Hey all you single and taken ladies out there! Finally scored that last minute hot date for Valentines Day and now scrambling for that perfect wow outfit? Spending a romantic evening with your significant other and want to look downright sexy? Fear not, your V-day outfit inspiration is here, with mood boards that have a little something for all. From sexy– to impressionably cute– you can guarantee a clean room free of discarded outfit options when the night finally arrives.
Nothing is more nerve racking then a first date, let alone a first date on one of the most romantic holidays of the year. You want the first impression to be memorable but not TOO memorable, aka leave the costume makeup and daring outfits at home. On a first date, you want to look beautiful but also yourself. Going lighter on the makeup front with softer tones like a light pink lipstick or a thinly drawn cat eye with a few coats of your trusted mascara, will be the perfect amount of enhancement to those natural features of yours. When choosing an outfit, you are really giving your first impression on your personality and style, so choosing something that is equally chic, sexy, flirty, and inviting is the end goal. A great statement dress like a printed one(shown below) with feminine silhouettes and colors are a great choice. For Valentines Day, feel free to steer a little bit outside of the “red” color scheme with a range of pink tones from light pink–all the way up to hot pink, a definite flirty and inviting color that will surely ease the mood and pressure a first date brings.
This look is all about going minimal, and not wearing your darkest colors or most “on trend” bold statement jewelry. Simple rose gold cuffs and diamond earrings say classy, while complimenting the color scheme and feel of the look nicely. Of course we all want to have that bit of sex appeal when we could be meeting the man or woman of our dreams, so a sexy heel is a must! Perhaps choose a blush pink pointy toe pump that elongates the leg but doesn’t overtake the dress choice. If you feel like really looking lux and glamorous, a sexy ankle strap statement heel will make your dates jaw drop with your obvious oozing sexiness. Most of us aren’t blessed with the warmest of weather around this time of year, so a jacket is a must. Steer away from the boring blazer route, by showcasing your style and personality with a chic fluffy coat. I love how the beautiful violet coat pairs with the two-tone print dress below, creating an opportunity to expand the pink color scheme with a perfectly muted shade of purple. Depending on your jacket choice and color choices, a nice quilted heart shoulder purse or bejeweled clutch in similar color tones will add that perfect touch to your outfit. A great outfit can make a great impression and could help score you that second date, but don’t forget to bring your personality A-game as well!
Your lover or yourself has planned an unforgettable romantic evening for the two of you, and you want to remind them just why they fell in love with you by looking as beautiful and sexy as the day you first met. Maybe this is the first date night in months and you are dying for an excuse to throw on that sultry smokey eye look and sexy black pumps to mark the occasion. Whether you have been together for two years or marking your 20th anniversary, often longterm relationships can result in trying to impress less as we get comfortable in our love bubbles– perhaps even becoming a bit boring. Though you may be guilty of letting go of the motivation to dress to impress for your significant other, this does not mean your date night valentine’s outfit has to follow suit. Take the opportunity to drum up some extra heat and romance with a sexy number like this one below. I absolutely ADORE this Alice+Olivia Pout Skirt that is perfection for an occasion such as V-Day. Follow a similar silhouette style of this skirt shown when looking for a more budget friendly outfit, but take the extra time to find one that is unique and has something visually interesting going on. This high waisted nude chiffon skirt with appliqued lips is beyond cute, but throw on a deep-v camisole bralet to really turn it from cute to downright sexy!
A great black pump or single strap high heel will show just the right amount of skin and leg to make your lover gush in adoration, while other heads will be turning in envy. If the deep-v is a bit too much skin for you or you’re not a fan of your current midriff situation and need a few other shirt style options,check out these — classy but moderately sexy– crop top choices that will still show off your stylish inner self for your beloved. Some cute black dangle earrings or small heart shape studs are the perfect pairing for this killer outfit combo. A nice bold red lip with that smokey eye look with make it hard for your partner to get through dinner without jumping across the table for a heated smooch or two. As you are already (we hope) admired by your partner for your natural beauty on the daily, it’s ok to now put on a bold and strong makeup look for the occasion. A beautiful red bag like this Kate Spade one, keeps right in theme with Valentines day and matches nicely with the rest of the look. Have fun and remember to embrace this day as an opportunity to rekindle or restrengthen the love you have built together for your significant other.
