Dressing for a Valentine’s Day date can be tough. Your outfit depends on a lot of different factors, such as time of day, where you’re going, and who you’re going with. While there is a lot to consider, the most important thing is that you focus on enjoying your date, and that your outfit doesn’t get in the way of that. You should also pick something to wear that you’re comfortable in and that shows off your personality. For this Valentine’s Day, I put together the three outfit ideas below to match different style personalities and date activities. Let me know if you have a favorite in the comments!
CUTE & CLASSIC
You can never go wrong with a classic red dress on Valentine’s Day. Sure, it may seem like everyone will be wearing one, but you can still stand out with the right accessories. Since this fit-and-flare dress has a simple, polished silhouette, there’s a lot you can do to make the look your own. Polka dot tights are a fun addition, but to keep the outfit from getting overly girly, add a structured metallic envelope clutch. Classic black pumps and a retro-inspired statement necklace finish off the look nicely. This outfit would work well for a nice dinner, a concert or play, or a Valentine’s Day party.
SLEEK & EDGY
This outfit demonstrates the perfect way to wear boyfriend jeans on Valentine’s Day. The tailored black blazer adds to the menswear-inspired theme, while the flowy top and t-strap flats give the outfit more feminine touches. The studded black bag makes the look edgier, and it works to tie everything together. The zipper on the front of the blouse is another edgy detail that makes the look unique and interesting. I like this outfit, because it’s a great way to do dressed-up casual, which could be exactly what you’re going for depending on your Valentine’s Day plans! The look could work for drinks or dinner and a movie, and these versatile pieces will serve as solid going-out staples in your wardrobe.
CASUAL & ROMANTIC
This last look would be perfect for a daytime date, because it’s fairly casual compared to the others. The outfit has a quirky, romantic, bohemian vibe, since it combines pieces not typically worn together. The flowy, feminine high-low skirt contrasts perfectly with the chambray shirt. I love pairing a casual shirt with a skirt like this, because it transforms the otherwise dressy skirt into an effortless daytime look. The crochet ankle booties and pastel pink envelope clutch are feminine touches that add to the romantic feel of the outfit. This Valentine’s Day ensemble shows off a lot of personality, without trying too hard.
