A Fashionista’s Guide To Surviving Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is that tricky time of year where we usually find ourselves putting together a last-minute outfit. For this holiday, it’s all about looking sexy, cute, and pretty, but it’s hard to achieve all three without feeling uncomfortable. Don’t know where to begin? Don’t think you can make it through this weekend? Spoiler: you can because everyone at Fashion Style Guru is here to support all our fashionistas heading out on this Valentine’s Day weekend.

Find Your Balance, Wear Chunky Heels

Valentine’s Day is the best holiday of the year to whip out those heels for date night. If you’re looking at a long night ahead of you and don’t want to be in pain the next morning, look for a platform chunky heel. The thicker heel distributes weight across your foot a lot better than a thinner heel and they’re perfect for when you don’t exactly know where the night will take you. This style will give you the support you need so you can walk for miles or dance the night away while still looking chic.

If an open-toed heel isn’t an option for what feels like sub-zero temps, look for cute and chunky booties that will give you the same effect without having any digits exposed to the elements.


For our ladies catering to the sexy side, you can’t go wrong with satin and silk tops. These are our favorite materials to wear on a night out because the simplicity works in your favor. Whether it’s a full-sleeved buttoned shirt or a laced edge cami, you can’t go wrong when choosing this fabric.

Satin and silk garments are known for their ever so lustrous shine and look great in every Valentine’s Day inspired color. These tops are easy to pair with your favorite straight-leg denim pants for a more casual Valentine’s Day outing like grabbing drinks with your girlfriends.

Mini-Dresses? Yes Please.

If your Valentine’s Day plans consist of dinner reservations with that special someone, look no further than a classic mini-dress. Is the location a surprise? It’s always better to be a little more dressed up than dressed down. We’ve curated our top two favorite mini dresses that can easily be worn in any Valentine’s Day date situation.

Mini dresses are the staple that never leaves our closest and these are easy to style with all sorts of accessories. The best part is that you can even recycle them in your closet for other outings in the future (we won’t tell anyone). Velvet minis and slip dresses are some of our favorites for this Valentine’s Day because of their versatility and comfort. Velvet and slip dresses will do all of the work for you so you don’t have to stress about going over the top with hair and makeup because we can’t help but to stan a “get ready in 20 minutes” queen.

You’ll Make It Through With These Outfits

With these outfit amping ideas, getting ready for V-Day is going to feel like a breeze for the first time in a while and these items are going to easily find some real-estate in your closet. Even if you find yourself getting ready last minute again, you won’t be stressing with these must-haves. Spend some extra time in your sweats avoiding getting ready this V-Day, we’ve got you covered.
