Whatever your plans may be, determining what to wear on Valentine's Day truly depends on your personal style. As youngsters, we may have suited up in head-to-toe red and pink and shirts bedazzled in hearts, but as adults, our Valentine's stylings need not be limited to such literal interpretations (though tasteful pops of red and pink never hurt anyone).
To serve up some inspiration for outfit ideas for February 14, we've rounded up some of our favorite day-to-night stylings from fashion week It girls to get you started. From white ankle boots to gingham midi-skirts to long coats in crushed velvet, these ensembles feature today's coolest trends in fresh, distinctive ways.
Valentine's Day falls on a Wednesday this year—meaning it's the perfect occasion to wear pink or sport another cheeky design.
Sometimes just a couple pops of red are all you need to pay homage to the holiday.
A statement skirt is the perfect piece to transition from day to night.
Try a gingham print that feels fresh and nostalgic at the same time.
White ankle boots look good with almost everything. Try a ribbed sweater in a bold color and wide-leg pants for a retro look.
Statement pants in any shade of pink are the ultimate piece to step out in on Valentine's Day. Turn up the cool factor by pairing with a cool leather jacket and casual sneakers.
Go for a romantic vibe in an airy blouse and oversize earrings.
If you're going to work a monochrome look, bright red in contrasting fabrications makes a cool statement.
Dress up a jeans-and-button-down combo with a pretty coat and look-at-me ankle boots.
For a look that's more relaxed, mix some red pieces into your ensemble and pare it back with black.
Velvet is a failsafe addition to any Valentine's Day outfit. Work it into your ensemble as a statement coat or look-at-me heels.
Sometimes all you need as a nod to Valentine's Day is a pair of rose-colored glasses.
Hot pink is an eye-popping color to play with and looks lovely when paired with neutrals.
Make a statement with a pink or red faux-fur jacket over an otherwise streamlined outfit.
When it doubt, stay cozy in a crew-neck sweatshirt and pair it with a satin skirt for a dressy yet effortless juxtaposition.
