Valentine’s Day is a great excuse to get out for an extra special night with your SO or a few of your besties. But if you’re like me, you don’t necessarily need your V-Day outfit to scream V-Day. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good red dress, but that doesn’t mean I only wear it come February 14th. So if you’re like me and want to look stylish, but will pass on the obvious choice, check out these alternate Valentine’s Day outfit options to celebrate in style.
Whether you’re headed out for a girls’ night, doing a super chill date night, or going big with a fancy dinner and a show, we’re sharing a few fun outfit options that work for Valentine’s Day that AREN’T a red dress.
1. Leather Leggings + Gray Tee + White Blazer
Easy to wear and perfect for sharing a giant bowl of pasta (hello high waist leggings!) over dinner. Add structure to leggings and a tee with a well-fitting boyfriend blazer. Finish the look with pumps or booties and consider yourself ready.
2. Slip Dress + Long Cardi
Doing it up big this year or got fun plans with your girls? I love the subtly sexy combination of a silky slip dress with an oversized, long cardigan layered over top. Simple booties and minimal jewelry make this a no-fuss, high-style look that anyone can pull off.
3. LPD (Little PINK Dress)
Let’s call this “red dress light.” Want to keep it festive but bring it down just a notch? Opt for a muted pink, dusty rose, or mauve-ish hue. It’s a universally flattering color palette that in my opinion is a super sophisticated way to wear pink.
4. Printed Skirt + Moto Jacket
A fun print is a great way to shake things up for a night out! A feminine print on bottom paired with a rougher, moto style jacket on top with a simple tee is a perfect girls’ night or date night combo!
5. Denim + Romantic Top
Super on trend for this year, the puff sleeve square neckline top shows a bit of skin in the prettiest of ways. Pair it with simple straight-leg denim and good flats or booties for a relaxed, casual date night vibe.
