Raider Runway: Valentine’s Day Trends


With Valentine’s Day on Friday, it is time to start thinking about that perfect outfit for a night out with your girlfriend, boyfriend or best friends.

As for the ladies, what is cuter than a simple dress for a night out on the town? Sometimes you do not need a lot to create that perfect outfit. Just add a necklace, some cute shoes and a clutch purse and you are all set.

Obviously you can not go wrong with pink or red on Valentine’s Day, so start out with a dress of either color. Choose from a smart pencil dress or vintage cocktail dress, which is appropriate for any occasion. Add some silver or gold bling, but not too much, and finish off the ensemble with a cute pair of shoes. A comfortable pair of flats or some elegant high heels will complete any outfit for a night out.

These outfits can be dressed up or dressed down depending on the type of night out. If you are going to a club or a fancy restaurant with your boyfriend, then definitely dress to impress and choose a more fashionable outfit. If you are going to a more casual place for dinner or just hanging out with friends, keep it simple.

As for the men, is there any better feeling than seeing your girlfriend’s smile when she sees you dressed up to take her out to dinner? If you are serious about treating her to a great dinner, then take your outfit seriously as well.

Red is the perfect color to wear for a night out on Valentine’s Day. Depending on where you are going, you can either dress up or down like the ladies.

A fancier restaurant means nicer clothes, such as a sophisticated tie, dress pants, a belt and dress shoes. If you’re going somewhere more casual, still stick with a dress shirt for the special Valentine’s Day occasion, but you can get away with a nice pair of jeans or khakis.

As much as a nice outfit can make Valentine’s Day more fun and exciting, the whole point of the holiday is to spend it with the ones you love. Enjoy it with friends and family or boyfriends and girlfriends and wear whatever makes you feel amazing on this special day.
