The only thing that makes February different from January? Valentine’s Day. I’m not a fan of the cold and hate that it’s cold on Valentine’s Day. Valentine’s Day is a day to look your best for your love, or even yourself (#selflove). It’s hard to wear heels and a pretty dress when it’s snowing and so so cold outside! Also, my date doesn’t constantly want to be hearing my teeth chattering, and if I do wear a dress, 75% of the time my coat is on over it, blocking the cute dress.
I gave in to the cold a few years ago and when I dress for Valentine’s Day I just make sure I’m warm. But that doesn’t mean you still can’t have fun with fashion! See what I’m talking about below.
Style Guide: What to Wear on a Cold Valentine’s Day
Start With the Accessories
When it’s cold, sometimes accessories are all you have to express yourself! I love these white heart sunnies. Would you believe they’re only $8 on Amazon? They’re perfect for protecting your eyes against harmful UV rays while still celebrating Valentine’s Day in style. Plus, how often can you say your heart is in your eyes?!
Another accessory I like to have on hand is a scarf. If your scarf has a heart or lip print, all the better! My scarf has pops of purple, red, and pink in blue. So while the print isn’t specifically Vday, at least most of the colors are!
Get in the Color Scheme
The colors most associated with Valentine’s day are purple, red, and pink. Try to dress in that color story! I paired my black coat with purple/lilac-colored jeans and a pink sweater. It definitely gets you in the sweetheart spirit!
Have Fun and Get a Little Silly
Valentine’s Day isn’t a serious holiday. It’s cheesy and full of fun so get a little silly! Go over the top with colors and patterns. Wear pink eyeshadow and a red lip, paint hearts on your fingernails. We’re all going a little crazy with COVID so let loose and express yourself on a silly holiday!
Above All… Stay Warm
Unless you live somewhere where the climate is lovely this time of year, it’s going to be cold AF on Valentine’s Day. So above all, stay warm and stay comfortable! Your date doesn’t want you to get hypothermia, and if they do. Well, it might be time for a new Valentine.
