The Ultimate Style Guide: Valentine’s Day Edition

Three looks guaranteed to go the distance

You don’t have to be a romantic to celebrate Valentine’s Day. Whether you’re going on a fancy dinner date or enjoying a night out with friends, show them you care by dressing up for the occasion.

The key to a memorable Valentine’s Day is preparation. We’re going to make sure you are ahead of the game this year, starting with the most important factor – your outfit. What you wear depends on what you’re doing. We’ve put three outfits together so that you can look and feel your best, no matter where the night takes you. 

The Dinner Date

If you’re planning a special dinner date, you already know what you have to do – suit up! This fitted, plain black suit will set you up for a swanky night. Paired with a buttoned-down white shirt and premium tan loafers, this classic outfit will always be in fashion. Top off the look and add your own personal touch with a pair of sunglasses. 

The Group Date

Going on a group date with other couples or some friends takes a lot of pressure off, and this outfit will do the same. Prepare to look your best with this low-key camel suit and emerald T-shirt combo. The subtle pop of colour will make you stand out in the crowd whilst taming the formal suit attire. Finish with on-trend loafers or a pair of casual sneakers and you’ll be ready for dinner, dancing and all of the fun in between. 

The Casual Date 

If you’re looking to keep it low-key, go for patterns and sandals. We love the idea of a casual Valentine’s Day picnic – whether it’s romantic or just for fun, being outdoors and enjoying the summer sun is what it’s all about. This light and airy viscose shirt matched with tapered joggers delivers a cool warm-weather look so that you can comfortably enjoy the day’s outdoor festivities. 

One thing’s for sure, if you arrive at any of your plans in one of these outfits, half of the job is already done. Shop the looks online or visit any of our stores to find your perfect match. Now all you have to do is practice those conversation starters in the mirror, pick up some flowers and enjoy your Valentine’s Day.
