Valentine's day is just around the corner so I thought I would share a subtly-sexy outfit that is sure to impress your SO. Valentine's day can get really cheesy with all the hearts and lace. Don't get me wrong, I love cheese, just not when it comes to my outfit choices. So to keep things classy I've picked out an elegant look that is versatile enough to go from day to night.
The star of this look is a gorgeous knit midi dress and hugs me in just the right places. I like that it's not too long on my petit frame so it never overwhelms me. The light grey shade is universally flattering and all you need to get this dress ready for date night is a bit of jewelry and the right shoes.
On my neck I'm wearing a minimalist statement necklace (how's that for an oxymoron?). The giant pearl really draws the eye's attention but the overall design is simple, just like the dress. I love to wear this necklace on an everyday basis as well because it adds elegance without looking matronly as a strand of pearls might. For shoes, I've picked out a classic black pump with a twist: zipper detailing. I love how this shoe is so simple but it makes the outfit edgy. You could also choose to do a pop of color on the feet with this look to brighten things up. I think a red heel would look fantastic here!
To finish it all off, I've added a simple long black coat that will hopefully protect against the bitter cold. The long lines of the coat help to elongate the body when paired with a black shoe. I also love how this coat fits me and the soft A-line silhouette.
As for my makeup, I've simply gone with my everyday look with a bit of a soft smokey brown eye. I wanted to keep this look neutral so I've chosen a soft pink lipstick; specifically I'm wearing MAC's Plumful.
