Love is the order of the day

Love is the order of the day

Accessorise right this Valentine's Day...

Go for a heart-shaped bag to add spunk to your Valentine's Day look.

The day of love is just two days away. From wearing your heart on the sleeve to embracing those classic ‘red lip girl’ look you like, it’s just another reason for us girls to get all dolled up in those fiery reds and make the most of this beautiful day. But all this sounds too passé, doesn’t it?

No longer do we adorn those dolled-up looks with faux lashes, overly contoured faces and going all overboard with those red dresses. Just let your beauty reflect with that minimal make-up, simple dresses and stylish yet low-key accessories to make everybody swoon. So, let’s all gear up to spend this day of love with our boos and friends over a few drinks and scrumptious meals by making a mark by your OOTD’S/OOTN’S, but not going over the top:

• Silver dangles: Opt for a chic and elegant look with a black sexy sequin dress from your closet. Elevate this with a pair of silver, long diamond dangles to shine on that dinner date. Pout a kiss and you are good to go, miss.

• Heart-shaped bags: Thinking to go all black this V-night and confused what element to add a bit of oomph and colour to your outfit? Carry a red heart arm candy and make all those heads turn.

• Choker: With so many fancy options, the struggle to pick out one absolute Valentine’s Day look is bona fide. A choker is there for your rescue. You can sport a trendy choker on a casual lunch date with a crop top and ripped denim and make sure to look your edgy most!

• Sunnies: A lot of us might be thinking to skip a soiree or date night for a brunch with our girlies. Add a bit of fun to your outfit with those in the face heart-shaped sunnies to stay at bay from the sun in style.

• Heart bracelets: If you are inclined towards a casual and simple look, opt for quirky heart and rose charm bracelets. Wear it on a rom-com date with a long flowy skirt and a printed tee for that girl-next-door look.

• Denim on denim: Do a little DIY with your denim on denim look by using a few red heart and lip brooches to get into the spirit of the ‘loved up’ day and give a bit of an eccentric touch to your outfit.

• Heart necklace: Don’t wear your heart on your sleeve. Instead, mix simple hearts into your jewellery for the special day. If you are planning a comfortable date in a skater dress, try keeping it uncomplicated and classy with a heart necklace on the day of love.

Silver rings: Embrace that ‘bawse’ babe in you by sporting a power suit. Not to go too bold with the accessories but still want to make a statement? Let your rings do the talking.
