We welcome guest blogger Charlotte Lamb from Styling Out The School Run to help us with some Valentine's outfits! Roses are red, Violets are blue, which of these gorgeous outfits, is for you!
Valentine's Day is the perfect opportunity to let that special person in your life know what they mean to you but more importantly it’s the perfect excuse to treat yourself to a new outfit and have a date night…Hooray!
However, a date night outfit usually means a skimpy, strapless, low cut or backless little number. With all of these things there is the issue of underwear(nobody wants to be sporting a sexy little dress with their bra straps showing).
So Ladies, I have put together a number of possible looks that cover any date, from the cinema to a luxurious meal and drinks. Plus I will be showing you which Perfection Secrets products I have used to make the look flawless.
DATE: COCKTAILS & MEAL
Bardot Bodycon Dress – Next £55+Heels – H&M £14.99+Facet Beaded Clutch – Jacques Vert £31.20
Red really is synonymous with Valentine's Day so what better dress to wear than this stunning Bardot Bodycon Dress from Next. It is classic yet sexy and the low cut ‘v’ at the front is extra flirty. If you want to keep all eyes on you then this is the dress to wear.
Due to the dress being strapless I opted for the Fabric Nipple Covers to keep a smooth appearance at the chest. As the dress has some padding and structure built in, this was all that I needed to finish off the look. The covers are lightweight, very comfortable and they do not budge.
Ribbed Top – H&M £34.99+Skinny Jeans – H&M £19.99+Ankle Boots – Zara £24.99
For a casual yet flirty outfit, look no further than this open back knit from H&M. It is casual enough for the cinema but has a rather flirty surprise at the back. Team it with jeans and heels for a relaxed, effortless look.
Perfection Secrets – Low Back Converter in Black £6
Like most women I prefer to wear a bra (especially after two children)! The Perfection Secrets Low Back Converter is the ideal solution when wearing a backless or low back top/dress. It is adjustable, discreet and so easy to use.
DATE: BAR OR CLUB
Red V Neck Top – H&M £14.99+Imitation Leather Pencil Skirt – H&M £24.99+Heels – Zara
A strappy little red top with a satin feel mixed with a faux leather pencil skirt allows you to look sexy yet ladylike and is perfect for a night on the town. Keep the top tucked in to allow your silhouette to shine and keep the heels high!
Perfection Secrets – Fashion Tape £4 (pk 20)
Along with the Fabric Nipple Covers I also used Fashion Tape with this top. This is a must when you are wearing anything low cut or loose on the chest, even with a bra. The Fashion Tape will prevent any ‘accidents’, so all you have to do is concentrate on looking fabulous and dancing the night away.
DATE: DOUBLE DATE
Jacket Dress – H&M £49.99+Velvet Touch Tights – M&S £9.50+Heels – Zara
This tuxedo inspired dress has a very powerful and somewhat androgynous look to it, yet due to the cut and fit it remains feminine. The dress would also look fabulous worn over a lace-trimmed slip but I prefer it with a touch of skin showing. Keep your legs bare or wear with tights and keep accessories feminine and pretty.
Perfection Secrets – Silicone Nipple Covers £12
These Silicone Nipple Covers are just the thing to give you a smooth finish up top. They are skin like and also act as coverage just in case anything were to slip! The covers are reusable up to 20 times and are ideal under tight fitting or sheer clothing including lingerie.
DATE: GIRLS NIGHT
Long Sleeved Top – H&M £12.99+Mom Jeans – Primark £13.99+Heels – H&M £14.99
Valentine's Day is just as much fun for all the single ladies as it is for those in a twosome. So gals even if you aren’t in a relationship grab your friends, put on your heels and head out on the town. This look is casual and easy to wear and would transition perfectly from day to night with the change of a shoe and a bold, red lip.
Perfection Secrets – Secret Straps £6
Secret Straps really are incredible and can be worn in a variety of ways. The clear straps that come in this packet attach to any strapless bra and allow you support whilst keeping your bra straps hidden away. Secret Straps also include a clear low back converter, clear racer back clip and a nude bra extender.
& NOT FORGETTING THE FOOTWEAR…
Perfection Secrets – Gel Cushions £3.50
In order to keep strutting your stuff into the early hours you have to keep your feet comfortable and the Gel Cushions from Perfection Secrets will do just that. They cushion the ball of your feet, they are discreet, washable and reusable.
I hope that this has given you some tips and ideas for your perfect Valentine's Day look and that you have a love filled day!
