What sets our hearts aflutter on Valentine’s Day? Red dresses, diamond jewelry and delicious chocolate! Whether you’re a true romantic or simply love to inject holiday-appropriate fun into your wardrobe and beauty routine, find ideas for ways to rock your Valentine’s Day look.
Start your February 14 style with a playful nod. For daytime, try a blouse or casual dress with quirky, dainty prints like hearts, bows or arrows. If prints aren’t your thing, wear bold red trousers with a slouchy tee in a neutral color. You can’t go wrong with incorporating pink and red into your look, while winter white is a classic choice. But--like candy hearts--shades of yellow, violet and peach offer a fresh take on Valentine’s Day dressing while still exuding brightness and affection! If you find lighter palettes too cloying for your tastes, consider a lush oxblood sweater dress or a feminine ruffled blouse in navy blue paired with a dreamy cream-colored skirt. Spritz on a light perfume and you’re good to go!
Valentine’s Day is a popular holiday to get engaged. Up the glamour for your Valentine’s date night by playing up the romance with a dress featuring lace, velvet or silk. Is your style more on the edgy side? Work a leather piece into your look, like a skirt, leather leggings or jacket.
To make the most of this loved-up day at home, decorate with festive throw pillows, wall decor, candles and serveware. Don’t forget to pick up a trinket for your object of affection--a Valentine’s Day gift doesn’t have to be extravagant. Keep it simple and thoughtful, like a memento or hand-written note.
