Valentine's Week on YCS: Flashback Friday

By Erika, Resident Fashionista

Today is the big day, and, if you still need some outfit inspiration, I’m thinking maybe a throwback will help you out! Below, I’m sharing our “What to Wear on Valentine’s Day” post from 2013 for a list minute dose of inspiration!

Also, be sure to follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram where I’ll be posting LAST MINUTE gift ideas for you all to snag for your Valentine’s! If your weather has been anything like mine here in Philly, you might need the last minute help.

And, of course, from the YCS Team, let me say . . .

Happy Valentine’s Day!!


February 14th is fast approaching and whether you’re single or taken people are always checking for what you’re wearing (even as an adult, I find myself taking inventory of who is rocking red).  It doesn’t matter if you’re having date night with your sweetie, drinks with your girls, treats with your kids, or movie night with yourself – you still need to look fabulous.  Below are some looks cultivated from my favorite websites that will meet all of your Valentine’s Day needs.

Date Night

For date night with your boo, I would suggest going super romantic or super sexy.  Either way, you couldn’t go wrong with one of these dresses below.

Celebrating V-Day with the girls?  Keep things light and airy and super flirty.  It’s likely you’ll find a cutie to pay for your drinks with these pieces.

Movie Night at Home

Sometimes, the best way to spend V-Day is at home, bundled on the couch with popcorn, ice cream (but not too much!), and vino.  These clothes will be a comfy addition to the perfect night in!
