With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, people all over are trying to make dinner reservations and/or find the perfect gift. I have spent the last couple days working on the PERFECT card for my boyfriend, the last couple of weeks apart have been particularly hard on us and to save money we have decided to not buy each other gifts this year (however, if he asks I have a list of things he could buy me). Anyway, I wanted to put some real brainpower into making something that will not only remind him just how amazing he is, but most importantly make him laugh. Yet, I would totally be lying if I said I didn’t put just as much effort into finding the perfect V-Day outfit. Like usual, I have spent most of my class days browsing Pinterest for some Valentine’s inspiration and after hours of scouring my favorite stores I have put together the perfect ensemble, which I will reveal to you all in a couple of weeks. Since, there is still plenty of time for express shipping, I have decided to share some of my favorite pins to aid you in your own search for a classy and romantic outfit.

Tulle for Valentine’s Day. It’s obviously classic, girly and romantic, but it may be a little overdone. If you’re as obsessed and addicted to the tulle skirt as I am, surprise them with an all black tulle look. It’s unexpected, a little sexy and completely stunning! You’ll turn heads as soon as you walk into the room. No one said black can’t be romantic. Black wedding dresses are even and up and coming trend! So what are you waiting for? Go get ’em stunner!

Feeling more classic this Valentine’s dat? Give them some true vintage romance with a light floral and airy piece. A dress or skirt with a voluptuous silhouette calls upon better and simpler times. These romantic looks are perfect for a dinner date and maybe even a stroll through the local park, weather permitting of course. However, you’ll look like a dream no matter what the occasion.

Whether you have reservations for a candlelit dinner or you’d rather cook a meal at home, the lace top is perfect for you! Dress it down with a pair of jeans and you’ll be ready for a Valentine’s Day in, or add a beautiful skirt for a night in. Whatever your feeling, a lace skirt is a perfect way to show Cupid you’re ready for love.

Tell them exactly how you feel with a graphic sweatshirt on V-Day. It’s a more casual take on the day’s usual attire, but that doesn’t make it any less chic. Regardless of if your sweatshirt is paired with a feminine skirt or boyfriends jeans, you are ready for dinner and a movie. But, if you’re like me, you can take your sweatshirt straight to the couch for a Netflix marathon with your “person,” which we all know is the preferable option.
