| February 11, 2014

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner so it’s time to start making plans and find the perfect outfit to celebrate the upcoming holiday.

Whether you are spending Valentine’s Day with your significant other, your best friend or maybe dedicating the day to spend time alone and treat yourself to dinner and a movie, it is important to find an outfit that not only fits the occasion but “wows” everyone in the room.

Here are a few tips to finding the perfect outfit on this Hallmark holiday.

Do throw away your red plastic earrings and your frilly heart ensemble. Find an outfit that makes you look sexy, yet sophisticated this Valentine’s Day.

You do not have to go to the mall and spend hundreds of dollars on a whole new outfit. Ladies this is the time to pull out your favorite shoes and dresses that make you feel confident and will surely have heads turning.

Do mix and match pink, red and white in your ensemble, everyone knows these are the quintessential colors for Valentine’s Day.

Depending on where you decide to spend your V-day, do wear something comfortable.

Going out on the town with the girls?

If you are anti-relationships or you and your boyfriend just broke up yesterday, take the time to spend the night with just the girls, a printed mini-dress with a cropped sweater or jacket would be perfect on a night out on the town.

Don’t forget to spice up your outfit with fun accessories, such as a sparkly clutch or headband.

Going out for lunch?

Throw on a trendy sweater with a pair of your favorite light-washed or black skinny jeans.

You can dress this outfit up or down with a pair of pumps, wedges or flats. Add a touch of glam by accessorizing with gold jewelry or a scarf.

Going on a dinner date?

This holiday is known as the most romantic day of the year so finding an outfit for a date, especially if it’s the first date, may become stressful. Just remember, don’t overdo it.

You don’t want your date pondering on the idea of whether or not he’s going to get “lucky” after dinner.

A deep shade red cocktail dress or a flowy black dress is perfect for a dinner date. You can either keep the rest of your outfit simple or accessorize with colors that will make the dress pop. Make it a point to look stunning.

Going to a party?

You know there are going to be a lot of attractive guys on the guest list so find an outfit that will have all eyes on you.

Stick with fun colors and an outfit that will accentuate your figure. Don’t forget your heeled booties; you will need something comfortable so you can hit the dance floor with a breeze.

Going to work?

Stay away from anything too bold, especially if you work in an office. You can’t go wrong with comfy red flats. If you want attire that is dressier, throw your denims in the back of the closet and pull out your pencil skirt or slacks. Accent or accessorize your outfit with the color red.

Regardless of your relationship status or where you will be spending your day, go all out this holiday by putting together a killer ensemble that will make you stand out.

There are so many looks to choose from this Valentine’s Day.
