Mate date, out for dinner, or needing new luxury lingerie? We’ve got you covered!
We are fast approaching Valentine’s Day and if you have a Valentine’s Day date planned, we have some suggestions for what to wear – and not necessarily involving any purchases because many of the ideas below simply involve going shopping in your closet or rethinking/updating something you already own.
Whether that date is out somewhere at a restaurant or bar, or is a night in, you will want to look your gorgeous best for yourself as well as for a partner, so here’s how:
- Wear gorgeous underwear.
Even if it is only going to be seen by you and the inside of your laundry basket, merely wearing it will make you feel fabulous and more confident.
- Wear a colour that flatters you and makes you feel good.
Yes, we know we go on a bit (or a lot) about colour but it is such an important factor in self-confidence that it should always be top of our list when we are choosing a garment. If you have a great piece in your wardrobe that you love when it is hanging up, but which you stop loving the minute you put it on, that’s probably to do with the colour or it could be to do with the neckline. One suggestion to solve both issues is to drape, loop or wrap a scarf round your neck in a colour that is “wow” on you. And when we drone on about colour, we are not referring to “colour” in the paint-box sense; you may suit actual colours such as emerald, fuchsia or orange, but your very best colour may be a particular shade of pale grey or mushroom – they may be the shades that make your skin glow and your features look their best, rather than what we immediately think of as “colour”, so add one of those…
- Reinvent an existing dress or outfit.
If you have a dress or outfit in your wardrobe that you love and you know looks great on you, wear it for your date night; if you know you look good, your confidence shines through. Think of ways to reinvent it (i.e. give it a Spring 17 look) with fabulous accessories or, if it needs a jacket, try topping it with a statement jacket such as a biker.
- Wear what you feel comfortable in # 1
Wear a style, length and combination that is in your comfort zone (i.e if you feel much happier wearing trousers/jeans rather than a dress/skirt, wear the trousers/jeans). But if you go for the trousers/jeans option, glam the outfit up with accessories and consider wearing “wow” shoes rather than loafers-and-socks, to distinguish it from your daytime look.
- Wear what you feel comfortable in # 2
We mean it also in the more literal sense of avoiding anything in clothing or footwear that is uncomfortable. If something feels tight, rides up, pinches or pulls anywhere, don’t wear it for Date Night as your discomfort will show on your face.
Here are some ideas for Valentine’s Day dressing – whatever your plans…
