Valentine’s Day is a great excuse to go all out. Even if you’re not that into the holiday as a concept, it’s still a great day to inject a bit of festivity into the dead of winter by embracing rich red hues, baby pinks, and all manner of heart- and flower-shaped accessories. Whatever your plans may be this February 14th, we’ve got nine top tier outfit ideas to inspire your holiday look.
Nothing says “power” like a full monochrome look. This matching tomato-hued dress and coat from The Row make a major statement, especially when finished off with edgy leather gloves and a killer pair of heels. Pairs well with a dry martini and a reservation at the most fabulous restaurant in town.
If you want to bring a bit of Valentine’s Day spirit to the office without going full Hallmark card, tonal pops of pink play well with raw edged denim. Plus, this blush Burberry trench is guaranteed to be a spring wardrobe MVP.
Cozy Night In
Just because you’re not out and about doesn’t mean you can’t embrace the holiday at home. Stay warm and cozy in cheerful knits and turn on a cheesy movie with your friends or partner.
If you’re feeling anti-Cupid this year, wearing a full red or pink outfit may not be in the cards. In that case, go moody and sophisticated with an embellished denim set from Schiaparelli and add a hint of color in the form of a classic Saint Laurent bag.
Slinky and Pink
If you need an excuse to upgrade your loungewear to something silky with a lace trim, this is it. Why not add a boudoir-style kitten heel for the full effect?
Because it’s not all about the girls. A pop of bright red against black feels fun without being too costume-y.
For dancing with the girls or a chic cocktail date, try mixing shades of dove grey and the lightest hints of blush pink. The effect is sophisticated and effortless — a perfect winter party look.
Give yourself a plush embrace with this shaggy Ann Demeulemeester shearling coat in the most sultry shade of Bordeaux. Top it off with a pair of similarly fluffy heels and tonal accessories.
For the Love of Fitness
This athleisure look is guaranteed to turn heads on an afternoon stroll or en route to a workout class.
