Preparing for the Perfect Valentine’s Night Valentine’s Day will soon be upon us and whether you’re planning a quiet dinner for two at home or a romantic night on the tiles, you’ll want to glam it up just a little bit. It doesn’t matter if you’re on the dating scene with a new man or it’s your partner of decades that you’ll be sharing it with, something about good old February 14th makes us all want to look and feel great. Here’s some inspiration to get you started.
Get your Undies right
Regardless of how risqué or otherwise your evening might be, getting your underwear right is essential. Now, this is one occasion when you want to be sure to be matching right ladies? The good news is that even Shapewear looks utterly glamorous these days so you can get any extra inches under control without compromising on style.
Hopefully you’ll be treated to a romantic dinner for two on the big night so you’ll want to be stylish as well as comfortable. A jersey dress is a great solution to that. Choose one that will skim your curves rather than cling and a v-neck or cross over style is the most figure flattering of all. The Zig Zag Print Dress is a great choice that can be dressed up or down. The Printed Skirt Maxi Dress is another glamorous choice, particularly if you’re heading out to a restaurant.
Assuming that you’re not lucky enough to be gifted some fabulous diamonds by your Valentine, you’ll probably have to choose your own jewellery for the evening. If you’re wearing a patterned dress, then keep your jewellery fairly simple. If you’ve opted for a plain dress then you can be a little bolder with your jewellery. Choose a beaded necklace for sparkle and detail. Long necklaces are great for drawing the eye to the centre of the body and creating the illusion of a more slender frame.
If you’re heading out on the town then the chances are you’re going to need a cover up. There is nothing glamorous about goose bumps! There are some great womens cardigans available including the Frill Detail Shrug which would make an elegant additional layer. A chic scarf also works a treat whether it’s worn around the neck or as a wrap. For chillier evenings, add a touch more glamour with the Animal Twist Faux Fur Scarf.
