Styling Tip: Wear Pinks and Reds For Valentine's Day

One-Minute Makeover Tip: Add Shades of Valentine's Day Into the Mix

Get the look of love just by reinventing your personal wardrobe wheel. Sure, you can splurge on lacy lingerie or a skintight cocktail dress, but for an everyday spruce-up, utilizing what you already have in the back of your closet will certainly make do. We've tapped our stylish community and chic editors to breathe new life into well-loved pieces — and this time around, we're making a serious case for shades of pink and red. With Valentine's Day just around the corner, we're in a sweet state-of-mind: just up your pink (and red) lady quotient.

  • Don't go the cheesy route with your pretty pinks — make them pop in subtle ways. Try a pastel-hued peplum skirt, dusty salmon pink skinny jean, or a soft pleated maxi skirt.
  • 'Tis the season to accentuate your shape. Opt for form-flattering cuts in even sexier hues of crimson red. Whether it be a zippered pencil skirt or a fiery sheer blouse, it's easy to create a sexy mood just with the right attention to detail and color.
  • If you're not a total girlie girl, that's OK. Go ultra-feminine with sweet accessories: fuchsia platform heels, rich magenta earrings, a pale pink clutch, or a bold red fedora. Never underestimate the aphrodisiac effect of a well-executed element of style.
