How to Dress for Any Kind of Valentine's Day Date
I know what you're thinking: What's so hard about dressing for Valentine's Day? Throw on any dress, some non-cheesy jewelry, and bam, you're done. Yes, yes all valid points. But what if your date springs, say, mini golf on you? Or, what if you don't have Valentine's Day plans at all? Or, what if you're unsure how to style that rose-strewn slip dress in the winter? WELL. I've got news for you: There's an outfit for that.

Keep on scrolling for three perfect V-day outfits for whatever you have planned (or don't have planned).
Anything Involving a Meal
Take the fancy route with a rose-strewn slip. But don't forget to shrug on coat, because, well, it's winter (a camel coat will warm you up, both literally and figuratively). Finally, finish your look with a polka-dot purse for interest and sweet sandals (wear them with socks).
