Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. Like each year the question is what to wear. It seemed so easy to dress for Valentine’s Day back then in our 20s. A mini skirt, big cleavage, we were young, our skin glowed, and we could have even worn a potato sack, we felt sexy and hot.
Don’t go that route! Over 40, we are still young, sexy and hot. However, we don’t need a mini skirt and big cleavage to show it off. We have learned that a little teaser is so much more than putting everything on display just up front.
In this post, I will show you some ageless style inspirations how to look your best on the big day. Since what you will wear depends on your plans and many other factors, I try to cover several Valentine’s Day dressing situations like going out for dinner, a Valentine’s Dance, a movie, etc.. Last year, I wrote a post on what to consider in picking a Valentine’s Day outfit.
