What Colour To Wear On Valentine’s Day

With January over and Valentine’s Day fast approaching, it’s time to think of the three words we want to hear this year: outfit shopping complete. Whether you’re heading out for dinner or unleashing your inner party animal, make sure you’re dressed in the perfect outfit. Easier said than done – right? Let us help you out…

Here at Mela HQ, we want to make sure your day is as romantic and stylish as possible. Therefore, acting as your wardrobe Cupid, we’ve compiled a colour chart for you to follow this Valentine’s Day.

Hint: don’t even think about neutral shades – go bold or go home.

Roses are Red

Ruffle Skater Dress

To begin, if it’s not broken then don’t fix it. Representing the epitome of Valentine’s Day; red has been a certified favourite for decades. Associated with passion and deep love, it’s renowned for heightening our blood pressure and increasing our heart rates. Plus, there’s a shade of red for everyone.

For a contemporary take on a classic colour, fall head over heels for this V-neck dress. A chic choice for dancing in, it rivals other skater dresses with the romantic ruffles. Grab everyone’s attention when you team this dress with matching heels.

BAE-utiful Black

Black Bardot Jumpsuit

Whatever your relationship status, black is always an option. Symbolizing authority, luxury and sophistication, it also has a slimming power that gives an illusion of a smaller silhouette. Easily dressed up or down, who doesn’t love wearing black?

Look heart-meltingly good this year when you wear this spotted jumpsuit. Featuring a flattering bardot neckline, this one-piece features a combination black and red hues. A perfect choice for date night, complete your look with gold jewellery for a heartbeat-skipping finish.

Pretty In Pink

Floral Lace Tunic Dress

Finally, save a soft spot in your heart for pink. Often misunderstood as too playful and tender, we’re hoping to give it a new persona of fun and femininity. More so, it’s a feel-good colour that’s associated with passion, which we love love love.

Why not add a splash of colour and print to your day? Adorned with an oversized floral print, our lace tunic dress maintains the amorous look, while the relaxed design is figure-enhancing and on-trend. Unlike other tunic dresses, it features a stunning lace trim. Just add stilettos and you’re ready for romance.
