Valentine's Date Night Edit


Ok chaps, so it's only a few days until Valentine's Day so if you haven't got a present, you need to motor on and sort that out.

With this in mind, I thought I'd skip the gift idea part (that's up to you) and get to the crucial point; what you're going to wear.

It's a cliche but it's important to dress up for certain occasions. I'm not saying you need full morning-wear here, but perhaps this Sunday is a day you leave the trainers and hoodie in the wardrobe. Taking pride and putting a bit more effort in your appearance translates that you want to look good and that you don't want to let your other half down.

A lot of this season's trends are heading towards pale (not pastel) tones but this doesn't always translate as a wearable look. But breaking up the usual palette of navy and grey we often stick too will look more confident and considered.

Here's my break down of a select edit of wearable and stylish additions that will work well into the coming seasons.

A clean and simple tailored shirt will become your best friend. The simple press-stud at the collar and hidden placket front keeps this sleek and modern.

Add some fun and interest to your look with some statement trousers. Keep your upper look pared back and let these vibrant trousers speak for you. Aim to keep them a little shorter and pair with some sleek brogues or loafers.

If you're not feeling the tartan, go for a safer but still suave option. Cuff them with a pair of Chelsea boots

Yes, that is a genuine suede jacket for under £70.00. Yes, you are welcome. 
This timeless suede jacket will look amazing with dark denim. If you're not a fan of tan, there is a black alternative.

A lightweight merino sweater is a great alternative to a shirt or t-shirt. Wear it on it's own or layer up as you feel comfortable.

A cool choice, these slip on loafer will work perfectly with the tartan trousers from Topman. Incorporate them into your work wardrobe on casual friday and pair with slim trousers or chinos.

I couldn't possibly compose a list like this and not include a pair of brogues. I've recently got this very pair, the light tan colour is the ideal partner for denim, grey or navy trousers.


There you have it. Wherever you go this weekend, make it about the other person. Look your best to make them feel their best. Have a great Valentine's Day!
