Go beyond red this Valentine's Day
IANS . New Delhi
Valentines Day calls for everything red as people usually relate the colour with love but how about trying some different tones this season?
Tanvi Malik, co-founder at FabAlley says that red is a great colour, but there are other unconventional colours and prints that can be explored to make the special day more exciting.
* Pastels: If you'd rather have a more relaxed and soothing Valentine's Day, choose pastels as your colour pantone. Vibrant colours make things bright and glamorous, but sometimes all you want is a low-key, soft look and pastels make for a perfect pick.
* All shades of purple: People love pink for Valentine's Day because it is feminine, delicate and pretty, but the same can be said about purple. This year, choose a spread of purples and violets to add an unusual touch to your Valentine's Day.
Natascha Tate, in-house Stylist at LimeRoad too have some tips to share
* Blue valentine: A stunning blue dress can twist things up perfectly. A blue skater dress is simple yet stylish. Work it up with navy blue heels and black pearl earrings. Carry a nice black box clutch with it. For make-up, smokey eyes and neutral lip shade will work the best.
* Ruffle romance: A black ruffled neck dress is a sexy thing to wear on a date night. Work it for the Valentine's Day with a pair of sky high stilettoes and an embellished clutch. Pout on a scarlet red lip shade and brighten things up with a mineral bronzer. For jewellery, you can go for simple silver drops or a nice accent bracelet.

* Accentuate the entire look with statement jewellery like crystal, bold neck pieces, metallic clutches and high heels.

* Colour block your footwear with your outfit - Bordeaux sling-back heels with neutral pants, hot pink pumps with a white dress or scarlet ankle boots with a pair of denim. The trick is to have showstopper shoes! Match the bag with your shoes and wear silver or gold accessories for a chic look.
