Hey beautiful people. Valentine’s Day is right around the corner with six more days to go. Now I’m sure for some of us, all our outfits are planned down right to the hair and makeup. However seeing as a lot of us either thrive on last minute plans or either had no time to plan earlier, I thought I’d create a few last minute outfit ideas to help you all out.

 These outfit ideas include items that most of us already have in our closet. So this Valentine’s Day outfit inspiration post is all about making the most of what you have with your basic wardrobe essentials. 

Look 1

leopard print pumps, styling jeans, trapeze purse

This look featuring a flared sleeve top, which is one of my current favourite trends, is perfect for a casual outing, perhaps a movie date or brunch with the girls. I opted for leopard print pumps to take this look from casual to smart casual. For a more relaxed and comfortable look, either opt for sneakers, pointed flats or loafers. 

Look 2

flared sleeve shirt, white trousers, fringe purse, red stappy sandals  

We should all have a crisp white shirt and black trousers or pencil skirt in our wardrobe. Now you can’t go wrong with monochrome, hence if you’re not exactly sure of the Valentine’s Day plan, why not stick to something safe. However spice up your black and white look with accessories. Opt for a pop of colour, statement shoes like these lace-up sandals and add some sass in your purse with a fringe bag. Given the simplicity of this outfit, how you wear it will make the difference. Go for a half tucked in shirt look and pop the top two or three buttons opens. Now don’t forget to add a bold lip and a statement necklace if you're feeling up to it.

Look 3

snakeskin skirt, single sole heels 
 For all my ladies with boos and baes, this might be your go-to look. This outfit would work for a fancy dinner date or basically a fancy valentine’s day outing. So opt for your printed pencil skirts, a sleek tank top, pair it with some minimalist beautiful shoes and you’re good to go. Given the daring look of the snakeskin skirt, I'd rock this look with no jewellery and a bold makeup look.

Look 4

fringe heels, lbd, leather jacket, all black look

This final look is for all my edgy ladies out there. Upgrade your basic black dress, LBD with a leather jacket, fringe sandals, and gold accessories. This daring all black look is safe but bold at the same time. This would work for a concert or maybe drinks or fancy food in a lounge.

If you'd like to shop these items follow my polyvore account hereI'd most likely rock look 1 and 4 but then again it's not like I'll be doing anything glamorous. Hope this post was helpful. Would you like to see more posts like this?
