V-Day movie fashion!

Valentine's Day is a day filled with love and of course... fashion! Fashionistas everywhere probably spend hours finding that special outfit or outfits (haha) for that one special person or for a girls Valentine's Day out. What better way to find inspiration on V- Day than from a sweet and romantic movie? We've picked three of our favorite movies that are sure to inspire you.

Carmen Jones (1954) is a movie about love, passion, betrayal and tragedy. Carmen Jones is a young and free spirited woman whose  beauty is the object of many men's desires. However, Carmen sets her sights on young army officer, Joe, who is engaged to Cindy Lou. Joe quickly succumbs to Carmen's charms, leaving Cindy Lou, thus beginning the tragic love story.

Look to try: Carmen's signature style is a mid calf skirt with a sexy split down the middle paired with an off the shoulder top tucked in and topped off with strappy black heels for a simple, elegant, and sexy look. 

Dirty Dancing (1987) is set in the summer of 1963, where innocent 17-year-old Frances "Baby" Houseman vacations with her parents at a Catskill's resort. One evening, she is drawn to the staff quarters by dancing music. There she meets Johnny, the hotel dance instructor, who is as experienced as Baby is naive. Baby soon becomes Johnny's pupil in dance and the rhythm of love.

Look to try: In the famous lifting scene, Baby wears one of the most iconic dresses. It's a soft pink hue that hits just below the knee with a flirty pleated skirt.

Sabrina (1954) is a Cinderella like story filled with love, humor, and charm. Bogie and Holden are the mega-rich Larrabee brothers of Long Island. Bogie's all work, Holden's all playboy. But when Sabrina, daughter of the family's chauffeur, returns from Paris all grown up and glamorous, the stage is set for a little family feud as the brothers fall under the spell of Sabrina's charms.

Look to try: Sabrina's vintage cocktail dress was definitely before its time. It has a detachable train that leaves a column strapless dress. Try a strapless LBD with white gloves for an elegant sophisticated Valentine's Day look.
