4 Inspiring Outfits For Valentine’s Day

If you want to show off your fashion credentials on Valentine’s Day without scaring off your date, take inspiration from these stylishly chic street style stars. Remember, your outfit should be a point of interest but not the only topic of conversation.

This Victoria Beckham outfit is the epitome of understated chic. The contrasting stripes make it look fashion-forward, while the fitted silhouette creates a gorgeous hourglass shape. This outfit highlights beautifully a woman’s?waist and ankles so although?there’s no flesh on show it’s still very sexy. Look for less expensive versions at River Island, Zara and DKNY.

High-waisted jeans create a sophisticated rather than an urban silhouette. I love how this lady has paired hers with a velvet cropped top. It showcases her waist and hips beautifully. Also, the texture of her top adds depth to the outfit and elevates the?whole look. Tactile pieces are always a good choice for date night! J Brand is one of the best labels for high-waisted jeans. Or try uterque.com and River Island.

I’d probably swap the white Chelsea boots for a heeled ankle boot or a shoe, but otherwise this is an ideal outfit for Valentine’s Day. The conservative polo-neck feature is juxtaposed with an erotic bare shoulder for a very sexy look. This?bare shoulder coupled with a bare ankle would look incredible.

A slip dress may seem like an obvious choice for Valentine’s Day, but coupled with this very masculine-looking leather coat, it becomes a much more unique choice. There’s a lovely balance here between masculinity and femininity. River Island Studio has a great slip dress, at a significant discount right now, while Zara is always a good bet.
