From the latest cocktail dresses to anti-Valentine’s Day T-shirts, here’s what you’ll need February 14
Got a dinner date this Valentine’s Day? Wear one of Zara’s new season cocktail dresses
Not everybody likes Valentine’s Day; that’s understandable. I’m not on fire about the holiday of hearts this year. My husband invited two friends from Norway to come stay with us before a back-country ski adventure, so this year I’ve got three guys packed like sardines into our apartment to help me celebrate.
Why am I complaining about triple the usual amount of Norwegian man flesh? Good question. Maybe I shouldn’t. By postponing our date night to the visitor-free week after V-Day, we’ve got a better chance of getting good restaurant reservations. But I digress.
There are two reasons to be aflutter about Valentine’s Day. 1) Chocolate – a mood lifter for both the single and the committed. 2) Fashion – V-Day is an opportunity to get all dressed up in new season style.
From a dinner date dresses to anti-Valentine’s Day t-shirts, here’s what you’ll need come February 14.
Refresh your after-dark look with a head-turning cocktail dress from the just-launched spring collections.
Here are Zara’s new season peekaboo-back black and flirty, plunging-pink cocktail dress.

Bowling? Heading to the cinema? Taking a couple’s cooking class? Bicycle scavenger hunting? Lunching with single friends?
Whatever the semi-casual affair, a statement top (like Anthropologie’s polkadot, cinched-waist, chiffon blouse) paired with fun trousers (like J.Crew’s toothpick twills in bright papaya) will keep you lovely and flexible.
