For Love: Choosing a Valentine’s Day outfit
Whether you’ve finally plucked up the courage to ask him out, or you’ve lost count of how many dates you’ve been on, choosing a Valentine’s Day outfit is no easy task. If you were in a movie, you’d have ample time to get ready; you’d shimmy into your dress, apply your lipstick perfectly, and you definitely wouldn’t be this nervous. But you’re not in a movie — you’re in your messy bedroom — and so the hour before you leave is spent throwing shoes out of your closet, rummaging through the laundry basket for your favourite skirt and making an urgent FaceTime to your best friend. Suddenly, that tub of ice-cream and an Emily in Paris marathon is looking real good.
But it doesn’t have to be that way. You can look real good too, with a little planning and a capsule wardrobe of 10/10 date night pieces. We can’t hide the fact that Valentine’s Day is one of our favourite times of year — we’re all for celebrating love. But like you, our vibe is less frills and hearts… and more sexy and sophisticated.
