From a rebellious single gal look to the classic date night outfit, hopefully you’ll be able to find inspiration for whatever your plans are this Valentine’s Day! Read on to experience each of our unique takes on V-Day fashion.
1. V-Day Boycott
This Valentine’s Day, I opted for a twist on the classic V-Day look. I love pink and all the romantic colors that accompany Valentine’s day, so I couldn’t bring myself to give that up just because I was single! I threw on my trusted baby pink striped office shirt, slipped on a baby pink cropped corset to accent my waist, and then squeezed into my favorite two-toned, bell bottom jeans for safe keeping.
And to top it off, I decked my face out in black: black fenty lipstick and black broken hearts strewn across my face. The perfect V-day outfit for the girl who loves Valentine’s Day, but also hates it. :)
2. Gals’ Night Out
Full disclosure: I am not currently single (Hi Sohil). BUT, I’ve definitely spent my fair share of V-Days doing a girls night with my friends. From these, I’ve been able to cultivate the perfect Galentine’s look: something that lets you show off, is chic and edgy, and has no hearts in sight.
For this look, I decided to layer a leopard print bodysuit on top of a black turtleneck—this way, I was cozy and didn’t have to show too much skin. I went with classic black crop flares for pants, and embellished mules (from Target!) for shoes.
3. Classic Date Night
If you’re looking for romantic Valentine’s date vibes, this is the look for you. A classically feminine off-the-shoulder silhouette top in a rich material such as red velvet can immediately boost the romantic feel of your outfit. To step away from the traditional, a more unexpected fabric like this leather skirt can add a bit of edge to your look. No one can accuse you of having a basic V-Day look with this combo.
Dainty gold details also play into a luxurious feel, while the denim sherpa-lined jacket adds an interesting, slightly masculine feel. In this very unromantically cold weather you’ll definitely need a heavier layering piece-a thick jacket like this does the job. Form AND function? Wild.
