6 Perfect Valentine's Day Outfits, Inspired by Our Fave Celebs

For many, Valentine's Day is a series of tribulations... stemming from what you should wear. How much red is too much red? Will my date think I'm overdressed? How am I not going to freeze?! But thanks to some inspiration from some of our favorite celebrities, dressing up for the occasion (or dressing down!) doesn't have to be an entirely lost cause. Here are some of our favorite V-Day inspired looks from some of the most fashionable celebs out there!

1. Taylor Swift

Seamed Short Sleeve Dress - ($37.50) Neiman Marcus Last Call 
Thin Silver Belt - ($11.99) Eddie Bauer 
Betsey Johnson T-Strap Heels - ($69.95) Onlineshoes.com

Taylor Swift is a beacon of classiness, so if you're going out to a fancy restaurant this Valentine's Day, channel Taylor's radiant red look with a flowy but tailored dress, a thin rose gold or silver belt and these dainty strappy sandals by Betsey Johnson! It's your best bet if you want all eyes on you!

2. Kristin Cavallari

Texture Marled Drape Blouse - ($68) Topshop
Double Pockets Pure Color Shorts - ($17.39) Chic Nova
Large Plaque Stretch Belt - ($19.97) Calvin Klein Outlet
Charles by Charles David Pact Pumps - ($39.60) Nordstrom Rack

Kristin Cavallari totally rocks this flirty yet sophisticated ensemble. The champagne-colored blouse perfectly balances out the bold and beautiful deep raspberry silk shorts. So if your V-Day plans this year entail a night out to a bar with the ladies, or even a hot date, prepare to dazzle with this outfit. If you're spending the holiday in a colder region where shorts aren't exactly weather permitting, this look would still look great with black tights underneath!

3. Reese Witherspoon

Bamboo Black Flats - ($19.99) Beyond the Rack
Planet Black Wool Sweater - ($32.95) House of Fraser
Jenni Kayne Floral Print Mini Skirt - ($75) The Real Real
Women's Dome Satchel - ($34.99) Target

If you have no plans for the day, but still want to be a bit festive, try a girly look like the one Reese has accomplished here. The floral red skirt adds a nice pop of red, but isn't overdone thanks to the simple black sweater and pointy-toed flats. You can even look this amazing doing errands too!

4. Zooey Dechanel

Heart Print Dress - ($39.90) Yes Style 
Panorama Heels - ($32.22) ASOS

If Valentine's Day is one of those holidays where you like to go all out (whether you're single or not!), follow in the fashion footseps of Zooey Deschanel from her appearance on SNL. Though we couldn't pin point her exact empire mini dress, we found a similar version that will do more than just foot the bill. The longer sleeves of this Yes Style frock make it more seasonally appropriate, plus the ruffle at the bottom with cause it to flare out. 

5. Emma Stone

Striped Heart Roundneck Sweater - ($44.99) at Saks Off 5th 
Evie Low Rise Super Skinny Jeans - ($35) Boohoo
Campus Tour Guide Coat - ($53.99) ModCloth
Rolled Brim Knit Beanie - ($6.90) Forever 21
Faux Leather Backpack - ($39.95) Sole Society
Steve Madden Rustina - (Now $159.98) Steve Madden

If there's one celebrity we look up to most in terms of street style, it very well may be Emma Stone. She always looks so casually cool and put together! If you want to embrace the heart-filled holiday, but in an understated way, slip on a graphic tee or sweater like this Saks Outlet one under what you might normally wear to class—it'll definitely add a bit of personality to your everyday outfit.

6. Rachel Bilson

Red Floral Cotton Blouse - ($12.83) Romwe
Drapey Pant - ($59.50) J.Crew Factory
Danielle Nicole Faux-Leather Envelope Clutch - ($38) Neiman Marcus
DV Dolce Vita Leopard Platform Pumps - ($69.95) DSW

When it comes to fashion, Rachel Bilson is another person we look up to regularly. This style queen spared no expense when it came to looking bold at this red carpet event! If your day plans for the big day include an internship or job, play up the hues of red with a pair of tailored trousers and a floral blouse. If you're feeling extra daring, pair the outfit with an animal print heel, like Bilson did here!
