It's wedding season and many of us have a good friend or even a BFF that's tying the knot this summer. We know it's rude to try and upstage the bride, but that doesn't mean we can't still dress to impress (afterall, we may meet our own Prince Charming there!). Just keep silhouettes simple but striking and add a little bit of bling that'll help you stand out in your accessories. ThisNext Lifestyle Tastemaker, Jo Gartin, inspires us with her picks on getting ready for your best friends bridal bash in style.

In celebration of Valentines Day, and in an effort to not be overly sappy, we've decided to find five ways to show help show your festive side with pieces that can still be stylish after! A pop of red or pink is a great way to show your appreciation for this holiday of love, and by steering away from lacy hearts and anything too girly and sweet, we're able to still wear many of these V-pieces even after today!Red is always a bold and sensual color, and bright pinks are fun and eye-catching. Soft blush pinks are the perfect compliment to the neutral hued trend for Spring! Take a look at our fave ways to wear red and pink for Valentine's Day and after!Hot Heels - Red shoes are the classic sexy accessory, adding just the right amount of daring! Stilettos make our legs look great and patent leather pair will really put the focus on those gams! Try blush toned pumps for a more demure style!The Dress - A red dress is a true show-stopper and exudes sexy confidence and will really make you stand out! Pair with red heels for a truly festive look, or opt for a pair of leg-elongating nude pumps! Need a bright color but not digging the red? Hot pink is a great choice and makes the look more fun and youthful!Red Bag - Whether it's to run errands with, or as a sweet little bag for the night, a red bag is always a great accessory. It's a great statement piece as a tote or a clutch and gives even the simplest of ensembles a dating vibe!Skirt/ Shorts - If a red dress may be a little much, try a flirty skirt or pair of structured shorts to wear just the right amount of color! A flared mini is flirty and sweet, while cuffed shorts are chic. Pair them with blush or nude heels to really show off those legs!
