22 Rule-Breaking Dresses For V-Day

Don’t get us wrong — we love a sexy, red dress. But, so does everyone else on February 14. This year, though, we’re breaking the rules. Just because it’s Valentine’s Day doesn’t mean you need to adhere to a certain color scheme. In fact, you’ll probably stand out more if you ditch red and pink (and those cliché, heart motifs) altogether. Same goes for skintight body-cons and scintillating cutouts. So, we’re serving up 22 frocks that’ll bust you out of that holiday-style rut and have you knocking ’em dead. 

Flirty, ombré drop-waists; dip-dyed, midi-length hems; billowy, neon maxi-dresses — it’s unexpected pieces like these that’ll leave a lasting impression on your oh-so-lucky date. The main takeaway? Don’t let V-Day’s unwritten dress code dictate your outfit. Wear something you love. And, if it does happen to be a sweaterdress with a gigantic heart stamped on it, so be it. If not, we’re sharing some major outfit inspiration that will totally make you swoon — no candy Cupids or chocolates required.
