R, W, & G: Valentine's Day Edition
Hey Cardinals, and welcome back to your favorite source for all things fashionable at Greenwich High School! It seems like love is in the air this Valentine’s Day season, so I couldn’t resist compiling some of my favorite V-day-inspired outfits. These red and pink outfits are perfect for glamorous festivities. Don’t worry, I’ve included a gorgeous, silky pink pajama set that’s perfect for those who’ll be spending this February 14th solo, curled up on the couch with a fluffy blanket and catching up on Euphoria with a Russell Stover box in hand. No matter how you plan to celebrate the upcoming holiday, you can look stylish for any occasion with the styling suggestions I’ve included in this outfit guide!
Gucci “Les Pommes” Heart Sweater
This sweater is an upscale twist on your favorite closet basic, perfect for any Valentine’s Day festivity where you’d like to show up in style. Gucci’s jacquard, heart-printed cardigan couldn’t be more fitting for February 14th, and it’s an absolutely necessary purchase for those who want a unique statement piece. While it is on the pricier end for a sweater, the v-neck cardigan, complete with “GG” navy initials knitted throughout, is a unique and whimsical piece. When wearing the cardi at Valentine’s Day festivities, you can feel confident that your hand-crafted Italian cotton sweater is the most “on theme” outfit in the room
House of Harlow 1960 “Lotta” Multicolor Dress
Be honest, have you ever seen a dress more perfect for Valentine’s Day? When I first saw this House of Harlow 1960 dress from the collaboration with Revolve, I just knew it had to be included for my Valentine’s Day style guide. The colorful dress features pink and red color blocking, a gathered waist tie detailing, and buttoned cuffs. While this dress is the definition of the perfect Valentine’s Day look, I can also envision the outfit being worn to a summer event. It’s truly the most gorgeous dress and is sure to be a wardrobe favorite for years to come.
LoveShackFancy “Armstrong” Pink Coat
I’ve genuinely been dreaming about this LoveShackFancy pink houndstooth masterpiece for months. Since it was recently discounted by over 40% for an end-of-winter sale, I’m contemplating snatching one for myself. LoveShackFancy’s preppy, Victorian-inspired designs are always perfection, and the “Armstrong” coat is no exception. If a long, houndstooth coat with pearl buttons isn’t to your taste (no judgment!), the brand also designed a cropped version of this piece with the same features–the “Mews” jacket– and the look couldn’t be complete without the matching “Gibson” skirt to boot.
Chicwish “Heart and Soul” Navy Sweater
Fun fact: this navy sweater, complete with red heart patches on the sleeves, was the inspiration for my Valentine’s Day style guide. The concept is unique and perfect for any fashion lover: it’s business in the front and party in the back! When wearing this sweater, you can finally achieve the dream of wearing your heart on your sleeve (literally). I love this turtleneck sweater, complete with ribbed cuffs, for a more toned-down Valentine’s Day outfit–but it’s still a very unique and fashion-forward wardrobe piece. The brand sells this sweater in a slew of various other colors. However, the navy version is my personal favorite since it pairs incredibly well with the Frame Denim “Le Sylvie” red jeans that I’ll be showcasing next.
FRAME “Le Sylvie” Red Jeans
These red jeans by FRAME (one of my favorite denim brands) could not be more dazzling for February. When paired with the Chicwish navy sweater shown above, the sweater’s red sleeve accents nicely complement the accompanying coated, red denim. What’s more, these jeans are high-waisted and have a straight-leg, right on-trend, and perfect for any aspiring fashionista. The brand, FRAME, strives to design modern, versatile wardrobe staples. These jeans definitely fulfill that goal–while the color is perfect for a Valentine’s Day outfit, this pair of denim can easily be worn during any month of the year.
LoveShackFancy “Altie” Pink Dress
Ever since I saw someone wearing this dress on TikTok, I’ve been eyeing it on the LSF website… I don’t gatekeep here, so I’m sharing with you one of my all-time favorite picks for V-day this year–this fabulous dress. LoveShackFancy truly outdoes itself after each collection release. I secretly wish the founder and creative director, Rebecca Hessel-Cohen, would stop creating these stunning new collections so I could give my wallet a break! This asymmetrical, one-shoulder beauty, complete with a fun polka-dot print scattered throughout and a matching sash, is every girl’s dream Valentine’s Day attire. Additionally, the dress doubles as a fun summer and birthday dress. Personally, I would love to wear this LoveShackFancy “Altie” dress, in the color “Hot Pink Cherry,” to my upcoming birthday festivities in May… hint, hint.
Endless Rose Pink Skirt
If silk mini dresses aren’t your thing, and you’d prefer not to wear denim (even jeans as fabulous as the FRAME red ones), the next best option is this stunning, preppy-inspired mini skirt from the brand Endless Rose. This mini, available to purchase at Nordstrom, is every Blair Waldorf lover’s dream. While it’s pink and a unique textured fabric, the main selling point for this skirt is the gorgeous chain detailing across the waistband. PLUS, it’s budget-friendly, costing $70 on the Nordstrom website. After all, February is the month of love, and what’s not to love about this skirt?
Bluebella “Abigail” Pink Pajama Set
In case you’ve been shopping online and hoping to find some much-needed Valentine’s Day pajama inspiration, look no further… this Bluebella silk pajama set is straight out of Elle Woods’s wardrobe. The pink, silky charmeuse sleepwear includes contrast piping, black detailing, and a notched collar. The elastic waistband makes for comfy attire while spending your February 14th with a pint of Haagen Dazs for a date, yet the dainty ribbon on the shorts adds a touch of femininity. The “Abigail” pajama set can be found at ShopBop and will guarantee sweet dreams to all who wear it this Valentine’s Day.
For those who were on the hunt for the perfect Valentine’s Day outfit, look no further… Red, White, & Glam has you covered with fabulous outfit suggestions for all occasions, no matter your plans for the evening. Remember… all of these outfits cannot be completed without the flower bouquet of choice in hand. And, of course, a beau is necessary–even if it can only be found on your headband.
