Valentine’s day is coming up and whether you’re going on a first date and looking to impress or simply spending the night in, having some quality time with the family, we’re here to help you dress right for the occasion.
It’s often a cliche that you must wear some red on the day but trust us when we tell you, you don’t have to!
For something a little different and to stand out from the crowd on a casual day-date why not try a pair of white chinos or jeans? They are a nice sleek alternative to regular denim, and pairing them with a light casual jacket will work from day into early evening.
If you’re feeling the chill of the colder Dubai weather after the sun sets, you can add a light sweater to this look too.
If you’re busy working from the office this Valentines, you can still make time for a date night. Your regular smart-office look can double up as a well put together date-night outfit.
If you can get away with it, a smart pair of dark jeans can transition well from office to evening and adding a nice piece of tailoring like a statement blazer or jacket will elevate the outfit to an “effortlessly cool” level.
If you’ve booked a fancy restaurant for your Valentine’s date you might want to go all-out and make a big impression but don’t over-do it.
A classic Blazer, shirt & trousers combo with some smart loafers will work perfect here. Add a pocket square for a pop of colour and some extra flair if you’re feeling bold.
No plans for valentines? No worries!
Some of the best Valentines days are the ones spent in with the whole family.
There’s no need to dress up for the sofa but you want to make a little effort to show you haven’t forgotten what day it is! A new pair of comfy joggers and t-shirt will show that you’ve still thought ahead and made an effort.
Oh, and guys, don’t forget the flowers!
