Put that red dress back in your closet! We’re straying away from clichés this year and approaching Valentine’s Day in a new way. Instead of the normal “all red everything” outfit for this day we want to try something more modern but still girly enough that you feel like this is a special occasion. But who wants to pay a load of money on a new outfit when you still have gifts and other arrangements that you may be paying for? Some of these things you might already own at home, plus these are date night or social gathering friendly outfit ideas for those single or taken!
You can never go wrong with a classic LBD. If you’re like me, you probably own several of these in your closet already! Really want to incorporate red somewhere within the outfit? Try a darker shade of red or burgundy shoes instead of black to spice it up a bit. (Dress): T-Srap Open Back Dress, $40; (Coat): V-neck Buttoned Md-long Woolen Coat, $47; (Handbag): Clutch Bag, $40; (Shoes): Faux Suede Pumps, $28.
Who needs a bouquet of flowers when you can wear them. Try wearing a floral midi to give yourself a girly retro look. Pair with a d’orsay pump and maybe a top that bares the shoulders a bit. (Skirt):Peach Blossom Print Midi Navy Skirt, $21; (Top): Mia V Neck Bardot Crop Top, $10; (Coat): Elle Wrap Front Oversized Boyfriend Coat, $35; (Handbag): Buxton Organizer Mini Crossbody Bag, $33; (Shoes): Betty Pointed Asymmetric Heels, $35.
For a more modern look, try a pair of wide leg trousers. Pair them with a pointy toe mule and a turtleneck crop top. (Pants): Anabella Tie Waist Wide Leg Woven Trousers, $30; (Top): Lily Star Sleeveless Crop Top, $6; (Coat): Single-buttoned Padded Md-long Woolen Cocoon Coat, $50; (Handbag): Scuba Clutch, $50; (Shoes): Pointed Toe Mule Heels, $31.
