What to Wear for Valentines Day – some romantic outfit inspirations

Valentines Day is only really just starting to take off as a ‘holiday’ in Australia. For many years it has passed on my calendar with relative silence as Mr SKM and I like to try and do nice things for each other all through the year, without having to have a special day for it. But the project planner in me also loves any excuse for celebration, decorating and getting dressed up.  So with the upcoming Valentines Day in mind, I sat one evening with a glass of Strawberry wine and planned some Valentines Day outfit inspirations for you.  Just dreamy…

A bit of sparkle and frou frou never goes astray, and besides dressing in Diamond hues may just be a good way to provide a subliminal message. Sequins, lace and faux fur all come together in this ensemble to create a look that is all together feminine and fun, yet still sophisticated. A long frothy skirt to swish about as you walk and chuncky heeled boots to balance the lightness of the cropped lace jacket and sequined bustier.  Practical Princess style.

Sleek, sophisticated and drop dead gorgeous. This is the outfit for a woman who wants to take things to the next level. Blush tones and gentle draping hint at a soft romantic nature, while the animal print bag and rose gold jewelled skull ring give a subtle clue to the wild woman inside. This look is less “you complete me” and much more, ” good choice buddy!”

Here she is, our pretty princess. Gentle, smiling and always in good taste. Velvet bows, soft suede heels and ropes of pink pearls; all brought together with a sharp little blazer, impeccably tailored but not forgetting the importance of pink. She smells of orange blossom and brings a hint of sparkle to the evening with a few key accessories. She is our ingenue, our darling bud, our Disney Princess all grown up.

Of course, Valentines Day isn’t all big dates and evenings on the town. Sometimes you just want to sit indoors and snuggle up your par amour. A little soft cashmere and lacy bustier, the cute and comfortable. Frothy tiered lacy skirt over cheeky boy shorts and lace stockings, feet shod in velvet ballet flats. A simple jewelled head band to keep the hair from your eyes, and an intricate sparkly ring that makes sure to catch the light each time you reach for the strawberries. She can curl up on the couch in her beloved’s arms, a stylish sleeping beauty.

What are your plans for Valentines Day? Going out, staying in or treating yourself to an indulgent night alone with all your favourite flicks? I’d love to know how you celebrate!

  1. Valentine’s is a Monday so we’re out the weekend before. I have a lovely love-heart red late 50s/early 60s style dress and we’re going to a restaurant which is far to expensive for ‘regular’ use, followed by cocktails. :)

    I’m taking husband to a bookshop to buy him a book of his choice as a gift, before. Great idea for a guy who has everything!

      Perdita: Oh that sounds delightful and I love your bookstore idea! :)

  2. I love outfit Nr. 2. Well, I have no Valentine (yet), but I am planning on a wellness day and then a girls night out at a Cocktail Bar. It’s been tradition for a while already :)

  3. I want the black skirt, it´s beautiful :o)

  4. Valentine’s Day in Japan is all about women buying the guys chocolates. I think I’m supposed to buy “obligation” chocolates for the guys I know but I’m going to plead ignorance and buy myself something nice instead.

  5. Wow! These are so stunning. I love how sweetly romantic they are, which is different than a lot of Valentine’s Day ensembles. I can safely say I prefer this– definitely more my style!

    Thanks for posting : )

    Our Valentines is going to be spent down at the park with a big platter of our favourite cheeses and crackers. Going to take little clear cups with candles and gaze at the stars. Going to be lovely (and a little mozzie coil to save our skin from bites)

  7. I also love any excuse to celebrate and dress up. I’m already planning St Patricks Day dinner.
    My Valentine will be treated to a high tea and intimate dinner with pink champagne, at home cooked by me.
    The table will be decorated with hearts galore and the food will have a heart theme too.
    A bit over the top but I love it.
    And of course I’m taking the day off to celebrate St Valentines long weekend with Mon Cheri! xox
