The LBD

The LBD is an easy yet classic way to put together a date night fit. Grab your favorite from your wardrobe (ours is from SKIMS) and throw on an oversized blazer to elevate the look. A statement-making pair of boots such as Nodaleto’s Bulla Corta will add a chic touch. For a pop of color, we’re styling this ensemble with a pink HEREU bag and some gold jewelry like Missoma’s initial pendant and Balenciaga’s V-Day earrings.

Y2K Babe

Hop on the latest Y2K trend with a pair of baggy jeans like Blumarine’s, which come with butterfly and floral prints. We’re matching the trousers with Miaou’s graphic corset, and rounding out the look with a cylinder-shaped shoulder bag from TheOpen Product, white heeled mules from BY FAR and a pearl necklace from Mudd Pearl.

Red, Red, Red

Tonight’s the night to bring out your special red dress. For this outfit, we’re styling Norma Kamali’s Diana gown with The Frankie Shop’s blazer to balance out the bold color. Don’t hesitate to wear extra accessories, including KARA’s crystal-embellished cross-body bag and Amina Muaddi’s Lupita sandals.

Street Ready

If you’re planning a more casual date this Valentine’s Day, keep it simple with a street-ready fit. We’re sporting our go-to kicks such as New Balance’s 725 shoe with Peachy Den’s ’90s-inspired cargo pants and With Jéan’s corset style top. Complete the look with Coperni’s Ring Swipe Bag.

Staying In
