Valentine’s Day is almost here, and that means it is time to find the perfect outfit. While there are always occasions calling for a classic look, some celebrations call for an outfit a little more casual. Here are a few of our favorite looks to rock this holiday, no matter if you are strolling through a vineyard or trying out a chic new restaurant.

Classic: As the name suggests, you cannot go wrong with this romantic look. Break out a chic red number like this Joseph Ribkoff dress for those special plans that might include an intimate candlelit dinner or an evening at the theater.

Fun & Flirty: This look is great for transitioning from daytime to evening plans and is appropriate for an array of Valentine’s Day activities, no matter whether you are enjoying a wine tasting or heading to a new restaurant. Below, these Joseph Ribkoff dresses are both figure-flattering and fun with their bold prints.

Casual & Feminine: Even when your plans call for something a little more casual, you can always keep it feminine and trendy. This look is perfect for a daytime activity like a vineyard tour, catching a matinee or visiting a favorite art gallery. The Joseph Ribkoff jumpsuit and chic jacket are perfect for an afternoon on the town.
