Valentine’s Day comes every year whether we want it to or not! For some, it’s an opportunity to rekindle the romance in a marriage. For others, its dressing to entice a new love interest. I see Valentine’s Day as another day to dress to impress! Whether you are whisked away on a tropical weekend, going to dinner and a movie, or simply snuggling by a warm fire, there is no excuse not to look fabulous!!!
Elizabeth & James one shoulder dress is a sexy red hot option for a lovely dinner out on the town.
Zac Posen offers a sleek form fitting dress with a sexy neckline for a more sophisticated look. This is a nice option for a more classic dinner or a more formal restaurant.
Vivienne Westwood makes a stretch jersey dress with a gathered waist. I love this style for a classic dinner when you don’t feel comfortable with a very form fitting dress. This style is brilliant for hiding any issues with the midriff.
My final choice for a fun red dress is this Rag & Bone Geneva dress. Fun, flirty and definitely says Be Mine.
Now we move into other options such as donning a white dress and playing with accessories. I like this fun flirty Gig silver lurex flare knit dress and I would pair with amazing red shoes, and/or a red clutch. A hint of red is just as fun and festive.
Jimmy Choo has a very sexy red and gold sandal with a flattering and sext ankle strap to add color to your white.
Tibi makes a simple Chelsea dress that is another clean classic option for basic white and fun accessories. A better option if you have a few areas that you want to minimize.
One can never go wrong with black. Especially black leather in a flirty skirt shown here by Tibi. The red shoe says Happy Valentine’s day without screaming! I might pair this skirt with a classic red suede pump for a sleeker look.
Serio Rossi makes the ultimate pump , the Godiva, in every imaginable color. I have them in black but love love love them in this gorgeous red and not just for Valentine’s Day!
Pink is very much acceptable for this occasion as well. I love this L’Agence frayed crop jacket for spring. I particularly like this as an option for a much more casual Valentine celebration. Wear this with denim and flats and entertain at home.
So your honey decides to whisk you away for a warm weather rendezvous….Tibi shows us a long halter dress with a most flattering waistline and neckline. Wear with gold flats and carry a red purse to make your statement.
Thank you Christian Louboutin for making this uber fun clutch that works with all our white options. Perfect size to hold all your Valentine’s…
When poolside on Valentine’s Day, be festive in your Marysia scallop trim hot pink bikini. All white cover up and lots of accessories will make you too hot to handle.
We are still on vacation and we must wear this Indah clothing wrap maxi dress. I am all about ease on vacation and carefree dresses that make a statement.
Final category for this holiday is the long standing relationship that has a possibility of turning into a marriage proposal on this day of love. Women, if you think this is an option, make a statement!!!!! Love the flirty nature of this tutu that is playful and sexy and can make you look like a princess. My motto is always, choose just one statement piece. Work around the tutu. Everything else needs to fade into the background. I like the idea of a nude shoe and a form fitting simple top in white. I would most likely recommend a white cotton long sleeve crew neck bodysuit with this and a less dramatic shoe. You get the idea.
The absolute best for last. The Audrey cape evening gown by Ralph Lauren. This is the showstopper for the man that tells you, dress to the nines, we have a very special evening ahead of us. Proposal or not, I can guarantee a red hot evening.
Valentine’s Day is a about fun and fashion. Its about making a statement based on your individual style. Wear it with confidence and that is always your greatest accessory.
