Celebrate Your Inner Valentine in Style

Style Necklace

Whether you have a special date for Valentine's Day or you are just celebrating with family, look great with these sweetheart-inspired selections all month long.

Rogue awakening

Want to pull off Gwen Stefani's signature red lip color but are afraid of the wax candy lips look? The trick is finding the right shade of red. If you have olive skin tones, look for orangey or tomato reds. Cooler skin? Stick to shades that have pink or blue tones. If you're feeling shy about going full-on bold red, try a red gloss like Sephora's Ultra Shine Lip Gloss in Shiny the Red and you'll be the embodiment of glamour. $14, sephora.com

Take a bow

Fall head over heels in love with this twist on a simple top from Swoon Boutique in Holly Springs. This drape-style blouse features a unique, scoop neckline with a bow accent on the back. Available in feminine colors like lilac, blush and coral for Valentine's Day, as well as white, black and mint. $39, shop.heartswoon.com

Feel the love

A heart necklace is de rigueur for Valentine's Day. However, Moon & Lola brings this classic up to speed with the Love Necklace, pictured above. Reminiscent of the famous Robert Indiana sculpture and the necklace Julianne Moore's character, Jules, wears in The Kids Are All Right, this statement piece is sure to make a lasting impression. $54, moonandlola.com
