Valentine’s Day Date Night Prep

Valentine’s Day is a great time to celebrate. It doesn’t matter if you’re single, dating or married – it’s the perfect night to throw on one of your best outfits and have some fun. However, some women find themselves stuck when planning a V-Day getup. Here are some tips for choosing your perfect Valentine’s Day outfit:

Browse your closet

Before you shop until you drop, take a look at what you already have in your drawers. Odds are you won’t find an amazing dress in the back of your closet. However, you may be able to find a sheer blouse or pencil skirt that you can build on. Once you have a base, it’s easier to shop knowing you already have one piece to wear. That way, you can coordinate an adorable sweater or pair of dress pants to complete your holiday look.

Be festive

Dressing for a holiday can be incredibly exciting no matter where you’re headed during the day. Some people in the office even sport a cute red heart pin or a pink tie. When planning your outfit for this day, don’t be afraid to rock the festive colors like red, pink or white. You don’t have to sport all of them to take part in the day – just one bold piece of clothing that is red or pink will do the trick.

However, if these colors aren’t exactly your thing, there are other more subtle ways to celebrate. For example, if you like to wear all black, put some red or pink lipstick on. It doesn’t matter how bright the shades are, you’ll look like you put forth effort to match Valentine’s colors. Or, try a floral accessory. A bold, floral silk scarf will add some color to your look and pull everything together.

Keep it casual

People tend to dress up on this romantic holiday, but that doesn’t mean you have to. The last thing you want is to spend the evening messing with an uncomfortable dress so much that you don’t have a good time. Luckily, there’s a solution that will make you feel and look great: the perfect pair of jeans. With our widespread selection of jeans, you can look dressy, cute, casual, sophisticated, elegant and more!

The best part? Monroe and Main’s jeans come in all different sizes and styles so we are sure to have a pair that suits your shape and personality. Spending the evening at home with your family? Throw on some comfortable and relaxed denim. Heading out on the town with the girls? Opt for a dark blue skinny wash pair that works with any kind of top.

Don’t forget underneath

It doesn’t matter if you’re the only one who will be seeing them or not, your intimate apparel matters. It’s not only important that you like your undergarments but that they fit perfectly, as well. No one has a perfect body. It doesn’t matter if you find a fancy dress in your exact size, sometimes an article of clothing is just a little off.

That’s where body shapers come in. These undergarments are meant to slim and shape your figure so that you always look your best. They can flatten a tummy, smooth out bumps or lift a bottom. Find the best shapewear for your body, and it will always look like your clothes are tailored to your curves.

It doesn’t matter if your sweater has little hearts all over it or you’re wearing a solid navy blue blouse, accessories are a must. No one can look overdone on Valentine’s Day. Now is the time to break out your favorite earrings, bracelets and necklaces. Or, you can take an alternative route and accessorize with a bright red or pink handbag. That way, you’ll show your holiday spirit to anyone you come in contact with – even people you walk past on the street.

Be yourself

When it comes to dressing for Valentine’s Day, you want to look and feel like yourself. If you’re the kind of woman who likes to dress in low-key styles, do it. On the other hand, if you feel most confident in a dress and heels, be sure to rock those for the night. The happier you are with your clothes, the happier you will feel.
