Ah, Valentine’s Day. That time of year when the world dons its rose-colored glasses, and everywhere you look there are couples cozying up. But who says couples should have all the fun? Valentine’s Day, or as we prefer, “Singles Awareness Day,” is just as much about self-love as it is romantic love. And if you’re celebrating with your pals, family, or just treating yourself to a night of solo pampering, there’s no reason you shouldn’t look every bit the rock star that you are.
So, for all the singles ready to mingle (or just jingle to their favorite tunes), here’s a guide to nailing that V-Day look. All you need is love… for yourself!
The Classic Rocker Chick/ Dude:
Whether you’re celebrating ‘Galentine’s Day’ or heading out with the bros, channel your inner Joan Jett or Mick Jagger. Don a leather jacket, ripped jeans, and that band tee you’ve been saving for a special occasion. Finish the look with combat boots and a studded belt. Who says Valentine’s is all about soft and fluffy? Rock on!
Vintage Vinyl Vibes:
Headed to a retro-themed singles party? Slip into a polka dot dress or a sleek suit reminiscent of the 50s. Pair with shiny loafers or Mary Janes and dance the night away to some old-school tunes. Remember, classic never goes out of style.
Pop Princess/Prince Night:
Go bright, bold, and colorful. Think of the ‘80s and ‘90s – the era of pop. Opt for neon-colored outfits, chunky jewelry, and platform shoes. Whether you’re in a jumpsuit, a mini skirt, or sporting funky pants, you’ll be channeling all the groovy vibes.
Casual Cool for Movie Night:
If you’re planning a quiet night in, watching rom-coms or perhaps some rock documentaries, comfort is key. But comfort doesn’t mean lacking style. Try oversized sweaters, cool joggers, or maybe those pajamas that are just too chic to be confined to the bedroom. Add fluffy socks and you’re set.
Spa Day Splendor:
Who says spa days can’t be stylish? Slip into a silky robe and matching slippers. Have a set of luxe pajamas underneath and don’t forget that eye mask for the ultimate diva touch. You’re ready for facials, mani-pedis, or just lounging in style.
Beach Party Bonanza:
If you’re lucky enough to be near a beach in February, or perhaps you’re throwing a beach-themed singles bash, think tropical. Flowy beach dresses, Hawaiian shirts, shorts, and flip-flops. Throw in some shades and you’re the epitome of cool.
The “I’m my own date” Elegance:
Dinner for one at a fancy restaurant? Why not! Dress to impress yourself.
Ladies, think elegant mesh dresses or chic jumpsuits. Gents, a crisp shirt and tailored pants should do the trick. Put on those heels or shiny shoes. After all, who better to appreciate your elegance than you?
Perhaps you’re using this day to treat your body to some endorphin-boosting activities. Opt for stylish workout gear. Think yoga pants with cool patterns or that snazzy tracksuit you’ve been waiting to debut.
Heading to an art gallery, a poetry reading, or a music gig? Showcase your artsy side. Boho dresses, funky hats, layered outfits, you can match a cute sexy skirt with a black thigh high boot and accessories that make a statement. Let your outfit be as unique as the art you’re admiring.
Game Night Get-up:
Hosting or attending a games night? Go casual but with a touch of quirky. Graphic tees with fun slogans, comfy jeans, and those cool sneakers you bought last month.
Remember, it doesn’t matter what or how you’re celebrating. The point is to express yourself, love yourself, and showcase the fabulous individual that you are. While couples might have each other, you’ve got something equally special – an unshakable bond with yourself. And, if you ask us, that’s the greatest love affair of all!
So, put on that record, prep that outfit, and make Freddie Mercury proud by proving that you are indeed having a good time, having a good time! Rock your Valentine’s Day, singles!
