February is known as the “month of love” because of Valentine’s Day, and we spend days, even weeks, getting ready for it. We start planning what we’re going to do, what we’re going to give to our special someone, and the most important thing, what we’re going to wear!
Everyone has their own style, but there’s still ways to add touches of romance to every look whether it’s punk, trendy, boho, or classic elegance.
Punk: If you like to wear punk, which can range in style from classic to glam to steampunk then your closet is full of dark clothing, studded leather jackets, military style boots, and fingerless leather gloves.
Romance it up! Add a pink or red ruffled lace camisole under the leather jacket, pink mesh tights with a leather mini skirt and boots, or pink fingerless gloves and studded leather jewelry.
Date Night Movie: Enjoy a classic punk movie like Valley Girl or Sid and Nancy, or the more recent What We Do is Secret.
Trendy: If you’re into the latest styles and trends, then your wardrobe consists of color block clothing with flashy embellishments, flared skirts, fur handbags, and high heels made with a mix of fabrics and patterns.
Romance it up! Make your look flirty and romantic by wearing a dress in a color block of reds and pinks, with either a sheer top or bottom block. A flared skirt is romantic by itself, but you can add a ruffled pink or red blouse and kitten heels to complete the look. Complete your look with an adorable handbag trimmed in pink or red fur.
Date Night Movie: Snuggle up with your favorite guy and watch P.S. I Love You, The Notebook, or the timeless Titanic.
Boho: One of the most versatile styles around, boho ranges from boho grunge to boho chic and everything in between. It’s a style that naturally incorporates romance from flowing skirts and dresses to ruffled shirts and lacy accessories.
Romance it up! Add a pink or red lacy camisole to a printed flowered skirt, pair crocheted UGG boots with lacy pink or red tights and a long sweater dress, or wear a delicate lace or ruffled scarf loosely around your neck.
Date Night Movie: Curl up in front of the fire and enjoy an indie favorite like Peace, Love, & Misunderstanding, Happiness Runs, or a rom-com like Wanderlust.
Classic Elegance: If you dress in classic fashion, you prefer plaids, tweeds, slacks, button-down shirts and the like. It’s a timeless look that never goes out of style, and it’s easy to incorporate trendy or romantic touches.
Romance it up! Change out the button-down shirt to one with ruffles and lace or pair the slacks with flats decorated with a bow. Instead of slacks, wear a flared skirt with a peek-a-boo lace hem and heels for a romantic touch. Or, you can add a sheer wrap over a lacy camisole to wear with your favorite slacks and pumps.
Date Night Movie: Classic style calls for classic romantic movies like Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Ghost, or Sleepless in Seattle.
