Good old Valentine’s Day. You either love it or you hate it but regardless of how you feel about it, you probably can’t avoid it no matter how hard you try. At the end of the day, Valentine’s Day is a time to show your significant other you care and one way to do that is by dressing up.
Here are some ideas, and how to clad up for each,
Go out for dinner.
What better way to spend Valentine’s Day than dining out in style? Go out for a nice dinner in a fancy restaurant, for once! Nothing brings out the Valentines Spirit than good food in a good environment.
The Girl: Sometimes being cliché is not the worst thing in the world and there’s nothing hotter than wearing red on V-Day. If you’re going out for a fancy dinner, seek out a red lace dress for the occasion with sleeves. Don’t forget to throw on your sexiest pair of pumps.
The Guy: You need to step up your game for your Valentine’s Day dinner date. Take a cue from your everyday stylings, add a little special touch. and you are all set up. We recommend a great fitted button up tucked shirt with a corresponding leather belt and dress shoes.
You can create your very own little piece of paradise within by creating a “romantic” ambiance like they do in films and buoy yourselves up without paying the restaurant mark-up. It helps if you can cook as there’s nothing sexy about a bad chef, but should the evening go well, it’s all so very much more convenient.
The Girl: Just because you are staying indoors is no excuse not to brush your hair and wear something that was just in your laundry hamper just because you’re spending the night at home. Make your lover feel special by throwing on a little makeup and a stylish but comfy outfit. You can also throw in tights, a plaid shirt and a knitted sweater perfect for your couch cuddling!
The Guy: You’re probably also tempted to wear your boy-hoodie but resist the urge. Comfort and style can go hand in hand. For example, a pair of jeans, a fitted t-shirt and a black cardigan? Just picture wearing this with house mandals for added at home comfort. Look good?
Go Out Clubbing, for a Movie or a Play
On Valentines Day, clubs, cinemas and play theatres are normally themed for the day. The Decor and the shows. Why not take advantage of the opportunity for some cuddling, cute hand-holding and a giant tub of popcorn?
The Girl: This is where your your sleek Little Black Dress comes in. This, nude pumps and an understated clutch and you are a red-carpet material. The beauty of an LBD is that in terms of accessories, anything goes. For shoes, a simple black heel or something with a pop of colour will look equally swell. Your date for the evening will surely appreciate the effort you took to look that good.
Watching a Game
You both love a good game so you couldn’t think of a better way to spend Valentine’s Day than in seats at your favourite sporting event, oh, the KPL season is starting this Valentines Weekend. And the FA super games!
The Girl: Bring your jersey and pair it with a great pair of leather tights or pick up a cheeky mid-drift baring t-shirt. Skip the heels in favour of boots or a cute pair of flats.
The Guy: You don’t want to look high maintenance at a sporting event so this date is likely the only one you could get away with wearing a cap, and track suits. You can wear jeans and a zip up. This, with a pair of boots or these outdoors and you pull up a perfectly casual look.
Happy Valentines Day from Bata!
