Valentine’s Day Style No-No’s: What to Avoid Wearing on 2/14! Jennifer Kelton, Guest Blogger
While most of us think we know what to wear for a great evening (or weekend) running around with either our partner, “man of the moment” or even with our BFF’s just snagging some girl time, there are some events like Valentine’s Day where it pays off in spades (or hearts) to be a bit careful about what you are wearing! Lucky for us we have noted author, fashion entrepreneur and style expert, Jennifer Kelton guest blogging for us for a couple of posts surrounding Valentine’s Day! This is the version on “what not to wear” and there will be a post on what to wear!
Desperate, trying-too-hard and trashy – these aren’t the words you want running through his head on Valentine’s Day. Thankfully, Jennifer Kelton, CEO/Founder of DressForTheDate.com, is here to help take the stress out of dressing for your V-Day date by avoiding these 14 fashion missteps:
Too manly – Jennifer Kelton loves the menswear trend, but it has its place and time. For Valentine’s Day, you want to look sexy, feminine and flirty – so leave the trouser pants for another day.
2. Fluorescent colors – Bright 80s neons are already on the way out, claims Jennifer. You are not a traffic controller, so ditch these garish hues.
3. Too skimpy – Wearing a skirt up to there, a plunging neckline and a belly-baring top makes you look like a Miley Cyrus wannabe (AKA trying way too hard). Desperation is never sexy.
4. Designer-made holes – Clothes with pre-fab holes are too grungy for Valentine’s Day, unless your date is taking you to a truck show.
5. Business attire – Work clothes are boring, and wearing them outside of the office makes you look uptight. Upgrade your look before clocking out by packing a tote bag with some essentials that will take you from the office to dinner with ease, such as a pair of strappy heels, a sexy non-wrinkle dress, and a statement necklace.
6. Too retro – A Valentine’s Day date is not the occasion to try out a blast from the past. We know MC Hammer pants are back in, but leave them at home for V-day.
7. Bad fit – Even girls with a “perfect body” can look lumpy and bumpy with ill-fitting clothes. Make sure your clothes fit you right before stepping out. Avoid any appearance of muffin top or an overspill of boobage.
8. Bling overload – Avoid wearing too much statement jewelry. Choose a tasteful set of jewelry, like a statement necklace with stud earrings, which won’t steal the show from the main attraction: you.
9. Uncomfortable shoes – Walking with toe cramps or cutting your night short because of feet-killing shoes is just stupid. Jennifer recommends wearing a pair of heels that you’ve broken in and know you can comfortably wear for a few hours.
10. Giant logos – Flaunting an oversize logo on a date is tacky. You don’t need big labels to express your true value.
11. Ponytail – Great for the gym or running errands, ponytails are a blow-off hairstyle. Treat your date with the fully primped version of yourself.
