Party dress

Valentine's Day calls for everything red as people usually relate the color with love but how about trying some different tones this season?

Tanvi Malik, co-founder at FabAlley says that red is a great color, but there are other unconventional colors and prints that can be explored to make the special day more exciting.

1. Pastels: If you'd rather have a more relaxed and soothing Valentine's Day, choose pastels as your color pantone. Vibrant colors make things bright and glamorous, but sometimes all you want is a low-key, soft look and pastels make for a perfect pick.

2. All shades of purple: People love pink for Valentine's Day because it is feminine, delicate and pretty, but the same can be said about purple. This year, choose a spread of purples and violets to add an unusual touch to your Valentine's Day.

Natascha Tate, In-House Stylist at LimeRoad too have some tips to share:

3. Blue valentine: A stunning blue dress can twist things up perfectly. A blue skater dress is simple yet stylish. Work it up with navy blue heels and black pearl earrings. Carry a nice black box clutch with it. For make-up, smokey eyes and neutral lip shade will work the best.

4. Ruffle romance: A black ruffled neck dress is a sexy thing to wear on a date night. Work it for the Valentine's Day with a pair of sky high stilettos and an embellished clutch. Pout on a scarlet red lip shade and brighten things up with a mineral bronzer. For jewelry, you can go for simple silver drops or a nice accent bracelet.

5. Discovering new colors like shades of grey's, white's, neon's, floral's etc and styles like bell bottom pants and shirt, long cut sleeves jacket with a dress, maxi sheer dress, long pencil skirt with a ruffle top hallmarks your presence and shake up the traditional conventions of wearing a red dress.

6. Accentuate the entire look with statement jewelry like crystal, bold neck pieces, metallic clutches and high heels.

Matteo Lambert, chief collection anager at Bata India lists down methods to add glamour to your footwear.

An effortless way to incorporate Valentine's feel into your outfit without overdoing it is to add a pop of color to it.

8. Color block your footwear with your outfit - Bordeaux sling-back heels with neutral pants, hot pink pumps with a white dress or scarlet ankle boots with a pair of denim. The trick is to have showstopper shoes! Match the bag with your shoes and wear silver or gold accessories for a chic look.
