Love it or hate it you just can’t escape it at this time of year – Valentines is just around the corner, and with it comes the minefield of “what the heck am I going to wear this year?!”
I’m always a little on the fence when it comes to Valentines Day. On the one hand, whether I’m single or in a relationship, I do think it’s cute to spend a day celebrating love however on the flip-side I cannot deny that it can be a bit depressing especially if you’re watching loved up couples staring lovingly into each other’s eyes while you’re planning a very romantic date with your sofa and a tub of Ben and Jerry’s.
I’m not sure what I’m going to be doing this Valentines Day, but one thing is for sure – I have my wardrobe prepared thanks to the ever so generous folk at Pretty Little Thing who asked me to pick out my favourite items from their Valentines edit! I decided to show you how I’d style each piece for different Valentines occasions to give you a bit of inspiration for whatever you may have planned – whether you’re planning a Galentines extravaganza with your besties, a date night with your partner or a cheeky night in I have you covered!
Romantic Date Night
There’s nothing I like more than looking super sophisticated for date night. I love dressing up smart, and therefore for me the ultimate date night outfit has to be the little black dress. This one* screams badass girl boss with it’s tuxedo detailing and super sexy shape – I love the exaggerated shoulders and double breasted buttons down the front. I teamed it with some strappy black heels* to add a little height and accessorised with my favourite jewellery pieces including my beautiful Thomas Sabo necklace that I got for Christmas.
Heading out with your besties? I’ve got you covered! This burgundy satin number* ticks all the boxes – sexy and sophisticated? Check! Super flattering? Check! I love the super low neckline and the fact that it’s long sleeved which makes it that bit more weather appropriate for this time of year. Again I accessorised with black heels* and my favourite jewellery – with this dress, having a long necklace works really well to draw attention to that super sexy neckline.
A Valentines Night In
Whether on your own or with someone special, I have just the thing to help you live your best life this Valentines! This satin teddy* makes me feel super boujee and kinda reminds me of something Blair Waldorf would wear so of course I like to swan round my room pretending I’m in some swanky Upper East Side apartment living my best life.
