When you’re in a relationship on Valentine’s Day, the holiday can really be special. You can make it even more memorable by coordinating your Valentine’s Day outfits. Whether it’s just for fun, or you want to take adorable photographs that will forever remind you of your love, a matching outfit is one way to make the day spectacular. Here are some tips to help you coordinate your outfits for Valentine’s Day.
Perhaps the easiest way to match Valentine’s Day outfits is to coordinate colors. The day is full of reds, pinks, purples, baby blues, mint greens, and other soft colors. There are several ways you can coordinate colors from wearing different shades in the same color family to wearing complementary colors like purple and yellow or pink and green. Choose one clothing item that you and your partner will match, such as your shirts so that you can still express your individuality elsewhere.
Another idea for color matching is to match the color of your pants or skirt with the color of his shirt or vice versa. You don’t even have to go for solid colors. Just matching one of the colors in your shirt with the solid color of his pants will look sweet in person and will stand out in photographs.
A fun way to coordinate his and her Valentine’s Day outfits is to get matching t-shirts that have slightly different sayings. For example, his shirt might say “I’m Hers” and yours would say “I’m His.” You could choose any number of phrases that clearly indicate you’re a couple, but the shirts would be designed in exactly the same color and font. There are plenty of Valentine’s Day-themed t-shirts that have couples-related phrases on them so you shouldn’t have trouble finding them. This is a more casual way to coordinate your outfits for Valentine’s Day, but it’s also a lot of fun.
Instead of matching colors or phrases on a shirt, try matching fabric instead. Perhaps you can both wear a flannel shirt and blue jeans, or maybe you can wear a satin dress and he can wear a satin shirt. While this is a subtle way of coordinating outfits for Valentine’s Day, it’s also a more fashionable way to show you’re together without being obvious. This option might be best for people who aren’t sure they want to wear matching couple outfits in the first place. You can still match each other and not have it seem too conspicuous.
Another way to coordinate couple outfits for Valentine’s Day that is less obvious than colors and phrases is to choose a single accessory that matches. Perhaps it’s a hat or a pair of sunglasses, or a necklace or watch. Finding similar (or identical, if you wish) accessories is an understated way of showing your commitment to each other on this special day of love.
If there’s one day of the year that couples should coordinate their outfits, it’s Valentine’s Day. This year, show your partner how much you love them by stepping out in matching outfits.
