Valentine’s Day is only a week away, but that doesn’t mean it is too late to get ready for the big day. Stores are still celebrating with cute displays and fun sales, and there are a lot of great gifts (for that special someone, or even yourself!), many festive fashions and romantic makeup out there to make V-Day special.

Want to look cute, but not in the mood for a dress? Try a festively patterned sweater, like this kiss-print black and red pullover from Forever 21. Wear it with a pair of dressy slacks and boots, to look pretty while staying warm this Valentine’s Day.

Red roses mean love, making this top another romantic choice. It is more casual, but still really cute– perfect for dinner and a movie. Wear it with dark skinny jeans and flats for a cute look.

Black pairs perfectly with red for the special night, as seen in these outfits from H&M. Wear a blazer over a patterned dress for a business casual look, or layer a pull over sweater over a dress for a cute, warm look.

Feeling really festive? Celebrate with your outerwear. A red coat is a good investment piece to your wardrobe, because it can brighten up a dreary winter day. Wear it on next Friday to get in the mood.

For a romantic evening or a fun night in with the girls, get products from Bath and Body Work’s new sweets line. Use the macaron scented soap while having a pampering night, and just enjoying each other’s company. Or burn a candle during desert with your sweet heart. Guys, this is another great gift idea for the lady who loves scents! BBW offers deals on the soaps, in addition to the coupons they provide on the smartphone app RetailMeNot.

Whatever your plans are on February 14, getting in the spirit is easy. Add some red or hearts to your look, pick up some sweet scents and tasty chocolate, and you will be on your way to a happy Valentine’s Day.
