Ah Valentine’s Day… Love it or loath it, there’s no denying that it’s one of the most romantic days of the year. And because at Ariana Clothing, we love any excuse to get our glad rags on, we have to admit, we’re on the side of love. So prepare for cupid’s arrow and dress according to wherever date scenario you’re facing this year.
Grabbing a quick bite to eat at lunchtime with your other half requires an outfit that will work for office and café. While typically daytime date dressing tends to veer a little more on the casual side, you may be keen to make more of an effort for Valentine’s Day. In this situation, allow your top to do all the talking. Pair a pretty top with classic fitted black trousers for subtle statement style that will see you effortlessly through the day.
Romantic meal for two
When it comes to a romantic meal for two, there are typically two options; pull out all the stops and opt for that figure flattering little black dress, or sway with tradition and choose a classic red number. Undoubtedly, red is the colour of Valentine’s Day and we have to say, we love it! There’s something undeniably romantic about red and with its ability to flatter all skin tones, it definitely ticks all the right boxes. If you long to stand out from the crowd, we say do things a little differently! Rather than choosing a block of red, opt for a print for an unexpected twist.
At the movies
Whether you choose a movie at home, or head to the cinema, an evening spent watching a classic rom-com is the perfect Valentine’s Day date for movie addicts. The key here is to strike the perfect balance between comfort and style. Thankfully, our signature bodycon silhouette flawlessly meets this demand. Carefully placed panels ensure your figure is flattered, while three-quarter or long sleeves will keep you warm while we await the arrival of spring. If you’re heading out, dress yours up with high heels and statement jewellery, or if you’re staying indoors, ditch the heels in favour of flats or ankle boots for an always winning look.
Action packed night
For the thrill seekers who just can’t sit still, an activity date requires a hard working outfit. Whether it’s a round of crazy golf, or a romantic stroll around the park, layers are key. Going between indoors and out requires the adding and removal of layers to match your current temperature. Whether you choose trousers and a floaty top, or a dress, ensure your outerwear is chic as you never know where your spontaneous side will bring you.
And if Valentine’s Day just doesn’t do it for you, that’s okay! This year, why not turn your attention to Galentine’s Day instead?! Falling on February 13th, Galentine’s Day isn’t anti Valentine’s, but rather focuses on female relationships. So if you choose to spend the day with your best friends, opt for a classic dress, which will see you through every fashion scenario.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
