I always like to be dressed for the occasion. And you know I’m all about a themed outfit for the holidays, but I love a good unexpected outfit. And if you wear this colorblocked blazer and jean combo for Valentine’s Day, you’ll stand out in the best way.

white oversized blazer–$40 // black silky cami–same fit, just different top // faded straight jeans–on sale // Kendra Scott oversized heart necklace c/o // Tory Burch Kira quilted shoulder bag (small wallet on chain version) // XO beaded earrings // red heels // heart masks–5 for $12.50

This non-traditional Valentine’s Day look is bold and striking. You’re going to command attention when you walk into a room because it’s a sassy, confident look that catches your attention. The trick that makes this look work so well is the accessories, but let’s talk about what’s going on with the clothes first.

Straight jeans are the it jeans right now. While they’re not your beloved skinny jeans, they’re still slim enough to show off your curves and hit you right to show off your ankle. Then I added a black silky cami. Once again, it clings to your curves and is seductive. Now, what you do next is what transforms the outfit and makes it super chic.

Add  white oversized blazer. Even though it’s oversized, it’s still very suggestive and seductive because it hints at what’s beneath. White is not a color you see a lot of on Valentine’s Day, and this will make you stand out in a sea of black, pink, and red. It instantly becomes the focal point of your outfit, but also provides a great background to show off your Valentine’s-themed accessories.

To finish your outfit, you want all the red and pink! Here’s I went with red and pink XO earrings, a hot pink bag, and bright red heels. You could do a red bag and pink heels, or red heart earrings–you just want to really make the red and pink pop! This is what makes the outfit so striking. Don’t forget to add a Valentine’s-themed heart mask! The one I’m wearing is so comfortable, and comes in a 5 pack for $12.50.

Do you dress in red and pink on Valentine’s Day?
