So here’s your dilemma. Valentine’s Day is fast approaching, you are going out on a date and you have no idea what to wear! Do you go dressy or low key? Formal or informal? Sexy or….well there’s no question about that…you are always going to look sexy on a date but there are degrees of how much you might want to turn it on. Well, fear not peeps, I have a few suggestions that I’d like to show you from Karen Millen’s new Spring and Summer collection that I’m loving the look of. Anyone who has read my blog knows that I’m a huge fan of Karen Millen. I love their motto, ‘Adding an extra bit of love into everything they do’ from the design process to the fabrics to creating silhouettes that suit real women. I am a massive fan of their cool designs and quality fabrics and SS17 is no exception so when they contacted me to collaborate, I was like YAAAAASSS honey!!!!
Valentines is a big deal for everyone who’s in a relationship and every girl thinks about pulling out all the stops for the big night. Whether you’ve just started seeing someone or have been together for years you still going to want to make a big impression. I have edited their SS17 collection and picked out dresses that fit the bill for this special night. So here you go ladies, get shopping for that perfect Valentine’s outfit!
This blue snake print midi dress oozes effortless boho chic and would work just as well for an informal lunch paired with flats or boots and a leather jacket to complete the look as it would if worn with a pair of heels for an evening date. Its unstructured lines will make you look totally relaxed and smoking hot at the same time. If you want to turn up the heat a bit more then the drawstring tie front can be opened to reveal a bit of shoulder and that effortless chic will appear as though you are trying but not too hard.
This A-line Black and White Polka dot dress has been styled with Black Cuff sandals which are super comfortable to walk in but also very fashion forward…two things you don’t often find going together in the shoe department! The outfit is finished off with a Nude Clutch Bag. This dress still maintains that boho chic feel but with an even more sexier look. You could also style this dress with over the knee boots and a leather jacket or you can throw on trench coat for a more grown up look.
Turning up the sexiness another notch is this beautiful Embroidered Lace Dress. I was torn between this and the Red Coral Floral Dress that follows to be the one I would choose to wear on my Valentines date. It was a tough call as I love the colours and detail in the lace embroidery and the demure yet sexy look the dress conveys. It would look amazing with a pair of killer open toed ankle boots and a cross body bag and even a trilby if you are feeling adventurous. Whatever you chose to wear with it you can guarantee that you will be turning more heads than just your partners!
This Coral Floral Dress is my favourite and one I’d definitely like to wear for my Valentines date night. I love the pop of colour with the bell sleeves and its length that shows a bit of leg for when you want to pull out all the stops!!!! The bow belt is a really nice touch and shows the attention to detail that goes into the design. You can see this same attention in the lace detailing on the bust area that I also love. I would pair this look with a Nude stiletto and a nude clutch bag. Red is very powerful so I would tone my accessories down to bring out the dress. Wearing this dress you can be confident that you are going to set pulses racing!
I wish you all a fabulous Valentines and you can shop these looks by visiting the Karen Millen website.
