With the winter holidays only just coming to a close, it’s time we substitute our expensive brands for more affordable looks this Valentine’s. Don’t worry; here at Cliché, we will help you trade in those wallet-crunching outfits for affordable look-a-likes and stylish pieces with our low-cost Valentine’s Day outfit ideas.

Woven Heart Frayed Stripe Poncho ($19.60, forever21.com)

If you’re looking for something a little less dressy, consider the Woven Heart Frayed Stripe Poncho from Forever 21. This soft, knit poncho features an open front, frayed trim, and multi-stripe pattern. It’s subtle yet vibrant burgundy color and handkerchief hem will look perfect when paired with ripped jeans or even a skater skirt. Trade in your dress and heels for this causal look and pair it with a simple shirt, some knee-high boots, and a long necklace. You’ll be turning heads all night with this simple yet classy style. This look is best for a long night out on the town.

Off-Shoulder Mini Dress with Trumpet Sleeve ($24, us.ASOS.com)

Our final must-have this Valentine’s Day follows the off-shoulder fashion trend that everyone is still buzzing about. This red, off-the-shoulder mini dress from ASOS features a flared-gone-chic sleeve design, flowy hem, and elastic strap around the shoulders for optimum control. Trade in the sexy, bodycon look for this more flirty and refined style for a casual date or for a more comfortable long night. Pair it with sandals or heels and a long lined poncho-style coat for walking outside, and you will absolutely look your best this February 14.

Don’t let high-end brands convince you that looking good has to come at a hefty price. There are several reliable brands with runway-style clothing that will keep you looking your best while saving tons!

Complete Your Outfit With Your Nails

by

If you are as obsessed with your nails as I am, you live by two very important rules: chipped nails are your worst enemy, and the color must always go hand in hand with your outfit. Some girls don’t necessarily consider the color of their nails when getting dressed—which is fine—but let me tell you,  when you complete your outfit with your nails, it makes all the difference! Pairing a red top with bright orange nails can really throw off your whole get up.

Pay attention to the color wheel—yes, that big circular board with a bunch of colors that was taught in art class. The color wheel is a great way for you to visually see how your purple nails enhance your yellow loose knit sweater. All you have to do is locate the color of your choice on the wheel and match it with the corresponding color on the opposite end.

If you don’t like incorporating bright colors, flashy designs, or don’t want to change the color of your nails on a weekly basis, then shoot for the standard nudes. These can include light pink hues or different versions of pastels. For an added touch, incorporate some sparkles—they really add a feminine touch.

If you are getting into the fall spirit and love dark nails, deep burgundy reds are always a great choice for brisk weather outfits. But if you’re hesitant, stick with the one color that matches everything—black!
