Happy early Valentine’s Day!
With the beginning of a new month upon us, it’s time to start thinking about Valentine’s Day plans. Cupid’s special day is only two short weeks away! Whether you are celebrating Valentine’s Day with your one true love, or Galentine’s Day (February 13th) with your best girls, it’s always fun to get a little festive and dress up for the occasion. While this holiday is often considered overdone, we simply can’t say no to a day celebrating love, especially when it involves copious amounts of chocolate and an excuse to get all dressed up and enjoy a nice dinner. For Valentine’s outfit inspo, look no further, we have all the options you’ll need to look fabulous and festive!
Incorporating Valentine’s colors like pink and red into your outfit is a great and easy way to embrace the spirit of the holiday. Whether you go for an all-pink dress, a colorful top with your jeans, or even just some heart-shaped jewelry it’s fun to feel the love with a little color. For dinner out with your valentine, this sexy pink halter dress style by Amanda Uprichard is a perfect option. The lovely shade of blush is just begging to be worn on Valentine’s Day, while the flirty ruffle and fitted silhouette make this dress stand out from the crowd. The ruffle keeps the look up to date with the latest trends, while the halter neck style adds a fresh detail that shows off the shoulders and open back. We love how the slim fit and exposed shoulders are balanced out by a longer hemline that leaves the look classy. All it needs is a great pair of stilettos and very natural glowing makeup for a look that shows your romantic side.
If you prefer a classic approach to dressing up for a night out with your Valentine you can never go wrong with the LDB. While black may not seem like the color for expressing love, an LBD is an elegant and sophisticated approach that will make the night feel extra special. Designer Susana Monaco is known for her sexy and sophisticated little black dresses, always with a unique touch making them feel a little elevated and totally fun. Tastefully placed cutouts, flattering fits, and luxurious fabrics make her pieces stand out amongst other black dresses so her designs are an easy pick for a romantic dinner date. Check out our selection of the designer’s dresses to get some ideas and start planning your outfit. Don’t forget the dinner reservations too!
When we think of dressing for Valentine’s Day, one of the styles that always comes to mind is something lacy and feminine. This gorgeous black lace sleeve dress from Jack by BB Dakota (now on sale!) would be just stunning for a romantic night out. Adding lace to an LBD softens the look a bit making it luxuriously feminine and romantic, and these floral sleeves do exactly that. Worn with some strappy heels and a shiny leather clutch this look creates the embodiment of feminine elegance and will have you ready for a sultry date night.
If your approach to V-Day is a little more relaxed, there are of course options for dressing casually while still embracing the spirit of the day. We love the idea of a slouchy cold shoulder sweater in a pretty shade of pink paired with your favorite jeans and comfy cute footwear. This look gives just a nod to the holiday at hand, and can have you prepared for anything from a casual night out to pizza and netflix at home and anything in between. If you’re planning a casual hang out with your friends, this look is a great go-to to feel comfy and put together in a touch of pink. The cold shoulder details are right on trend for the season, while the loose fit and knit fabric keep the vibe relaxed making this a perfect pick for a comfy and casual approach to the day.
If you like the idea of jeans but want something a little more ladylike, a romantic off the shoulder and flowy bell sleeve top is the way to go. Reminiscent of princesses from the past, something about the full, draping sleeves just exudes romance while showing a little shoulder adds a sexy touch to the mix. Going for a bright pop of red makes this top extra festive for Valentine’s night. Cupid won’t miss his shot when he’s aiming at that bright punchy red! Pair it with matching bright red lipstick for a dramatic look, or keep it cool with neutral lips and a subtle cat eye.
Whether you opt for a glam dress, a casual but festive sweater or something in between, a great pair of statement earrings will always take your look up a notch on Valentine’s Day. This dazzling silver pair by our exclusive jewelry designer Jeanne Ruland, is covered in glittering pavé stones that catch the light at every angle. Their geometric shape looks stunning with an exposed shoulder and adds the perfect amount of sparkle to your dinner dress. Statement earrings make any outfit look a little extra festive, so break these out for the 14th! Imagine these with any of the outfits above -- they really work with every style, from a sweater to a LBD, for a little extra elegance. Check out our in store selection for so many more earring options to elevate your outfit and bring some glitz into your Valentine’s Day look!
So, whether you are going out with your girls and celebrating that special bond with the best valentines ever, or dressing up for a special dinner with a special someone, or just keeping it casual with a night in hanging out with loved ones, we hope you have a little fun picking out an outfit for the occasion. If there’s one thing we can all take away from a day celebrating love, it’s the importance of a love for life, for each other, and of course for shopping.
Much love! xoxo
