The date night of the year is just around the corner but what will you wear? Look no further for Valentine’s outfit and underwear inspiration.
From the traditional choice of red or heart prints to a more casual date night vibe, there’s plenty on the high street to suit all tastes and body shapes.
So, what are your Valentine’s plans? Romantic dinner date and cinema? Some live music or cocktails and a boogie with the girls?
For a more casual vibe, I would stick to pieces that you know you love and feel good in. Dressing up your faithful skinnies with a satin shirt and a leather-look jacket will never fail! Leather-look pants also give a sexy and fierce look but can be easily dressed-down with a band tee or plaid shirt and loads of jewellery. A heart shaped clutch bag or red lippie will give a subtle nod towards V-day without feeling too over the top. Sneaky peeks of leopard print or lace will also add a sultry edge without making you feel too ‘Pat Butcher!’
If you’re feeling more ‘va va voom’ what better time to wear that strapless red dress that you bought in the sales and have never dared to wear? Team with simple nude heels or strappy sandals and minimalist accessories for a sophisticated look. Wrap dresses are great for curvier figures as they accentuate the waist. Many shops are still stocking velvet or satin materials from the party season and various items are now available in the sales with large discounts!
For a night out with the girls go for slinky and sexy! Backless tops in a lightweight material look amazing when dancing and can really dress up a pair of black or denim skinnies. Monochrome is also a good option for laid back, tailored styling. Think a very low cut jumpsuit with long sleeves and slim cut legs. So chic!
When it comes to underwear, be as daring as you feel you can be! There’s some beautiful lace and cut-out styles on the high street and online that are meant to be seen. Black is always a great option but there are also some gorgeous, rich tones available. Navy, emerald, wine and violet make for flirty, playful choices.
However, remember, if showing underwear ‘less is more.’ Showing the scalloped edges of a pretty lace bra will look much more stylish and sexy than purposely wearing something that pushes your cleavage up to your chin! Tantalise the imagination!
Wishing you a beautiful Valentine’s Day! Feel confident, look sassy and spread the love!
