Whether your other half made reservations at your favorite restaurant or you've gathered the girls for drinks, this February 14 is a good excuse to have a bit more fun with your outfit. We're inspired by the romantic feel of the day, but you don't have to buy a whole new outfit to look spectacular.
Take a peek into your closet, get a little creative, and possibly buy a pair of bright red pumps—who doesn't want bright heels?—to put together a pretty and sophisticated look for this holiday. We're guessing you already own a striped tee, white dress or skirt, and of course, a black dress. Below, see how to make the most of these pieces.
Headed to the movies with your best gals? Get comfy with a striped sweater or tee (a fantastic style staple), dark denim, and flats—bonus if they're cheeky leopard print! A pretty little Valentine's accessory, like a simple rose charm necklace in red, may be worth the purchase, or just dig into your jewelry box for a fun pink or red piece.
Muted, light pastels are super feminine and chic. Pull out that white or cream dress or skirt you save for the summer and pair with burgundy or black tights for a stark contrast. If you have separates like a white skirt and cream sweater, try them together! With practical wedges and a sparkly statement necklace, you're set for a sweet dinner date.
A little black dress is a no-brainer for a special event, but paired with bright and punchy red heels (or any colored heels you may have!), it's a winner. A wrap silhouette looks gorgeous on every body type. Pair your LBD with dangling statement earrings, like these flirty and eclectic tassel earrings, and an evening clutch and you're a sight for the night.
