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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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).
