Good morning everyone, another day and yet another outfit inspiration to get you through Valentines Day. So today’s attire is based around this pleated maxi dress. I don’t know about you all but I do love a pleated dress or a skirt. The pleats create a flattering movement as as I walk and of course add some texture to the dress.
My dress is from Self-Portrait and it has been made from layers of delicate chiffon. This floor sweeping dress has a v-neck and long sleeves. I am loving the emerald hue which flatters my skin tone. Here I have decided to wear a bold red lip in the shade Feels So Grand from M.A.C. As for the shoes I am wearing my Steve Madden leopard print courts, and to complete my look I have styled the dress with my gold vintage bag and a pair of gold earrings.
Now if you a contemplating on what to wear for your big night out, well ponder no more I have broken it down to three date scenarios. Whether it’s your first date, your first valentines date or for those of you who are either married or in a long term relationship. I have you all covered here.
So lets begin with the first date, I would suggest maybe taking a more casual approach when picking out an outfit. Of course that can depend on where the first date is taking place, if you heading out somewhere to eat. Why not go for some jeans styled with heels, a body and a blazer. By all means opt for what makes you feel confident and comfortable. If the first date goes well then you have ample opportunity to amp up your style on future dates!
FIRST VALENTINES DATE:
Next and onto first time Valentines date, you can go for the usual red should you choose to. It is so expected so why not try another colour instead or even go for colour blocking and go for red and pink together if you are adamant about wearing red. Maybe go for something with a bit of lace which always looks very romantic. Again choose something you know will make you feel confident and sexy at the same time. Therefore leaving you to enjoy your night with your date!
MARRIED COUPLES AND LONG TERM RELATIONSHIPS:
Moving onto those of us who are in a long term relationship or married. I guess you can choose to wear whatever you like, I am sure like most of you I like to make an asserted effort. It is my opportunity to wear all those dresses that I have hanging in my closet to come out and make an appearance. You know the ones I am talking about, the dresses you can’t really go to your local shops in! Hubby loves most of my outfits so I can choose any outfit of my choice, as I know he will love it. You all know what your partners love should you choose to dress for them.
