Best Bet: French Connection Loving Crochet Pencil Skirt

Lace, whether guipure, eyelash, or Belgian, was all over the spring runways and is perfect for Valentine’s Day. While you may rather receive a sharp, sexy, and non-clichéd present, this pale pink pencil skirt with its delicate layer of crochet feels appropriately romantic. If the look is too girly, mimic the way it’s styled on the site by adding a sporty sweatshirt. Otherwise, simply add on a simple silk blouse for an easy office-to-candlelit-dinner outfit.
