The most romantic day of the year is again creeping up on us, February the 14th could not be more describable as roses, chocolates, red lips and champagne. Looking our best for date night is key; from head to toe we have you covered and not forgetting how to touch up that sparking smile. With an emphasis on less is more, and simplicity, our focus is on how to get that Valentine’s Day VaVa Voom.
For a complete statement piece that shows off your figure, along with touches of sophisticated elegance the Marigold Strapless Dress by Bec and Bridge is nothing but fun, flirty and perfect for a romantic summer evening. If a touch of mystery, and a dash of sexy is something you lean towards, opting for a jumpsuit such as this one by Ganni paired with black accessories, such as a belt and pumps will definitely make you looking like the most wanted on February the fourteenth.
If your night will consist of last minute decisions, versatility in your outfit will be of the utmost importance. Keeping the lines clean and feminine in your attire, the Ellette Pant by Bec and Bridge is exactly that, which are able to be switched from a casual night in styled with a knitted singlet, or a cashmere tank such as the Tillman Tank for a casual chic look. If you have to get spruced and dressed up at the last minute, throw on a pair of strappy sandal styled heels and you are good to go. If you are feeling the outfit, but are not entirely comfortable with pants then don’t worry, because we have you covered. The Ribbed-Knit Skirt by Joseph is the perfect option to swap out for. Not only, this skirt also can be dressed down for a casual option just like the Ellette Pants, pairing this skirt with white Birkenstock’s is the ultimate casual chic.
To dress up either of the pant or skirt choices, especially if your date is taking you somewhere exclusive and luxe, matching both items with an elegant top piece consisting of lace is the key to a sophisticated, and sexy look whilst beaming less is more. The Caravan Embroidered Smock Top is the ideal option, involving flow and an essence of carefree class to achieve the idyllic look. Not only is the Smock Top a versatile piece for spring and summer, it can be paired with jeans for a look that can be converted from work to night, or styled with denim or matching shorts for that girl next door style. Acne Studio’s is a brand that is known for their clean cut and intricate designs, however when it comes to jeans, colour and comfort is their forte. Acne will have a cut and design for each and every body shape, so selecting a pair such as the Row Carter Jeans are a forgiving versatile pair that can be adapted to any casual situation or dressed up for your V-Day date.
The hairstyle tips to go in line with the simple, less is more theme, are loose waves that are easily able to be pinned back into a bun, or pony tail to give you plenty of options for a carefree look. Our favourite choices are below, and are not hard to achieve when used creatively with bobby pins, sea salt spray or clear hair ties.
