Style guide: Valentine’s Day

Love is in the air! With Valentine’s Day quickly approaching, perhaps you’re having trouble deciding what to wear to impress your significant other. Maybe you’re single and want an excuse to dress up with your friends. You could even be bored, and relaxing at home! Whether you’re going out or staying in, here are some Valentine’s Day looks you’ll fall in love with no matter what you’re doing.

Nudes on fleek.

Valentine’s Day does not mean you have to wear bright red and cover your body in hearts. Neutral colors flatter every skintone and can be found anywhere. Forever 21 and Urban Outfitters are great spots to check out! Fair skin tones look beautiful in peaches, cool greys and blush pinks. Medium skin tones look stunning in warm browns, olive greens and taupes. Deep skin tones look gorgeous in cream, coffees and warm mahoganys.

Carefree and casual.

There is no rule that says you have to dress up on Valentine’s Day. If you want to stay in your pajamas all day and lounge around, you can! For the girls who want to look cute but don’t want to have to take their shoes off at the end of the night, your best bet are boyfriend jeans and a loose T-shirt. You can dress it up with heeled booties, or dress it down with sneakers! This effortlessly chic look is easy and still guaranteed to turn heads!

Single ladies.

Cupid didn’t shoot his arrow your way this year? That’s fine! There’s no reason you still shouldn’t slay! Little boutiques around Philadelphia such as Francesca’s showcase a wide variety of flirty to sexy dresses perfect for the occasion! Velvet or sequined bodycon dresses are perfect to show off the body you’ve been working on, and the boys will wish they put a ring on it!

Dark chocolate and red wine.

Brown and gold on the eyes and blue-toned reds on the lips always provide a sultry look that looks good on everyone. The Too Faced chocolate bar palette has a wide array of colors of easily blendable eyeshadows that are able to create subtle and flirty daytime looks that can easily transition to sexy and heartbreaking looks for nighttime. Deep burgundy lips exhibit a mysterious vampy effect, plus they make your teeth look whiter! NYX Cosmetics’ soft matte lip creams offer a lot of selection in this color family, including the colors Transylvania and Copenhagen.
