Your Fashion Guide to Valentine’s Day

February 14th is arguably the most romantic day of the year, which means you’ll need a memorable outfit, no matter what you get up to. Whether hosting a “Galentine’s” dinner with your friends or having a first date, Valentine’s Day provides the perfect opportunity to have fun with fashion.

If you need some outfit inspiration, we’ve got you covered:

Valentine’s Day with Your Partner

The outfit you choose for Valentine’s Day or evening depends on what you and your spouse have planned. For example, if you’re heading out for a fancy dinner, you can’t go wrong with a red curve-hugging midi dress with matching red heels⁠—there are few outfits sexier than this! But if red isn’t your color, a monochrome fuchsia or pink look is just as chic.

For more casual outings, high-waisted boyfriend denim paired with an oversized pink blazer, worn over a shirt in another shade of pink, is a romantic and fashion-forward option. Leather pants paired with a red or pink chunky sweater and sneakers are a comfortable casual look.

First Date Outfit Ideas

On first dates, you want to show off your best features without showing off too much. If you’re going out for a nice dinner, consider a hot pink bodysuit matched with leather pants and black ankle boots. One-piece jumpsuits are also an excellent option for first dates as they often accentuate your waist and are relatively stress-free when it comes to styling⁠—all you need to worry about are shoes and a jacket. Give your black jumpsuit a Valentine’s Day flare with a pink purse or fuchsia heels. If you’re going on a day date, it’s important to feel comfortable, so wearing your favorite jeans, a red or pink t-shirt, sneakers or combat boots, and a shacket is totally acceptable.

Casual Valentine’s Day Looks

Sweatsuits have really taken off over the past three years. So, if you’ve got some casual Valentine’s Day plans, there’s nothing wrong with wearing a pink or red monochrome sweatsuit paired with white sneakers. Baggy denim, a corset-style bodysuit, a leather jacket, and new sneakers is also a sexy yet comfortable and casual look. Alternatively, wear black yoga leggings or joggers with an oversized sweater in your favorite Valentine’s Day hue.

If you’re looking to take a few fashion risks, a rust or dark red dress paired with western boots is definitely a trendy, head-turning option. It’s not overly Valentine’s Day-ish, but red ties the holiday into your outfit.

Celebrating With Your Friends

The best Valentine’s Day plans will always include your friends! If you plan on hitting the town for margaritas and tacos, consider tossing on a pink satin midi dress, a neutral cardigan, and knee-high boots that complement the color of your cardigan. A flowy, satin dress is great for occasions when you want to eat a lot without feeling restricted by pants or tight clothes.

Baggy denim is always another superb option; it can be easily dressed up or down. Wear your denim with heeled sock boots, a frilly blouse, and a structured jacket for a less casual look. For a more relaxed and effortless look, pair your oversized denim with a cotton long-sleeved button-up shirt, gently tuck it into the front of your jeans, and finish the look with some crisp sneakers.

The best outfit for Valentine’s Day really depends on what you’re going to be doing, but adding colors like pink and red are no-fail. But planning your outfit well before the big day will help you avoid feeling stressed on the most romantic holiday of the year.
