Girls, let’s face it: it can be quite expensive to dress up. Clothes, shoes, and makeup can break the bank, so it’s pretty important that your clothes can be mixed and matched in order to them multiple times on different occasions.
This Valentine’s Day, make sure you dress to impress with basic style items that you can wear all year round.
5 Affordable #OOTDs You Should Try on Your Next Dates
Legs for Days
If you don’t mind a leg-bearing number, why not try a thigh-high slit skirt? A skirt like this can be matched with a blouse for that romantic date or even a t-shirt and sneakers for a more relaxed see-a-movie kind of look. The ruffle and wrap-around skirt are one of the biggest trends in 2018, so make sure you get one!

Lady in Red
Most girls won’t even dare wear to this color because it can be overwhelming. With the right cut, however, you can get that subtle and romantic look for a date. It is also the color of love, so it can signal that you are in for romance.
Aside from being a date outfit, a statement dress can also be used for different special occasions and events.

Cool Little Denim
If you want to look more casual, you can opt to wear some denim. You can add a romantic flair to it if you trade your usual denim pants with a denim skirt. You can pair it with a simple spaghetti strap blouse and some statement earrings to finish off the look.
A denim skirt and a simple blouse are two closet must-haves that you can mix and match with other items in your wardrobe.
