Valentine”s Day is coming up, and it”s important to know how to dress for every possible occasion on this day of love. Whether you”re taking a romantic walk under the stars with a significant other to a picnic in the Arboretum accompanied by a group of violinists, or eating a box of chocolates while watching “The Notebook” alone, planning what to wear ahead of time is vital.
If you are going out on a dinner date with your significant other, or even on a casual date, you should attempt to dress nice. Even if you”re going to a run-down restaurant, it”s still nice to look like you”re headed to a five star hotel. If you”re going out to the movies, it”s acceptable to wear a nice, long jacket over sweatpants and a T-shirt, since your date will only really see you outside the theater. Then you can take off your jacket when the lights go down and maintain maximum comfort levels. It”s the best of both worlds.
If you”re having a night with close friends while you all share a bottle of wine and talk about your failed relationships within the last year, it”s safe to say that you can wear whatever seems suitable. You can go in costume, you can dress up just for your friends or you can wear pajamas.
Some of us might even have our own pity party, while watching one of the cheesiest rom-coms on Netflix, while simultaneously eating a whole box of chocolates by ourselves. In this case, pajamas, or your biggest, fluffiest robe is highly recommended. In order to have a proper pity party, comfort is key.
Some people don”t celebrate Valentine”s Day, but whether you do or you don”t, you need to be dressed for the occasion. It would be disastrous to watch a movie on Netflix in a ballgown or a suit and tie.
