Pink and red: They’re the quintessential Valentine’s Day colors, whether you’re picking out nail art or flowers. After all, red is the color of love. But this V-Day, we thought we’d switch things up a bit, go against the grain and opt for a look that screams less “pretty in pink.” Take a look at these 10 date night outfits that are anything but rosy.


1. Classic Black and White: Sometimes Valentine’s Day calls for a va-va-voom outfit, and this one is just that. If you can’t resist adding a bit of red, consider accessorizing with a red clutch like this one. (via My Silk Fairytale)


2. Chic Neutrals: Keep it crisp and clean with a monochrome, yet jazzy outfit. We’re swooning over these snakeskin print jeans and white blazer. (via Dulce Candy)


3. Tulle Skirt: Just because you’re not wearing pink doesn’t mean you can’t go girly. A tulle skirt not only amps the romance, but also introduces unique texture to your outfit. (via Atlanta-Pacific)


4. Punchy Orange Pants: If you want to make a serious statement, these orange pants are your dream come true. Pair with a flirty lace top for a feminine look. (via The Chicago Life Blog)


5. Fun Statement Necklace: Statement necklaces take every outfit to the next level. If you’re stuck figuring out what to wear, top off your simple look with a jeweled piece. (via Lookastic)


6. Black Shift Dress: When you’re really in doubt, a LBD will never do you wrong. (via The Petticoat)


7. Pop of Color: A lime green jacket? Check. Metallic shoes? Check. A totally chic look? CHECK. (via Cashmere in Style)


8. Graphic Sweater: Say bonjour to your valentine with an ultra-preppy look like this one. Add a pop of color with a fun, bright pair of shoes. (via Atlantic-Pacific)


9. Baby Blue Swing Dress: We’ll admit, Jillian’s outfit is a tad summery, but for those of you who live where it’s warm (we’re jealous), it’s perfect. To make it winter appropriate, add tights and a leather jacket. (via Jillian Harris)


10. Metallic Details: Of course, we couldn’t resist an outfit with a touch of glitter. Whether it’s a glitter clutch, a blingy statement necklace or a metallic skirt, all that shine will have you feeling the love this Valentine’s Day. (via Curvy Girl Chic)
