Can you believe it’s the end of January? You know what that means, right? Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. As I prepare for the love festive holiday I started thinking about what kind of look I want to wear this year. Although I love a variety of styles, going to any holiday in a classic glamorous style is timeless.
Putting together a glamorous look starts with a simple color palette. Classic red, black and white is perfect for a Valentine’s Day dinner and date. You probably have something red already in your closet from the holidays you can pull out! By changing out the accessories for something different your outfit can take on a whole new style. Listed below is a whole how to guide on putting together a classic yet glamorous Valentine’s Day Look.
Start with a Showstopping Red Fluted Dress for Drama
A red dress is a showstopper. Lately I’ve been loving fluted hems. They are really flattering on curvy and petite body types hugging the hips in all of the right places, tapering at the knee to slim your legs, and then giving you a little room to walk. I bought this dress last year on Amazon (here’s an off the shoulder version on Amazon) and never had the chance to wear it. Add a pair of beautiful beaded earrings and white pumps for a fresh take on a red dress.
Wear a Classic Belted Coat
A simple black wool coat is the perfect layering piece with such a dramatic dress. The one featured here was recently purchased and now on sale for half off! It fits perfectly and works so nicely with fur stole. It’s also really warm and kept me cozy when I wore it for New Year’s Eve (post coming soon!)
Add Fur Accessories for a Little Glam
Nothing says glam more than faux fur. You don’t have to go overboard - just add a chain strap fur hard case purse (this one is only$8) and stole over your coat. I’ve rounded up a whole bunch of options to shop here if you are looking to add either piece. If your order ASAP - they will arrive in more than enough time for a Valentine’s Day date.
Statement Earrings as the Final Touch
Statement earrings are a simple way to add a little jewelry to your outfit. I used white beaded ones to tie in with my shoes, but you can do red, black or white ones. When you wear just one piece of bold jewelry it gives your look a touch of drama without looking like you stepped out of a costume shop.
No matter what the occasion you can easily add a touch of glamour to your outfit. Wear your hair in soft curls or a swipe of bold lipstick. Keep things simple and classy but take a few extra minutes to plan out your outfit in advance so you don’t get the anxiety of last minute, I have nothing to wear.
