When it comes to dressing for Valentine’s Day, you know there just has to be bows, ruffles, hearts, and a vibrant shade of red worn somewhere for anyone to be noticed by their beau, crush or frog (for some). To ensure you get double-glanced for a red hot Valentine’s Day or any night of the year, I’ve compiled, what I like to call, The Ultimate Chic Girls Dress Guide for Valentines Day. Here you’ll find sexy chic dresses, eye-catching accessories, flirty shoes, and heart accessories, plus more for any stylish V-day plans with top picks from Free People and Anthropologie, plus a camel kissing art print from Urban Outfitters, flirty feather pompom heels from Nordstrom, and temporary heart and love tattoos from Etsy. I also included three great skirt choices from Anthropologie that takes you from day to night for any occasion. First off, the Serefina Off The Shoulder Dress at the top of this post is a fantastic flirty option, where bearing shoulders comes into play. And pairing it with a must have heart shaped bag, in the Lovestruck Velvet Crossbody (also loved the Have My Heart Crossbody) and Reach For The Stars Ankle Boot, makes for a romantic effortless look.
Before we begin shopping in the name of love, the Ugh Neon Sign Table Lamp is a reminder for any gal that has ever angstly waited for that one call to come in from the object of their affection.
♥ Free People ♥
For a short fun mini choice, the Embroidered Austin Dress in the cherry combo colorway has just the right amount of beautiful floral embroidery, a deep “V” in back and flowy style in a swing dress.
When it comes to The Ultimate Chic Girls Dress Guide for Valentines Day, Free People has sexy dressing down to a science. With a combination of rich shades of red, feminine lace, chic embroidery, bare-back dresses or flirty sweatshirts, Valentine’s day dressing has never looked so good. Why not add a temporary Love Heart or Gold and Black Metallic Hearts tattoo to add a bit of fun to your V-day dress-up, courtesy of Etsy. Speaking of hearts, eye-catching heart accessories are a must for Valentine’s Day dressing or really any night, such as the Lovestruck Velvet Crossbody, the Lucky Complete Heart Ring and the “WANT NOW” True Love iPhone Case – not shown but equally had my heart in my eyes, was the Have My Heart Crossbody and the Love Letter Tight. When it came to shoes, the Haide Feather Pompom Pump is flirty at its best and would definitely get your legs noticed, dressing up any outfit. Items from Top, Left to Right:

TWO LAST ADDITIONS: had to add these last two options below that I found when writing this post – because my obsessions have no bounds.
A really easy chic “perfect shade of red” top to wear with anything has to be the appropriately titled, Love Is Top. Lightweight and has flirty ruffles to boot – a great top or overlay option for any night of the week.
The Fight For Love Tee says it all and reminds your boyfriend or amour to pay attention – that you’re “It”. A great message in a super sweet lightweight graphic tee.
♥ Anthropologie ♥
Anthropologie has been putting out some fantastic romantic dress options just in time for the Big V-Day. At the top of that list has got to be the appropriately titled, Valentine Wrap Dress. Anthropologie best describes it as, “Enchanting embroidery and feminine ruffles meet to create a truly romantic dress that’s an ideal choice for an evening out with your valentine.” I totally agree. Loving the wrapped maxi silhouette, contrast pattern mixing, and of course, the sweet ruffles and embroidery. A great dress for an enchanting night. Other beautiful options are the Salinas Ruffled Dress, the Sadie Bow Dress, and the ultra gorgeous Anna Sui Scalloped Lace Dress. For a different look other than a dress, the Velvet Party Jumpsuit is elegantly chic, while the Fringed Lace Poncho has great details and an easy throw on and go style about it.
In my, The Ultimate Chic Girls Dress Guide for Valentines Day list, for a really easy choice to elevate any look when you can’t find anything else to wear, is a silk kimono. With its chic vintage print and watercolor design influence, the Winnie Silk Kimono is one that I would have on hand for any occassion. Other great options are the (I want now) Scarlett Polka Dot Kimono, the Hibiscus Kimono, Field of Flowers Kimono, and the boho chic, Pastel Floral Long Kimono.
I thought since Valentine’s Day falls on a week day this year, most gals are going from work to dinner and may need some transitional day to night dressing choices. I found three great skirt choices from Anthropologie that can easily be styled with day to night looks in mind. Nothing is more effortless than a pencil skirt and now that the modern day pencil skirt is incorporating metallic yarn, lace, embroidery and feminine prints, it’s an all around chic winner. Out of Anthropologie’s skirt options, I found that the Deutzia Lace Pencil Skirt, the romantic Sasha Tulle Skirt, and the Clarissa Jacquard Pencil Skirt had everything a transitional skirt could have and more – classic lengths, eye-catching prints & texture, and neutral tones. I offered the day look options under each skirt.

LAST ADDITION: While finishing up this post I just had to include this top from Anthropologie’s February pre-shop sneak peak. Rails Heart-Printed Blouse is as perfect as it gets with it’s subtle feminine sweet heart print and the tie waist goes great with any of your favorite high-waisted denim or vibrantly printed pant, like the Virginie Wide-Legs pictured.
That wraps up The Ultimate Chic Girls Dress Guide for Valentines Day – I hope you have a fantastic Valentine’s Day dressed with lots of ruffles, bows, lace and kissing camels. The last one’s optional, of course. So in love with the Sandy Broenimann Love and Affection Art Print above – comes in fifteen fantastic frame choices and optional sizes to choose from. It would surprise your sweetie in so many ways – a great gift option. Well, that’s Amore!
