6 Valentine's Day Looks for Whichever Mood You're Feeling

Written by Jordan Johnson

It’s funny how every Valentine’s Day can look and feel a little different.  Maybe you’re single one year, in a relationship the next, then doing a (genuinely fun) galentines’ this year.  Although yes, we are all about celebrating love and expressing ourselves, there’s also something to be said about enjoying the moment of now – whatever that chapter looks like for you.

For some, maybe it’s romantic.  For others, maybe it’s spent with friends.  Whichever way it is, though, spend the day appreciating the current life stage you’re in.. without changing your outlook on it.  Because whether you’re a mom of three – or were strong enough to recently leave a relationship you knew was wrong for you – you deserve the accolades.  And a moment for you.

So for the mood you’re feeling this year, we’ve curated a few special things to help you emulate your Valentine’s vibe. Fancy drinks out, or wine at home.  Either way, good for you.  You deserve it.


Want to show off some style?  This Cult Gaia Bustier Top adds a simple, yet elegant, flare with voluminous sleeves that fall off the shoulder, so you can flaunt a little collarbone.  This structured top is best paired with black trousers, or black denim for a more casual look.  Accessorize with Jennifer Fisher Heart Earrings and the Bottega Veneta Mini Heart Leather Bag, then accentuate the lips with Merit Beauty’s Signature Lip.

Feeling in love this season?   Speak the color of adoration with a striking red midi dress by Magda Butrym.  With rose details and a fit that hugs your figure (in all the right places), evoke true femininity in this stunning piece.   Swipe shimmer on your cheekbones and cupid’s bow using our Highlighter Stick, then slip into an elegant red heel before heading out the door.  Time for a magical evening –  Bisous, mi amour.

Three words – little black dress.  Just pair with Wolford tights for an elegant, yet sexy look, and slip into a thin black heel.  Chilly in your area?  Just add a chic, long coat for en route purposes.  Spritz an intoxicating scent, like Missing Person by Phlur, to make them swoon all night long– and we’re not kidding about this one.

Ordering sushi and drinking wine tonight?  Yeah, us too.  Slip into an ultra-luxe, Eterne pajama set, and Jenni Kayne slippers.  Light a soothing candle, like LES by Boy Smells and soak in the moment of peace by throwing on a face mask and rolling with the YSE Beauty Golden Sculpt Roller.  Solo time is fleeting, too – you should relish in it.

Board meeting before the big date?  Molly’s most likely on the same schedule – and here’s what she’s probably wearing.  Slightly flared black slacks by Nili Lotan and a tucked-in white button down with a black, gold skinny belt.  Accessorize with Shylee Rose gold necklaces and earrings to really elevate the look, then speak confidence with the final touch of a stiletto heel.

Bubble bath, glass of wine and dark chocolate (or pizza) – I mean, say less.   Put your phone away and reach for Your Favorite Ex ™ … Exfoliating Pads to start with a clean slate.  Light Tom Ford’s Fucking Fabulous Candle, because that’s just fitting here, and enjoy a good book with the bubbles.  Do your retinol before your rest, and pull down Slip's contour sleep mask before a night of sweet dreams.
