While all of our married friends are asking, “how do I make my in-laws happy?” and “how long does it take to get a ring resized?,” our biggest problem is finding the right outfit for Galentine’s Day!
Whether you’re in a relationship with the partner of your dreams, or still braving Hinge dates followed by dating hiatuses like the rest of us, Galentine’s Day is for the girls. Cause let’s be honest, boys will come and go, but the girls are here to stay.
The shockingly secret about single ladies, is although they may put on a ‘boo-hoo-I-hate-being-single’ face, they have the most fun. And they know it, too. They don’t need an excuse to have a good time, so Galentine’s day is just another reason to ditch the boys, get dressed up, and dance the night away.
Ask most girls, and they will attest that the best part of any event is the getting ready. While the glow-up process begins a couple of days pre-event - self-tanner, nails, shaving, hair wash, etc.- you can find a girl and her best friends all getting ready together starting a few hours before. There’s one mirror for all five of them, everyone’s makeup is mixed up, and they’re door dashing McDonald's. It may have been a cute neutral home decor room before, but now you can’t even see the floor because of the mess. You get the picture.
Choosing an outfit can get tricky, because depending on the vibe and location of your Galentine’s day celebrations, the look you go for could change completely. As fashion experts, we’ve put together a Galentine’s Day Outfit Guide based on the type of Galentine’s Day party you’re hosting or attending. Enjoy, and happy Galentine’s Day!
