Only five days and it´s already Valentine´s! It doesn´t matter if you´re single, dating or in a relationship, the day of hearts is worth celebrating, after all, the best love you can ever have is your love for yourself (and by self-love I don´t mean ego-centric kind of love, but the love that you so deserve to have).
One outfit that I´m considering wearing for Valentine´s is a skirt. So I thought to create a blog post featuring three ways to wear a skirt to a date – whether it´s a date with a lover or with girlfriends.
Long Sleeve Blouse + Pencil Skirt
It´s a desk to date ensemble for girls who have no more time to change after five. If heavy traffic or early date schedule leaves you with no time to switch outfits, then opt for a look that´s work appropriate but also feminine and romantic enough for work.
I recommend a knee-length pencil skirt; you go for a lace pencil skirt or a bandage one. Team it up with a long sleeve blouse, you can opt for a top with lovely features such as ruching or bow details.
I recommend pastel or bright colors for your ensemble; avoid dark powerful colors just for today in order to keep things feminine and romantic.
Oh, but this year´s Valentine´s day is weekend! Well, some girls work on Saturdays, just in case.
Heart Print Blouse + Full Skirt
Take advantage of prints for your Valentine´s date. I´m loving this heart-print top which is not only fabulous, it´s also totally affordable. Partner it with a red full or flared skirt for an entirely full of heart romantic get-go.
If heart print isn´t your thing, or if you can´t find one, you can also settle for a nice white top instead, or something pastel such as beige or nude, to complete your striking red skirt.
Polka Dot Top + Flounce Skirt
Because I´m a lover of polka dot, I find the dotted button down top and white flounce skirt tandem really gorgeous.
I found this solid flounce skirt a nice pick to recreate the look, but if you have something in knee-length, the better. The flounce or trumpet silhouette is more dramatic and elegant if the length us around the knee.
Go leggy by polishing the look with a pair of nude high heels.
