Love is in the air…or maybe not? Either way you look at, there is something to be said about this sappy holiday that gets fashionistas so excited! Whether you need some inspiration for the perfect outfit on your perfect date, a night out with your favorite friends, or even a night in (with or without someone by your side), here’s a list of some great looks that will spark interest even in the most “un-lovey dovey” holiday goers (myself included)!
Black Pleather Pants:
Hey! Don’t knock it ’til you try it (or should I say, them). These are a great substitute for the typical black leggings we all run to when we want style, but are not willing to sacrifice comfort. You can find these for only $13.99 at…Walmart!
Black, White, or Red Tulle Skirt:
This is not only a truly fun and nostalgic look, but it’s rare to see someone in it, because they are not easy to track down for adults! I was able to score mine off of the Poshmark App for around $10 a few years back. Check out the etsy.com site or you can even D.I.Y
Red Coat with some Black and White Stripes:
Who doesn’t love a classic Pea Coat? And now that winter is “supposedly” coming to an end, there’s nothing like scoring one of these on sale! Check out Old Navy’s deal on the red, wool blend for only $29.97.
And while you’re at it, stop by Target-They have their cotton crewneck long sleeve black and white stripe shirts on clearance for only $8 (the link only shows the current price of $12, so visit your closest store to receive the clearance discount)!
Valentine’s Day Sweater:
Currently on sale for only $9.99 (marked down from $20), this cute sweater from H&M would look adorable over your favorite striped, polka dots or plaid button down. Match it up with your favorite boyfriend or skinny jeans (check out my previous post on some denim hacks, too!), a cute pair of flats and you have a casual, yet glam look regardless your plans for this holiday!
I can never get enough of the “LBD”…and this one is by far the best one I’ve purchased. I’ve worn it to formal events with a pair of heels, or to work with a cute and comfortable pair of flats. Add a colorful button down shirt underneath, or a cardigan on top, and layer with your favorite jewels! Although my J. Crew Factory find is not currently on sale, I linked a similar one marked down to $62.50 from $89.50
The Perfect Scarf:
Love a great scarf? I am a huge advocate for H&M’s selection, but considering that the warmer months are creeping up on us, there are a few other stores that have great sales on red plaid scarves such as Charlotte Russe (on sale for $2.99, marked down from $15.99 for their Waffle Knit Plaid Blanket Scarf), or even Express (on sale for $20, marked down from $34.99 for their red buffalo plaid…and better quality). P.S. Don’t let the fact that it’s from the men’s line, keep you from purchasing it! Sometimes you can find a few treasures if you venture off to “their” side…and if you can find a perfect fit, I even wander over to the kids, too!
Lovely in Lace:
Lace just spells l-o-v-e. And I absolutely love this white eyelet tank from Target, also currently on clearance for $16.08 (marked down from $22.99). Layer it under a cute sweater, and then put it aside when the sun begins to shine, and pair it with a cute pair of denim shorts, or a skirt!
Gorgeous Red Boots:
Boots…boots…boots…Although this is the big ticket item on this list, you will love them forever, because they are a classic! Red Hunter Rain Boots! You can purchase these glossy beauties right from their website, at Nordstrom, or any other store that carries this brand. And if you’re really lucky, you can find a great deal through Amazon, Ebay, or the apps Poshmark, or Mercari
I hope I was able to spread the love with some of these inspirational Valentine’s Day looks, while still leaving some money in your pocket to enjoy whatever the day brings your way!
Enjoy your weekend!
