Roses are red, violets are blue, we're wearing grey on V-Day and you should, too! Ditch the safe red and pink options for your date this Valentine's Day and opt for something a little edgier. Surprise your love or your friends by stepping out in these chic grey pieces. We'd venture to guess that Christian Grey himself would approve.
1. An up-to-there slit
So your guy is a bit ambiguous about your V-Day plans, but you want to make sure you're dressy enough. Try the Classy and Sassy Maxi Dress ($72, Tobi) with this to-die-for open back and sexy slit. The steely grey is beyond edgy and sophisticated.
2. A little bit wild
What's sexier than snakeskin? This chic Animal Print Pencil Skirt ($19.94, Joe Fresh) combines a classic silhouette with a crazy pattern, making this piece a win-win. Wear it with a strappy top for your date and then repurpose it later for your internship with a more modest button-down.
3. Laid-back embellishments
If your plans include Chinese food and Netflix for the holiday of love (ME!!), slip into this Boxy Beaded Sweatshirt ($24.90, Forever 21) to stay comfy but put together. The jewel accents dress up the relaxed sweatshirt without compromising the kind of comfort required for movie-watching.
4. Classy, classic and perfect for date night
If you're in the small percentage of the population whose boyfriend actually made plans for Valentine's Day then reward him by slipping into this little number. Modest enough to woo the parents but sexy enough to get in the mood, the Nadia Dress in Silk Chiffon ($200, J.Crew) is a timeless piece that will last in your closet for years.
5. Cute and casual
This simple Max & Mia Front Zip Collarless Jacket ($46.80, Nordstrom) in heather grey tweed is the perfect accessory for any outfit this Valentine's Day. The classic tweed will perfectly compliment whatever color you choose for your plans.
