Whether you’re hanging out during the day or headed out to a bangin’ party at night, your girls are the best dates. Who needs a Valentine when you could have a Galentine? Am I right ladies? With that being said, you want to look good. Besides, girls dress for girls not guys anyway so why not step up your Valentine’s Day outfit with your girls. Below are four, fun outfit ideas to wear with your girls no matter what you guys decide to do. If you end up staying in with Netflix and a sleepover, I’d get the red PJ’s out.
Valentine’s Day is approaching fast and we all need something appropriate to wear for our dates out with a potential love interest, our current partners, or our friends, so in DenimBlog tradition, Jennifer, Jonathan and I have put together an outfit collage which we love for a Valentine’s look. There’s two ladies outfits here and one look for the guys. We hope you enjoy Sunday!
For my look, I wanted to do something feminine and girly, but still really stylish and in tune with the colour palette of Valentine’s Day. I went with a pair of lilac coloured skinny jeans instead of pink or red, but opted to go with grey in the form a ACNE wool sweater and a Warehouse sleeveless jacket to make it feel mature. To keep with the purple theme, I chose the Rebecca Minkoff Mini MAB tote and then added some pink in with this MAC pink lipstick and this O.P.I pink nail polish. Now when it comes to shoes, I gave two options: Sergio Rossi boots for those who want it a bit more tough and sleek or Jimmy Choo glitter pumps if you want something more fancy and stand out. I finally finished it off with some pearl earrings and this gorgeous gold Philosophy pearl ring.
For my look, I wanted to take the hearts motif that is associated with Valentine’s Day as my inspiration. I chose a few seasons back from Burberry (which you can find an alternative here) to pair with a pair of the Paige Croft Skinny in Black Shadow. To help keep a smart feel going, I added a peacoat from Saint Laurent and the Hedi boots. As time is key during a Valentine’s date, to finish the look off I chose a watch by Nixon.
For my weekend going out look this week, I wanted to do something edgy and tougher that can easily transition from daytime wear to nighttime appropriate. For this one, I switched out the boots which would work for day and added some heels and a red lip. So, what have I chosen?
I went with a classic pair of grey jeans as I think they make the perfect base for black leather jackets. I chose the MiH Jeans Bridge High Rise Skinny in Grey as they have that perfect light wash which was ideal for the outfit. I then went with a cream Oasis Sweater to make it smarter and layered a Boda Skins Leather Biker Jacket over the top. I love how tough and fierce this jacket is! To keep it glam, I chose some Christian Louboutin So Kate in Black and finished it off with a Sella & Dot Ring, some Ray-Ban Wayfarer Sunglasses and a pop of colour with the NARS Red Lipstick. I would definitely wear something like this myself. Do you like it?
For my ‘Weekend Look’ I decided to go for the MOTHER Stunner Ankle Fray in Graffiti Girl. I have been looking at these quite a bit lately and just love the details of them. Not just because of the wash, but the smaller details of them, like the button-fly and high rise. Just those little details help lend a new feel to a relaxed look for a day out, like this one here.
When I was thinking of the look, a band tee was the first thing that came to mind to pair with them. This Metallica shirt is a great piece to pair with as you can wear it tucked in or over if the jeans are fitted or size up on the jeans for a slouchy low slung style and still keeps the cool fluid vibe. Then to keep that vibe going, I chose the Balanciaga boots. These boots have become timeless just like a pair of Dr. Martens. They enhance the essence of a look rather than take away. Then to finish the look off, I wanted to keep the accessories in the same spirit with a Saint Laurent bag and 3.1 Phillip Lim sunglasses. Which look would you go for, fitted or slouchy?
