Whether you’re going out with a group of girlfriends or on a dinner date with your beau, Valentine’s Day is certainly a holiday to dress up for (or dress down for, if you’re planning on spending it with Ben & Jerry). Here are some tips for keeping your V-Day especially chic.
Something red: It wouldn’t be right to not wear red on Valentine’s Day. Luckily, red has been one of this winter’s most sought-after colors. Personally, I find that red looks good in any material, especially velvet. If you’re stuck on where to look for your Valentine’s Day statement piece, check out Urban Outfitters. They have an entire section devoted to Valentine’s Day attire, including bright red dresses with sexy low backs and sweetheart necklines.
Lots of lace: A lace tee, dress
or skirt adds feminine flair to an otherwise everyday ensemble. If you’re planning on going out for dinner with friends, pair a lace top with a mini skirt and a leather jacket. This flirtatious look still resonates with Valentine’s Day.
Don’t be modest when it comes to accessorizing: Layer strands of pearls around your neck, slide gold or silver bangles around your wrists and wear sparkly stones on your ears. If you are planning on finding a new special someone on Valentine’s Day, you might as well be flaunting your best!
