I say, dress to please yourself. Listen to your inner muse and take a chance. Wear something that says “Here I am!” today – Iris Apfel.
February is the month of lurve. Date night is mandatory if you’re in a relationship, sometimes even more so when Valentine’s Day comes around. Whether you are in a three year relationship, going on your first date, or have been married for a decade, getting dolled up a little bit for that someone special is all part of the February fun.
I have created four different looks with clothes from the high street. From a walk in the park (which technically is a day date rather than a night one) to the classic dinner date, there is an outfit for everyone. The following looks are simply an inspiration; they may not be your style, take from them what you will, but know what pieces will pull together, and remember: simple is always the best form of elegance.
I’ve also added in an example of which fragrance I would use to complete the look; you’re never fully dressed without your perfume.
