If something beautiful and flirty is your vibe, Lana's look is probably just the thing to inspire your date night style! I love the smooth, flowy mix of silk with the pretty pattern of lace. She paired her pink-on-pink combo with gray suede OTK's, which looked amazing! So, def think about rocking those with a lace mini, if ya got one! I wanted to re-envision this soft color palette, though, using some more practical and probably-in-your-closet items. A gray lace skirt of almost any silhouette - pencil, A-line, mermaid- and length -mini, midi, maxi- can be paired with a pale silk blouse (again, I'd layer favorite Icebreaker base piece underneath) to recreate Lana's play between smooth and patterned. I couldn't resist topping this look with a Lana-esque faux fur coat, but a wool swing coat or peacoat will add warmth as well, while looking appropriately formal. Silver pumps make a pretty (and much more practical) option than gray suede boots. Alternatively, if you have slim-heeled black booties, you can use those too - just add another touch of black somewhere: purse, bracelet, earrings, even your watchband. Perhaps, instead of gray, you've collected yourself a pink lace (or tulle or scalloped or otherwise femme and flirty) skirt along your shopping way. In that case, this is the perfect time to explore the gray-and-pink scenario by pairing it with a chunky gray sweater. Finish it with nude lace-up heels..or metallic flats for you gals who abso don't do heels :) Any light colored-coat will top this combo nicely, while maintaining the soft color palette. You can accessorize with rose gold baubles, or silver - especially if you've used metallic shoes- , or even gold and crystal since the gold picks up the warmth of the pink. Oh the options! The choices! It's "pick one and have fun" tonight..or tomorrow or any day in the future where you want to feel like a dreamy, new romantic :) Happy Styling...and Happy Valentine's Day. Much love from me to you as we share this sweet romance we call the love of fashion! XOs -Brie
