Overrated, unnecessary, a made-up commercialized holiday. Go ahead, say it. Launch #StopValentinesDay2K16 if you want. Just keep in mind that even if you wanted to, you wouldn’t escape the dreadful lovers day.
Whether you love it or loathe it, check the list of Do’s and Don’ts to make this day as enjoyable and fashionable as any other.
1 – On February 14th, you are either this guy…
2 – … Or this guy:
3 – But either way, don’t moan around about Valentine’s Day. Everybody’s doing it and you’re not everybody.
4 – If you want to wear red, wear it with shades.
5 – Go on a shopping spree with your significant other: it means shopping for you as well.
6 – Dress the part. Expect ridiculous couple selfies to be posted on Instagram.
7 – Enjoy chocolates, sweets and whatever restaurant you’re paying for. Forget about the gym club, just once.
8 – Enjoy Valentine’s Day gifts. If not, sell them online.
9 – Buy him/her something you like. If your lover doesn’t like it, keep it for yourself.
10 – Ask for anything. If he/she really loves you, he/she really loves those Margiela crop trousers you would die for last month.
11 – Enjoy all the gestures and considerations because that’s the only time of the year you’re having some.
