Look Red Hot This Valentine's Day

It turns out we have too many posts for Valentine's Day and not enough days to post them.  So, in lieu of our usual color day today we will be featuring red hot looks for Valentine's Day.  Red is the color of love and passion, worn by the bold. Whether it's a sexy dress, fierce heels, or lush makeup, wearing red puts you in the spotlight. While we're a bit on the fence about wearing red on Valentine's Day, everyone does it and we secretly may want to do it, so here are some looks to flaunt on February 14th:

Look sweet but sexy in this lovely red dress available at Mod Cloth. We love the classic full skirt, while the asymmetrical neck gives it a more constructive look. Wear it with soft curls or a retro updo, kitten heels, and some delicate jewelry.

 A more casual, but still very sexy look is this short sleeved smock dress from Express. It comes with a cute, cinched belt to help flatter your figure and would look great with black wool tights and booties.

 Not a fan of the bright red dress? Then throw on your trusty LBD and add some hot, red suede peep toes to top off the ensemble. It will jazz up your outfit, add some color, and look very sexy and stylish.

Since Valentine's Day falls on a Monday, you may want to opt for something a bit more appropriate than a sexy red dress and sky high heels for work. Instead, try on this red v-neck sweater from Ann Taylor.  Made from lightweight wool, you'll stay warm and look hot all day long. Add some personality by wearing it with a chunky necklace, as shown above, or keep it sleek and chic with a pencil skirt and black pumps.

Colored tights aren't just for Blair Waldorf. While red tights can look a bit juvenile, you just need to know how to dress them. Steer away from pleated skirts and flats so you don't look too prep school, but do wear mini skirts and heeled Mary Janes. Also, don't layer your reds... if you go for red tights, then stick with a black or grey dress and black shoes.

 Nothing is sexier than bold, red lips on Valentine's Day. Mac offers a great array of colors and textures, although we particularly recommend Viva Glam. There's nothing like saying I love you by leaving your mark on your man's face.

You don't have to be a pin-up bombshell on Valentine's Day to feel romantic. Look perfectly sweet and lovely in this full skirt from Urban Outfitters.Wear it with a loose tank (pictured above) for a more free spirited look, or a fitted cardigan to give it a vintage vibe.

Get cheeky this Valentine's Day in these adorable heart print panties from Victoria's Secret. This is a great way to secretly feel festive if you can't or don't want to wear red at work. Top it off with a matching bra and you'll be the cutest thing this Valentine's Day.
