Ace Your Valentine's Day Outfits With These Runway Inspirations

Whether you're planning a casual day out or are headed for an extravagant dinner date, these Spring/Summer 2017 runway looks will inspire you to take dressing for Valentine's Day up a notch.

#1: Do grown-up girly

Who says floral print dresses have to be humdrum? The rendition here by British designer Jasper Conran puts a new spin on floral embellishments with its nude-coloured midi. The waist ties on the other  two looks lend a feminine touch too. What we adore most: Their conservative mid-length cuts, which instantly injects a more ladylike appeal.

 

#2: Do sexy the modern way

David Koma’s cut-out jumpsuit is party-worthy, and the plunging neckline on the Michael Kors dress gives it a more sophisticated (and not frumpy) air. Altuzarra’s ruffled bralette, meanwhile, takes midriff-baring looks to a whole new level.

 

#3: Do boyish chic

Alexander Wang’s denim-on-denim look is great if you want to go down the androgynous route. Burberry keeps it simple with an oversized poet shirt, whereas Mulberry’s striped pyjamas-esque ensemble will put you in the mood for an intimate tete-a-tete.

 

#4: Do minimal

Ditch the bodycon dresses and go for clean-cut staples, like the billowy shirt dress, trench coat and slip seen above. The best part: They’ll last you beyond Valentine’s Day.

 

#5: Do retro

Take on the ’70s trend with bright printed frocks, peter pan collared dresses and others with sweetheart necklines. You’ll look dressed up and ready to party all at once.
