Whether you’re having a romantic evening in or a fun night out, denim makes the perfect addition to any Valentine’s Day outfit. And with consumers set to spend nearly $3 billion for the holiday, according to a survey by the National Retail Federation and Prosper Insights & Analytics, there’s no reason why denim can’t reap the benefits, too.
With embellished denim and bright colors emerging as some of the season’s top trends, you can feel festive and stylish in these red hot Valentine’s Day looks.
Boyish Jeans Harvey Raw-Edge Denim Jacket
Try on a bright denim jacket to feel festive and on-trend. This piece, with its raw hem and boxy fit, will add some edge to your outfit. Pair with pleather leggings and heels to complete the look.
Versace Heart Print Denim Jacket
For a bolder look, try a printed denim jacket with stark contrast like this Versace number. With neon yellow, green, blue and red accents, this can pair with virtually any piece for a unique Valentine’s Day look.
Aerin Large Raffia Heart Zip-Pouch
Sometimes you want to celebrate more subtly. In that case, it’s all about the details. Choose a flirty accessory like this pouch, featuring a faded denim-colored heart and matching blue tassels.
Mother Tripper Crop Fray Hem Flare Jeans
Make a statement with faded coral jeans, like this pair featuring blue undertones and moderate distressing. The cropped, flared leg and raw hem create the perfect setup for a chunky ankle boot.

Channel your inner child with a fun pair of jeans covered in white hearts. This high-rise, light-wash denim hits about three inches above the ankle to show off your favorite festive heels.
