St. Valentine’s Day is upon us once again, which, for many, means romantic dinners, bouquets of flowers and boxes of chocolate from a special someone. For me, it means a few bottles of red wine and a funny movie with friends. No matter your relationship status, V-Day is a chance to show off your most lovable fashion choices. Here are mine, along with my picks for some pretty impressive gifts, either to yourself or from your boo-thang.
This first look is perfect for your low-pressure Valentine’s Day plans, like going to lunch or seeing a movie. The heart-printed sweater is girly and cute, but the skater skirt still shows some leg. But if you want to take make your date mean something more, the love-themed body wash might help out.
Bag, Asos | “Come To Bed Red” Lippy, Butter London | “Red Hot” Nail Color, Forever 21 | Biker Jacket, Zara | Briefcase Record Player, Urban Outfitters | Heels, Lulu’s | “Viva Glam Rihanna” Lipstick, MAC | Dress, Boohoo
If you’re looking to turn up the heat this V-Day, this low-cut midi dress is just what you need to take it there. Add to it a sassy leather contrast jacket, lace-up sandals, a simple clutch and lots of bright, saucy red, and you’ve officially set the mood. Finish with some smooth R&B on vinyl, and voila.
Chains, H&M | Shoes, Lulu’s | “Licorice” Nail Color, Target | Wine Bottle/Glass, Urban Outfitters | Bag, H&M | “Vegas Volt” Lipstick, MAC | Dress, River Island
No beaux, no problem. Your single status this Valentine’s Day is all the more reason to dress to kill. This mesh-lined tunic combines sporty and sexy, especially with a pair of patterned heels. Add a couple of chains and a fierce bag, and even you will look twice when you walk past a mirror. (Just in case you’re having a tough time, make sure you’ve got plenty of wine.)
