5 Outfits for Valentine’s Day: Your Must-Have Style Guide

by Faran Krentcil


Outfits for Valentine’s Day should follow just one rule: you’re dressing for you and nobody else.

Whether you’re stepping out for a night with a romantic partner or a group of girlfriends, your look should make you feel confident and comfortable. It’s a holiday about true love, after all, and what greater love is there than a woman’s love for her clothes?

Check out these five outfits for Valentine’s Day that will have you swooning.

1. For Classic Romance

If “so pretty” is your ultimate compliment, consider a ruffled cocktail dress with just the right amount of sheer fabric. For an evening with a special someone, a lace fit-and-flare dress is the perfect mix of flirty and elegant. And in true V-Day form, a sweetheart neckline is a perfect choice.

2. For Casual Charm

You don’t have to make a big effort to make a big impact. Consider a lush, velvet blouse with a neckline that’s subtly revealing. Pair it with jeans for a ’90s Romeo + Juliet revival, or black leather pants for an elevated take on rock n’ roll style. Whether you’re hitting the dance floor or just grabbing a drink and some pizza, even the smallest details, like a romantic, textured fabric, will make you shine.

3. For Red Carpet Royalty

Those lucky enough to have a black tie event on February 14 are in for a golden opportunity. Outfits for Valentine’s Day don’t get any more Hollywood than a formal (but never stuffy) dress, one that marks a special occasion and sparks a real “wow” moment wherever you go. Consider a dress with a strapless siren neckline and clean, structured shape, for a show-stopping look and a nod to timeless Hollywood classics.

4. For Effortless Cool

The course of true love never did run smoothly, and neither did a search for the perfect pair of jeans. Fortunately, this deep blue dream denim is made with an innovative 360ยบ stretch fabric that lifts and sculpts your behind. Plus, the high-rise cut boasts an invisible front panel to smooth and shape your torso. Thanks to the style and perfect-fitting innovation, these jeans are a go-to staple for date night and beyond.
