Valentine’s Day/Lunar New Year Look

Valentines Day Look Modnitsa Styling

Happy (almost) February! It’s the best month of the Winter (I think) – as the stress of the Holiday-aftermath is over, the longest, most dreary month of Winter is also over, and after it comes March with a promise of Spring. It’s also the shortest month, and comes with Lunar New Year and Valentine’s Day – both holidays that are fun and happen to have something else in common – the color red!

Whether you’re planning a fun Chinese New Year Celebration, or need a cute look for a Valentine’s Day Date or Party, red is a great color to include in your outfits. It’s a passionate, energetic and confident color, and if you pair with other bold colors, it creates a remarkable statement bound to bring compliments!

In today’s outfit, I created a red-and-green look, with touches of various shades of the color throughout, mixing in some prints and textures to elevate it further.

Red and green color combo does have a Christmas-y feel so many people avoid it, but if done tastefully, it can look very elegant. The key is to choose shades of both colors that have a refined quality – and are richer and deeper and don’t clash with each other.  

I started the outfit with this Novato Skirt from Anthropologie (mostly sold out, but I linked some other red options below), and paired it with the Zadie Striped Button Down (also from Anthro). For my outer layer, I wore the Clariene Wool & Cashmere Coat by Theory, and finished the outfit with Charlotte Olympia Kitty Flats, Clare V Snake Embossed Leather Foldover Clutch and Wolford Stockings. As the final finishing touches, I accessorized with my Evocateur Udaipur Cuff Bracelet and my custom Hammered Half-Moon Necklace by Made By Mary (that has mine, Charlies and my husband’s initials on it).

I hope this outfit inspires you to put some fun Lunar New Year/Valentine’s Day Looks together from your wardrobe!

Would love to see if you end up playing around with red and green in your looks, please share on Instagram using #ModnitsaStyle, and I’ll repost on my Insta Stories!
