For a few people, Valentine's Day is kind of a big deal though we all know that it's a typical marketing gimmick by all the brands out there to lure their customers and clients to spend money on various products and services. Gradually by the years, these Valentine's Day celebrations became quite a mandatory thing for people who are in love and relationships. Apart from everything, looking beautiful to one's partners has become another major aspect to mark the day of love.
Of course, looks do matter and one expects one's partner to look appealing and alluring to spend Valentine's Day in the prettiest way. Some overdo and some underdo their looks and a few people mess up their whole outfits by thinking too much or by wearing too many layers. Instead of pre-planning too much and going spontaneous, one must maintain a balance to focus on the outfit and in collecting all the required clothing and accessories to put an outfit together for the day! To make this happen, one must keep a few things in mind while preparing to surprise their partners with their outfits and looks of Valentine's Day!
Red is the color of Love, and that's the very reason why we see all the cities and towns painted in red during the season of love. It makes people notice Valentine's week and get ready to shop for their outfits and gifts for their partners. Don't look like a full by sporting the color Red completely from tip to toe. Simply, don't present yourself as a store that is on sale for Valentine's Day! Instead, compliment your look by carrying at least one or two pieces of red to complete your look.
Be it a bow tie, a handbag, red suede shoes, red velvet heels, red corset, or just a pair of red stone studs, carry one piece of accessory in red to give your outfit a lovely touch for your valentine's date?
Always keep it simple, classy, sophisticated, and well-approaching, even though you wear a lot of shimmers and glitter on you! Yes, that's possible. Some people like going a little flashy. Instead of being glossy from top to bottom, if you wear a red shimmery dress, complete the look with matte heels and minimal makeup. If you wear a simple fabric dress, then you can wear shining boots and blood-red lipstick. Your look depends on how beautifully you balance your attire.
If you are going out for dinner, keep your outfit dark and choose something to blend with the night, especially the dark shades. Similarly, if you plan out for the day, wear bright clothes so that you can make your day shine bright under the sun and can get along with the early moods of Valentine's Day. Contrasting looks are out of the trend. Embrace the day and night with the hues of light and dark.
Regardless of your gender, instead of going empty-handed, buy a chocolate box or a bouquet, or a gift, not as a mandatory thing to do but to make you look charming. These typical valentine things act as your extra accessories for your outfit and if you can spend a lot on your outfit, why can't you spend a bit more to gift your partner?
Colors of Red, Snow-white, Forest green, gold, lilac, maroon, silver, yellow, compliment the season well. As February still falls under the holiday season and the end of the winter, these colors make you look adorable regardless of your skin tones and complexions.
Choose comfortable clothing and medium heel size footwear, so that you don't end up feeling messy during your date. Outfits aren't all about looking chic and high fashion like models. The more you give less effort to your Valentine's outfit, the better you look. Stressing out regarding your outfit, surely make you flip things up!
Invest your good time in decking up yourself with your makeup products. Always remember, it's not Halloween. So, try to keep your makeup a bit low-key. Nude looks and blush looks are the most preferable makeup regimes for valentine's day. If you are a guy, you can still use a bit of foundation, concealer and dab some compact to look smart enough.
Makeup is one aspect that allows you to be you according to your sexual orientation. If you are an effeminate gay or a drag queen or a trans woman or a crossdresser, you can go a bit flashy with your eye-shadows and lip-stains. But try to balance it out with your outfit and please don't overstep.
No matter what kind of person you are, always try to be you and also try to be new. You can always experiment with a sophisticated and elegant look, to look different in the eyes of your partner. Who knows you may make him or her fall in love with you even more? Just go opposite to your regular dressing. If you wear oversized pastel clothes, get into skin-fit flashy clothes for your Valentine's date. Identically, if you wear short clothes, try covering up from top to bottom to unleash that new person in you. It surely does wonders.
The fragrance does matter. Right from the exotic bath scrubs to the perfume you wear before stepping out of your home, make sure everything belongs to the same flavor. If you are considering to carry fruit fragrance, stick to all the fruit-flavored products, if you want to carry fresh fragrance, choose ocean breeze or mint products, if you want to keep it classy, just go with floral fragrances. Bath scrubs, body washes, body mists, body lotions, body butter, perfumes, every single aspect adds extra fragrance to your body and make you look appealing to the core and elevate your outfit and your presence.
Maintain yourself properly, both oral and intimate hygiene. Spend some time to floss, and freshen up your mouth. Carry strong mints with you. Invest in spas and waxing sessions to glamourize yourself. Yeah, it takes a little effort to look amazing on your valentine's date. The outfit is not only about outer appearance, you need to look good in your bare skin too! Clean up down there, who knows you may get some action post date?
Just because you are a guy, it doesn't mean you portray your body as a place of Jungle. Stubble everything up, trim your beard, or carry a clean-shaven look, but don't appear like a caveman with messed up hair and beard. Your grooming does matter to make you look presentable on your date. Though your girlfriend or boyfriend see you daily, try looking new on V-day, make it special by taking some special efforts to groom yourself!
These are the few basic things, every guy and girl must consider while getting ready to attend for one's valentine's date! If you want to make a day memorable, you need to look dashing and breath-taking to make sure your partner never forget how you look and how beautifully you can present yourself! Love is not about looks though, but you need to look lovable!
