Whatever your relationship status is today, there’s no denying that V-day is the perfect excuse to put on your cutest outfit no matter what you're doing. Be it a romantic dinner for two, hanging out with your friends, or are just planning to binge watch Showmax when you get home (same, girl). Here are outfit ideas for every kind of Valentine's Day:
The Showmax Date
In this economy, it's completely understandable why you're staying in but that doesn't mean you have to look boring. A stay in Valentine's Day is the perfect time to pick up some adorable red and white pyjamas. Maybe a matching silk gown, socks and doek if you're cold. Then go in the kitchen and spoil yourself with your favourite dinner. You could have a cute evening, just like Blue Mbombo.
The Art Heaux Date
If the idea of a dinner date is not special enough for you and your bae, try going to check out a show at the theatre or art exhibit at a gallery. A date tied to the arts needs an outfit to match the beautiful scenery. Go for textures that get you noticed like silk and sequins, and sophisticated silhouettes that flatter your body like these high-waist pants on Linda Mtoba.
The Dinner Date
Those of you lucky ones who actually managed to get a reservation somewhere tonight, a nice dinner is the prefect way to spend your Valentines Day. A dinner look is about being as alluring as possible from across the table. Pick a dress that flatters your shape with emphasis on the neck, chest and shoulders. Toss on a red lip for emphasis then you're ready. Bonus points if you get something in lace aka the sexist fabric out there - this look on Kefilwe Mabote is perfect inspiration.
The Squad Date
Let the sisterhoods prevail tonight because who really needs men to have fun anyway? If you and your girls are going out together, you know what would have your instagrams popping? Have fun. All the girlies should come in their boldest baddest (as in best) outfit that makes them feel beautiful and powerful. Then pose for a group photo like Bonang, Boity, Lorna and Pinky.
