A Very Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is either something you love or hate, it’s like marmite. There are people that believe you should love your partner every day no matter what and then there are people that completely love the idea. For most, Valentine’s Day is an excuse to get dressed up, spend time with their loved ones – male, female or of the animal kind and it is possibly one of the only days of the year where ‘Public Displays of Affection’ are socially acceptable.

It doesn’t matter what your plans are this Valentine’s Day, at Very.co.uk there are plenty of outfits to choose from to make your day a little bit special – even if you’re snuggling up on the sofa with a tub of your favourite ice-cream watching Bridget Jones’ Diary – we won’t judge you. Here are my four favourite Valentine’s jumpers and dresses by AX Paris.

The Valentine’s First Date

In the way of true romance, Valentine’s Day is the time when the majority of love confessions are made and when many first dates tend to arise. It’s always awkward trying to figure out what to wear on a first date, but they key is to go with an outfit that is a little bit flirtatious, but it also leaves something to the imagination. I really like the look of this Crochet Neck Skater dress. Team this up with a pair of black high heels and a sparkling clutch and you’re ready to go.

The Long Term Girlfriend

So, you have survived the first date and probably many other Valentine’s Days before this, but why should you miss out on the fun? As a woman in a long term relationship myself, I find it important to dress up now and then as a little surprise to my partner and to spice up our relationship. I think this Red Floral Crochet Midi dress is perfect for the occasion. You can walk through the door with this dress hugging your curves, and know you will be only woman in the room he will be focusing on.  Wear this with a short leather biker jacket for a more rock chick appeal or add a black blazer for a Chelsea girl look.

The Friend Date

When there are several of you feeling a little bit dateless, it’s now very common to opt for a Friend date. This usually consists of a group of girls getting together, drinking copious amounts of Processco and not even thinking about the opposite sex for the evening. If this sounds like your plans for Valentine’s Day this year, the heart print skater dress might be a good option. It can be easily dressed up or down for whatever you and your friends have in mind and the hearts are a cute way of getting into the Valentine’s Day spirit without being over the top.

Valentine’s Day for one

Unfortunately we have all been there. Your friends are out with all their partners and the only men you have for company are Ben and Jerry.  Don’t fret about it, just sit back, watch a few rom-coms and feel comfy wearing the AX Paris Giant Heart jumper. Remember, you’re a confident, single woman and there’s a man waiting just around the corner. The men you’ve met so far, you’re just far too good for them.

Whatever your plans are, have a wonderful Valentine’s Day.
