• Winter 2014 Style Inspiration: What to Wear For Speed Dating on Valentine’s Day (College Edition)

    Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day! For you single fashionistas looking to mix things up this Valentine’s Day, tap into today’s style inspiration.

    Danielle writes, “Hello, I am an avid reader of the fashionbomb, and I absolutely love how you guys style outfits. On Valentine’s Day I am attending a speed dating function on my college campus and I wanted to know if you guys could maybe offer me some style suggestions on what I should wear. I want to be cute and fashionable, but not too dressy as it is a school-sponsored function. I have faith that you will provide me with some chic looks. I thank you in advance for any of your assistance.”

    To achieve a stylishly cool and relaxed Valentine’s Day look, pair casual pieces with dressy accents. Mix a few of your favorite wardrobe staples with bold pops of color for a fun and flirty speed date ready look.

    For look #1, pair a cheeky “Seduce & Destroy” printed jersey top with a sleek pair of leather pants. Add a pop of color with a bold pink pump and neon pink accented Cambridge satchel.
