What Rhinos To Wear: Valentine's Day
As Valentine's Day approaches it's time to get planning on the perfect date idea for you and your partner. Whether that's an weekend getaway or a candlelit dinner, we've got your casual or formal date fit sorted - just don't forget about the flowers and chocolates!
Time to spoil your special someone with a candlelit dinner. Valentine's Day is a great way to try out a new restaurant you've been wanting to try together or treat yourselves to a premium dining experience. We'd recommend Grill Americano, Di Stasio, France-Soir and Chin Chin. We'd go for a dress shoe like 'Dune', it's made with a sleek polished finish and is designed with intricate seam detailing. Wear it with a pair of dress pants and a classy shirt to impress your date or partner.
Wine or Two?
Forget the long dinner and head to your local wine bar for a quiet night with a few drinks. Our favourites in Melbourne are the Carlton Wine Room, Marion, Don's and Siglo. A chelsea boot is great option to go with, as it's an easy transition from desk to drinks. 'Drake' is one of our best-sellers as it's versatile and are fitted with two elastic side gussets for easy wear. We'd wear them with a pair of chinos, buttoned up shirt and our Dress Belt.
Since Valentine's Day falls on a weeknight, it can be hard to organise a date night. Instead opt for a intimate beachside picnic with your favourite foods and a bottle of wine. Being on the beach you want something that's easy to slip on and off. It's important to still look dressy enough to show that you're making an effort for your loved one. 'Byron' is made from premium leather with a smooth matte finish. We'd wear this boat shoe with a pair of chino shorts and a plain t-shirt for effortlessly casual yet put together look.
Treat your partner to a weekend getaway, whether that's relaxing down by the beach or a trip to one to of your favourite places together. This could involve an outdoor activity or just laying by the pool, it's important for your shoes to be comfortable and practical. We'd suggest a casual like 'Brad', where it's set on a sturdy rubber outsole and designed with contrasting stitching. He can be worn from day to night with a few simple outfit swaps. For example, a t-shirt to linen shirt or denim shorts to a pair of chinos.
