Valentine’s Day Looks You’ll Love

Posted on In Evening Dresses By Nazy Rafaeil No Comments

Roses are red, violets are blue, V Day’s almost here, your dress should be too. Ah, Valentine’s Day. The day of love, romance, and really cute outifts. One of our favorite things about the holiday is its built-in, universally flattering color scheme. Scarlet, wine, oxblood, blush, fuschia, magenta…you name the red or pink hue, there’s nary a girl who doesn’t look good in it.

The color code might seem limiting at first, but the options are endless when you consider the wide spectrum of silhouettes. Whether you want to go sexy or sweet, there’s a perfectly rosy ensemble with your name on it. Don’t believe us? Check out this collection of wide-ranging V Day-ready dresses we’ve put together for your perusal:

White and Pink Two Piece Mermaid Prom Dress 

Why we love it:

How can you not? This high-impact two-piece dress is all girl, and that’s what we adore most about it. Embroidered roses beautifully detail the tailored top, cropped to reveal a hint of midriff. The youthful effect of this abbreviated cut is amplified by shoulder-skimming dual straps. The princess-seamed bottom is designed to flatter curves and showcase a small waist. A bold mermaid skirt gives the ensemble a dramatic coda, well-deserving of all the attention it garners.

How to style it:

Go for glimmer with sparkling teardrop earrings and delicate silver bracelets and rings. Slim and slender’s the name of the game. Shoes should be strappy and preferably silver or a clean, fresh white. Keep your hair loose and lovely with a soft curl at the end. Pink glossy lips, a touch of blush, and shimmery shadow will complete the pretty look.

Where to wear it:

We’re picturing a beachfront dinner for this Malibu Barbie-approved dream dress. Something nice and a touch grown-up where you can turn a few heads – including that of your extra special plus-one.

Pink Chiffon Short Dress JVN27600

Why we love it:

It’s got shimmer and spice and everything nice. The heavily embellished sleeveless bodice sparkles with crystals, giving you the spotlight in every room. Its sheer waistline gives the illusion of a two-piece situation, with the comfort and ease of a one-piece. (After all, it’s not quite bikini season yet.) Finished with a floaty chiffon skirt, this dress is ready to twirl – and to be perfectly honest, that’s something we appreciate in everything we own.

How to style it:

The crystals take care of a lot of the accessorizing duties, so we recommend keeping the jewelry simple. Mix and match pearl and crystal studs, skip the bracelets, and stick to one or two slim-banded rings. Put your hair in a dancer-approved top knot and keep the make-up light, pretty, and glossy.

Where to wear it:

We’re dying to see this on an ice-skating rink. Partly because there’s something a touch Nancy Kerrigan about the silhouette and partly because we think a Valentine’s Day ice-skating night is the cutest date we’ve never had.

Burgundy Beaded Two-Piece Jersey Short Dress 

Why we love it:

We like to think of this as the after-hours power suit. Unapologetically fierce, the halter bodice features a strategically placed sheer center insert to amplify the femme factor. The sultry open back plays into that nicely as well. Allover embellishments add glitter and glitz, ready to catch some light and more than a few eyes. (In case you’re unsure, this one definitely falls on the sexy side of the spectrum.)

How to style it:

With no holds barred. Smokey eye. Pouty lip. Strong brows. The whole ‘I am woman, hear me roar’ shebang. Give it a powerful finish with high-voltage hair and a platform pump at least six inches high.

Where to wear it:

This has anti-Valentine’s Day party written all over it. Gather up your single girlfriends and paint the town, well, red. This dynamic duo is practically demanding to dance.

 

 

Red Fit and Flare Short Dress JVN23434

Why we love it:

This dress is one classy broad. A silhouette so sweet you can’t help but smile. Princess seaming at the bodice creates a feminine fit while inverted pleats at the skirt give it just a touch of flounce. The very appropriate knee length cut is kept from being prudish by an alluring low-V back.

How to style it:

In an equally classy manner. Tasteful cocktail jewelry of moderate size, half-up, half-down hair with a front center part, and ankle-wrap sandals with an almond or pointed toe. We think something black and patent would be a nice touch.

Where to wear it:

Dinner with his closest friends. Dinner at his mom’s house. Dinner anywhere you need to impress anyone, because impress you will in this lovely number.

 

 

Open Back Fitted Dress JVN21899

Why we love it:

See that back ruffle detail? The mermaid skirt with a short train? That double-take-worthy open back? Yeah, that’s why. That and the super sleek, super chic front. This dress comes in both fuchsia and red, so good luck deciding which one’s hotter. We’re thinking the right move might be to buy both and change halfway through the night.

How to style it:

Long sleek tresses, shoulder-skimming earrings, and a high-octane nail color. Dial up the drama with this one – the silhouette is begging for it. An open-toe stiletto should prop you up quite nicely for the many poses you’ll be striking all night long.

Where to wear it:

Anywhere with an old Hollywood feel. A hotel rooftop, a cool speakeasy bar, Palm Springs – somewhere you can slip into your newly acquired starlet role.

 

 

Red Satin V-Neck Sleeveless Short Dress JVN39353

Why we love it:

There’s something so supermodel-y about a red satin slip dress. Princess seams, a classic V-neck, slim straps, and a top of thigh cut? Check, check, check, and check.

How to style it:

Think late 80’s, early 90’s glamazon. Lustrous hair worn loose, chandelier earrings, a sparkling cocktail ring or two, and sky-high heels. To guard against the cool night, contrast the feminine silhouette with a black leather moto jacket. We’re pretty sure Cindy Crawford would approve.

Where to wear it:

This is perfect pick for a surprise kind of night. Sexy, elegant, understated, and cool, it can go anywhere the night might lead.
