Whether you’re planning for a first date or the twentieth, a casual evening with your best friend or a steamy tryst with a stranger, feeling confident and sexy starts with the right outfit. From Victorian-inspired romance to bodacious bombshell, here are some looks to try this Valentine’s Day.
1. A Jane Austen Romance
Deep, jewel tones off-setting warm pastels with flowing lace and brocade embellishments will bring out the romantic in you. Pair these pieces with a velvet blazer and pendant necklaces to keep things modern. Be sure to wear plenty of loose, flowing curls that frame your face and keep your makeup natural to really make this look stand out.
2. Mad Girl
Calf-grazing pencil skirts, loose waves and a red lip will make you feel like a lady and make sure he treats you like one. Sexy stilettos and a perfect cat’s eye eyeliner really tie this look together but to keep things fresh, look for unexpected colors and warm textures.
3. Lolita Innocence
Cherry red lips and short circle skirts work best on petite women who can rock the Lolita look without appearing childish. Look for dresses with large bows or back accents and pair with sexy pumps to balance your look.
4. Every Guy’s Girl
If you’re keeping it casual this Valentine’s Day, be sure to add some girly elements to stay on the cute side of comfy. Think loose cashmere sweater with distressed skinny jeans or if you’re staying at home, pair a luxurious pair of modal yoga pants with a silk cami to look sexy while staying comfy.
