Next week a well-known holiday is coming around, Valentine’s Day. Some people dread this holiday and others take the day to appreciate the people they love. I love Valentine’s Day because I’m a lover not a hater. Today I’m kicking off my Valentine’s Day series For the Love of Fashion and will continue to add Valentine’s day related posts throughout the week. This series will give you ideas on what to get for your special person, what to do that day, and of course tips on what to wear. Something that I struggle on every year is what I will be wearing to school that day. I always try to look special on Valentine’s Day, I have never had a boyfriend but I do like giving a good impression. I decided to help out you guys as well, I know girls have the same problem with trying to find something appropriate to wear to school. I came up with four different outfits to give each type of girl a choice. For girls who want to dress more elegant that day, the light pink outfit on the far left is perfect. The soft color palate used and modest clothing screams elegance. Girls that want to dress romantic and flirty can go with the magenta dress with the polka dot shirt under as that bow shouts “I’m girly”. Some girls have a more sporty personality and want to dress comfortably so I created an outfit with the green and orange sweater to keep that comfort. For girls that prefer a more grunge look, I created the outfit on the far right so that they can stay in their comfort zone, yet dress appropriately for that day. I know that if I were to pick an outfit out of these choices I would either go for the elegant one because I like to dress modest, or the romantic one for the spirit of the holiday. Which outfit would you choose, and why?
Lots of school homework today so I’m in a bit of a rush. Having a teen fashion blog can be a bit stressful, lots to do! The gold, black and white color palette in this set is an all time classic. The metallic in the outfit is coming from the pants and the gold detail in the jacket. Even though the pant is metallic gold, the fabric is not the shiny, glossy kind so the look is still very elegant. Because I used a metallic pant, I made sure to use accessories that wouldn’t overtake from the impact of the gold pant. In my opinion, choosing shiny accessories would have given this outfit a not so refined look. Don’t be afraid to add a couple of metallic pieces to your wardrobe, just be careful with the selection of the color and material of the fabric. Choosing the right fabric is critical to achieving an elegant look. As you can see with this outfit, if you are bold enough you can take the metallic look to the office. What is the boldest piece of clothing you own?
