Whether you’re newly dating, happily married, going through a break-up, or embracing your single life, it’s important to remember Valentine’s day isn’t solely about romance—Valentine’s day is about embracing and celebrating love in all of its forms. Which is why this Galentine’s day we’re taking time to honor our platonic soulmates—friends celebrating friends. Single or taken, below are a few suggestions on how to celebrate Galentine’s day—whether you’re heading out or staying home, plan and dress accordingly.
If staying home isn’t an option this Galentine’s day, why not head out for bottomless brunch? Faux leather pants or straight leg jeans are a great versatile option, style up yours with a satin halter neck crop top, platform heels or chunky biker boots for more low-key plans. Unconventional Galentine’s day ideas might include: a wine tasting course or life drawing class—these are both great ways to share new experiences with your besties, all while enjoying a few well-deserved glasses of vino. For smart/casual plans, style up an abstract print long sleeve top and flared pants set with chunky Chelsea boots or pair a ribbed button-down mini dress with knee-high boots.
Galentine’s evening plans? Lead the way to dinner then dancefloor in a sequin mini dress and slouchy knee-high boots, or style up an embellished shirt and matching wide-leg pants with strappy platform heels. Pair yours with your drink of choice and your best moves.
Galentine’s Day is the perfect opportunity to plan a getaway with your nearest and dearest to mark the occasion. Treat yourselves to that spa break you’ve forever talked about doing. Pack with you a swimsuit and your favorite athleisure for a weekend of relaxation. Feeling active? Plan a weekend of woodland hikes, national park trails, overnight campouts, or lodge stays.
If you’re going on a city break, why not try out a local dance or hot yoga class before heading out sightseeing?
Stay home this Galentine’s Day and spend some quality time with your loved ones. Schedule in a pamper night complete with face masks, slouchy lounge sets, and pajamas, whilst you play board games or watch your favorite rom-com. If hosting is your forte, why not plan a cheese and wine night or themed dinner party. Dress up to stay home and pair our feather trim pajamas with slippers and a glass of your finest.
