Different Looks for Different Activities
Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and if someone special asked you out on a date, you’re beginning to think up different outfit ideas. Your outfit should be dependent on your style and the activity that you’ll be involved in. It’s also important to choose items that make you feel confident so you’ll have no problem letting your personality be the main attraction.
Some girls who love to try new things and stay active may be venturing out into the cold on their Valentine’s Day dates. Whether you’re going for a walk or ice-skating, you need an outfit that will keep you warm and allow you to be active. You don’t want to wear something that will restrict you from enjoying the fun.
Try active wear in a cute color or print. Add a jacket that can double for warmth and style like the longer length jackets that are on-trend this winter. Wear with sleek tennis shoes and you’ll be ready for hiking or just strolling through town to find a new bookstore.
Romantics might like to spend Valentine’s Day going out to eat at a cozy or sentimental restaurant. If you and a date are leaning towards a formal date, then you’ll want to dress up a bit more than normal. Dressing up will increase the romantic vibe of the evening and add some fun to what may be a normal date spot for you.
Dresses are great for this kind of date because they can range from formal to casual and the diversity in styles flatter any body type. If you’re more glam in your daily style, rock a dress with a bold print and if you’re more artsy, then try a dress with an asymmetrical hemline. Other great pieces include a blouse and dark jeans with a bootie. Accessories will take either look to a more formal level when you add statements earrings or a necklace.
If you’re currently in a relationship or a bit of a homebody, you might be more inclined to have a low-key date to celebrate. Although you may just be ordering pizza, having a game night or renting a movie, you can still put thought into your outfit. Ditch the old sweatpants and t-shirt for an outfit that has a little more style. However, you don’t have to ditch the comfort!
Wear a graphic or printed tee that shows a bit of your personality and interests. Wear joggers or a pair of your favorite jeans that you’ve worn-in to perfection. A simple hairstyle like a ponytail or bun can be casual or styled. Create a look that helps you to feel good about yourself and distinguishes between a special occasion and a typical hang out.
No matter which type of date you’re going on, remember to wear something that shows who you are. Just because it’s a date doesn’t mean you have to try and look the way you think a guy might expect you to look. Stay true to yourself and know that ultimately your outfit and the way you’re styled should compliment the natural beauty of your inner and outer self.
