Yeah, you guessed it. I’m doing What to Wear a day early (and early in the day) so you can go and grab that last-minute Valentine’s date outfit! Have you left it a bit late, or simply don’t know what to wear still? Fear not! Get in early online, and you can get next-day delivery. Or nip out on your lunch break and stock up on that perfect date outfit. To make things easy, this whole ensemble is from River Island. Simply add a slick of red lipstick (I recommend the Topshop range), chandelier earrings and a blazer, and you’re set. Don’t want to go so smart? Switch the pencil skirt to a pair of dark-coloured jeans for a dressed down alternative.
I like to keep things simple, but there are plenty of statement pieces on the highstreet – including printed dresses from Oasis, printed jacquard trousers from Topshop, or even all-out glam with a sequined top from French Connection. Just make sure you don’t clash with that big bouquet of roses you’ll get!
Happy Valentine’s Day.
