We're not mushy girls, but we wanted to get you something for Valentine's Day. Roses are overdone and chocolate's not for everyone, so instead of going down those clichéd paths, we came up with this idea for a fashion editorial instead. At first glance, it might seem girly—all that pink, yikes!—but on closer inspection, we think you'll find it's anything but sweet. Instead of just going for overt romanticism, we took a tiny smidge of inspiration from Andie Walsh, a.k.a. Molly Ringwald, and created looks that are marvelously modern and a little offbeat. We hope you love the results just as much as we do...
As always, our Fashion Editorials are completely shopable, so be sure to check out all the looks and purchase anything you please!
