Valentine’s Day special: Last minute style tips to stand out
You usually dress to impress your partner on Valentine’s Day, but what if the two of you together want to grab eyeballs and be the most stylish couple in town? All you need to do is to match outfits with your beau or make a style statement by picking something wow-worthy. Here are some quick outfit inspiration for you to follow to glam up this day. Take note.
1. Gingham gang
While most of the couples will colour coordinate to celebrate the day of love, take the coordination game a step further and go for matching prints, like this couple in the photo, who are sporting gingham prints. While the boy is wearing the checkered look head-to-toe, the girl has layered her flirty, flowy dress with a gingham print jacket.
2. Sturdy chic
This zippered bomber in red renders a sturdy, chic vibe, and your girlfriend can compliment your style with a red net tulle skirt teamed with a cropped bomber featuring dramatic puff sleeves.
3. High octane glamour
Add elegance to your look with this full-sleeved red gown that accentuates your curves perfectly. Let the draped gown with appliqué work on the sleeves take centrestage. Keep your accessories and makeup minimal. Your beau can dress up in a wine-coloured corduroy suit and ditch his shirt to raise the hotness quotient. A gold choker can be a quirky pick for guys who believe in experimenting when it comes to fashion.
4. Flower power
If you’re a fan of pleats, this look is certainly going to get all your admiration. This pleated cape top has been styled with a pair of black palazzos and a pair of statement rings to finish off the look. Your man can complement your look in a bomber with floral appliqué work, a sheer red shirt, and a pair of trousers that matches with the bomber.
5. Mix and match
As you gear up for your date, let your beau opt for tonal dressing, such as dressing up in red, from head-to-toe. A striped red suit with a striped red shirt is ideal for a V-Day date. You can be a rebel by just adding a hint of red to your look, like the model in the picture, who is wearing a double toned half-sleeved jacket with a cropped top and a pair of white palazzos.
