V-Day Decoded: Chic Dates and Styles from NYC to Dallas

You’ve got the who (your date). Now, on to the what and wear. To hit all the bases, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite date spots across the country and paired them with statement style to remember. Ready, set, swoon.

Red Hot Romance, NYC

The Date: Dinner at New York’s Isola Trattoria & Crudo Bar, where chandeliers and elegant drapes take the greenhouse space to dramatic heights. The restaurant, located in the Mondrian Soho, calls upon the Amalfi coast for inspiration in both culinary and architectural design.

What to Wear: Zac Posen’s Cut Out Shoulder Bondage Dress, whose head-turning color and daring cut match the vibrant, sensual energy of Italy.

Fresh Moves, Dallas

The Date: Keep things low-key at Bolsa, a Dallas staple for fresh, seasonal eats. If the weather’s nice, snag a patio seat, share a pitcher of sangria, and tuck into gourmet flatbreads and dishes made from locally-sourced ingredients.

What to Wear: There’s no need for pomp and circumstance when Jennifer Zeuner’s Love necklace keeps your love right where he can see it – on your heart.

Funny Honeys, Chicago

The Date: Laughter’s a strong aphrodisiac, so start your night at The Second City, home to some of Chicago’s best improvisers and comedians. Later, take a stroll through Old Town and stop for impromptu drinks and bites as you roam.

What to Wear: The Bajra Exclusive Tie Dye Scarf not only keeps you cozy as you explore, it also makes your outfit – and eyes – pop.

Cool Comfort, Boston

The Date: The diverse selection of wine, brews, and craft liquor cocktails at Catalyst Restaurant bar make relaxed rendezvous a no brainer. After sharing sips, migrate to the main, rustic-modern restaurant for a special Valentine’s Day menu that includes oysters, lobster tortellini, and triple chocolate terrine.

What to Wear: Pair rag & bone/denim Relay Stripe Ankle Skinnies with a femme top for a look that moves seamlessly from the bar to dinner to wherever the night takes you.
