What to Wear on Valentine’s Day, No Matter the Occasion

It’s that time of year again, girls: Valentine’s Day! Of course we celebrate love throughout the year, but it’s not official until we see heart decorations everywhere along with chocolate and teddy bear sales going on all month long. So whether you have a special dinner with your boo-boo or planning a GNO, I have just the evening attire’s for the occasion.

For this lookbook I thought I would stray away from the traditional red, pink, and white combination. Instead, I wanted to go all black. My closet philosophy is that black is a first go-to choice. It’s slimming, classy, and can create quite the seductive aura i.e. lace, velvet, slits, etc. 

Look 1: It is still Valentine’s Day after all so why not choose an LBD with a sweetheart neckline? I chose to pair it with an oversized blazer and a statement necklace. I love how the collar of the blazer is satin so it adds contrast to the entire garment. Add a small clutch/ handbag and you’re set for the evening. Your beau can’t wait to wrap their arms around you!

Look 2: Get ready to turn some heads in this next OOTN. This little number comes with the triple threat: lace, leather, and stilettos! I went a little risqué and paired the see-through crop with a bralette. Next, I threw in some leather leggings to make this black-on-black outfit pop! I decided on the stiletto ankle-boots because: A) I’m only 5’0 ft. so I need all the height I can get and B) Because stilettos make a bold statement. Now I’m ready to enjoy the night with my friends over girl talk and cocktails!
