We know it’s just another one of those superficial commercial holidays. But still, Valentine’s Day is a great excuse to eat your weight in heart shaped chocolate and catch-up on romantic movies. But our all-time favorite thing to do on Valentine’s Day is get glammed up in our cutest outfit and hit the town for dinner and drinks. Whether you’ve got a hot date night planned, or a late night with the girls, here are 7 styles you’ll fall head over heels in love with.
Something Red, Of Course
This vibrant dress with its romantic feathers is a total showstopper. And like all red dresses, it deserves to come out and play on Valentine’s Day. Long, short, blood red or maroon – anything (red) goes this Valentine’s Day. Whether you’ve got a hot date night planned, or a late night with the girls, here are styles you’ll fall head over heels in love with.
Before you think about going all Marie Antoinette, just consider one or two well-placed ruffles. If you choose a ruffled skirt, pair it with a solid top. If your collar is frilled, make sure your hemline isn’t. And if your entire top or dress is accented in flowing ruffles, keep your accessories straight to the point. Follow this simple rule of ruffles and you’ll look romantic instead of raggy.
The Little Black Dress
It wouldn’t be an essential Valentine’s Day Outfit list without this wardrobe staple. Slip, sheath, flared, or lace – if it’s little and black, it belongs out and about this Valentine’s Day. Go ahead and take The Black Rose Dress for a spin with a sparkly red statement necklace, chunky bracelet and red high heel. And don’t forget the rouge lip!
Sex It Up!
It’s not for everyone, but on this one night of the year it’s totally appropriate! And when done the right way, you’ll look classy instead of crass. The basic rule of thumb is ‘hemlines and necklines’. When wearing a shorter hemline, choose a modest neckline. Try a high waist skirt with a long sexy split paired with a silk blouse. Or go for a cute pair of short shorts, stilettos and a scoop neck sequined top. For a longer hemline, go sexy on the neckline! Try a pair of pinstriped pants, matched with a sheer chiffon blouse or top and cute bra peeking out. Or go for a long dress with a plunging V-neck and long opera length necklace.
Sparkle Like A Diamond
You might just catch your perfect mate by blinding them with your sparkles, and sparkling personality! Sequined tops, jackets and skirts are effortless party pieces that go with anything. Even a faded black band t-shirt and sequined skirt will knock the socks off anyone who comes close! But like everything fashion, don’t go overboard on the shine. The only time you get to wear sequins and sparkles head to toe is if it’s a dress or pantsuit. Leave the sequined 3 piece ensembles for the circus.
Blushing In Blush
Nothing says romance more than pinky beige tones, blush pink and dusty rose. Go all out on the romantics and combine your ruffles in a pink blush top for a look that shows off your gentle, feminine side. Or combine your pinks with black leather for a naughty but nice feel. Now, add a few hints of silver and crystal, blush to your cheeks and get out there and melt those hearts!
Leather and Lace
Before you conjure up visions of 80’s female metal bands, we’re talking about leather and lace done the right way! An on-trend white lace dress looks cute and fresh paired with a cropped leather jacket, while a pair of leather pants works well with a simple lace top, while making your legs look hot! And lets not forget about those sexy dresses with a hint of lace around the neckline, sleeve or hemline. Leather and lace means you’re up for a bit of fun, on your terms!
