This blogpost contains pr sample (marked with c/o) and affiliate links

I know that Valentine’s Day is quite commercial and overrated. BUT doesn’t it make sense to get reminded on one day of the year to show and tell our loved ones how much they mean to us? Because let’s be honest: we forget to do this most of the time, don’t we? Furthermore, the 14th of February is the perfect occasion to dress up during this otherwise so boring and dull month. If you, however, still don’t have a proper outfit prepared, I have some super easy tips for you on how the create a beautiful Valentine’s Day outfit. Most likely, you even already have most of those pieces in your closet!

Tip 1: Choose a Cut you really like

Let’s start with the base of our look. Make sure to choose a style and cut you feel comfortable and beatiful in. For me, this is a fitted dress. However, as I want to go out for dinner on this day, I make sure my dress isn’t too tight, as I definitely want to eat more than just a salad. 😉 An enhanced waist and a subtle cleavage always look good. I personally feel best in dresses. But of course, you can also choose trousers or skirts in combination with a pretty top. The main point is that you feel good and beautiful!


Beautiful Dresses for Valentine’s Day:

Tip 2: Choose a flattering Colour & Jacket

When you know which cut and style you want for your Valentine’s Day outfit, it’s time to choose a flattering colour for your look. You don’t know which shade suits you best? Then try this: Look in a huge mirror and hold clothes in different colours beside your head. When do your complexion look best? This is your colour!

You chose the little black dress as your Valentine’s Day outfit but want to add a bit of colour? Then wear a colourful jacket on top. Extraordinary jackets, capes, and coats are also great to make your look even more special, as my vintage cape proves.


Tip 3: Wear fancy Earrings

Beautiful earrings catch your counterpart’s eye. They don’t even have to be sparkly. My black rose earrings by Glitter Paradise, for example, get lots of attention. However, I recommend to wear long earrings as those look especially tempting.


Tip 4: Choose seductive Accessories

We put on our earrings, and now we need some more tempting accessories. I went for long, black, vintage leather gloves. Beautiful and elegant shoes are a must as well, of course. But make sure they are comfortable and you can walk in them properly! My pumps are by Peter Kaiser and definietely more comfortable than they look.


Tip 5: Wear beautiful Lingerie

If I put on beautiful lingerie, I immediatly feel better and more beautiful. And who feels good and beautiful, also looks good and beautiful! I wear pretty lingerie mainly for myself, by the way. It’s such a great feeling to wear something pretty, even if noone can see it. This time, I chose – beside my usual underwear – stockings with a red seam by What Katie Did.

Tip 6:  A tempting Makeup

A tempting makeup doesn’t necessarily have to be super striking. Often, a more natural look can look even better than a fancy makeup. But the most important thing is that you feel good with what you are wearing. I start with a CC cream that makes my skin look fresher, but still natural. As my skin is rather dry in winter, I skip powder and go on with lots of mascara. Afterwards, I apply a little bit of blush and put on red lipstick. Make sure your lipstick is kiss-proof! If you don’t own a long-lasting product, I recommend a kind of fixing top coat like the Magic Fix by Artdeco, for example.


Tip 7: Choose a cheerful Hairstyle

I usually wear my hair in a bun, but for Valentine’s Day, I wanted something more cheerful. So I used hot rollers first, and brushed out my hair afterwards. Of course pinned up hair looks great as well. Just choose the style you like most.

  1. Oh wow, Sandra: this dress is just perfect on you! What a gorgeous fit and colour. I love it with the stockings – have we seen those rich red seams before? But equally in the last photo it looks great, if totally different, with opaques and red shoes. K
