even if you hate pink.
Love it or hate it, Valentine’s Day is coming up — and whether you’re single or in a sickeningly cute, PDA-filled relationship, don’t lie — you want to look cute on the 14th of February. It’s a day where you have an excuse to go all out, from lovey-dovey notes (poetry is acceptable…kinda) to inordinate amounts of pink in your outfit. So even if you hate pink, here are some Valentine’s Day-approved outfits that are one part cheesy (really, you can indulge!) and one part fashionable.
Mullet tops are all the rage, and when sheer, can you really say no? Get a little glitzy with a rose gold watch, a cocktail ring and a gold envelope clutch — a little much? Perhaps, until you balance out the glam with nude heels and dark wash skinny jeans — Hudsons are my favorite (so soft you can sleep in them!) — so whether you’re dancing the evening way at girl’s night or having dinner with the boyf, you’re cute and comfy.
Dropped Back Sleeveless Shirt, Topshop, $48; Hudson Collin Skinny Jeans, Bloomingdales, $209; Sergio Rossi Peep Toe Platforms, DSW, $400; Lanvin Miss Sartorial Envelope Clutch, $1,290; MICHAEL Michael Kors Rose Gold Glitz Sport Watch, $250; Alexis Bittar Oval Ring, StyleBob.com, $240.
Get crazy and show off your girly-tough side with mismatched patterns, this season’s neons and a black leather bracelet. If you’re going to wear two (two!) shades of pink, top it off with a neutral-colored shirt. Leopard print shoes bring a little attitude to your outfit, but beware, this outfit is only for the most daring of girls.
