Lovable Outfit Ideas

You’re smitten with a holiday that is completely dedicated to love, and I think your Valentine’s Day outfit should be completely lovable too. Here are four romantic looks that are guaranteed to create the perfect love story.

Luxe Effect

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.

lovableideas-Luxe-VanessaJackman

Try a rich palette of dark red, navy, black, or softer hues like cream or peach.

lovableideas-Luxe

Rag & Bone Roseburg velvet blazer $550

A Pop Of Red

The hue is striking paired with all-black, and also totally unexpected teamed with a softer palette of creams and faded florals.

lovableideas-red-blondesalad

The Blonde Salad

splash of red can be just the right amount of color for an otherwise softer palette. A punchy red lipstick, a sharp red heel, or a bold red clutch feels festive, but not overwhelming.

lovableideas-touchofred

Charlotte Olympia Pandora Perspex clutch $975

The LBD

A Valentine’s Day dinner date is the perfect time to bring out your sexy little black dress.

lovableideas-LBD-WeWoreWhat

We Wore What

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).

lovableideas-LBD - Cropped

Diane Von Furstenberg Angelica ruched mini dress $225

Whimsical

Prints are very romantic!

lovableideas-whimsical-CollageVintage

To add a touch of whimsy, throw on a printed heel! Try a floral, polka dot, or stripe.

lovableideas-whimsical

Givenchy Floral print leather pumps $620

How do you make your outfit Lovable?

XOXO
