Valentine’s Day is just another excuse to dress up. Sure it’s about love too, but its in the middle of February and when it’s as cold as it has been I am excited to find any reason to dress cute. I put together these three simple outfits using pieces already in my closet. There is no reason to spend a lot on your outfit especially considering how much will be spent on dinner, movie tickets, etc. A little creativity can go a long way.
1. Red Tights – This one is so simple. Red tights automatically make any outfit that much more interesting. I love this BB Dakota dress that I got at a consignment shop for $15. It’s form fitting and perfect for a fancy dinner date.

2. Mix and Match Pinks and Reds – There are a lot of ways to combine various shades of pinks and reds. I went with this hot pink top and a maroon skirt for an interesting and bright contrast. I like this outfit for a work party or meeting up with girlfriends for drinks.

3. Use Unconventional Red Patterns – Everyone automatically goes for the heart shape and polka dot patterns when it comes to Valentine’s Day, but I think a buffalo plaid scarf paired with simple black and white really pops! This outfit is perfect for ice skating in the park or a cozy night in.
