The Hot Tinder Date.
You might see this as the ultimate opportunity to dress-to-impress, but don’t be tempted to go OTT. Remember, less is more. Take the night on with an easy, all-in-one piece – not only will they hide your food baby but you’ll look fabulous too, Win win, Opt for a drape dress or a glam playsuit with some sexy heels and minimal accessories.
The ‘Not-Sure-if-it's-a-Date-or-Not’ Date
Doll up and look your best, girlfriend - even if it’s a potential date, there’s nothing stopping you from making an impression. Keep it fun and flirty with a jewel-toned slip, a structured bag and finish with strappy sandals. Lastly, leave your tousled hair out show off your locks like Ariana Grande would.
The BBF(s) Date
Don’t have a date for the night? Have no fear! Valentine’s Day is an excellent excuse to have a fabulous night with your best friend or your favourite gal pals. For a laid-back Galentine’s Day of binge watching your favourite chick flicks and sipping Prosecco, relax in a fuss-free jumpsuit or co-ord and slides.
The Double Date
You lucky thing, you’ve got the best of both worlds and the V-Day love can be shared with your partner and best mate. With the pressure off, it’s the ideal opportunity to be comfy as well as uber stylish. Rep the model-off-duty look with some edgy denim, heels and a blazer. Finish off the outfit with a statement bag.
The Blind Date
This one is the most exhilarating and nerve wracking of them all - like watching the Bachelor - so props to you for braving it on the big V-Day! Opt for a sophisticated and monochromatic skirt and top with boots to roughen the look up for a casual but put-together look - perfect for the unexpected.
The 5-year Serious Relationship Date
If you’re not already married, you both act like it, and dates have been a dime a dozen. So, make like the girl-band and spice up your life - see this as a chance to be daring and step out of your fashion comfort zone. Why not rock the full lace look - you’ll look romantic and hot all at the same time. Remember: some killer heels and jewels to tantalise.
The Online Date
Long distance relationships can be tough and if you don’t get the chance to see your date this February, make sure you plan yourselves a Skype or Facetime date to share the love. To go that extra mile (literally), demand attention by wearing a bright colour or bold print on your top half. Keep it casual with some flattering, comfortable jeans on the bottom. You’ll stand out, even through the screen.
