Celebrating your love or friendship often means dining out, a romantic tête-à-tête, a walk in nature or a night in the clubs. From distressed denim to a long-sleeved dress, here are 5 looks in pictures that will go with your Valentine’s Day activity.
SHORT SKIRT AND TURTLENECK
If, for you, Valentine’s Day is synonymous with a one-on-one restaurant meal, we’ve got the outfit you need — a short skirt and a turtleneck. First, pick a short skirt that adds a refined, feminine touch to your everyday look. You’ll find lots of styles at Simons, in velvet, cotton or denim. For the season, match it with darker tights and a cotton turtleneck sweater. For a sexier, more in-your-face look, drop the tights and try some tall boots instead. Go for it!
QUILTED COAT AND POMPOM TUQUE
Whether you’re alone or with someone, if you’re celebrating Valentine’s Day outdoors, you’ll definitely need something to keep you warm. To be comfortable without forgetting your fashion side, here are two items to add to your wardrobe — a quilted coat and a pompom tuque. Go for a black or navy coat, available at Sports Experts or Simons, and match it perfectly with the tuque of your choice. H&M has a large selection of very fashionable tuques, in patterns, monochromes or lots of colour. Finally, if your budget allows, head to Browns and complete your look with a nice pair of Pajar or Sorel boots.
CASUAL SWEATER AND JOGGERS
For those relaxed, chocolate fondue-type dates, opt for comfort. And for that, trust us, casual pants mean sexy! Just match them with a top with a bit of décolleté and you’re set. If you go to Garage, Forever 21 or La Vie en Rose, you’ll find the perfect button-up sweater for your romantic soirée.
DISTRESSED DENIM AND OVERSIZED WOOL SWEATER
Our fave! While it’s perfect for a romantic Valentines outing, distressed denim is also just right for a dinner with friends, a day of shopping or even a Friday at work. Always fashionable, it adds some feminine character to your dress style. But unlike other denim, it doesn’t go with everything! For winter, nothing matches it better than an oversized sweater. Depending on what you’re doing for Valentines, go for a lighter coloured wool number to set off the grungy denim look, or even feel free to slip on a shirt or blouse under your sweater.
Here’s the oversized sweater we’ve got a thing for.
If your Valentines evening is going to be spent with friends, in a club or one of your best-loved eateries at Les Promenades Gatineau, take a chance on a long-sleeved dress. With its sash-tie waist, velvety fabric and V-neck, we’ve got to admit that this dark ochre item from Dynamite is the one we prefer by far.
So ladies, now that the “what to wear” question is settled, all that’s left is for us to wish you a Happy Valentines Day! Make the most of it!
