Valentine’s Day is a couple of days away and if you haven’t yet got your outfit sorted, we have you covered! Each of us here have put together a look that we love and would wear on the day, featuring two women’s outfits and one men’s look. What are your plans?
Valentine’s Day is one of my favourites as I love any excuse to dress up, but it’s a day that you get to share with your loved one and spend quality time together. So, for my outfit, I chose a pair of black Helmut Lang leather leggings for the base of the look, paired with a simple white shirt and a Target Atlantic Burgundy blazer layered over the top. To keep it classy, I went for the Louboutin Pigalle for heels and a Jimmy Choo nude clutch to brighten it up a little bit. Then for the jewellery, I chose a shark tooth necklace and a feather ring, both in gunmetal, and finally a dark silver chain bracelet. This is definitely something I would wear!
For this year, I wanted to do a look that was casual, clean and something that I would wear myself on the holiday. As I am not big on color, I thought the best way to incorporate red into my look was with the red Stan Smith sneakers by Adidas. They are a smart chic looking pair of shoes that can easily be dressed up and the red is probably my favorite pair.
For the look, I chose a pair of the Citizens of Humanity Avedon in Axel because the deep black pair are ones that I truly love, personally. I then chose a printed shirt by Zanerobe to add a bit of contrast and life to the combination that a solid black shirt couldn’t add. Then to finish the look off, a watch by Tsovet to help you keep track of time. How many of you have plans for the holiday?
For my Valentine’s Day look, I styled an outfit around these Frame Le High Flare jeans. I chose this silk blouse from 3.1 Philip Lim because the draping is very elegant and feminine. Next, I chose these studded Valentino pumps because I always think a pointy toe style looks best peeking out of the flare leg. For accessories, I chose this Lulu Guinnes lips clutch because I love how cheeky it is and perfect for Valentine’s day without being too serious. Lastly, I finished with a bit of traditional red in these Oscar de la Renta earrings.
No matter what trends are in, you can’t go wrong with just a simple white t shirt, great fitting jeans and some high top Chuck Taylors. It’s so classic and simple, yet still something that I really enjoy seeing out. So that is what I went for when styling The Legging Ankle in 11 Years Dreamer from the new Alexa Chung for AG line.
For the t shirt, I wanted something that had a good drape to it and this Rag & Bone one has just that. Then of course for the shoes, a pair of classic black high top Chuck Taylors. You just can’t go wrong pairing those shoes with any look. They literally work with everything. Then to elevate the look a bit, a necklace by Margiela to finish it off. It is a simple piece that adds just enough to the everyday look to make it feel more.
What are your plans for this weekend? How many of you will be sticking with a simple look like this?
For my weekend going out look this time, I wanted to do something more classic and on a monochrome wave length. I usually add a lot of colour to my outfits, but this time I wanted to keep it simple.
I own the Citizens of Humanity Rocket in London Calling and I absolutely love them, so for this combination I styled them with a Topshop Longline Sleeveless Ponte Jacket which will be layered over the Chanel Cropped Shirt.
For the accessories and shoes, I chose these Christian Louboutin Pigalle heels to add length to your legs and then finished it off with an Ice Pearl and Diamond Ring and a Lolas Love Double Pearl Ring just to give it a little edge.
This is definitely a look that I would wear myself and actually do plan on wearing something similar soon! What do you think of it?
Boyfriend jeans are more widely worn in the Spring and Summer months as they become a staple due to the lighter washes and looser fit, making the heat more easily bearable, however, they can be worn just as well during the Winter too! For those of you, like myself, from a colder climate who get a really cold Winter, you don’t have to put your boyfriend jeans away for 6 months of the year! I’ve rounded up some of the coolest blogger outfits for Wintertime boyfriend jeans looks as well as put my own outfits together for you to get some inspiration from.
When wearing a lot of layers though, the one tip I will give you is to pick a slimmer fitting boyfriend, either a skinny tapered boyfriend or one that’s more straight than baggy. The reason for this is because you will be wearing a lot of fabric layers so you need to keep the proportions in balance. If you have baggy jeans and baggy layers at the top, there’s a risk of looking sloppy and overwhelmed, especially for those who are more petite! Enjoy it!
