Valentine’s Day Date Outfits

If you have a date this Valentine’s Day, it’s important to have a nice outfit. Maybe you probably should already have an outfit picked out, but these are some suggestions just in case you have a date in the next couple of days that you haven’t planned out an outfit for.

ASOS Dress

This dress is a little too expensive for me. The free shipping is definitely a big plus though. This is a simple yet classy dress that is bound to impress any potential date.

Forever 21 Dress

This is a nice and reasonably cheap dress. It’s simple yet elegant and I love this. I think it’s perfect to wear on a date because it isn’t too much but it’s just enough.

Red Elegant Dress

These next two are also from Forever 21. This one is stunning because of the color and the general design. It’s really simple but it’s a killer as well. It’ll look incredible with accessories: a necklace, bracelet, hair piece, scarf, etc. Adding a little bit more color will add to this stunning red dress. I think the price is impressive too.

Diamond

A diamond dress from Forever 21. This one might seem to make too much of a statement. However, I really enjoy the design. It’s a generally unique dress that is bound to stand out.

I had a dress from Charlotte Russe all picked out but it was sadly sold out. So I’m just going to stick with these picks for now.

Online Shopping I Love

Online shopping is a lot more difficult than I anticipated. I expected it to be easy to navigate through all the online sites and what nots. Unfortunately, that turns out to not be the case. At least in my own experience, I find it hard to narrow out the options since there’s just so much to choose from. Here’s a few sites that have become my trusty companion for online shopping.

Urban Outfitters 

Need I say more? Urban Outfitters is one of the best options for online shopping. Yes, the clothes run a bit on the expensive side at times. But there’s just so many options and there’s more than just clothes offered there as well. They also have cool gifts, stationery, beauty products, cards, posters, and record players. They have everything one could possibly need.

H&M

This store is really rad and always seems to have some sort of sale happening. They have any and all clothes, accessories, etc. that you could possibly want. They have cute and affordable items. This is definitely an essential store for any college student or human on a budget!

Forever 21

They also have some really great deals happening all the time. My favorite types of sales are the buy one get one free ones or the free shipping ones! Forever 21 delivers on both of these deals. They have some awesome tees. It kind of bums me out that they don’t have any jeans but they have some classy pants to make up for it.

GoJane

It’s not all that different from the other sites I’ve already listed, BUT GoJane is even cheaper than a lot of the other sites. They also have really useful coupons and codes to get some major discounts.

Urban OG

They have cute things. Need I say much more?

ASOS

ASOS is located in the UK but they also happen to have a store here in America that has some great clothing to choose from.

 

Do’s and Don’ts For Changing Personal Style

One of the best things about fashion is when your style evolves. You’ll look back and be embarrassed by that hoodie you wore in the seventh grade with Hollister written in bold letters across the front. You had to face the embarrassment in order to develop a sense of style that you’re proud of. How you evolve and what direction you evolve in really depends on the person, it’s different for everyone. These are some tips of do’s and don’ts when it comes to your personal style.

Do: Experiment with different colors.

Don’t be boring, liven up your wardrobe with colors that you personally take a liking to. Don’t be afraid to try a variety of different colors. It’ll be nice to changing things up a bit.

Do: Take a lot of pictures

You want to remember the good and bad wardrobe outfit choices that you have. It’s important to document this as often as you possibly can.

Don’t: Brag to others about your clothes

The bragging often happens when you’re younger. I used to be like that in middle school. The big reason to keep in mind why this is a bad idea is because your clothes really isn’t as great as you think. You’ll realize that years later when you find the clothes and you wonder why anyone let you wear that terrible outfit. It’s best to just steer clear of the bragging thing altogether.

Don’t: Buy something just because it’s trendy

Trends change, don’t buy something that doesn’t match your style just because it’s what everyone else has. Sticking to your own style and wearing what you prefer instead of the latest trends helps with your self confidence.

Here are a few examples of how your personal style might evolve.

Take for example, the above hoodie from Aeropostale is cute and probably really warm. As an 18 year old, I’d no longer wear it because it looks like it’s meant for younger ages than my age.

In high school, I wore more things like this jacket from Delia’s. Delia’s is directed for teens but more older ages instead of middle school. Delia’s was the transition between Aeropostale and more mature stores.

Now this dress from Urban Outfitters is up to my speed. This now is comparable to my own personal style. My style has evolved from just wearing whatever everyone else was wearing to more classy fashion that works for me.

Tentative Guide to Dressing Edgy

Dressing on the edgy side and experimenting with new looks is everything to me. Fashion should be about trying new styles and not being afraid to find what trends suit you. The number one thing isn’t to have all of the super cool items that everyone else has. The number one thing is to dress like yourself and discover what that means along the way. Every person has their own personal style. Mine just happens to be on the edgy side. But sometimes I also like to dress preppy. I think this experiments with both preppy and edgy. Hope you like it!
