Fellas, Try These 3 Cute Unexpected Trends To Be Fashion Forward This Valentine's Day

Valentine's Day, but make it fashion.


Guys, Valentine's Day is almost here (Yikes) and by now your S.O has probably brought up in either minor hints or major ones that you two should do something special. This implies you two either dressing up(or down, if you catch my drift) and spending some much-needed romantic quality time together. BUT HOLD UP. This year you simply can't get away with the same lame get up, especially when your S.O will probably be dressed to the 9's. So, while you either prepare for this amazing date you are planning or plan on being taken on, why don't you try and switch things up fashion-wise.

1. Shoelaces.

Maybe making a huge outfit statement isn't really your thing. That's OK, let's keep things cool but still really festive by just changing up your shoelaces. Now before you get your laces in a bunch, hear me out on this trend. When you think about an understated piece of fashion, you want it to be just that, understated. So, instead of throwing on a loud red tie, you can just swap out your laces. Plus, for anyone who notices it'll be a nice little surprise and it's those little touches that make it look like you actually tried to make your outfit "fashion."

I highly recommend if you plan on trying this trend to check out Their laces come in a bunch of different styles and are super high quality. You're feeling stripes for this valentines day, check these out. Maybe you have a thing for polka dots, check these out. Or maybe you're a solid color kinda guy, they've got you covered. So even after this Valentine's Day, if you have a formal dinner, party or any kind of event where you want to spruce up your outfit, you'll have fashionable laces that will probably outlast your shoes.

2. Think Pink.


Everyone who dresses up on Valentine's day always thinks that they should wear the color red. Don't be afraid to splash a bit of pink instead of red on your outfit. It is Valentine's day after all and you could probably find at least one thing in your outfit to be pink. Maybe you could switch up your regular date dress pants this rose toned pair from Amazon. So, colorful pants aren't exactly working for you, have you tried changing up your blazer? If you plan on maybe going out for a bit of a fancier affair, swap out your plain dress coat for this blush blazer from Macy's. You'll look festive yet sophisticated. If getting something that is a bit fancier isn't you and bae's cup of tea, then keep your outfit cute and casual. Maybe throw on this pink casual jacket from ASOS over your plain white T. Who would have thought you'd look so pretty in pink!

3. Florals.


So, you want to be festive for Valentine's Day but you don't really want to invest in something you'll probably never wear again. Which is perfectly fine, I mean there are only so many uses for a bright pink jacket. So why not go for a more floral look? I mean Valentines Day is pretty much the holiday that opens up spring, so it's pretty much a match made in heaven. For your fancier/ dress up because we are going to a nice date why don't you try tucking this floral button up from Zara into your trousers and throw a plain black blazer/ sports coat. Not feeling like being super dressy? That's cool too, Forever21 has a nice selection of florals, try wearing this floral shirt with a nice pair of jeans and that pink jacket I mentioned before. You'll look so fresh for your date!

I hope you found any of these styling tips for your Valentine's Day date useful. Remember guy's at the end of the day, all your s/o cares about is being with you, so I wouldn't stress too much on the details of who is wearing what because you'll probably be ripping it off each other at the end of the night.

11 Things You Know To Be True If You Have A Big Booty

Yes, I know you like big butts and you cannot lie.

Having a big butt has its ups and its downs. For example, I love being confident in my body and looking great in the clothes I wear, but finding clothes that actually fit is a problem. With everyone trying to look like a Kardashian, big butts are all the rage, but it's not always all that it's cracked up to be!

1. All bathing suit bottoms are cheeky.

I have to get a pair of bottoms two sizes bigger than I have to get a top. Even when I do that, the bottoms still look cheeky. Imagine what actual cheeky bottoms look like. *blushing emoji*

2. Shorts? Also cheeky.

I love a cute pair of short shorts, but no matter the size, they're just going to ride up. I'll be spending most of the time worrying about pulling my shorts down. Why can't I look cute and be comfortable????

3. Trying to squeeze through a tight area is nearly impossible.

Stomachs can be sucked in when it comes to squeezing through. You can't suck in your butt when your trying to get through. Most of the time, it's like a bull in a china shop that takes out everything and everyone in its path.

4. Shopping for jeans is a nightmare.

People complain that my jeans look painted on, but if I got them any bigger, they'd hang off of my waist. If they fit in the butt, they don't fit in the waist. And the fit in the thighs are a whole different story. You can't have it all.

5. When you finally do get that perfect pair of jeans, this happens.

All I have to say is, UGH!!!


Debatably the biggest con to having a big butt. I have to pick out a wedgie at least twelve times a day. The day I can find a pair of underwear or an outfit that doesn't get lost in my cheeks will be the day I can die happily.

7. People automatically assume you can dance.

Some girls with big butts know how to move them. I am not one of those girls. My butt size and my ability to dance are totally unrelated. I may look like I know how to move, but my lack of coordination and rhythm will tell you a different story.

8. Your butt is always used as a pillow.

I've come to terms with the fact that my butt doubles as a comfy lying place for people's heads. I'm glad that I can be of service.

9. Bodycon dresses are a blessing and a curse.

You definitely have the Kardashian look going on in a bodycon dress, which is a major plus. That is, until you try to bend over or lift your arms at all. Then, you give everyone in the room an all access pass to Flashville. Sorry to all the people who have seen parts of me they might not have wanted to when I've dropped my phone.

10. You know every word to songs about big butts.

From "Baby Got Back" to "Fat Bottomed Girls" to "Bootylicious," lyrics about big butts are so relatable. You can catch me rapping/singing every word when one of these songs come on.

11. How you feel knowing big butts are finally the trend...

My whole life, I wanted to be the skinny girl with the perfect body because that's what everyone thought was beautiful. I spent years hating my body, specifically my butt, because I wasn't shaped like the girls in the magazines. Finally, society accepts girls with bodies like mine and I couldn't be happier! But, what I've learned over the years is that all shapes and sizes are beautiful as long as I'm happy with myself.

It's a blessing and a curse (but mostly, a blessing). IF YOU GOT IT, FLAUNT IT!
