Bring on the chocolates, the gifts and the champers! Valentine’s day is just under a month away, which means we are entering unchartered waters of planning out the most romantic day of the year.
Not all dates have to be grand – a lunch at a local bistro or a warm coffee to go for a walk in the park is a lovely way to celebrate Valentine’s without all the fuss. The best thing about this kind of dates is that they don’t require much prep at all. Throw on something chic yet casual like a dress or a blazer and you’re good to go. It’s a perfect solution for the busy mammas and the working girls. Same formula works wonderfully for after-work dates – find something that doesn’t break the office dress code but simultaneously will make your crush blush.

For traditionalists, nothing can top an evening of fine wining and dining. Truth be told, it’s a gold standard of dates for a reason – candles, music, delicious food and the merlot buzz. Nights like these are designed to make you googly-eyed for your significant other all over again. Regardless of whether you are chasing the atmosphere in the fanciest restaurant in town or creating it yourselves by staying in for the night, you should wear something you feel beautiful but still comfortable wearing. Our recommendation would be opting for a loose fitting, flowy silhouette for that understated sexy look (that still allows you to have that desert or even two if you want).

DANCING THE NIGHT AWAY
If you are the person who’d swap candle-lit table for a strobe-lit dance floor in a heartbeat, our guess is you also just don’t do boring clothes. Life’s too short, right!?? Let the passion you radiate reflect on your style too and shine in head-to-toe sequins or go for a big, bold, ballroom-worthy look! You’ll look mesmerising and oh so fun when you move, guaranteeing your date will not be able to resist giving you a spin around the floor.

Who says Valentine’s are only fun when you’ve got a SO and a bouquet of roses waiting for you? Case-in-point: GALENTINE’S DAY. Celebrated on the 13th of February, Galentine’s day is becoming a bigger holiday each year. On this day it is all about celebrating with your girlfriends, the power of female friendship and support amongst women. It’s a holiday with a wonderful sentiment and we absolutely believe it should be celebrated – in a glamorous fashion nonetheless.
Deck yourself out in all-over glitz and glam, gather your girls and hit the town for some drinks and a good, long, therapeutic session of girl talk. It is, after all, guaranteed to make you feel good on the actual Valentine’s day too.

Valantine’s or Galentine’s, dinner or disco – a great date is all about doing something that you love with someone you love or at least kind of like. However, rocking the perfect outfit that gets your excitement and confidence through the roof has the power of making it perfect.
How are you spending your Valentine’s/Galentine’s?
Love (always, not just because it’s Valentine’s),
