Ladies, nothing is going to make that special man happier than putting on a little something special this Valentines Day... So, herewith are some the better ideas that I have found. Let me know what your favorite is. An now some info for you.
I don't exactly believe in "holiday dressing." Leave the Christmas sweaters and Easter bonnets to your crazy aunt. Actually, don't let her wear them either, unless everyone already knows she's crazy! But for Valentine's Day, show the one you love, that regardless of the kind of date your man takes you on or no matter what your gal is up for, there's not just a lotta love in your heart, but a little bit of love in your outfit. Accents of red and pink, even hearts (as cliche as that seems) are here for more than just the holiday. Here's how to look like a million bucks for the one you love:
The casual date OK, "casual" doesn't mean sweatpants and a sports jersey, so even if you go to the game, dress up a little this time. Men can simply not go wrong on a casual date with a layered look. A sports jacket with a sweater and jeans is indispensable to any man. And you'll see great chronograph watches with red dials all over the stores this spring — looks great and makes a great Valentine's gift! Jacket: Express, $148; sweater: Joseph Lyman, $85; shirt: H&M, $9.90; jeans: H&M, $49.90; shoes: Kenneth Cole, $165; belt: Old Navy, $19.50; watch: Relic at JC Penney, $65
Most women are terrified of yellow (and even more terrified of mixing it with another bright color), but it can look so beautiful on olive and dark skin tones! This holiday and spring, try mixing a rich yellow with red accents for a strong style. The Helen Wang dress is very 50s in inspiration (and super-duper flattering to almost all body shapes), but the color combination is a modern mix. Note the strong spring trends: patent flats, a clear bag and a shrunken cardigan. Dress: Helen Wang, $289; cardigan: Express, $79.50; shoes: Stuart Weitzman, $215; earrings: R.J. Graziano, $85; necklace: Yummi Glass, $138; bracelet: R.J. Graziano, $135; clutch: NOIR, $170
