STYLE – 12 Ways To Rock Your Style On Valentine’s
Valentine’s Day is as stressful for the singleton as it is for the lucky-in-love. You may be clueless on what the year ahead has planned for you or you may have already your resolution list getting executed. No matter your progress to achieve your goals as a powerful woman, giving and receiving love is the most important life resource for all of us - to be happy, to feel powerful, to take steps in life more confidently knowing you are loved and you have people to love.
Whether you’re heading out with your special someone or you celebrating your freedom with the much-loved Galentine’s, you'd want to show off and enjoy a more daring style. After all, it’s another day (and a perfect excuse) to look incredible and feel sexy for us.
1. The Chic And Sexy Suit
This look is sexy but classy – cigarette pants elongate your frame and the adjusted blazer cinches you in at the waist. Perfect if you’ve booked somewhere fancy!
2. The Flirty Midi Skirt
The midi skirt is one of those must-have items – rock them with sneakers by day and throw your best pair of heels on by night to dress it up. They add a flirty and feminine touch to your outfit, but can be worn with a biker jacket for an edgier look.
3. Show A Little Flesh
Whether you are out on a date or having a night out in town with the girls this Valentine’s, go for a sophisticated vibe with a lace body and high waist cigarette pants. Chrissy has mixed androgynous tailoring with a sexy body for a chic and modern take on styling. Her loose curls add the perfect finishing touch, as it screams “bombshell”!
4. Playing With Texture
You may feel like we’re repeating ourselves but we love playing with texture – velvet with tulle, or in Kate’s case, glitter and faux fur, are such fun combinations that take your outfit to the next level! Her look is so extra yet on-point for any amazing venues you may be invited to this year.
5. Denim Dates
For more relaxed, casual dates or girls’ nights in you may have planned, then you can always dress up denim. Because despite what you may have heard, denim can be made more formal! Wear your dressiest crop top or body and be prepared to wow!
6. Winter Warmers
Unless you happen to live in an exotic location (lucky you), then February happens to be in winter and you’ll be facing chilly temperatures on your Valentine’s outings. Why not mix your winter warmers with a more feminine piece in your wardrobe? A cozy knit with a tulle skirt keeps you snug but statement, so you won’t be compromising your style at all.
7. Legs For Days
You can never go wrong with a mini skirt – it flatters your curves and makes your legs look like they go on forever. Skirts with a cute detail such as a wrap detailing or embroidery add a subtle yet stylish touch to your outfit for those of you who love a more classic look.
8. LBD (aka. little black dress)
Of course, you could always go for your trusted LBD. Pull that black dress out of your wardrobe and look classy for your Valentine’s plans. Choose a piece with an interesting back detailing or a feminine neckline for an interesting twist to your outfit. If you want an extra trip – style your LBD up with an oversized blazer to edge it up.
9. All White On The Night
Though head-to-toe white seems intimidating at first, you will look fierce and turn heads as you rock up to the venue in white. Though we recommend tailoring in that shade – perhaps a dress could look a little bridal!
10. Luxe Satin
Add a luxurious touch to your outfit with a hint of satin. Reach out for those show-stopping satin slip dresses you rocked throughout summer 2018 and layering them under an oversized knit for the perfect winter date outfit.
11. The Wrap Dress
The wrap dress is the perfect cover up for a date where you want to dress to impress – a daring slit, a feminine v-neck and an elegant length to wear with your best heels. Opt for a deep red or burgundy and feel confident in a bold, statement look!
12. Love Leopard Print
Don’t be afraid to showcase the true fashionista you are with a hint of leopard print. Team jewel shades such as emerald and sapphire with an on-trend animal print for your next date night. Jewel tones compliment all skin tones and make your eyes pop – just what you need to get their attention!
