FASHION: Sweet and Spicy Outfits Ideas for Valentine's Day

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner – 12 days and counting to be exact – and this year, the big day lands on a Friday. Whether you’re planning a low key evening with the girls or going on a hot date, these two looks are sure to inspire your heart and style.

From left to right: Collar Pearl Necklace, $278, Kate Spade. Acrylic Ladder Stitch Sweater, $60, Topshop at The Bay. Leather Cut-Out Ankle Boot, $155, Jeffrey Campbell at Urban Outfitters. Nu Prima Clutch, $89, Nella Bella. Cotton and Elastane Printed Trousers, $50, Zara. Jersey Panelled Dress, $138, French Connection. Crystal Necklace, $280, Swarovski. Leather Clutch with Shoulder Strap, $69, Danier. Crystal Hematite Ring, $190, Swarovski. Leather Ankle-Strap Pump, $100, Aldo.

If you prefer something low-key you can opt for our “sweet” look, pairing printed trousers with a great knit and adding a few statement accessories – we instantly fell in love with the pearl collar necklace and metallic clutch. For those who want something sexier, we found the perfect LBD (little black dress) complete with sheer panel detailing for our “spicy” look. Instead of wearing this with bright red accessories, we decided to keep it relatively understated with oxblood accessories and the perfect amount of bling!

After a grey and frigid January, why not heat up February and add some oomph to your outfit. Tell us, what are your plans and what are you wearing come February 14th? Tweet and Instagram us (#Style Empire), we’d love to hear from you! (And if you haven’t entered our Valentine’s themed giveaways yet, you definitely should!)

Sending love, cupid and lots of cinnamon hearts your way!
