'Gossip Girl' Costume Designer Eric Daman Shares His Valentine's Day Dressing Do's & Dont's! EXCLUSIVE

The man responsible for making Serena & Blair look so chic offered up tips on what to wear for your highly-anticipated Valentine’s Day date! Check out his latest line for Charlotte Russe & get his expert tips here!

Aside from helping Blake Lively and Leighton Meester morph into their very well-dressed characters on Gossip Girl, Eric Daman just launched his second line with Charlotte Russe! At the launch of the collection we got to chat with Eric himself about the latest line — and how to find the perfect get-up, just in time for Valentine’s Day.

“Don’t dress overly sexy with everything red! Red lips, dress, and thong is not the way to go. Pull it back a bit, and if you want to wear red only incorporate one element. Go for casual sexiness,” he said. “I love the more natural looks we’re seeing with makeup, I like the idea of a sheer pink gloss. It keeps it sexy and a little more sophisticated.”

Eric’s latest collection, full of fun minis and prints, is “More in tune with the Charlotte Russe audience. The dresses are much more body-conscious, but you can also still see elements that are very much my own, like the sheer arms and lace overlays,” he said.

Check out his latest collection and above if you’re still searching for the perfect get-up!
