Budget-friendly fashion tips for Valentine’s Day
Neha Jain, Designer at Latin Quarters shared with HT Lifestyle some budget-friendly V-Day dressing hacks and styling tips which will definitely spice up your whole look to the next level.
1. Blushing in pink layers
We know you are still blushing from the thrill of that surprise date, but why not let your outfit join in on the fun? Pink or peach is a timeless classic that we often have tucked away in our wardrobe. Style it up with a cute bow you can easily find in your drawer. Then, add a touch of pink blush to your cheeks and let your lips shine with glitter. To finish off this look, slip into a pair of wedges crafted in a soft oat colour and make your outfit pop with personality!
2. Reviving christmas reds
We’ve all heard about the ‘LBD’ but it’s time to dish out the Little Red Dress from the back of your wardrobe after your Xmas rendezvous. If you’re more for a top vibe then a nicely fitted red top paired with chic beige mini skirt and knee-high kitten boots is perfect for a dash of sass. Add a burst of colour with a lively crossbody sling. Keep your hair in a playful half bun, and opt for a “barely there” makeup look that lets your natural beauty shine. And, oh, don’t hold back on the mascara!
3. Keep it simple yet sophisticated
Planning a ‘Galentines’ with your girlies? Don’t think much about the fit because “simple is always sophisticated. How? Picture a cute corset top flawlessly paired with a knee-length denim skirt, But wait, the magic doesn’t stop there! Sprinkle in some sparkle with delicate, understated jewellery to elevate your outfit. You can finish the look with a cropped bomber jacket and white sneakers or for an evening look switch out the jacket with an oversized coat with rolled-up sleeves and some stilettos. Leave your hair loose in long beachy curls and add a touch of shimmering eyeshadow in neutral tones for a soft, romantic look.

If you’re just a girl standing in front of your wardrobe wondering what to wear then let’s skip to the glittery dress that stole the show during the festive season.
