Valentine’s day is just around the corner ( I mean, like, tomorrow ). For the ladies who haven’t decided what to wear yet, I have prepared a list of 3 outfits which are perfect for a Valentine’s day rendez-vous.
Even though I am not a big fan of Valentine’s Day – love should be celebrated every day, couples should always do fun things together and people should express their feelings of affection every day, not only once a year – I know there are lots of people out there who really make a big deal out of Valentine’s day, so I am here to help.
Here are the three outfits that I have created in order to give you some inspiration for this occasion:
Last year was all about slip dresses and wearing lingerie outdoors, and this outfit idea is inspired exactly from that trend.
I have paired the lingerie top with the vinyl pants which are everywhere nowadays, every fashionista has at least one pair of those in her closet. In order to keep it sweet & ladylike, I have chosen pink and rose gold accessories, and the white jacket which emphasizes the waistline. If it’s too cold outside, you can always add a blazer, switch the jacket with a thicker coat and add a hat / gloves, but make sure to stay in the same color scheme.
This outfit is more on the comfortable side, and I have chosen two different types of shoes for the sweater dress: the combat boots and the block heel ankle boots. If there is snow on the ground (because some countries do have snow in February) or if you just don’t want to wear heels for the night, go for the leather combat boots. If you want to feel more dressed up, wear the ankle boots or some knee-high or tigh-high boots.
I have added the green coat for a pop of color to the all-black outfit, and I really love how the gold accessories complete the look. The belt is not a must, you should add it only if the sweater dress feels too baggy and you want to emphasize your waist.
I recommend wearing a red lipstick with this outfit, or a smokey eye with nude lips.
This outfit is for all the casual girls out there. You can never go wrong with a white shirt, and the ripped jeans give a super cool vibe to the whole outfit. Keep it comfy with your favorite pair of sneakers, and put on your red lipstick to add an elegant touch.
As for the jacket, you can rock an all denim look if you are into that kind of combination (and if the weather is favorable), or you can complete the look with a long red coat.
I know not all of us can afford a Vuitton backpack, but I really like the way this one looks in this combination. I have also provided an affordable version of a backpack, from Missguided.
It is obviously not mandatory to look for the exact same pieces that I have presented above, these ideas of mine have the purpose to inspire you to work with your own clothing items or give you a hint on what to buy on your next shopping session.
If you try any of these ideas out and post pictures of them on Instagram, make sure to tag me or mention me in the description (@alexandra_bulac) and use the #ABFashionTips, I would love to see your photos! 🙂
Therefore, ladies (and gents), which of these outfits was your favorite? Comment below, I am extremely curious to hear your opinion, I read and reply to all of your comments.
