Valentine’s Day is a week away, so now is the time to start planning what you are going to wear, and Valentine’s Day is the perfect excuse to dress up and celebrate love in all its forms. Whether you are spending the day with your significant other or your friends and family, putting together a special outfit is a great way to show your appreciation for the people you care about. Here’s how you can put together a Valentine’s Day outfit from items you already have in your closet:
Start With a Statement Piece: Choose a piece that stands out and makes a statement, such as a red dress or a heart-patterned blouse. If you don’t have something that specifically screams “Valentine’s Day,” opt for a piece in a romantic color like pink, red, or white. (Link to red dress pictured above in the middle)
Accessorize: Add some finishing touches to your outfit with jewelry, shoes, and a handbag. Consider wearing a pair of heart-shaped earrings or a heart-shaped pendant necklace to really drive home the holiday theme. (Link to heart shaped jewelry set pictured above)
Play With Texture: Valentine’s Day is the perfect opportunity to experiment with different textures and fabrics. For example, pair a silk blouse with a velvet skirt or add a chunky knit cardigan over a delicate lace dress. (Link to mini velvet skirt pictured above)
Don’t Be Afraid to Mix Patterns: Mixing patterns can be a great way to add interest to your outfit. For example, try pairing a heart-patterned blouse with a polka dot skirt or a floral print dress. (Link to polka dot skirt pictured above)
Add a Pop of Color: If you want to add a pop of color to your outfit, consider wearing a pair of bright red heels or carrying a bold pink handbag. (Link to pink crossbody handbag pictured above)
No matter what you choose to wear, the most important thing is that you feel confident and comfortable. So, choose an outfit that you love and that makes you feel your best and until next week, be happy, healthy, and beautiful!
