V for Valentine's Day
Valentine's Day, Galentine's Day, go ham on red wine and chocolate with Netflix day - whatever you want to call February 14th, it's right around the corner. Whether you spend the night lit by soft candlelight or neon club lights, sharing dessert for two or downing mimosas with your squad, check out some styling ideas that are light on the clichéd pink frills but heavy on the compliments.
Dinner downtown demands a little more effort than throwing on clothes to grind it out at the Reg. Go ladylike in blush tones with the silhouette of the season - the slip dress - paired with an equally demure handbag. Low block heels are perfect for a romantic stroll after dessert.
Brunch with the girls
Take the day to spend time with the friends who've had your back through thick and thin. A thick sweater dress is both cozy and flattering, especially paired with luxe velvet over-the-knee boots. The crazy flattering Hourglass setting powders will give you an airbrushed look for the inevitable group Instagram pics overload sure to follow.
If mushy roses and chocolate aren't your thing, go more low-key with an educational and interesting trip to a museum. Pair quilted slip on sneakers with a knee length leather skirt for a look equal parts sophisticated and comfortable. Art museums practically demand dramatic sleeves and the little trunk purse is a cute nod to the latest Louis Vuitton collection.
Karaoke night can be a great way to break the ice - alcohol, 80s music, dim lights - what could go wrong? A sleek look with edgy details is the name of the game - lace up black skinny jeans and a mixed media moto jacket scream cool girl while cheetah print booties are the perfect balance between sensible (low block heel) and edgy (pony hair print).
Sometimes a little matchy-matchy is exactly what the doctor ordered. Go all out for a night of dancing with a bold jumpsuit and coordinating lip color. Chunky platform sandals mean that you won't be limping home at the end of the night and a sleek cozy wrap coat will keep you from freezing as the Uber arrives.
