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.
Stores like Lord & Taylor are stocked with a variety of reds and pinks, to match any skin tone. Dress up for a fancy date in one of these cute mini dresses, a comfy cardigan, dark tights and cute heals.
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.
Go for a more subtle look by wearing a top with a pattern sown in, like this heart embellished sweater from Kohl’s.
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.
Not feeling like wearing red, but still want to get in the Valentine’s Day spirit? Heart sweaters are really popular right now, and can be found in many colors, like this turquoise and black sweater from Forever 21.
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.
Don’t forget the accessories! Adding jewelry takes the look to the next level.
Guys, your lady would love to get a gorgeous necklace, ring or bracelet. You don’t always have to spend a lot, as long as it’s something thoughtful and pretty that you know she will love.
While you’re getting ready for the big night, use some sweetly scented products, like Philosophy’s My Heart to Yours shower gel and lotion set, to feel your best. Guys– this is also a great gift if your woman loves scented products.
Laura Geller also added some love to this gorgeous Baked Heart blush set.
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.
Chocolate is always a great gift idea. Make your lady’s day with this puppy one from Russel Stover.
Want to get her an extra adorable present? Pick up a heart-shaped box of Godiva truffles and an adorable plush teddy bear, for a sweet gift your significant other will never forget.
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.
