Have you been promised an evening out on Valentine’s Day? Or perhaps you’re holding out hope for a surprise meal in a classy establishment? Whatever your plans, it pays to be prepared when it comes to your outfit of choice. February 14th may still be a month away, but now is the time to pick up a designer bargain in the remaining January sales. And why stop at just a new dress? This is the ideal opportunity to treat yourself to a complete top to toe outfit including those all-important undergarments and save money with My Favourite Voucher Codes.
Some will consider a Valentine’s outfit incomplete without the requisite sexy bra and pants set underneath – even if you’re not planning on showing them to anyone, wearing them can give you a bit of a boost. For full-on sexy, Lovehoney voucher codes can provide you with MANY different options depending on your preferences (along with a 10% discount for first time customers), and their Lovehoney Casmir Satin Underwired Bra and Suspender Set (£34.99 before discount) is a good example of sexy with a small amount of support thrown in.
If you want some undergarments that can be worn on other occasions whilst still retaining their sexy credentials, Gossard have lots available in their up to 80% off sale, but we particularly love the Lustful Padded Balcony Bra (was £22, now £13) with matching Lustful Briefs (were £20, now £12).
Not So Sexy Undies
Now, there is another option. If you don’t give two hoots about revealing underwear, but want to create an impact with your outfit then shapewear is the answer - forget what they look like without clothes on top and think about the stunning figure you’ll end up with. Debenhams can save you up to 70% off in their Blue Cross sale and you can pick up the Ten Cate Taupe Perfect Silhouette High Waist Shorts (were £47, now £37.60) or The Collection Dark Red Medium Control Slip (was £35, now £17.50) as well as many more options.
Obviously the most important part of your outfit, and also obviously, there’s no one-style-fits-all suggestion here. But with the many, many dresses available on sale via Debenhams promo codes you’ll be sure to find something that suits. Our two suggestions are stand-outs thanks to their combination of stylish and sexy – the Wallis Black Panelled Lace Shift Dress (was £55, now £49.50) and the No 1 Jenny Packham Navy Embellished Knee Length Dress (was £99, now £29.70) both represent excellent value right now.
We’ve picked shoes from Debenhams that contrast with a dark coloured dress, plus they also appreciate the fact that it’s still going to be cold out and have a closed toe – it is possible to be both cute and comfortable, ladies. The Quiz Rose Gold Glitter Ankle Strap Shoes (were £24.99, now £19.99) can add a touch of sparkle to proceedings, and we can’t suggest some suitable Valentine’s Day shoes without going for something like the Principles by Ben di Lisi Red Patent High Court Shoes (were £35, now £24.50), now can we?
The right bag and jewellery can make or break an outfit. Again, Debenhams have plenty of choice available in their sale, but we particularly love these three picks – the Roland Cartier Maroon ‘Breslin’ Pleated Satin Clutch Bag (was £33, now £16) continues the red theme, the J by Jasper Conran Designer Silver Crystal Circle Rhondel Necklace (was £20, now £8) is stylish and understated, and the Simply Silver Sterling Silver Pave Disc Hoop Earrings (were £15, now £6) will finish everything off nicely.
So even if your romantic evenings doesn’t quite live up to expectations, at least you’ll look completely fabulous and get a decent meal out of it, right?
