February 14 is sneaking up on us. You might reach for the same classic dress each year. We know, it fits like a glove and gets the job done. But why not try something new? We’ve created 5 fresh outfits for all different kinds of dates. Get inspired—and get ready for romance!
Our first look is dedicated to the usual date night plan and one of our favorite ways to celebrate. The ’90s slip dress made a big comeback last year and it’s perfect for Valentine’s Day. Slip into a slinky number and a pair of sexy ankle-wrap heels. P.S. Maroon is a great choice if all out red is too obvious for V-day.
2. Museum Hopping
If you’re planning on a casual day date and take out at home, here’s a perfect option. Where you’d normally reach for boyfriend jeans, try something different like a denim pencil skirt. It’s just as simple but a touch more feminine. Finish the look with a lacy top and fab accessories.
3. Dance The Night Away
Maybe he gifted you with concert tickets or you’re heading out to a jazz club this Feb 14. If you’re going to be movin’ and groovin’ all night, choose an outfit that’ll sway with you. Try a standout jumpsuit and low heels for style and ease.
4. Galentine’s Date
No date? No problem. Instead of loading up on Ben & Jerry’s and Notebook-like Netflix, round up your favorite gal pals and celebrate each other. For a GNO, we love a dark color palette and the juxtaposition of masculine/feminine elements. Trust us, the combo will make you look and feel good. And who knows, you might just find romance while you’re out.
5. Romantic Road Trip
If you can swing taking the whole day off, why not take a long, leisurely drive to a winery in an easy jeans and sneakers combo? At dusk you can easily transition your outfit from day to night. Ditch the sweater, swap your shoes, and use your wallet as a clutch as you head to a romantic dinner for two.
6. Movie Night
A date night classic, there’s nothing quite like sharing a bucket of popcorn in a dark theatre. To keep this look laid back, yet still flirty, pair your black skinnies with a simple heel and feminine sweater. Top it off with a moto jacket for a little extra oomf.
7. Take a Hike
If your V-Day plans include a date with Mother Nature, come prepared with an outfit that’s cute, comfortable, and photo-ready. Because there are many adorable selfies to come as you reach the summit. Rupert Sanderson hiking boots and a classic J.Crew down vest will keep you warm while you explore the great outdoors as two.
8. Netflix and Chill
For those couples that are always on the go, sometimes all you need is a couch and a Netflix account to unwind and spend quality time together. Keep it comfortable yet sexy by layering lacy sleepwear with an oversized cardigan.
9. Hit the Ice
There’s nothing more picturesque that gliding along the ice hand in hand. And dressing the part is half the fun. In a sweater dress and fuzzy earmuffs, your look is straight out of a rom-com.
10. Get Cooking
A Valentine’s Day dinner is all the more special when you cook it together. And even though you’re at home, you can still turn on the appeal with an off-the-shoulder sweater and slick leather skinnies.
