On Valentine’s Day a dash of sartorial elegance can definitely perk up things and enliven one’s prospects. Still, if you are in a fix about the clothes to wear, then here’s some help from the students of Pearl Academy of Fashion.

Following are their recommendations for a memorable day. In case you are planning an elaborate dinner then wearing formal clothes is a good option.

Formal wear for guys
Team a tight filled, slim fit jeans with a well ironed formal white or pink shirt. Complete the look with a patterned or striped tie and throw a corduroy jacket or a blazer over it.

Formal wear for girls
Take your pick from balloon skirts or flared ones and sport them with a T-shirt with puffed sleeves under a ribboned corset. A long overcoat over this attire will not only give it a glamorous effect but also shield you from the cold.

Also, take out some extra time to co-ordinate your shrugs, leggings and mufflers with your look.

Weight issues
Worried about showing flab instead of looking fab? Black is your saviour. While guys can sport a formal black shirt over chinos or khakis, girls can go in for long straight skirts with loose torso tops or kurtis… and don’t forget the pencil heels!

Make the most of the junk season and throw on your beads and necklaces. Belts with heart-shaped embellishments go well for the die-hard romantics. Pearl necklaces make you look in sync with international fashion trends.

Guys needn’t worry as ear studs, cuff links, silver bracelets and bandanas go very well with your look. Take your pick for the best way to accessorise your look and charm your lady love and her friends with your new-found confidence.

If you are as tired of red and black for Valentine’s Day as we are here are some refreshing changes for your colour palette. Girls can go ga-ga with pink and peach.

Other colours would be beige and off-white. Guys can be themselves in blue, white, corduroy and khaki colours. Being well dressed is only half the job done. For the genuinely love struck, clothes are only incidental to the occasion. Long after the last flicker of the candle, they will be as hopelessly in love as ever.
