A Savvy and Stylish Valentine’s Day Party Look

By  February 07, 2014

Oh, Valentine’s Day dressing—it’s crucial to incorporate the cupid couture in there somehow, but a mess of pinks and reds may turn heads for the wrong reasons.  Not to worry—we’ve styled your party look for you. An ensemble of heart-clad chaos was cute during the days of passing out candy to classmates and crushes, but now there’s a better way to incorporate the holiday theme into your look without going overboard.  The goal: to create an outfit that evokes the feelings of romance and the right amount of Valentine’s Day fun but one that also remains sophisticated and stylish.

We fell in love with a burgundy-and-white miniature-heart print at the Burberry fall-winter show earlier this season, so when we found a dress in a similar pattern, for a fraction of the price, we were ecstatic. The beautiful oxblood is a welcome change from the typical Valentine’s Day colors, and it’s a shade that looks terrific on almost everyone.  Detail the dress with themed charms—stacked gold Valentine’s Day rings, a heart-pattern bag—but create the rest of your trendy outfit using a chic color palette of camel and black. The perfect balance of festive details and sophisticated styling choices will take your sweet Valentine’s Day party look to the next level.
