As if figuring out what to wear everyday
isn't a daunting task, putting an outfit together for Valentine's Day
makes life even more difficult. Cupid has it cheap and easy; the most
he has to worry about wearing is a bow and arrow. Whether it's a serious
relationship, the first date, or in-between, Step 1 in deciding how to
get dressed for your Valentine's date is to know what has been arranged
for the evening. Once the plans are set, its time to search your closet
for clothes that spell l-o-v-e. Who says you have to know French to speak
the language of love this Valentine's Day?
If your evening will
be filled with food, flowers, and wine glasses, slip into something that
will make you, and him, feel all warm inside.
- Pair a red off-the-shoulder top or sheer tunic with a slim-fitting
- For a style that is sweet yet sexy, trade the skirt for leather,
or pleather, pants and wear with a lace shirt.
- If you opt to wear all black, add a hint of rouge by tying a red
sash around your waist, or put touch-ups in a pink bag.
||Bright Idea: Red has usually been the color of
choice on Valentine's Day, and retail stores are sure to stock up
on it around the first week of February. If pink has already made
its mark on your wardrobe, consider the lighter hue as an option.
Incorporating either of these colors to an outfit, even accessories,
will give it that extra Valentine's spark.
