We are smitten with a holiday that is completely dedicated to love, and think your Valentine’s Day outfit should be completely lovable too. So whether your plans involve a date with your long-time partner or a group dinner with your fellow single ladies, play up your romantic side with a glamorous ensemble evocative of a ‘40s screen siren. Here are four romantic looks that are guaranteed to create the perfect love story.
A Valentine’s Day dinner date is the perfect time to bring out your sexy little black dress. Try to balance your look so that it’s equal parts demure (a fuller skirt or rounded collar) and daring (a short hem or nipped-in waist).
Adding a bit of rich texture can immediately make your outfit feel luxe. A velvet pant, skirt, cape, or top pairs easily with your basics, such as jeans, tees, and trousers. Try a rich palette of dark red, navy, black, or softer hues like cream or peach.
An updated version of the ‘90s slip dress trend is absolutely ideal for Valentine's Day. Try wearing a knee length or longer slip dress with a barely-there heel, and finish with a soft, chunky cardigan.
