Sayonara, stereotypically sexy dresses!
Trying to figure out what to wear on Valentine’s Day? The best way to dazzle on date night in 2020 is by piling on playful pieces, like statement shoes and baby bags.
You don’t have to banish those LBDs forever, but consider anchoring your look with ultra-colorful hero pieces instead: Peppy, patterned frocks, bold blazers and even an amazingly splashy jumpsuit will become your going-out go-to’s.
Whether you’re going on a first date, out for drinks or dinner and a movie, check out these creative ensembles and take on V-Day in style.
Of-the-moment snakeskin knee-high boots go with everything, and when paired with a printed maxi and bold moto jacket, you’ve got a boho-chic outfit that can go anywhere, from an afternoon art show to dancing downtown.
On the rocks
Meet your sweetie for drinks in a spicy ensemble: your favorite band tee edged up with shiny animal print pieces.
Fine and dine
Your date-night hero piece is a romantic off-the-shoulder top, which goes as well with jeans as it does with pastel pants and poppy pumps.
Punchy in pink
The head-turning combo of a strong dress, like this bright blazer mini, with equally eye-catching accessories (statement heels and a poppy bag!), will score you the hottest table in town.
A modern fairytale
For a cocktail-hour moment that’s both dreamy and down to earth, layer a pretty pinafore over bike shorts and an athletic top and pair with sneakers.
This watercolor onesie is an unexpectedly cool piece for brunch or (why not?) bowling.
