Today’s biggest fashion question: Have you already pinned down your outfit for your Valentine’s Day date? If you haven’t yet, we totally get you—your schedule is swamped and you’ve got so much to do, but girl, V-Day is less than 48 hours away so I think it’s just about time you actually face this dilemma especially if it’s your first big date with your special someone. You say you’re single? If you intend on celebrating your singlehood come the day of hearts, then finding the perfect outfit is also crucial.
Make your Valentine’s look more special than your usual by donning a dress—don’t worry, even if you’re more of a casual fanatic, we’ve got style pegs you’ll love, inspired by some of today’s prettiest stars:
The demure lace dress. This can take you from church to lunch to whatever your special someone has planned—truly, simplicity at its classiest. To avoid looking like a misplaced bride (or worse, one who's about to have her first communion), choose one in a fun silhouette like this midi on Angel Locsin and match with edgy shoes like her laced up heels.
The sweet body con. The Teen Queen surprised everyone when she came out on ASAP in a fuchsia number that tightly hugged and accentuated her lithe frame. Make your date's jaw drop by donning an understated body con piece like Kathryn Bernardo's—so lethal, sweet and sexy at the same time.
The game-for-anything dress. Keep things casual with a playful romper-like dress. Go for a neutral color palette like Mariel Padilla's black dress and nude knit top combo and be ready to face any adventure your date has planned for you (no need to worry about having to keep things pristine, so you can enjoy every moment). Pair with sneakers, of course, for a cool feminine-androgyne contrast.
The modern formal. If you and your special someone are off to spend the day somewhere extravagant, or perhaps with his parents whom you need the approval of, channel French women with a monochromatic ensemble. Deep hues like maroon, plum, and midnight blue will catapult your elegance and add mature points. Spice things up by making sure your outfit has some surprising sexy details like this slit on Erich Gonzales' skirt.
The uber hot piece de resistance. If you want your date to not be able to keep his hands off of you, go all out with an ultra sexy dress with cutout details or in Anne Curtis' case, a cropped top and mini skirt ensemble. Get it in red for that ultimate vavavoom vibe.
