11 OUTFITS FOR YOUR BEST QUARANTINE VALENTINE’S DAY: THE VALENTINE’S DAY EDIT
Has anybody else spent the better part of this past year parading around the house all day, everyday in loungewear??
As awesome (and comfortable) as this has been, I’ve found that I’ve been missing the joy of dressing up and heading out somewhere.
And while it doesn’t look like we’ll be able to go out anywhere anytime soon (at least if you live in Ontario 😕), why not use Valentine’s Day as an opportunity to dress up?
Below I’m sharing 11 Valentine’s Day outfits from a variety of sustainable retailers.
As sustainability is all about adopting a slow fashion framework, these pieces are all items that you could easily wear with a variety of other garments in your wardrobe for a variety of other events in the future.
Considering that we’re all still in a loungewear mentality, I’ve included some outfits on the comfier side but still stylish 😉.
Under the outfit details, you’ll notice a brand highlight which includes more information about a featured brand that you may not be familiar with.
You might also notice that the accessories included here are all vegan.
