Despite what you think about the upcoming Valentine's Day holiday, for some it is a good excuse to send treats and letters to those you love, and for others, the chance to shamelessly don their brightest pink and red pieces from their closet. But if fluffy pink hearts and sugary warm hues aren't exactly your thing, have no fear. You can still get into the spirit of the day without looking like a valentine yourself.
Sticking to a stark black and white theme is a modern way to keep heart-shaped patterns from being overly sweet, while adding a cool graphic feel to your wardrobe throughout the whole year. If you do want to sport a little festive color, accessories are the best bet—whether with a statement necklace or shoe , such as these pop-art, red-heart designs. And if you're really pining for an obvious ode to Valetine's Day, glittery, heart-shaped confetti nail polish is just plain fun.
