In a couple of days, the valentines’ chocolate will be on sale and we will be thriving. But, you don’t have to wait for a sale to buy the perfect outfit for the cutest holiday of the year. Whether you are going out with the girls, going on a date, or if you just want an eye-catching look for an Instagram pic, you don’t have to spend a fortune to look stunning.
I chose items which I thought were affordable, easy to mix and match, and that fit the Valentines day aesthetic. I gathered these items from a combination of consignment shops, off-price retailers, popular fast-fashion stores, and items I already had in my closet. ( I recommend thrift shopping and off-price shopping because they are more sustainable and ethical. Plus, it’s fun to treasure hunt and find one-of-a-kind items!)
Then, with the help of my bff and fellow Fashion Report member, Kristie Han, we mixed and matched these items to create some trendy looks. These outfits represent a combination of classic, sweet, feminine, edgy, sexy, comfy, casual, and chic styles. No matter what your style is, I hope this look-book inspires you to create an outfit of your own that makes you feel confident. And no one will even know that the money you saved on your outfit went towards all of that on-sale valentines’ chocolate!
On a real note, love yourself this valentines. Indulge in self-care. Remember, it is OK to be single. It is OK to be in a relationship. It is OK to do whatever you want. Stop comparing yourself and live joyfully.
YOU ARE ALL BEAUTIFUL AND DESERVE TO BE CELEBRATED!
