Heart-Worthy Valentine's Day Looks
Whether you’re more of the “it’s-a-fake-holiday-created-by-greeting-card-companies” kind of person or you’re thrilled to fill your day with chocolate in every form, Valentine’s Day is coming up quickly. You might as well make the most of the day by doing it in your own style (and also gifting the lovies in your life with some extra treats). We’ve pulled together our favorite love-inspired looks that will be perfect for a Galentine’s night in with wine and movies, date night out, or anything else heart day brings your way.
Go Big or Go Home
Sequins aren’t just for ringing in the new year, especially when the sequins in question come in a stunning hot pink that’s ready to wow your Valentine. We love pairing this bold mini dress with the Pasadena Clogs from Free People for a more casual look that gives your dress the space to shine brightly.
Not only will the Daphne Pintuck Jumpsuit bring the sweetest romance for the holiday, but it’ll also become a quick favorite that you’ll love wearing all spring and summer. With that fitted waistline and flowy legs, you’ll get a showstopping silhouette ready for this Thursday-night celebration. Of course, while it’s still chilly out, you can’t leave the house without an extra layer. And once you see try on the Not Your Mom’s Faux-Fur Jacket, you’ll never want to leave the house in anything else.
There’s so much more to love about a matching top-and-bottom set, especially when that set features comfortable flowy pants and a striking crop top with flared sleeves. Make sure you save the big reveal of this stunner for your Valentine’s dinner, but once it’s been introduced into the world, you’ll have the best time mixing and matching these pieces with all of your other wardrobe favorites. Might we suggest the crop top with your favorite vintage jeans? Okay, yeah, we’re definitely suggesting that.
Keep it Chill
While we’re big proponents of taking any and all excuses to celebrate, we love a special night in, especially when it’s with our favorite ladies and our favorite cabernet (hey, it’s red so it fits the theme, right?). For a subtle nod to the reason for the sugar, we can’t get over how cute the Heart Fiona Long-Sleeve Tee from Spiritual Gangster is. In the name of versatility, this will also become a favorite that you can pair with leggings for a trip to the yoga studio or with some high-waisted shorts like The Cody Octopussy Shorts from Boyish once summer weather makes its way back.
Whenever you have an excuse to treat yourself, we vote you take it! The Scarlett Bucket Bag from Cleobella will keep you with the color scheme of the day (so no one can call you out on your all-black outfit), and will also become a new favorite with the bold spring color and vintage-inspired fringe detailing.
We’re all about the subtle-yet-not-so-subtle flair that these Hand-Beaded Chandelier Earrings from Allia will bring to your love-filled celebrations. And we’re even more about the fact that they mean you can stick with your preferred outfit of jeans and a comfy tee while still fulfilling your themed-outfit duties. Plus, why wouldn’t you want to add hearts to your outfit every single day? Once you try these on, you’ll probably start.
Now that your look has been nailed down, it’s time to take on the gift portion of your preparations. Remember how excited you used to get to hand out Valentine’s cards and cheap candy to all of your classmates? This is like that, only a thousand times better. We wanted to help you make sure that everyone knows exactly how you feel with the Never Ever Custom Enamel Pin from Moon Water Co. for all of your favorite people (including yourself). It’ll be perfect to add to your favorite vintage jean jacket or your backpack, and obviously the sentiment will extend far beyond February 14th.
The point of the holiday is all about love, right? So why not bring a little extra love with the Love Potion from Little Shop of Oils. This gemstone-infused essential oil blend has been cleansed under the full moon and crafted to boost your love life, whether you want some extra sparks with your honey or you give it to your favorite gals looking for love. And on top of all of that, it also smells delicious.
In case wearing your new favorite Love Potion wasn’t conjuring up enough in your romantic life, add the Love Spell Ritual Candle and you’ll find yourself with more suitors than you even know what to do with. Okay, maybe not, but it’ll make your cozy home even cozier, and any good vibes are always welcome.
And nothing could complete your look better than dewy, radiant skin. Check out some of the latest serums and lotions from Full Unicorn and get ready for the glow.
Even if you try to stay away from buying into the whole Valentine’s gifts thing, you won’t be able to pass up showing your love in the cleverest of ways with a Valentine’s Day card. Our personal favorites? Well, the Pizza card from 417 Press really sums up our love for all things carbs, but the Best Friend with Benefits card is simply too cheeky to pass up.
