A cozy date night, sweet-nothings, and a shower of presents are by far the greatest highlights of the month of February for all lovebirds alike, and with that comes the ever-prevalent question: “What should I wear?”
But don’t let that perplex you, because our shopping guide – a Valentine’s Day special – is here to help you get outfitted (and to impress) in no time.
If your definition of a fairytale date involves a picnic in the park or a blissful brunch with your significant other (S.O.), then this look is perfect for you.
With flowers being the fashion mainstay on this romantic occasion, it makes absolute sense to look toward nature-inspired styles, such as this printed number with a sexy plunge neckline, as well as sculptural floral accessories that will definitely add an oomph factor to your elegant repertoire.

If you belong to the latter, there is a high chance that you are not a fan of romantic ruffles and delicate tulle, and will no doubt have a love affair with this tough-luxe, midriff-baring ensemble. Crank up the style-o-meter and balance that rock-star edge by donning on a white pair of moccasin that allows you to wear your heart on your feet.
