Hints have been dropped, restaurants have been booked and surprises have been carefully hidden. You know you’re doing something special for Valentine’s Day and you know you have to look fabulous, for it, but you just don’t know what dress to wear to make an impression. Fear not; here’s my pick of five of the best dresses for this Valentine’s Day, and what you should wear them with for maximum impact.
1 – The Little Black One
Up the ante on a traditional LBD with this black engineered lace dress by Alexander McQueen. Featuring appealing intricate needle-point fabric, this piece is a striking fusion of art and fashion. Keep jewellery simple, and soften the look with bright accessories in romantic red and pink tones.
2 – The Neon Bright One
Let your love for Valentine’s Day shine from the outside with this metallic sequined dress from Diane von Furstenberg – we can’t get enough of the gorgeous tangerine hue. Pair it with contrasting, neon brights and quirky jewellery for a fresh, contemporary look.
3 – The Cute Printed One
Playful prints are a must-have this season and this cream and black polka-dot dress by Marc by Marc Jacobs is a feminine way to wear them. Add all black accessories for a sleek monochrome combination; we love these Tabitha Simmons pumps for being an interesting take on a classic shoe.
4 – The Hot Pink One
Make a vibrant impact with this pink silk shift dress by Bottega Veneta. Pair it with a statement necklace and a colour-pop bag to make a fashion-forward impression this Valentine’s Day, and add embellished shoes to set the whole ensemble off.
5 – The Red Bodycon One
You can never go wrong with a bold red dress on Valentine’s Day, and this textured bodycon dress from Azzedine Alia. Team with statement shoes and a simple bah and jewellery, and you’ll make a sartorial impact wherever your date’s taking you this year.
