Romantic Style Inspiration
Posted on 21 March 2016
Whether it’s a hot date, a romantic adventure with your love or dinner with your best friends you need to look and feel your best on date night. We’ve gathered some of our favourite looks from the top designers to inspire you.
When preparing for a hot date only one colour springs to mind; red. This Michael Kors dress is guaranteed to turn heads; the plunging neckline draws the eye to your décolletage while the cinched in waist will emphasise your silhouette. The tiers of ruffles on the skirt will create drama as you move - a truly show stopping piece.
For an elegant and romantic ensemble, look no further than Chanel’s SS16 ready to wear collection. Baby pinks and sophisticated tailoring are the order of the day. A classic suit is perfect for formal dining or a night at the opera. We would pair the simple skirt with a silk camisole for the ultimate romantic vibe, or we’d opt for a crisp white skirt and statement necklace.
Carolina Herrera’s SS16 collection is the embodiment of romantic luxury with a modern twist on romantic dressing; pastel colours, delicate pleating and soft sheer panels are all updated. The ruffles on this gorgeous pieces remind us of a bouquet of flowers but the contemporary neckline adds an unexpected edge. The extra volume on the chest would be ideal for smaller busted ladies.
Roberto Cavalli nailed the romantic trend in his SS16 collection. We’re feeling particularly inspired by this short ruffled number. The sheer fabric feels instantly sexy while the studding and buckles give it a tom boy edge. Ankle boots are a must to stop everything from feeling to prissy, but we’re not sure if we’re brave enough for bare legs in winter!
Date night doesn’t need to be all about soft pinks and hot reds. Dior’s ready to wear SS16 collection showed us romantic looks in unexpected colour palettes and inspired us to rework our date outfits to take us from day to night. They showcased the same white, lingerie inspired, co-ordinating pieces, paired with different garments to create several statement looks. Layering chunky knit wear like a dove grey slouchy jumper and accessorising with an oversized tote bag is perfect for a casual day-time look, switch to a sharply tailored black blazer and killer heels to take you into the evening.
