There are many ways to celebrate Valentine’s Day, whether it be with that special someone, your friends, or your family. And depending on what you’re doing, there are also many different outfit choices.
Whatever kind of outfit you’re looking for, here are five styling ideas for any occasion.
If you’re headed to a fancy dinner this Valentine’s Day, you need to look the part. You want to impress your date by perfectly blending elegance with a little sensuality. Go for a little black dress, heels, and classic coat (shearling or leather would also work, depending on the weather D.C. brings us). This velvet dress, this tighter number, and this totally unique piece are perfect for a romantic dinner and drinks. But make sure to leave a little something to the imagination; it’ll preserve mystery and interest.
Casual day date:
If you and your significant other aren’t really big on making Valentine’s Day a whole shindig, and would rather grab coffee during the day or head to a museum together, you can still get into the holiday spirit. Opt for jeans and a red or pink sweater. These jeans are trendy without trying too hard and would pair perfectly with this top. Just because you’re dressing down doesn’t mean you shouldn’t look cute.
Hanging with the girls:
If Valentine’s Day actually means Galentine’s Day to you, fear not: you can still wear something cute. Pink is such a fun color to incorporate in February, and something like this babydoll dress would look perfect with a pair of black leather booties for martinis with your girlfriends (very “Sex in the City,” but circa 2018). And if you’re hosting a party for your best ladies, try a fun hostess dress like this red number with a big bow detail in the back from Kate Spade New York (who also makes a ton of fun pieces perfect for Valentine’s Day).
Cozy night at home:
Dinner, drinks, being out — that all sounds fun and all — but if it’s not up your alley, don’t force it. If your idea of a perfect Valentine’s Day is a cozy night at home with your significant other, make it happen and have no shame in your decisions. You’re probably doing what most other people wish they could do. But that being said, maybe tonight is not the night to break out your holiest sweats and your favorite worn out t-shirt from college. After all, you don’t want to kill the romantic mood completely. Try layering this incredibly soft and comfortable bralette (which comes in tons of color so you can pick your favorite) over a loose long-sleeve thermal tee, and this pair of cute (and totally veg worthy) joggers. Your significant other won’t be able to take your eyes of you because effortless has never looked so good.
For the creatives:
Some of us would describe our style as a tad bit eccentric, and that certainly shouldn’t fall to the wayside on Valentine’s Day. Incorporate your unique fashion sense by wearing this flowy maxi dress with these on trend sock boots or a fedora for that alternative vibe. Wear the velvet black dress or the leather skirt proudly. Expressing yourself will only make you more attractive to the right partner.
