Style Guide: Five Different Dressy Date-Night Outfits
For a feminine, romantic Valentine's Day dress, try something with pleats and chiffon. A light neutral shade adds to the softness of the look. A coral crossbody purse adds just enough color, and delicate gold and pearl bracelets finish off this ultra-feminine outfit.
A comfy and casual date-night outfit can still be cute. Pair a flared jersey dress with braided ballet flats and colorful bracelets. Keep the makeup low-key with tinted lip balm.
Men love a woman's body...surprise, surprise. Accentuate yours with a sweetheart neckline and defined waist. And of course you can't go wrong with red! Pair it with black peeptoe pumps, an evening clutch, and a glamorous statement necklace. A little red dress is definitely the way to go for a sexy Valentine's Day outfit.
My favorite trend in dresses this season is the skater dress. It's basically an above-the-knee dress with a fitted bodice and ultra-flared skirt, mostly available in rocker-chic styles like the one pictured above. You could pair it with strappy platform sandals, but a black high-heel bootie adds to the edgy look. Add interest with a black-and-white patterned clutch, like the snakeskin clutch pictured above. You don't want to pair this punk-inspired look with too many rocker details, but a few pieces of studded or spiked jewelry will perfectly complete this rocker-chic date outfit.
