Galentine’s Day Outfit Ideas:
What is Galentine’s Day?
The word Galentine is a combination of Gals and Valentine – and is all about giving much-deserved love to your clique. This concept of ‘ladies celebrating ladies’ which started as an episode of a popular television series in America, is picking up as a celebration amongst women across the world.
Why should you celebrate Galentine’s Day?
Love is indeed the most beautiful feeling; spending time with your partner can give you moments to cherish for a lifetime. Yet, there’s one bond that is always above the one that you share with your man – and that is- your connection with your girlies! Friendship is a deeper form of love that encompasses much more; your friends are your permanent partners in crime, your shoulder to cry on; they know all your secrets and you’d never be worried about that! Love may be ephemeral, transitory, or may alter over time – real friendships continue to get only better.
So before you have the most romantic date of the year, get your girl squad out together – and raise a toast to your lifelong friendship!
Choosing the best outfit for Galentine’s Day
With your girl gang, you can happily be yourself without the fear of being judged. Wear what you like-style your hair the way you want, make-up or no make-up your friends won’t mind at all! But, it’s a special day after all, with some of the most important people in your life- so make some effort to look your best as you take those instagrammable clicks!
One of the best ways to celebrate this day is to arrange an outdoor meet for your circle- a movie, a shopping trip or a lunch feast. While choosing your outfit for the day, keep the following points in mind:
Comfort above all
Intellectual discussions or gossip, fun, and frolic- no matter what you’re going talk about, you should feel at ease while you’re out with your girlies! Look out for loose, flared, and breathable silhouettes like an anarkali kurti– one of the most comfortable outfits, especially if you’re planning an entire day’s outing or a kitty trip to the resort. Palazzo suits and indo-western lehenga suits in cotton are some other choices for a Galentine’s Day picnic!
Indulge in colors
Pink and reds reserved for the next day- your special Valentine outing! The Galentine’s Day has no particular dress or color code- so go ahead and sport your favorite palettes! You go with the Pantone Color of the Year 2020 Classic Blue, a suave pastel, or a dramatic color block! Even better, you can opt for a spunky multi-colored garment- being over the top is always a good idea when you have your crazy buddies around!
Pick the latest trends
Your friends won’t judge you- but that does not mean you get laid back on fashion! Try some trendy layering, like a jacket style suit, peplum kurti, or a fusion palazzo and crop top set- for these are quite in vogue this season. And accessorize your garment well with one or two statement pieces- take the minimalism route for making an impact!
Garments that spell grandeur
Is your squad one of those who prefer elegance and subtleness? Or does the theme of the party command an imperial look? For being majestically gorgeous, you can pick a plain or subtly ornamented floor-length suit. Light and flattering fabrics like satin, georgette, chiffon, and rayon will keep your attire demure, while the softer color palette and less or no accessories will balance the grace and simplicity of your garment.
Play with prints
Checkers- stripes- polka dots- animal prints- flowers- abstract forms- there are prints for every woman! A boldly printed outfit is for meets where the ambiance is light and humorous- like a kitty party. Style a printed Kurti with a scarf and well-coordinated accessories to make you girlies go ‘wow’ about your look. If not contemporary, you can always rock the Indian look with a classic floral saree in sheer fabric or flowing chiffon- and get an applause for your attire!
Being with your besties- laughing at the silliest jokes- filling up your shopping bags- bingeing together- doing crazy things- Galentine’s Day can be your best day of the year- even better than Valentine’s Day, for unlike in relationships, your girlies won’t break-up with you!
So go ahead and celebrate- we wish all the gorgeous women out there a very Happy Galentine’s Day.
