12 Tips for Handling Valentine's Day at the Office

Roses Are Red, Violets Are Blue -- Keep Both of Them to Yourself on Feb. 14

Dress for Success, Not Your Date

Refrain from decking yourself out like a Valentine's Day store display.

A red or pink tie? Fine. It’s a subtle nod to the day, but not a bobble-head moment. That glittery red top that you plan to wear for dinner tonight? No blazer in the world will tone down that dazzler. And the rule is: if you can't wear a clothing item in front of an open fridge without shivering, it stays home from the office.

By all means, bring your after-work wear with you. But put it on after work.
