Valentine's Day: You like it, or you don't. Here at CF, we always like to take a positive approach to the holiday. Valentine's isn't just about having a significant other, it's a time to celebrate all of the love in your life - friends, family, and pets included!
However, another big reason why we love Valentine's Day is that it gives us another excuse to dress up. And contrary to popular belief, you don't have to wear a frilly, baby pink dress to look festive on V-Day. (Though, if you want to, more power to you!) To help get you started, we have created four looks for different Valentine's Day events, each under $100 total.
Brunch with Friends - $97.91
If you and your girlfriends are headed out for a long, lazy brunch on V-Day, choose a dainty, feminine dress with colorful touches. Glam up the look beyond your normal brunch-wear with pretty earrings and pointy-toe flats.
Cooking at Home - $99.60
Just because you and your significant other have decided to stay home and cook does not mean you should wear your normal around-the-house sweats. A cute metallic skirt, sexy T-strap pumps, and a bold necklace will dress up a colorful long-sleeve tee (that won't be ruined by a marinara sauce spill!).
Traditional Formal Dinner - $99.38
If you're taking the traditional route of candlelit dinner with that special someone, opt for a nice dress. This one looks very expensive without the spendy pricetag. Dainty jewelry, statement shoes, and a clutch are all key accessories.
Valentine's Party - $70.00 ($94.00 with lipstick)
Whether you and your girlfriends are planning a girl's party or you're headed out to a singles event, a flirty lace dress with a high-low hemline is a perfect choice. And what better time than V-Day to wear your most obnoxious (read: darling) bow belt and pumps?
