If Valentine’s Day is nothing else, it’s a great occasion to dress up. Whether you have a hot date or you’re flying solo, take the opportunity to try some head-turning trends!
Elevate your sweetheart style beyond the cliché heart prints and opt for sultry shades that play to the romance of Valentine’s Day. Rich plum tones are sensual and sexy. Megan Fox and Naomi Watts spiced things up earlier this week in dresses with a deep purple hue; Fox in a leg baring Salvatore Ferragamo and Watts in a silk Zac Posen.
Want to stand out from the crowd? Dare to rock a creamy white ensemble like Reese Witherspoon and Rosamund Pike in their winter white at this year’s Academy Awards Nominee Luncheon. The key to wearing winter white is the fabric — go with wool, cashmere, silk or leather for a refreshed yet wearable look.
Polka dots and pattern play are also all the rage right now, and are also a great look to try if you’re going to be hanging out with your friends at the movies or a party. Try a monochrome and feminine outfit like Kerry Washington’s Dolce & Gabbana black and white polka-dot dress paired with white pumps. Finish off the look with a Valentine’s Day inspired accessory like Washington’s Roger Vivier ‘Love’ and heart-motif shoulder bag. Emma Stone also showed her love for the playful print by mismatching a spotted asymmetrical skirt with a sequin striped top.
If you are looking for a classic go-to, there’s always an effortless little black dress. Get the perfect silhouette by enhancing the closet staple with a structured bodice and flared skirt, like Mila Kunis at the Los Angeles premiere of Jupiter Ascending.
