Shades of Red: Valentine’s Day

Hello everyone!!

Roses are red, violets are blue, keep the roses, I’d rather have shoes…

I’m back again for this week and I hope you have something planned for Valentine’s Day because this is a Valentine’s day lookbook.

The day we celebrate love, whether it’s for your family, your friends or your lover…and all I can think of is RED! I’m giving you 5 different red shades in 5 different outfits.

That Pretty Blouse Look

Look #1, is all about the pretty blouse. All of us have one in our closet tucked away somewhere. Wearing a cute blouse with a pair of jeans is perfect for a Valentine’s Day lunch. It’s smart casual and you’re still looking cute AF. Because Valentine’s day is all about love, I wanted to pick out a frilly and flirty blouse. I got this from Topshop on sale and it’s super cute.

I paired the outfit with a pair of cute kitten heels which I also got on sale at Zara. Kitten heels are super cute for a casual day out. It doesn’t make your outfit too overdressed/formal.

The Preppy One

So here’s a preppy and cute outfit that could be perfect for a simply movie date or just a cafe date somewhere. It’s simple and comfortable to wear. I wore a logo t-shirt which has a cute Valentine’s Day-inspired phrase. I paired it off with a black denim skirt with diamond studs on it. This outfit can easily be turned into a clubbing outfit – just add a pair of boots or heels and it’s totally night-out-worthy.

The Simple Dress

This red is more of a camel red rather than a red-red – if you get what I mean. This outfit is simple yet sophisticated at the same time. It’s a classic long dress with a belt on top. To keep with its elegance, I wore my Salvatore Ferragamo shoes which are perfect for any occasions throughout the day. I used my Louis Vuitton bucket bag with the outfit to keep the camel-colored vibe going on. You can wear this to work and drop by your lunch date without worrying about changing your outfit.

I wore a turtle neck underneath because it’s still so cold over here. For those of you in a hot country, you can easily wear the dress without any white top underneath or wear it with either a plain white t-shirt or buttoned shirt.

The Meetings All Day Look

This outfit is a little bit more for those who are working. This outfit is perfect to portray Valentine’s Day without going overboard with the color red. It’s a sweet and subtle gesture for Valentine’s day. This outfit is perfect for spring and all the beautiful flowers that’s going to bloom soon!

I went a bit overboard with Dior for this outfit. Yes, I was inspired by Dior and Chanel. The tweed just screams Chanel and the whites scream Dior.

Finally, It’s Dinner

This outfit is definitely a dinner outfit. It’s Valentine’s Day, go all out red. Wear red lipstick and a red dress! A classic and flirty red dress that is both elegant and easy to wear. I paired it off with a black bag and black pair of shoes. It’s the perfect Valentine’s Day dinner date outfit.

Wear this with or without a camisole – depends on how daring you are! I added a brooch so the outfit wouldn’t be too simple.

Anyways, I hope you guys have a wonderful day – especially on Valentine’s Day! Have a great celebration with your friends, family and lover and stay amazing! I’ll update you guys about that I’ll do on Valentine’s Day on another blog post and on my Instagram so stay tuned.
