Yes, we know that there is still ice on the ground but we can dream of warmer weather in this white beauty. The scalloped hems, white crochet and off-the-shoulder cut make for a versatile and universally flattering dress. Pair it with a black moto jacket and tights for extra warmth now, and then with lace up gladiators and a straw hat for a beachy perfect look in the summer.

Ooze glam-rock vibes in this pleated metallic number. The body-skimming cut is perfect for a night of eating and dancing while the shimmering fabric means you don't need any accessories to shine. Pair with smudgy eyeliner and textured hair for a maximum Saint Laurent inspired look.

Who said long sleeves can't be sexy? Bring the heat in this long-sleeved mock-neck mini. The coverage up top balances out the short hemline while the strategic ruching around the waist is ultra-flattering. On trend strappy pumps and a bold manicure complete this red-hot look.

Take the plunge in this gorgeous Old Hollywood cut dress. In the hottest neckline of the season, this is not for the faint of heart. Emphasize the collarbones with a bold statement necklace and screen siren worthy red lip.

If angelic princess is more your V-day vibe than sultry vixen, this sweet Victorian number has you covered. The short hemline balances out the billowy sleeves and high collar so that it skews more modern and less nightgown. Opaque tights and heeled booties make for the perfect chic, Blair Waldorf inspired look.

Sometimes it's just too cold for bare legs and tights just don't look right. This floor-grazing maxi option is perfect for chilly Chicago weather, not sacrificing style for warmth. Delicate flutter sleeves and a squared-off neckline flatter those with smaller busts, and the long line of buttons allows the slit to be as daring or demure as desired.

Sleekly sophisticated, this blush pink sheath dress is perfect for a dinner date at a swanky place downtown. A structured envelope clutch and bold pumps paired with a fierce cat eye and an ear cuff strikes the perfect balance between polished and edgy.

If your Valentine's Day plans involve more art museum and wine bar type activities, this boxy kimono dress is all kinds of cool-girl sexy. Keep a neutral cream color-palette with thick tights and chunky heeled booties but go wild with the accessories. A long dangling pendant, brightly colored earrings, a bold lip - the more the merrier.

We've never met a wrap dress we didn't love. Step it up a notch with winter-appropriate dark florals and delicate flutter sleeves. Clean white kicks work for a more low-key date while bright pumps elevate this inexpensive dress.

For all the fashionistas bored of the usual trio of body con, skater and maxi dresses, there is the blazer dress. A favorite among red carpet pros, this bold option looks best when paired with a fiery red lip and ankle strap pumps.

misguided // $68

It is supposed to be a day of romance and what's more romantic than red satin? Spaghetti straps and a delicate sweetheart neckline combine in this perfectly flirty dress. For a full-on Dolce & Gabbana inspired look, pair with a thick cat eye, chunky dangling earrings, and sweet Mary-Jane pumps.

missguided // $51

A high shine fabric in a comfy tee-shirt cut is the best of both worlds. Play up the metallic sheen of the dress with a bold highlight and sharp eyeliner and tone it down for class with sneakers and a messy bun.  

Zara // $26
