Though I know the photos speak about a birthday celebration as these was taken at an Aunt’s BIG 50th Birthday Celebration, this post really is about the upcoming Valentine’s Day celebration, which is just really around the corner.
I know some men are either scrambling their way to find the perfect gift right now while others will leave it to a last minute search. When it comes to what to wear however, there’s no better time to start thinking of what you’re going to wear on Valentines. Yes, the red and the pink are the usual picks for Valentines but don’t neglect one thing you may already have in your wardrobe – the Little Black Dress. It could be a shift, a fit and flare, made of lace, leather or any other beautiful fabric, the LBD is definitely one sure fire way to get prettied up for your Valentines date.
No matter which colour you pick, the end goal is create a romantic look – soft make-up, not too perfect, not too done up hair. Opt for a softer palette this time and save the more dramatic smoky eye for the red carpet or fashion week. You want to look natural, not severe. The boho princess or boho chic look is a no fail way to achieve that pretty romance in the air kind of look. Think adding flowers or dainty accessories to your hair and you’re set!
