So fashion month that start this week, is pretty much messing up my schedule for next week (passive aggressive here), so today will be an early Valentine’s Day Post. I’m not much for the day, but I never say no to embrace a day of chocolate and wearing something colorful! Anyways, here are some fashionable fashion ideas for V-day!
If you’re going for red this Valentine’s day, it’s a fun idea to match it with unexpected colors. Red and pink gets more and more time in the spotlight, which is lovely. Especially hot pink and bright red is a genius combination. The two of them are balancing on the fine edge of outdoing each other and making each other look better. 9 out of 10 times it’s the latter! Faded pink, as in dusty rose/beige is also great for matching with red. If you want to go more futuristic and edgy, I suggest going for a bright blue (more towards Klein blue). Emerald green and red is another great combination, going a bit old Hollywood glam.
Wearing something cute?
Is there any other time of the year that – cute – dresses as in feminine, lace, pink/red, floral dresses get more attention than around Valentine? If you’re going for a dress coming with a great dose of sweet, balance it with edgier materials to get a striking look. A faux leather piece is a natural go-to choice, so is also denim and suede. Even though we all love a good sweet tooth in fashion, there’s nothing like adding some salt (edge). Contrasting your outfit is one of the best tricks there is to get a more fashionable look.
Want something different?
If you want something different than the regular cute dresses, there are tons of alternative to choose from. I suggest going for a jumpsuit, a matching set or a pantsuit combination. As I stated in this post, velvet is a trendy and genius option for a jumpsuit. A matching set, like a chic pyjama, is never wrong and a pantsuit done right (like in white) is a fierce look. Instead of opting for the regular pink/red, I’d say that all white is another chic look for Valentine’s and especially a chic choice with red lips! All black is not my melody, but all black in velvet and lace is pretty sophisticated and Vday-worthy! And oh, not to forget, going for something in a fun texture (like below) is always a hit!
And another thing
I mainly (obviously) write about fashion/beauty, but I care about you. So I thought it’d be a great time to declare that Valentine’s day is whatever you decide it to be. Love in any shape should be celebrated each day and not only when covered by commercialism on a specific day. So you’re not more or less loved depending on how many gifts/presents you receive. A declaration of love in form of a note or a simple text is equally, if not more, valuable.
One thing that is often overlooked on Valentine’s day is to celebrate the love to oneself. You are inevitably the most important person in your life, and regardless of how much love you give to others and how little you focus on yourself – you can’t truly pour from an empty cup. So fill yourself with love, confidence and positive thoughts and be as fierce as only you can be! And then, then spread the love! (fully possible one of the cheesiest things I’ve written, but we all love melted cheese and good quotes – or whatever the difference is).
Folks, what are you working for Valentine’s Day? Something special or the regular fierceness? Xx
