Stressed over finding the perfect outfit to wear for Valentine’s Day? Never fear for an Arum Lilea Guide is near.
To begin, make sure you are comfortable. If you’re going on a date, chances are you don’t know where you are going so you need to be prepared for anything. Don’t wear your shortest, tightest, hottest dress if you think you might be going for a 5 course meal. By the end of dinner you will be regretting your tight choice. It will also be problematic if you’re surprised with a picnic and have that embarrassing realisation that your dress is too short to sit on the ground. Rather be safe & pick something with a little more length and room to move around.
It’s a special day so why not play with a different texture of fabric. Bring out your tulle skirt or try something with a little bit of lace for an added feminine touch. I’m a real traditionalist when it comes to colours on Valentine’s Day. I love to see red everywhere. This doesn’t mean you need to dress head-to-toe in it if you find it too bold. A red belt, shoes or red nails are great ways of incorporating the colour into your outfit. These are also perfect ways of jazzing up your perfect LBD.
Personally, I love heels. My go-to outfit will always have heels however I have learnt from experience (my unpredictable boyfriend who loves surprising me) that they are not always practical. A good idea would be to pack flats in your bag if your date is anything like mine.
What about make-up? Less is more ladies. Men don’t like it when you leave your whole face print on their shirt. Red lips might be a very tempting way of adding the colour to your outfit, but you will regret it when your Valentine’s smooch leaves you both looking like vampires. A touch of foundation, blush, winged eyeliner, lots of mascara and a great lipgloss will have you looking gorgeous in no time.
As for your hair, leave it loose, add some waves and you’re ready for a perfect night out.
I hope these tips help! Let me know what you think
