Love is in the air with Valentine’s Day just around the corner, and for a lot of people, that means it’s time to start prepping the ultimate date-night outfit! Stylist Erica Wark helps viewers with their date-look wardrobe conundrums. Check out these four Valentine’s Day outfits below and where to buy them!
LOOK 1: SPICE THINGS UP
Looking for a sensible outfit with a bit of sass and sex appeal? Well, look no further! Animal print instantly ups the sass factor in any look! This snakeskin dress from Addition Elle has a flattering cut, with a long skirt and sleeves—perfect for a Canadian Valentine’s Day! The best part? It’s lightweight, which makes this dress an amazing layering piece. Pair with a leather biker jacket and heel sock boots for the perfect ensemble!
LOOK 2: VACATION DATE
Looking to celebrate Valentine’s Day outside of Canada? A jumpsuit is perfect for your trip to the Caribbean! Not only are jumpsuits easy to pack, but they are extremely versatile for those who like to re-wear outfits on vacation! Pair a red jumpsuit with a flat sandal or a pair of sneakers for a quick, dinner-date look. And for anyone stuck in Canada on Valentine’s Day, just slip on a turtleneck underneath and wear with a pair of sock boots!
LOOK 3: OUTDOOR DATE
Cold-weather dates are definitely trickier, but there’s no need to sacrifice style, especially for your special someone. Think in terms of LAYERS – that way, you’ll stay warm outside, and can easily take off the layers once you sit down for dinner. One of the best layering pieces is a lightweight down vest from Uniqlo. They’re thin, warm, and easily foldable. You can also dress up with a stylish, tailored dress shirt underneath!
LOOK 4: ADD SOME COLOUR
For those who feel like they always wear black – no problem! A date night is the best way to break out of your fashion comfort zone! This bright pink suit from ZARA is a gorgeous shade of pink and the perfect colour for Valentine’s Day. The best part about this suit is the versatility of wearing the blazer and pants separately. Ease your way into this colour by pairing the blazer with a pair of black skinnies, or the pants with a black turtleneck. And of course – don’t forget the bling to complete your date night outfit!
