1 Piece, 3 Ways: Valentine's Day

1 Piece 3 Ways: Cute and Cheap Outfit Ideas for Valentine's Day

With Valentine's Day around the corner, there are a lot of different options when it comes to attire. Today I will be styling this basic white sweater from Forever 21 three different ways for all types of Valentine's Day outings. Whether you're going to a fancy dinner or celebrating with your girlfriends, keep reading for some fun (and affordable) outfit inspiration!

Dressy Dinner Date Outfit Idea

If your Valentine's Day will include a romantic dinner, try pairing a basic sweater with a soft hue skirt. I love pastels, especially for Valentine's day. I've been seeing sweaters over skirts and dresses all over Pinterest, which inspired this look. Paired with some nude heels and a statement necklace, you'll look demure and elegant for your special date.

Look One: Sweater ($15.80) / Skirt ($12.80) / Necklace ($12.80) / Heels ($34.95)

Casual Date Outfit Idea

If you'll be going on a more casual date, keep it simple but cute in some printed pants and fun flats. The simple top will balance the two pieces out. These flats could also be a closet staple when spring finally comes around..

Look Two: Sweater ($15.80) / Jeans ($21.60) / Flats ($47.95)

Girl's Night Out Winter Outfit Idea

Celebrating Valentine's Day with girlfriends MIGHT just be the most fun. This basic sweater paired with a cobalt blazer and boyfriend jeans is fun and daring. Pair it with some nude booties and gold jewelry for a twist on the classic look.

Look Three: Sweater ($15.80) / Jeans ($24.80) / Blazer ($29.80) / Booties ($55.99) / Necklace ($14.95)

Which look would you try? Let us know in the comments and tweet me @allyssaamarie if you have any other ideas for a "1 piece, 3 ways" idea!
great looks, but I just know I'd stain the heck out of a white sweater.

Perhaps... but it's only $15.80! I bought white jeans from Forever 21 thinking I'd ruin them, too, and I actually kept them surprisingly clean. I love that I can try a trend like that without feeling like I'm throwing money away.
