As one of the official colors for Valentine’s Day, red is an obvious color choice for the perfect Valentine outfit. Whether you are spending it alone (read my Single Girl’s Guide to Valentine’s for ways to celebrate!) or spending it with a significant other, these two black and red Valentine’s day outfits are perfect for the holiday and beyond.
The proof of a great Valentine’s day outfit is in the details. My first outfit combines two of my favorite details: bows and scallops.
This black J. Crew asymmetrical bow top was on sale for $30! Just look at the size of this bow! The top pairs perfectly with this belvedere red scalloped sidewalk skirt from J. Crew Factory. I have quite the selection of sidewalk skirts but I can’t resist when they come out with new features.
What’s more romantic than a little lace? When I tried this shirt on at Marshall’s, it was even more gorgeous than I imagined. The sleeve detail is fun without getting in the way, which will make it great to wear in the office as well. I enjoy that the shirt is structured and has a roomy feel without looking oversized.
My favorite part about this outfit is the contrast of color and texture. While the shirt is a bright red lace, the leggings are a dark black vegan leather. Not only are the they made from a vegan leather, they are actually half ponte. While the leggings are dressed up here, they can easily be dressed down with a t-shirt or sweater and sneakers. Tuckernuck currently has a couple sizes of these leggings available and on sale!
If you are still deciding on an outfit for Valentine’s day, head to a J. Crew Factory or Marshall’s ASAP for these affordable styles! Or take advantage of the great sale prices and order them anyway!
