Roses are red, Violet are blue – is a saying that is attributable to Valentine day. It is not unusual to want to spend time with your loved ones- Family, colleagues, friends etc. Valentine outing doesn’t have to be with a “bae” after all so you don’t need to be “boo’ed up” ASAP. (this reminds me of one of last year’s hit song- boo’ed up- singing loudly in my brain whenever I think of Valentine).
Picking an outfit for a date night or Valentine’s day outing makes one fill a rush of anxiety. It builds up more if it’s your first date with your boo so as to keep him swooning over you all night. It is easier to put together your outfit for a weekend than Valentine that falls on a weekday.

These 5 stylish ways to dress for valentine’s date night whether you’re hanging out with bae or with family or having a girl’s night out.

Girly in tulle
You don’t need to be all grown up in your day to day life. Even though we all know that adulting is a big scam. (Take my words of wisdom, it is not being an adult). So, for valentine, you can go for a girly vibe irrespective of your age. Tulle skirts – also known as tutu – are perfect to pull off this look. You can wear a red tank top on a tulle skirt and a pair of sandal heels for Valentine. It is very girly yet chic. Who doesn’t want to be forever young in the eyes of their boo?
