February is here guys, which means Valentine’s Day is nearby! The month of romance and cheesiness is upon us once again. It’s that time of the year when we drop subtle hints to our bae about what gifts we want, where we want to go, what we want to do, etc. on this special day of love.
For someone who has never really celebrated this day (only probably with girlfriends), I get pretty excited looking at people who do celebrate it. After all you get another reason to celebrate love, so why the hell not?! I’ve put together three different V Day looks in case you need that last minute inspo or need to get your girlfriend something cute to wear for date night (wink wink). These can be worn not only on V Day but on any date night with your special someone. Because, after all, if you like someone, every day is Valentine’s Day, amirite?!
Look 1 – Classy
This look is the classy V Day red dress look with a retro twist to it. Wear this pretty, flowy maxi dress with a side slit to show off those gorgeous legs.
Style your hair into tight little curls for that chic sophisticated look. And top it up with a matching bright red lipstick which will get him swooning over you (or not – if that’s what you’re not aiming for).
Pair it up with delicate accessories like a dainty necklace or earrings and don a pair of lace up heels to complete this glamorous old school chic look.
This outfit is perfect for that fancy restaurant that you’d been eyeing and convincing bae to take you to.
Dress – Flyrobe
Heels – Forever 21
PS – there’s a Giveaway on my Instagram which can help you score this dress for V Day. So, participate now- Flyrobe Giveaway!
Look 2 – Quirky
If you’re bored of the classic red outfits for V Day and want to try something new, you can add statement accessories to your Plain Jane outfit to make it stand out.
Here I accessorised a simple turtleneck and flared midi skirt with this huge lip-shaped earring with tassels to focus the attention away from the outfit and to add an extra bit to playfulness.
I also included a bright pom-pom clutch to add to the quirkiness. The rest of the outfit and makeup can be on the low so that you don’t end up looking like an over-enthusiastic clown.
This outfit is perfect if you want bae to know that you’re a strong, independent woman who isn’t afraid to make a statement. Or… if you could just wear it if you like it.
Top – Shoppers Stop
Skirt – Lifestyle Stores
Heels – Koovs
Earrings – Koovs
Clutch – Thrifted
Lipstick – Kylie Cosmetics Koko K
Look 3 – Cool
The third look basically embodies the major trends going around the Instagram fashion scene right now – boots, bombers, clear lens glasses, you’ve seen it all. (in case you haven’t, follow me on Instagram @ritikakuniyal ;P).
For this look, paired a golden camisole with a bright red (yes red, V Day y’all) skirt and my go-to burgundy bomber.
Accessorised to a minimal with a pair of clear lens sunnies that I’m currently obsessing over.
Completed the look with my fave pair of ankle length booties and Viola – Instagram baddie right there haha!
This look can be worn for a movie date or for a night of bowling coz its chic and comfy at the same time.
Top – Zara
Skirt – Koovs
Bomber – local shop
Sunnies – Forever 21
Boots – Forever 21
Lipstick – NYX Liquid Suede in the shade Soft Spoken
OR you could probably switch all of this for a pair of PJs and enjoy a movie with bae at home.. best date ever, right?
In any case, if you recreate any of the above looks or create some cool ones of your own, don’t forget to tag me in your posts, I would love to see them! Also, don’t forget to participate in the Flyrobe giveaway if you want Valentine’s to be a little lighter on your pockets 😀
