It’s The Month Of Love!

Romantic FashionFebruary 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.

The Long and the Short of It

Jackets and coats come in all shapes and sizes – just like people!  There are so many to choose from that it’s hard to figure out what works best with certain outfits, the weather and your taste.  You might wear two or three different types of coats in one day depending on the weather and what you are wearing.  So, what are your options for jackets and coats and which ones should you choose?

Long Sleeved vs. Short Sleeved/Sleeveless:

Pairing a form fitted long sleeve shirt under a puffy vest or short sleeve jacket in contrasting colors is a very popular look right now.  This look is perfect for those days that are nippy but not too cold.  On the other hand, when there is snow on the ground and a cold wind blowing, a long sleeve jacket or parka will work every time.

Long, Short or In-Between:

The length of the jacket or coat is just as important as the length of the sleeves.  You can achieve different looks and various degrees of warmth and comfort this way.  On really cold days, wear a long trench coat over your boots and jeans, or bundle up with a parka or quilted down jacket that reaches mid-thigh.  If the weather is a little warmer or you prefer a shorter length, you can find jackets that stop at the waist or mid-hip area.

Guys Guide to Fashion: Warm for the Winter

Men are becoming more fashion conscious these days but sometimes they still need a little help in this department.  That’s where we come in.  Now that the cold days of winter are here it’s important that guys know what types of jackets to wear and what keeps them warm in all kinds of weather.

 50°F – 60°F:  If it’s a little bit cold outside with a chance it will warm up then a light jacket, hoodie or sweatshirt will do the trick.  Pair it with a long sleeved shirt, jeans and sneakers and you can shed the jacket or hoodie when the sun comes out to play.

40°F – 49°F:  There’s a bit of a chill in the air at this temp so you’re going to need something heavier than a hoodie. A jacket with a thick inner lining and zip-up collar will work to keep out the cold.  At this temp, it helps to layer underneath with a long sleeve shirt or sweater.

30°F – 39°F:  If it’s freezing, then you’ll need to be prepared for ice and snow outside.  Wear a heavy wool blend pea coat, coupled with a thick comfy scarf wrapped around your neck and gloves to keep your hands warm. You will be toasty in no time!

29°F and Below:  Anything below 30° and you definitely want to be bundled up in the right coat!  Layering also helps to keep you warm so it’s a good idea to wear a T-shirt under a thick long sleeve shirt or sweater.  Add a scarf, gloves and a cable knit hat or beanie to the finishing piece – a thick, heavy, quilted parka or coat.  You can find them with hoodies attached or collars that can be buttoned up for added warmth.
