Cut out LBD's
You can never go wrong with a little black dress (LBD) it’s a classic staple that firmly belongs in your capsule wardrobe. While some might argue a black dress is a boring choice, things are amped up with the addition (or rather, subtraction?) of dramatic cut-outs.
Take this dress, for example, the perfect dupe for Maddy’s Euphoria party dress from episode two. Cut-outs are a big trend right now, so you can’t go wrong with a cut-out LBD.
You can either dress up this little number or dress it down—throw on a blazer and some boots and you're good to go.
Animal print also appears to be big this year—it's never not in, in our books TBH—we’ve spotted the likes of Winnie Harlow and Kendall Jenner wearing animal-themed dresses.
If you have no idea what to wear, animal print is always a good way to go. It becomes the statement and then all you need to do is accessorize around it, with black heels for example, or a black blazer. If you want a more glam look, add silver or gold jewelry.
This Reformation dress is a similar shape to Kendall's, with its V-shaped cut and leg slit. You can dress this up for an elegant dinner date—or a day date and best of all you can repurpose it as a cute summer dress.
It might just be us, but we seem to be seeing long gloves everywhere—and they’re so sexy.
They add a hint of elegance to everything you do and can be very sensual to remove. If you’re a fan of Bridgerton, adding some long gloves will give you regency vibes, what’s not to love about that? A pair of gloves will instantly spice up and elevate an outfit.
These might seem a little out there but get on board because gloves are IN.
If you want to add a vintage, expensive feel to your look, wear your rings and bracelets on the outside of your gloves. Very Marilyn Monroe, darling!
All our favorite celebs are repping corsets right now from Olivia Rodrigo to Billie Eilish. You can either opt for trousers, jeans or a satin midi skirt.
You can easily dress them up or down and they instantly give you a seriously edgy look.
90s slip dresses and satin skirts are really having a moment and we're so here for them. They're simple, elegant and like all good wardrobe staples, they're versatile.
Like Olivia Rodrigo, you also could pair a slip skirt with a corset for your Valentine's look or go for a classic, midi dress.
Blazers are everywhere are for good reason. Whether you pair them with some matching suit pants or wear them over a mini dress— a blazer is always a staple for a date look.
We recommend opting for black or dark grey, as they will complement a myriad of outfits.
Leather blazers and trousers were a big trend for winter 2021, and it looks like they're going nowhere soon. We've spotted Hailey Bieber rocking a brown leather dress which would definitely get hearts racing this Valentines day...
Leather trousers seem to be a big trend amongst the a-listers. We've spotted everyone from RiRi to Hailey Bieber rocking them. Pair them with a corset or bodysuit and you're good to go!
Whatever your Valentine's plan, if you're wearing any of these outfits you're winning in life, if not also in love.
