Valentine’s Day means different things to different people, but one thing if for sure...there is a perfect outfit for every date-night scenario!
Hot Date: February 14th is fast approaching. You've found the perfect guy. Now the question is, "What do you wear to impress your date?" This holiday is the ultimate excuse to unleash your flirty side and dress in something completely romantic and sexy. Try to stay away from very fashion forward pieces that will impress your girlfriends, and choose something more feminine that the man in your life will appreciate. We love a great dress for Valentine's Day, and encourage women to step out of their comfort zones and try a beautiful jewel tone like emerald, fuschia, red, or deep violet. Not only will you stand out from the crowd, but your date will be mesmerized. Stay true to your personal style, but kick things up a notch, by picking a dress that isn't totally expected and has something special, such as an open back or some jewels. There's always a fine line between showing the right amount of skin and showing too much, so please make sure your dress is in that perfect happy medium! If you're going for the skin tight look, make sure your dress is a bit longer. If your dress is more loose fitting, you can go a bit shorter. Don't forget to pair your fabulous dress with a great pair of extra high heels. They will make your legs look like they go on forever!

Romantic Night In: A romantic night in deserves just as much fashion as a night on the town, so don't think you can just wear jeans and a sweatshirt! Staying home does not mean that we have to forfeit our sense of style. If you want to wear jeans, choose a nice pair that you don’t wear every day. We love the look of great black skinny jean with a sexy top and heels. There are also plenty of fashion forward pants on the market that look perfect with a fitted tank or shirt. Skirts and dresses aren’t necessarily too dressy for a night in, either. Add a soft cashmere top to a sequin skirt, or drag a dress out of the closet that you haven't worn before. Wear the unexpected and you can always slip into something a little more comfortable later!

Night With the Girls: Valentine’s Day is not just for couples, so get your besties together and hit the town! We know quite a few fabulous single ladies that love to celebrate the day in their own way. This is the perfect night to break out some fashion trends that you would not normally wear. Take some risks and look for some inexpensive, trendy pieces that would be great fun...even if you wear them for just one night. Don’t normally wear jewelry? Look for a great statement piece that will bring any outfit to life. Don’t normally wear skirts? Try a great party dress that shows off your fabulous legs. Are you always in black? Challenge yourself to wear ANY color just this once (this is a hard one, we know). Whatever fashion rut you are stuck in, let Valentine's night be a fashion adventure!
