I used to be a Valentine’s Day nay-sayer. The old me would tell you: “it’s just another day.” And technically it really is, but I kinda think it’s nice to celebrate hugs with your friends and family, and smooches for that special someone on a day that’s marked for L.O.V.E. And helllooo cinnamon hearts! I love feeling that little burn you get on your tongue after eating a few hundred too many.
Don’t get me wrong though, I still think getting flowers, or random acts of “I Love You” gestures go further on days that aren’t Hallmark ridden. I’d be lying though if I said I didn’t enjoy opening up a card from Chris on the 14th. And really, why not embrace Valentine’s Day? And more importantly, why not flaunt it with subtle elements in your wardrobe? It’s another reason to wear pops of red or pink.
Showcasing hearts with elbow patches is kinda right up there on the scale of cute, yet classy. Or rocking some bright high heels or pants! Really all the looks above can be used on ANY day. Forget 50 shades of Grey, I’m all about 50 shades of Red from terra cotta, burgundy, to crimson…and who says no to wine – ever!? I mean there’s a reason we like to sport red lipstick isn’t there?
I’m not saying go all out and buy a red cocktail dress for the 14th, but hell if you wanna do it and you feel fabulous, why not? Go for it! That said, the 14th is a reason to branch out and wear something that will stand out in a simple way but also say: “hello I just entered the room!” Sometimes it’s nice to step out of your comfort zone and try something new when it comes to your outfits, plus if you’re nervous to try wearing red…use Valentine’s day as your reason to give it a shot… will ya!?
