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.

119 People Reveal How The Pandemic Has Affected Their Love Lives, And Honestly... Relatable

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

When it comes to romance, in particular, people are all handling things differently and there's no "right way" of making it through, regardless of your relationship status (single, taken, married, divorced, you name it). So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

- Though as a little girl, I had the silkiest, softest hair that would get compliments everywhere I went, since I turned about thirteen I've since had coarse, dry hair no amount of deep conditioning masks or sulfate-free shampoo could fix.

- I started using the Raincry's Condition Boar Bristle Brush several months ago, and while I noticed that my hair had been softer, silkier, and shinier than it had ever been, I didn't make the connection because I never thought a simple hairbrush could make any difference in my hair texture.

- I will be the first to admit that I thought it was ridiculous to spend nearly a hundred dollars on a hairbrush, but this one eliminates the need for me to use any heat tools or styling products on it.

- I put some oil or a serum in my hair when it's wet, brush my hair with the boar bristle brush once it's dry, and end up with the lowest maintenance, shiniest hair I've had since I was 8 years old.

Bingeing a romantic comedy is always a good idea, and during this pandemic, these movies bring us one of the only elements of romance we can get.

So what does your favorite romantic comedies say about your dream guy?

Everything You Need To Know About Macronutrients, Because A Diet Should Be More Than Calories

Pay attention to what you're eating, not just how much you're eating.

Plenty of people are familiar with the "calories in, calories out" (CICO) method of dieting which can be used for losing, gaining, or maintaining weight. This method relies on calculating a person's total daily energy expenditure (TDEE) to ensure that they are not overeating or undereating to achieve their desired weight. TDEE considers a person's height, weight, age, gender, and level of activity to determine what their caloric intake should be — some calculators can factor in body fat percentage as well. When I used a TDEE calculator online, it said that my TDEE would be 1,990 calories if I was trying to maintain my weight, but are all calories created equal? I'd argue that they're not.

It might seem obvious to some of you that 1,990 calories of macaroni and cheese are not healthy at all compared to 1,990 calories of varied foods (fruit, veggies, meat, bread, etc.).

Just Because You're Asked To Be In A Wedding, Doesn't Always Mean You Should Say Yes
