Look Sharp for Valentine’s Day

Guest Blog by Joshua Price

Valentine’s Day is a time for lovers – a day to escape from the hustle and bustle of our daily routine to spend a romantic evening with our significant other. You’ve bought favorite flowers, made dinner reservations at that special new place in town, purchased the perfect gift. Then it hits you – what do you wear? Well my gents, that’s why I’m here to help!

You want to look good, feel confident and be comfortable on Valentine’s Day – what you wear on the year’s quintessential date night will largely depend on your chosen activity.

• Fine Dining – Looking to impress your date with reservations at one of the fanciest restaurants in town? Prepare to suit up, my gents! A well-fitted dark suit with accessories sporting hints of red or pink – the traditional colors of love – is guaranteed to impress.

• Night Out on the Town – Taking your date for dinner and dancing takes a little more thought – you want to look appropriate at the restaurant, but not hampered by a stiff dress shirt or constraining necktie when you’re out on the dance floor. Pair a casual blazer with a v-neck or cotton button-up and you’ll be ready to paint the town red.

• Quiet Night In – Some couples opt to avoid the Valentine’s Day rush and stay in to share a romantic meal. Just because you’re at home doesn’t mean you should wear your PJ’s. Throw on a comfortable chunky cardigan to create a cozy vibe while you and your significant other sip wine by the fire.
