Love is in the air! It is that time of year once again when lovers exchange gifts, flowers, and chocolates. They stage romantic dinners, and men and women alike go the extra mile to make the day memorable.
In Africa, Valentine’s day grows in popularity more and more each year. Since every woman wants to look alluring and special, we want to give attention to Valentine’s Day outfits for women with a focus on Afro-themed outfits. Donning a flattering outfit is not only great for confidence but makes him feel lucky to have you.
Why the Fuss about Valentine’s Day?
Valentine’s day was originally celebrated as a festival known as Lupercalia in ancient Rome. This Roman celebration was observed in mid-February and was associated with fertility rites and the birth of spring. It was not until the 14th Century that the feast of Saint Valentine was established and later became a day of romance.
It is natural for couples who have been together for some time to get into a rut. They get familiar with each other and lose the “spark”. With children in the picture, couples begin to drift further apart.
That is why some couples choose this day to make time out of their busy schedules and focus on their partners. Some try to recreate their first date and take their minds back to the qualities that attracted them to their partner. Others arrange to get away for a day or two to share in activities that they both enjoy. This can go a long way towards renewing feelings of love and appreciation for each other.
Valentines Day outfits for Women to make them glow
The famous designer Oscar de la Renta once said, “Fashion is about dressing according to what’s fashionable. Style is more about being yourself”.
