Date Night Fashion: Dress to impress this Valentine’s Day

Editorial • 12/02/19

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and whilst it may just be seen as an Americanised hallmark holiday, it’s also the perfect excuse for a new Valentine’s outfit. If, rather than the predictable trends of red lace and tight bodycon, you’re opting for sophisticated chic at dinner this year, consider, sharp structures, featherweight satin and beautifully minimalist court shoes from the latest in designer fashion. If you’re all over athleisure, no matter what the occasion, find tapered joggers and high-necked blouses to fit seamlessly with your trusty Balenciaga’s. Don’t just dress to impress, prepare to wow.

See by Chloe Blouse: The art of femininity lies and the perfect Valentine’s Day style lies within the subtle ruffles of this beautiful See by Chloe blouse and with a slight wool finish, you can opt for a longline mac rather than totally covering up in fur. Dress up with skinny black flares or down with ripped or embellished jeans – a fuss-free kitten heel or pointed ankle boot is also your best bet. Let the blouse do the talking and accessorise minimally; a simple clutch or mini cross-body will complete the look.

Audrey Velvet Pants by Khaite: With red being the colour of love, tone down pillar box and rock the deep, stylish hues of Burgundy created in plush, sensual velvet – the perfect base to your Valentine’s day outfit. Their fitted straight leg with an ever so subtle flare makes them a versatile choice for teaming with slingback stilettos and a flute of champagne or a going for slightly more casual sophistication with a chunky ankle boot and oversized boyfriend shirt. Whichever way you’re choosing to style these high-waisted wonders, going embellished and even oversized with your earrings is a must.

Metallic Pleated Midi Skirt by Baum Und Pferdgarten: When Baum Und Pferdgarten created a metallic high waisted midi in a lavender silk blend, they proved there really is no such thing as overdressed and also created all of the answers to your ‘what to wear on Valentine’s Day’ prayers. For a beautiful Valentine’s Day outfit that screams class and style simultaneously, pair with a plain black (cashmere) polo, sky high Louboutin’s and a supermini tote. Whether you’re getting dressed up to inject some Valentine’s passion into an old relationship or are still a few dates into that blissful honeymoon period, this exquisite Valentine’s Day outfit won’t fail. Trust.

Black Lace Up Heeled Sandals by Ann Demeulemeester: Fierce yet oh so stylish the killer designs of Ann Demeulemeester bring an unmistakable touch of masculinity to any Valentine’s Day outfit. Although their tonal stitching and no-nonsense lace will toughen up even the floatiest of midi’s, their exquisitely high heel and delicate open toe will still create a Valentine’s outfit designed for even the most sophisticated of dates. There’s nothing that screams versatility more than black leather ankle boots and this pair can be paired with everything from wide-leg trousers and pussy-bow blouses to joggers and a hoody, not to mention both the denim and leather possibilities. Purchase not just for a Valentine’s Day outfit, but a chic wardrobe staple for life.

Black Lace Logo Bra by Versace Underwear: Don the beautifully intricate lace of Versace Underwear for unforgettable Valentine’s Day style. Wear beneath an unbuttoned shirt or mesh body for an alluring sense of dark romance mixed together with that unmistakable air of casual cool that, when combined, make the perfect Valentine’s Day outfit. Alternatively, dare to bare completely, teaming the bra with high waisted trousers and a fur jacket or even a pleated skirt and heeled ankle boots. The bra’s bold logo band works well to break up the feminine design of its beautiful black lace, meaning it’s ideal to dress up as evening wear or dress down for effortless, Valentine’s chic.

Trench Coat by Acne Studios: The classic trench is here to stay and continues to be huge in the 2019 fashion sphere. With so many different styles and variations on this timeless classic, there’s one for every outfit. Test the waters in this stunning, oversized Acne Studios variation, bringing a quirky twist to the trench’s traditional structures, whilst keeping definition with a double belted buckle. Let the coat hang open on top of skinny Levi’s, a satin blouse and classic court shoe for an outside the box daytime date, or close and clinch at the waist with bare legs and a camisole underneath for a Valentine’s Day outfit designed for an evening date.
