancy Dinner
As we delve deeper into the last month of summer, we’re rapidly approaching the end of dress season. So why not go out with a hurrah? For the full blown hearts and cupids Valentine’s look, dress for dinner in a red, lace dress. Lace is the perfect combination of demure and sophistication, giving little glimpses of skin while still covering up. And you can’t go wrong wearing a red dress on Valentine’s Day. Pair it with a simple pair of black, open toed heels to keep the attention on your dress.
