Whether you've got a permanent Valentine by your side or are still trying to figure out if Cupid's arrow hit the bull's eye this time, a February 14 rendezvous marks the perfect occasion to step your style up a notch. We've rounded up three choices for the big day. How do you and your guy plan to celebrate?
1. Quiet dinner at home
The kids are tucked in and your man has fired up the oven (or phoned in for take-out) - lucky you! Take the extra time to doll yourself up with a comfy and flirty frock like this cocoa-colored jersey dress by Suzi Chin for Maggy Boutique. It's simple enough for staying at home, but the goddess-like draping adds a touch of sex appeal. ($139 at Nordstrom)
2. Fancy date out on the town
Skip frilly red and pink dresses that scream "Valentine's Day!" and instead opt for sophisticated feminine style, like this Winter Lace Sheath from Talbots, paired with a bold pair of red pumps (for a touch of festiveness). ($124.50 at Talbots)
3. Low-key night at the movies
If your perfect date constitutes popcorn, jujubes and a rom-com, upgrade from your jeans and T-shirt uniform with a flirty top. This white, lace button-down blouse from Anthropologie has a retro vibe, but looks perfectly modern with slim dark jeans and a comfortable pair of wedge booties. ($98 at Anthropologie)
