Love is in the air!  With Valentines day just around the corner (14th February guys!), we know how difficult it can be to meet those high expectations from the other half! There’s absolutely no time to waste so we’ve come up with a plan to help you woo your date!

Here’s a check list for the special day so you can’t go wrong!


One of the biggest concerns for anyone on the big day is what to wear? Dress code is very important as first impressions are always key.  Whether you’re lucky enough to be sitting down having a romantic candlelit dinner with a certain someone special,  partying,  keeping it low key  with a movie night, or just planning on keeping it casual with your best friends, we know you want to look your best!

The team at Tokyo Laundry have combed through our stock to help you come up with 3 key Valentines Day outfits depending on your specific date type planned.  Draw inspiration from them or do your own thing, the biggest thing to remember when pulling any outfit together is to wear it with confidence!

For keen movie go-ers, we know that sitting through a 3 hour long movie means that your outfit choice must combine comfort as well as style.  We’d  suggest a pair of casual denim jeans that are more easy going, with a muted coloured fine knit jumper on top since we are still in the tran-seasonal period. The tan coloured work style shoe means you’re ready for anything! If it’s really cold outside,  just pop over our best selling Curtmantle pea coat in navy which ties the look together!

If you’re cooking something special up at home, you definitely want to look smart and presentable to show your other half that you’ve gone the extra mile to make the effort. 

A simple white dress shirt with button up collar will give you a fresh clean look and is super versatile.  Team up with mustard coloured chino’s to keep this look on point.  A cable knit cardigan worn unbuttoned over the top if there’s an opportunity to layer up is essential.

(Make sure you don’t forget the flowers and chocolates though! )

Treating your  loved one to a meal out in town or planning on spending the evening out and about?  Layering is a necessity right now,  especially during this cold winter snap. We think you can afford to think outside the box a bit for this date, perhaps try the ‘nerdy swag’ look or ‘geek chic’ as we like to put it!

Our favourite thing right now are our jumpers layered over shirts – the dogtooth patterned blue shirt collar inside makes this look like a 2 in 1 and is an essential for those who struggle to mix and match.  Wear with fitted jeans and a warm, borg lined collared peacoat.  Don’t forget glasses and a belt to finish off the look!
