Valentine’s Day may not be a priority in your mind, but, whether you are dodging it or partaking in the celebration of love and affection, there is no denying that the pink and red family of colors excite our eyes. With all sorts of shades of pink and red to choose from, I guarantee you can find a color that will make you ease into spring and maybe even get some admiration from it.
First up let’s play with your girly side. I love this cutesy flare dress with a bowtie and the cutout sides. I believe this dress is extra appealing because of the peekaboo effect with the light pink poking through the darker hue. Wear this sassy number with silver or tan shoes and/or cater it to your specific plans. This is a lovely choice because you can potentially wear this through the end of summer.

Next up is an angled bright pink dress that drapes perfectly. I love this neckline and the dress itself is flattering and uber sophisticated. It’s a “less is more” kind of look that can be left simple or can be played up with the right accessories. For spring try it with a bold necklace and some bangles.

This next pick eliminates having to worry about finding a bold necklace to wear with it because it comes with the dress! This wine colored flowing dress is stunning. Although it’s a deeper hue, I couldn’t pass up showcasing it. The embellished neckline and the halter style of the dress create an effortless look. I don’t like the shoe choice for the model, but you would look GOLDEN if you paired it with metallic shoes.

Okay, so my last feature isn’t different or unusual, but that’s the beauty of it. The Herve Leger Geo Lace Bandage dress is always a hit and never goes unnoticed. Until someone designs another type of dress that makes females feel as confident in their own skin as this dress, this dress is the ultimate option.
