 I’ve started dating again after I left a long relationship. I’m not really into Valentine’s Day, but a new guy I’ve been seeing invited me out. It’s still early days, but I really like him and want to wear something that will knock his socks off without being too forward. Help!


 Knock his socks off with confidence by highlighting your favorite part of your body. If curve-loving looks are what you love, slip into vegan leather leggings or skinny jeans and add a peplum top, wedges, and a clutch- this look is great for a casual movie date. For a dinner out that is perfect for chilly weather, highlight your legs by pairing your favorite dress with heels and a moto jacket. Add your favorite jewelry to any look to up your confidence level and feel beautiful with your new beau.

Pro Tip: Add your favorite jewelry to any look to up your confidence level and feel beautiful.

My girlfriend and I are celebrating our 5-year anniversary and are taking a road trip to a romantic cabin in the woods. I want something new to wear that’s comfortable and cute. Have any suggestions?



Road trips are perfect for fun conversations and making memories! For the drive, slip into a pair of Lola Getts leggings and any of the classic tees from Madewell. If your trip involves cool weather or changing climates, throw a versatile and cute packable jacket or vest from Marc NY in your luggage. Chilly nights or relaxing mornings in the cabin can still be cute by slipping into the Cosabella Racerback Cami Set and matching robe. If hiking is on your agenda, wear our best-selling Leroy skinny jeans with a plaid hoodie and hiking boots. Or stay in with style and comfort by wearing knit joggers and a coordinating funnel neck top.
