Unconventional Valentine’s Day Gifts For Her

Ah Valentine’s Day. A day relished by lovers, despised by others. I personally am right in the middle. I like nice gestures but not all of the sappy stuff. My most memorable Vday dates include drinks and live music at Cafe Wha, Dave and Busters, and The Who concert (that was actually my gift to him). Gentlemen, feel free to steal those ideas.

When it comes to gifts there are your standard flowers and chocolates, but let’s think outside the box. Here is my list of gift ideas that should satisfy your romantic, hipster, foodie, even kinky gal.

1. Is she stylish? Heart Shaped Sunglasses. $16. Get them HERE

Wearing: Urban Outfitters Sweater (similar HERE) // Akira Pants // Aldo Booties (similar HERE)

 

I’m not typically one for florals but this fuzzy little sweater just really does it for me. It seems to do it for others too because everyone wants to touch me it when I wear it  Of course anything too feminine is too much for me so I toughened up the look by adding these faux leather (the middle schooler in me wanted to say “pleather” so badly) pants and the combat style booties.

Menswear Monday’s : Chinos And A Pop Of Color

Ariel Peche, Ariel Peche Homme

 Wearing: Theory Shirt // Top Man Pants // Jcrew Sweater // J. Shoes Boat Shoes

All men are created equal, but some happen to be quite adorable. This client wanted a casual outfit that stood out without being flashy.

Chinos get a bad rap because the word conjures images in guys’ heads of pleated khaki pants. This does not have to be the case! Chinos, especially slim ones, are a great way to elevate a look. Try a grey pair like this one. They go with everything and the slimmer leg just looks classic and put together. If you want an outfit to stand out but don’t like a busy pattern, go for a solid look with a brighter sweater to look understated, yet stylish.
