Forget heart-shaped pendants and sickly shades of pink. Just in time for Valentine’s Day, we’ve rounded up some cute but fashion-conscious items perfect for showing off on Valentine's Day or any other romantic night.
Ruffles don't have to be pink. We fell in love with this Brigitte double-knit ruffle dress ($150) from Banana Republic in a flattering shade of plum. The subtle ruffles frame the V-neck and dress up an otherwise casual dress. Pair with black pumps or add some edge with ankle boots and a denim jacket.
Pair this pretty Rebecca Taylor Wave At Me Cami ($195) with skinny jeans and over-the-knee boots. The wispy floral pattern and soft ruffles in front make this sexy top both romantic and stylish, and a good option for anyone who wants to wear something feminine without going too flirty.
Cute in coral
Coral is a great alternative to red or pink and provides a fresh, spring-like vibe. We love this casual camp shirt from Old Navy ($24.50) for its cool, outdoorsy look. Pair with boyfriend jeans and ballet flats for a look that's pretty but proves you're ready for anything.
A splash of pink
If you're going to incorporate pink into your outfit, do it in small doses. Our go-to pink pick when it comes to accessories are these comfy Gap city flats in pretty guava pink ($29.50). Pair with skinny jeans and a slouchy grey sweater for a casual yet romantic look.
