Valentine's Day: What To Wear Based On Your Status

Dating, single, married, or somewhere in the middle, no matter your status everyone should look and feel fantastic on the most loving and romantic day of the year. Whether you're practicing to love and pamper yourself more or you're spending it with someone special, you should look the part just like Cupid intended! 

I'm not suggesting you wear your relationship status around your neck with a neon light attached to it, but just because you're married with six kids doesn't mean you can't wear flirty fashion like a single girl! Having said that, there are certain styles which embody different relationship statuses, so here are some suggestions (not rules) on how to make yourself look fab and flirty this Valentine's Day!

 

NEW RELATIONSHIP

Ahhh, the first flourishes of love! This is a wonderful time and the biggest fashion accessory you can wear at this particular point is a big smile :) Of course, you can't walk around with just a smile on your face, that kind of thing can get you arrested!

Girls in a new relationship will want to dress to impress to keep that new guy with his jaw hanging open. The best advice here? Leave a little to the imagination, but a hint at everything else. This flirty Boohoo dress is funked up with an on-trend choker detail, while the Topshop sequinned jacket adds a little sparkle for a special occasion. Heels, of course, are a must!

If you're not too sure about the sparkly jacket, a LBD is always a winner on its own and you can add in some color in your accessories to funk it up a little.

THE LONG-TERM RELATIONSHIP

You should always try and keep that magic alive when you're in a long-term relationship, and what better time than Valentine's Day? This 3.1 Phillip Lim velvet mini dress is ideal for layering over black skinny jeans, or lose the jeans if the weather allows. Think sexy and fun with a pop of color on the lip, and just because you're happily coupled up doesn't mean you can't keep those heels high! 

This outfit on Jenna has a true city-chic vibe to it, ideal for a romantic night on the town with your man.

WIFE & MOTHER

If you're a proud wife and mom, you can still funk up your outfit and look super chic! This Peter Pilotto dress is perfect for every sexy mom and wife out there, because it shows personality and color while not showing too much leg or too much cleavage. This funky biker jacket can also be worn with a million other items, but when combined with the dress, you get a tough but sweet look, which is ideal for your status.

ALL THE SINGLE LADIES

All the single ladies, all the single ladies - oh Beyonce how we love you, pregnant with twins or not! This is the time to show personality, to be able to dress however the hell you want, and I'd definitely recommend throwing caution to the wind!

If you want to dress yourself up with a sexy LBD, go for it, but this comfortable yet chic ensemble on Christina screams "I love myself and I don't care!" Show more than a hint of your fabulousness with some stud earrings, and a little swagger as you walk!
