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.

Givenchy Floral print leather pumps $620

Fine China Prints

They say inspiration can come from anywhere (films, books, music), but today’s trend is derived from an unlikely source: your dining table, and more specifically, your dishware! The striking cobalt blue and white prints spotted on the Valentino and Just Cavalli runways evoke classic Delft china from the Netherlands, featuring florals or farmhouse scenes that have been popular for centuries.

ChinaPrintsJust Cavalli S/S 13: Woven Printed Top ($435) and Printed Leather Shorts ($2020)

Fine China Print Pieces

Ruffian: Toile de Jouy Blazer ($995) The toile print on this blazer adds an element of charm to a polished sleeveless shell and slim trousers. Diane von Furstenberg: Floral-Print Leather Wallet ($160) The fine china obsession hasn’t escaped accessories. This bold printed wallet is an easy way to work the trend into your repertoire. Keds: Champion Floral Sneakers ($45) in White/Blue. The classic canvas sneaker gets updated with a floral print. Slip on this pair to liven up a t-shirt and skinny blue jeans.
