Red is considered the color of love and passion, so red is definitely an obvious choice if you are choosing how to dress for Valentines Day, and theres a shade of red that will suit all skin tones, whether you opt for a shade which has more orange or more blue in its mix.

For a more romantic feel, you could add a touch of pink to your outfit. Or, just wear any color which makes you feel great!

Fabric choices

I always think Valentines Day is the perfect time to wear tactile fabrics such as silk or satin, or to choose chiffon with a camisole worn underneath.

9 Valentines Day outfits for you

If you still have to decide on what to wear for Valentines day this year, here are 9 suggestions for you. Let me know which outfit you would be most likely to wear.

Red dress

I think that a dress should be your number one option to look at. Certainly when you dont normally wear dresses. That makes it extra special!

Op for something sexy that shows off thepartsthat you wish to highlight about your body. Dont be afraid to show off some of your curves and be proud of them! Men love a woman whois confident about her body.

That doesnt mean you have to go ultra-short or ultra-tight. Simply choose a dress which shoes off the part of you that you like best, whether that is your shoulders, decolletage or your legs.

Monika (above) opts for a below-the-knee pencil style.

Check out these red dress options from Badgley Mischka, Floerns and Milumia and pair the dress of your choice with these similar pumps and a similar Gucci bag.

Red pants with neutrals

If you would like to wear red in a more casual way, you might like to opt for a pair of red jeans.

White is always a beautiful option with red.

Satin dress

For an outfit which looks luxurious and has subtle sex appeal, you could choose satin.

Satin skirt

Also very romantic is to wear a skirt. I like the idea of wearing a flowery skirt or you could wear your satin as a skirt rather than a dress, but then roughen it up with a leather jacket or make it more casual with a sweater.

Purple pants and red shoes

If you prefer to wear pants, how about wearing colorful pants in whatever your favorite shade is, whether you love purple, red, or pink for example.

You can keep the rest of your look neutral. A snakeprint or leopard print also works as a neutral and can be worn with any color at all.

Another romantic outfit with subtle sex appeal is an off-the-shoulder top. You can wear with jeans or wide-leg pants.

If you do choose an off-the-shoulder style, you may need a strapless bra.
