Valentine’s Day Lookbook – Casual Chic

This is the second part to my Valentine’s Day Lookbook, and a reminder that not every Valentine’s Day needs to be super fancy and elegant. In fact, sometimes the most casual and comfortable outfits are the best. So, here is some inspiration for some simpler yet still put together outfits!

Detailed Tank

I love layering simple chiffon tanks because they are so easy to work with! If you want to go for a more put together look, try finding a tank with some more detailing! It will easily transform any simple tank to a more unique piece. I particularly love back detailing on tanks because the patterns and designs are endless. Another thing you can consider is sequins or studs! It’s such a simple touch but they really do transform any plain tank. In fact, you can find a lot of DIYs online so if you’re feeling creative, you can always transform an old shirt!

Rompers

Rompers are great because they can be dressed up or down. You can easily make rompers elegant for a fancier event, or wear it for a simple girl’s night out! If you want to go for a more casual boho look, try finding a romper with long sleeves. This will not only provide a little more warmth for the cold night, but it will also create a more laid back feel. If you want to change up a plain romper, try adding a belt in the middle! Belts complement almost all rompers and it creates a more casual vibe as well.

Peplum Blouse

If you want a more girly outfit for Valentine’s Day, try finding a nice peplum blouse! Peplums look great as they really accentuate curves and they’re a great flirty touch! If you want a more put together outfit, try finding peplum blouses in dark, rich shades. You can pair these with some nice heels or flats. If you want a more casual and girlier outfit, find a peplum blouse with lace in pastel shades!

I hope my Valentine’s Day Lookbook series gave you some inspiration! Which outfit was your favorite?

Valentine’s Day Lookbook – Date Night

Since Valentine’s Day is coming up this month, I wanted to share some Valentine’s Day outfit inspiration. This will be a two part series, the first one will be a Date Night Lookbook for all of you with dinner dates or fancier Valentine’s Day plans. I want to capture a lot of different styles in these lookbooks so hopefully you will find inspiration in one of these outfits! 🙂

Naturally, I drift towards the reds and pinks for outfits on Valentine’s Day. While it may seem a little too cliche, it’s always a safe option and there are always super cute dresses in these shades available around Valentine’s Day! It’s also easy to dress up or down dresses in shades of red with different outerwear or shoes, so it is very easy to work with! Here are 3 different dress options for your Valentine’s Day date night:

The Maxi

A deep, red maxi dress is bound to be a stunner on Valentine’s Day. Maxi dresses are great because they’re such a simple piece but they make such a big statement. They are also very easy to accessorize, simply because they do not need a lot of accessories! Pair some delicate gold jewelry, a simple clutch, and maybe a black leather jacket to complete the look! To create an even bigger statement, try to find a v-neck maxi dress. Plus, maxi dresses are typically shift style and not bodycon, so no worries about stuffing yourself at dinner! 😉

The Bodycon

A delicate pink bodycon dress is a classic and safe choice for Valentine’s Day. Bodycon dresses are great because you can go with either delicate accessories or you can make a statement! Either pair delicate gold jewelry or go for a statement necklace; either way, both are great choices! You can also switch up the bags for this night, and change your handbag for a nice clutch. If you choose to go with statement accessories, you can tone down the look with some nude heels; if you want to go for more simple and classic accessories, you can make a statement with some more bold heels! Bodycon dresses are so great to work with, so get creative this Valentine’s Day!

The Crop Top + Midi Skirt

The crop top and skirt combo always makes a great outfit! However, if you want a classier and more formal outfit, try switching out your skater skirts with a midi skirt! A great Valentine’s Day combo would be a dark crop top with a light pink or red midi skirt. I love how the crop top and skirt combo can create both a girly look and a more edgier look. So, go with whatever you’re more comfortable with, it’s super easy to create multiple looks with these two pieces! Also, midi skirts tend to make legs look shorter but don’t worry, bring out your best heels for this day! Complete the look with a classic crossbody bag and you’re ready for a night out!

I hope these three outfit ideas gave you some inspiration for a formal Valentine’s Day event! If this is not your type of Valentine’s Day, do not worry! My second part to the Valentine’s Day Lookbook series features more casual styles!

Retro Redux

I absolutely love following Forever 21’s lookbooks on their website because I always get so much fashion inspiration from them! One of their more recent lookbooks was this Retro Redux lookbook and I completely fell in LOVE with the outfits featured. In fact, I loved it so much that I wanted to share it with you all here!

If I had to sum up my favorite style, it would 100% be everything featured in this lookbook. Granted, I do not wear outfits like this on a daily basis and I’ve actually never worn some of the styles featured here, I feel like this lookbook truly captures my dream style. I absolutely love the mix of different bohemian pieces and textures along with the stylish basics. The details in these outfits are amazing and I love the layering in each outfit. This is by far one of my favorite lookbooks by Forever 21 and I am looking forward to transitioning to more outfits like these!
