Valentine’s day is fast approaching, and have you given much thought to what you will be wearing on the special day?

Here at fbo, we have a beautiful range of stunning Valentine’s day dresses that will wow your significant other and will make your Valentine’s date that much more special and memorable.

Below are some great ideas for the perfect dress for this coming Valentine’s Day…

The Classic Red Valentine’s Dress.

One of the most popular options for Valentine’s day is the classic red dress. Red is the most prominent colour for this celebration and suits most complexions and skin shades.

The good news is that a red dress can also be worn after Valentine’s day and if you would like to opt for a red dress, take a look at our amazing collection on the fbo website!

For a well put together look with a red dress, we recommend keeping your shoes and accessories simple as you are already making a statement by wearing a red dress. Wearing your red dress with a pair of black stilettos and some pretty, dainty jewellery will complete your Valentine’s day look beautifully.

The Little Black Number.

Wearing a little black number for Valentine’s day is also another great idea as this kind of dress is a classic and can be worn for many different occasions afterwards.

Some excellent selections in terms of a little black number include a simple shift dress, a floaty and flowing knee-length dress and a figure-hugging mini dress.

To make your outfit Valentine’s Day appropriate, you could accessorize with something red (such as a pair of killer red heels or a red, silk scarf) and some chunky jewellery.

A Romantic Pink or White Dress.

Since Valentine’s Day falls in the middle of Summer here in South Africa, you can’t go wrong with wearing a pretty white, summer dress for your Valentine’s Day date.

White dresses are especially appropriate if your date will take place during the day when temperatures will be quite high, and you need to remain cool and collected. White doesn’t absorb the sun’s heat and can also be accessorized any way you choose.

Something a Little Different.

Some ladies are sporty types and do not enjoy wearing dresses, even on Valentine’s day.

If this sounds like you and you don’t want to fall into the same mold as everyone else, fbo has some great options for you!

Why not consider a hot pink jumpsuit or a red pants suit? You could pair this with some silver or black pumps (or even some kitten heels) and then tone it down a little by wearing a neutral-coloured blouse in black or white.

Another idea would be to wear a pair of designer jeans and then team this with a red or pink blouse, some pretty accessories and a pair of heels that you feel comfortable wearing.

At the end of the day, your outfit needs to reflect who you are and whatever Valentine’s Day outfit you choose, make sure that it makes you feel romantic and pretty!
