Though I’m aware that Valentine’s Day isn’t a real holiday (and definitely has a low profile in Australia) it’s definitely the time of the year where people are talking about cutesy romantic things they have planned, and as always, I’m here to deliver you with some cute themed outfits for your cutesy romantic whatever. This is essentially a post to show you a bunch of ways to wear pink, and I’m ok with that. Plus Boohoo really came through with some adorable Valentine’s Day themed outfits and I’m nothing if not a sucker for a cute themed outfit.
I’ve organised my three outfits into arbitrary themes/locations, but honestly, I think these are all really versatile pieces that can be worn year-round and in lots of different scenarios – all of them can be work appropriate, casual or dressy depending on your styling. Even when buying cheaper clothes, I love it when they are versatile and can be worn with many other things I own.
I spent $112 on boohoo and bought five items, all of which can be styled together.
Plus Woven Stripe Midi Dress * – Size 24 – $28
Plus Tie Waist Blazer * – Size 22 – $29
Plus Tailored Trouser * – Size 24 – $22
Plus Rib High Neck Lettuce Hem Top * – Size 24 – $11
Plus Stripe Pleated Skirt * – Size 24 – $22
If you’ve seen my previous post about boohoo, you would know that I always err on the side of sizing up – since that post, I have almost exclusively bought Size 24 from boohoo despite being a size 20/22 everywhere else I shop! I’ve just found that things are more likely to fit comfortably if I size up to a 24, and honestly I don’t care what the number on the tag says as long as it fits well.
OUTFIT 1: OFFICE VALENTINE
Coloured suits are having such a trend moment, and no-one is happier about that than me. This blush pink jacket and pant combo, paired with a soft white turtleneck, could totally be worn to the office, but isn’t so corporate that it couldn’t be worn to dinner or broken down into separates (white top and blazer with cute jeans, pink pants and a patterned jumper or white button-down shirt – heaven!).
Blush pink boots are from Marks and Spencer, earrings are from Lovisa.
OUTFIT 2: FROM BRUNCH TO DINNER VALENTINE
No outfit could be simpler than chucking on a cute patterned dress and some white sneakers. Pair it with a trend bamboo or straw bag, and a belt to cinch the waist and this is the perfect dress for a brunch date, whether it’s with your valentine or galentines! This dress has a bold stripe and a cute fluttery hem and sleeves, and the modest v-neck means it could be dressed down for the office with a black blazer, or up for a fancy dinner with some heels and statement earrings.
OUTFIT 3: THE ALL-OCCASIONS VALENTINE
Midi-length pleated skirts are not only comfortable as heck, but are such a versatile item to have in your wardrobe. Paired with the simple white turtleneck, it’s truly an outfit that could take you anywhere – chill brunch, fancy dinner, or colourful work outfit. Change up the shoes and accessories for a completely different look! I love it paired with the tie-waist blazer from outfit 1 and this sweet merino wool hat from Epitome Hats, which gives it a totally different vibe.
