The most loved day of the year, Valentine’s Day is almost here and like it or not, you cannot escape the whiff of romance in the air. Whether you are going to a romantic candlelight dinner with your special someone or chilling at home, we have you covered. Check out our ultimate guide to look your romantic best this Valentine’s Day no matter what your plans are.
Going to your first date? You can wear a super-cute dress in pastel shades or white. Put on dewy make up with pink lips and casually tousled hair, since it is your first date and you do not want to make it look like you have put in a lot of effort. Finish off the look with a cute bag and matching pumps. Do not forget to carry a cardigan or shrug if it gets too cold at night.
If your man is taking you for dinner at a posh restaurant, you need to look like an elegant diva. With sexy eyelets, mesh panels and delicate cuts are perfect for a romantic yet glamorous occasion like this. You can pick any colour or style that suits you and feels comfortable. Accessorise your outfit with a classy clutch, dainty jewellery and strappy sandals. Go for a messy ponytail for an elegant look.
You might love to watch a movie in jeans the rest of the year, but since you are with your date and it’s Valentine’s Day, ditch your favourite pair of jeans for a fun and flirty dresses or skirt and tops. Layer it up with a leather jacket and tights, if it is cold outside. Finish off the look with a half up-half down hair updo, antique tribal jewellery in a silver finish, soft pink kissable lips and wedges. It is a perfect outfit to sit through the movie, feel the romance, and steal a few kisses.
Off to the wilderness for a romantic picnic watching the sun cast its warm orange glow on the summit/lake? It is time to take out your trusty pair of ripped denim or denim shorts and a quirky sweatshirt with hearts, lips or other cool shout-outs. Finish off your look with a fishtail braid, a pretty pink pout and comfortable sneakers. Take your inspiration from Kirti Sanon who rocks this look while travelling.
Even if your plan for the romantic day involves nothing more than a romantic movie, take away from your favourite restaurant, and sipping wine with your man, it does not mean you have to stay in your PJs the whole day. Enjoy the day in a long loose-fit skirt, with a solid black or white button-down shirt or a simple top, if you are absolute lazy to dress up. Add a conch shell belt to enhance the outfit. Style your tresses in loose curls and leave them open. Don’t forget to wear sexy lingerie underneath for some steamy sessions afterwards.
You are one hell of a lucky woman if your plan for the day includes a lovely romantic intimate candlelight dinner under the open sky by the beach. So, why not make the effort and look your romantic best? You can wear shorts with spaghetti top or bohemian dress. It will give the perfect beach vibes with the right amount of sexiness. You can either keep the look minimal with pink lips, flushed cheeks, and no accessories or accessorise it a little with silver jewellery pieces. Carry a light cardigan or shrug with you to ward off the night chill.
Heading out to the hottest club in town with your hotties? If yes, then you have to dress your best for the evening because you never know, your special someone might be waiting there for you. It is all the better if you can lay your hands on a dress that is little shiny. Leave your hair open, accessorise it with dangling earrings, and stacked bracelets.
What would Valentine’s Day be without red? If you don’t mind wearing the bold and vivacious red on this day then, a sophisticated maxi dress or gown in red. Take inspiration from Kareena Kapoor who knows how to rock red like no other. Style your hair in soft curls or a low messy bun and wear delicate accessories for Valentine’s Day party. It is sure that your man will not be able to take his eyes and hands off you!
