5 Tips to a Valentine’s Ready Outfit

As I was preparing for Wednesday’s post, I looked back through some of my old posts, in search of some additional Valentine’s Day inspiration. Here are five easy ways that anyone can dress for the holiday:

1. Wear a statement piece

Go bold! Highlight your best feature, and let it take center stage by pairing one bold piece with neutrals.

2. Opt for softer hues

If bold colors aren’t your thing, choose softer shades within the same color family to create a more subdued look.

3. Try head-to-toe cherry

For those of you who really want to stand out, try wearing head-to-toe cherry paired with a soft pink lip and nails. This bold  color is the ultimate way to ring in your Valentine’s Day.


4. Accessorize with hot pink

A hot pink bag or heels is perfect for the office where you may want to keep your overall outfit more subdued.

5. Lounge in love

Staying in? Treat yourself to a cozy pair of heart-covered PJs and relax in style. I picked up these flannel pajama shorts from GAP last year; they are perfect for lounging all day, binge-watching New Girl.
