Between NYC, Washington, and Chicago, our editors are in the midst of sub-zero temperatures, but managing to keep warm between jam-packed event calendars, spending time with our Galentines, and exploring new restaurants for brunch. This month, we’re inspired by love and drawn to romantic shades of red and pink, lush fabrics such as velvet and lace, and a variety of girly motifs like hearts and bows.
We incorporate edgy elements such as leather, moto boots, and camo print to avoid over-the-top femininity, as pictured by Bitch in the City Ally below.
Whether you spent Valentine’s snuggled with someone special or bonding with your besties, you’ll fall head over heels for our February must-haves. Here’s what we are serving up on our February Fashion Menu.
Although we’re dreaming romantically of spring, it’s undeniable that it is still sweater weather. This ribbed cashmere turtleneck in electric red fits perfectly in anyone’s Valentines wardrobe. Cozy up to a low-key date night in this textured pullover sweater from Madewell.
For those of you lucky enough to be whisked away this winter to warmer temps, this flirty asymmetrical BCBG Remmie top in red is a must-have for that beach getaway. Staying local? Chicago Editor in Chief Kristin sure is, and she can’t wait to rock this top with her leather skirt at a girls night out.
DC Baby Bitch Amanda upgraded her go-to t-shirt with this J. Crew structured ruffled shirt.There’s nothing better than feeling fancy and comfortable.

Heading out for champagne and martinis on Friday? Don’t have time to head home to change after work? This REISS Orta Lace Pencil Skirt can certainly come off as chic and classy in the office, yet fun and romantic when the sun goes down.
Scallops and bows, oh my. Kate Spade released a few fun, flirtatious frocks in hot pink and black just in time for the holiday of love. Amanda thinks there is nothing more flattering than a fit-and-flare frock. She will step up her look with this hot pink ASOS scuba dress.

Kristin has been eyeing these red Valentino Patent Bow Pumps ever since she bought them in black. Let’s be honest, we can’t wear five-inch heels every day, these “lower” pumps are amazingly comfy and are the perfect shoe to wear to work, a party, or even with a pair of skinny jeans.
