How To Change Up Your Valentine’s Day Look
Whether you’ve got a hot date or are flying solo and going out with friends, Valentine’s Day is the perfect holiday to make a fashion statement. Styling an outfit for Valentine’s Day shouldn’t be difficult, but we might be tired of the classic piece we wear every year. After all, this holiday is all about love so why not channel that into your outfit? It’s the perfect day to show off your personality, so we’ve come up with some easy ways to stick to the theme without losing yourself.
Wear Red – Or Don’t
We can’t help but see red everything during the weeks leading up to Valentine’s Day. For some, the bright red hues are everything we could ask for and more – reminding us of all the lovey-dovey cards and chocolates coming our way. For our ladies thinking outside of the box this holiday, it’s time to reinvent the red-wearing wheel. We’ve all learned about our primary colors in grammar school, and red has always been there as a “ride or die” staple. Now that we’re older and much wiser, we can move on to other red-based colors like blush tints and purple tones. For a sultry approach, opt for wearing a maroon jumpsuit that will be sure to get some fire emojis under your Instagram snapshot. Keeping things on the sweeter side for that first date? Try color blocking pastel pink and lavender for a light and airy spring-thinking look.
If red is just too easy to pass up, incorporate variations of pinks, purples, and whites to add some contrast without straying too far to our favorite tried and true hue.
February seems to feel like the longest winter month. Although we might be itching for spring, it just simply might be too early to give up that winter coat. Since there can always be a chance for snow on Valentine’s Day, make sure you keep warm with a winter coat – you don’t have to give up style for this one!
For this night out, choosing a knee-length trench coat will add just the right amount of holiday flair to any outfit. A faux-fur trimmed wrap coat is another Valentine’s Day essential because it does all the work for you while helping you skip the need for carrying around a scarf. Wearing a statement coat of any kind is going to let you keep it simple this Valentine’s Day and a sleek silhouette will leave you looking confident without trying too hard.
Sweet, But Make It Edgy
For all of our Valentine’s Day haters that somehow got wrapped up into plans, we’re here for you. Show off your edgy side by making your Valentine’s Day look pop with leather and mesh materials. For us girls that aren’t into the girly aesthetic Valentine’s Day has to offer, it can also be the perfect time to break out our leather pants or skirt. Pairing leather bottoms with a mesh top is an on-trend approach to what can easily be an all-black outfit.
To balance it out, top off your outfit with a blown-out blush pink eye-look or glossy red lip. Mixing these makeup and outfit elements will keep you looking Valentine’s Day ready without forcing yourself to jump on the holiday bandwagon.

Even if things don’t work out with that special someone, a great outfit will never fail you or let you down, and that’s a fact!
