Valentine’s Day (not Veteran’s Day) is just a little more than a week away. Maybe you’ve been hit by Cupid’s arrow this year, maybe you haven’t. Maybe you’re sick of hearing about it. Regardless, the key to a successful look lies in keeping it real and wearing something true to you. Why?
- Because dressing for the sake of appearing trendy or achieving someone else’s idea of sexy is overrated. And feeling overly self-conscious or constantly fussing over an outfit does not make for a fun evening. I’m not saying wear mom jeans and an oversized sweatshirt because “it’s comfortable”–that combo says something more along the lines of “I’m hiding myself.” (And you shouldn’t hide.) But if tall platform heels aren’t your thing, that’s okay. Wear flats. If they are, super. Rock them. If you can pull off the slip dress trend, cool. If it’s not your style, jumpsuits are cool too.
- Because a date who wants you to be someone you are not is a date you can do without. Authenticity is always the best choice. And really, who wants to hang out with that guy all night? Enough said.
- And because you should ALWAYS dress for yourself. Wear something that makes you feel beautiful, feminine, smart, sexy, strong, confident, fun, and empowered all at the same time. You don’t have to sacrifice one for the other.
You do you. And if you feel like it, try one of these combos…
