AS VALENTINE’S Day draws closer, tside understands how difficult it can be to create valentines’ couture on a budget but that is no reason to ruin your date.
This romantic time of year is a tricky subject for deciding on appropriate fashion choices at an affordable price.
The hassle of buying something new can be daunting but it’s time to ditch the fears, work within your budget and dress to impress.
With help from Middlesbrough’s vintage quarter Baker Street, tside uncovered the guide to valentine’s couture.
This is the night for glamour and elegance. If you’re going out for a fancy dinner, you will never be let down by every girls favourite the LBD, (Little Black Dress). Wear with simple black heels that make you and your feet smile, add an extra bit of sparkle with a belt to emphasise that sleek waist line and finish with a statement jacket.
Men, you need to step up your game for a dinner date. There’s no need to rent a tux but we recommend a great fitted shit buttoned up to the collar. To finish the look, team your smart shirt with a vintage style Tweed jacket which will keep you both warm and stylish.
This may be a more of a casual date but that is no excuse not to take full advantage to look breathtaking. Take a floral dress, paying attention to pastel colours, reds and creams for the valentines feel, comfy pumps and add an extra bit of glamour with a fur coat.
You may be tempted to wear your university hoodie but please resist the urge. Comfort and style can go hand in hand but remember you are trying to dress to impress. This relaxed look can work a charm with the ladies. Inspired by vintage themes, team a pair of jeans with a casual shirt and a statement jacket to finish the look.
