Throughout the years our perception of Valentine’s Day has continually evolved. Gone are the days when the most exciting part of it all was going to the store to pick out our girly V-day cards to hand out to our classmates. I remember one year I chose Sleeping Beauty cards- I specifically picked out my favorite one and wrote it out to my class crush. *sigh…
Love it or hate it, Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. Whether you’re planning a romantic dinner with the significant other or painting the town red with your friends, one thing’s for sure– when you look good, you feel good – so you’ll need a fabulous outfit!
This is the one day out of the year when I suggest to trade in that timeless “LBD” for a “LRD” (little red dress). Opt for whatever cut best suits your shape but definitely go with a fun and flirty look like this red French Connection “Wizard” strapless dress or this Bebe strapless “Tiered Temptress” dress . It’s the perfect ensemble for that swanky new place your date scored a reservation to or a Girls’ Night Out.
Keeping it low-key? Then pair your favorite jeans with this cute Olivia Moon ruffle silk top that I found at Nordstrom or something comparable for a casual yet classy look. With these solid red looks any accessories should be neutral and kept to a minimum. Think simple and subtle.
On the other hand if a bold red look isn’t your thing, simply switch it up! Keep your basics neutral and go all out with red embellishments. Think red belts, bangles, shoes and even a cocktail ring (not all at once please). Polish it off with bright red lips and your look is subtle-yet festive.
Whatever your Valentine style is “wear your heart on your sleeve” and have a fabulous day!
