In the past few years, we've seen a real focus shift from Valentines Day to Galentines Day, and honestly...we kind of love it! Whether you're going out for dinner with your old besties from college, drinks with your work crew, or a chilled movie and chinese takeway night with your sister, we've got the ultimate outfits you need this year as you get ready to show the girls in your life some love!
You know us well enough by now to know just how much we love the simple mini dress! This is one of our go-to styles for a night out, and I can already tell that this one from Ivy Lane will be coming home with me this weekend! It's no secret that we love a square neckline as a way to show off a little bit of skin, while not being as revealing as a v neck or sweetheart neckline. This dress also boasts another one of our most loved styles: the puff sleeve! This is a foolproof way to get a super slimming effect on the top of the arms and adds plenty of volume to the top of the body. Finally, the tiered bottom has a flattering effect on the legs, and balances out the puff sleeves by adding the same volume to the bottom of the body. All of this combined with the romantic dusty pink colour and all over florals creates a style that we can't help but fall in love with!
We love a shift dress for the simple reason that it can be dressed up or down so easily! Simply pair with tights and boots for the perfect look for lunch with your girls, or with heels for drinks after work! We're obsessed with the fun abstract print and bold colours of this dress, as they add such a playful feel to an otherwise simple style. Another plus is that this style is designed to be a more relaxed fit that doesn't cling to the body and will instead hang really nicely from the shoulders and skim over the tummy and hips, and this means one thing as we're concerned: a guilt free slice of cake for desert! Looking to add a little bit more waist definition here? It's super easy to do this by pairing a belt.
Just as we love our mini dresses, we feel that leathers on a night out are always a great way to add a touch of edge to an outfit. This is often such a nice change from jeans and a nice top, especially if you find yourself wearing jeans most of the week, as this can often make them feel too casual for a night out. We love this one in particular paired with a top that will bring a more feminine feel to this outfit and really highlight the drama that a pair of leathers will bring to your look, just like this pink satin top from Ivy Lane.
Going for more of a relaxed movie night with the girls? Comfort is always key and we challenge you to find something more comfortable than a sweatshirt and joggers co-ord! And the best part is that these matching tracksuit outfits are still bang-on trend after the return of Y2K fashion last year, so we promise that nobody will bat an eyelid when you wear this to nip to the corner shop at 11pm when you inevitably run out of wine!
