February Trend Watch

by Abigail Danian

February is here and romance lingers throughout the entire month. How do you prepare for that romantic night out with your significant other? Find a dress you can wear for a multitude of occasions, transitioning from one date night to another with a simple swap of accessories.

Culottes

Wear them in tweed, print or a solid color like green or navy. Throw on a cropped sweater, a tassel necklace, a pair of booties and you are ready to go! The Hanover Linen Culottes by Nasty Gal are a favorite, $78.

Velvet

Valentine’s Day is a fun excuse to wear rich fabrics like velvet. Look for the Velvet Wrap Front Dress by Long Tall Sally, $119.

Extra Long Sleeves

Long sleeves made a dramatic appearance by Marc Jacob and Stella McCartney during last fall’s fashion week. You’ll be thankful when you have the extra long sleeves on your brand new sweater to keep you warm when it is cold and snowing. Try the Mayer Speckled Duster Cardigan by Cloth & Stone, $190.

Fur

Wear it for any occasion, whether it’s the streets, the slopes or meeting a friend for coffee. The best part about adding a touch of animal print is that you can easily pair it with pieces you already own. For a put-together look, try wearing a colored vest or a fun animal print over all black to bring a fresh pop of color to the ensemble.

Show off those amazing arms with a boxy cut like the Roxanne Faux Fur Vest in collegiate green. Even if you’re not crazy about your arms, this slimming cut flatters them. By Guess, $140.

For a sleeker look, go for Bella Furs’ Rex/Mink Reversible Vest, $3,195.
