Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching, when it arrives restaurants will be filled to capacity, your coworker’s desk (or your own) will be overflowing with flowers, chocolates and cheesy yet adorable stuffed bears and men will flood their local department stores in search of perfume gift sets and lingerie( or if you’re lucky shoes). When your significant other takes you out and he will and you guys are waiting an hour for a table, the most important thing to remember is that you have to outshine every other woman there. I’m all for solidarity amongst women (go girl power) but on a day such as this, when your guy has pulled out all the stops to make you feel special, so should you.
Almost all the girls that come out on V day will be wearing red and while I’m not a huge fan of the color it happens to look good on most skin tones. Rather than stepping out in head to toe red, try a more modern approach. The hue looks amazing when paired with neutrals dark trousers or denim and white, depending on the season. Add a pop of color by using red as the accent color in accessories like shoes. Go with the less obvious and opt for something sequined or metallic – my go to ingredient for getting dress in the evening, just remember to balance the ensemble with subdued heels. To avoid looking garish, if you must wear red, stay away from pieces that are super tight and have loud prints. See my options below and if it matters they are male tested and Haute approved. xoxo WOYH
