No matter whether you plan on spending your Valentine’s Day with that special someone or with your best friend, finding the right outfit to wear is absolutely essential. Even if cupid hasn’t quite found you yet, you want to look your best if you plan on heading to a party or hanging out with a big group of friends. Below are some cute Valentine's Day outfit ideas no matter what your plans are.
For a Romantic Date
If you and your significant other are planning a fun or romantic date night, make sure that you dress for the occasion. Dressy outfits are perfect for a night out on the town or a romantic dinner for two. Even if your plans are casual, you want to dress the part.
The little black (or red) dress is always a good choice. Fit and flare dresses are trendy and perfect for any occasion. If you’re really looking to drive him wild, go with a red or black lace dress. For ladies with warmer skin tones, red may be a better choice and a more festive one too. Black is also a good choice, but you can add a little Valentine’s Day love to the look by wearing red lipstick or a pair of killer red heels. Opt for a pair of high heel wedges that are easy to walk in for maximum comfort. Simple accessories and a small clutch purse will keep his focus and attention on you.
Black skinnies with a festive top. If dresses really aren’t your thing or are inappropriate for your date, opt for a pair of fitting black skinnies and a pretty pink or red top. A fitted long-sleeved button down or sleeveless halter top are ideal for a night out. Pair the outfit with a pair of black flats or heels, a simple bracelet and a clutch purse.
For a Group Hangout
If you plan on going out with a big group of friends on Valentine’s Day, leave your jeans and t-shirt in the closet. Even if you plan on going somewhere casual, dress up for the occasion anyway.
Black pants and a feminine top. A pair of black skinnies will work well and a romantic pale pink chiffon top is a festive choice that isn’t over the top. Pair the outfit with a pair of black flats, a long pearl necklace and your favorite clutch.
Black pencil skirt with button-down top. You never know where Mr. Right will turn up. Be ready for anything in a form fitting pencil skirt and a cute button-down top. Opt for a black skirt and white top to keep things simple yet elegant. Accessorize with a pair of black pumps. Add red lipstick or a piece of red jewelry to make the look more Valentine’s Day friendly.
For a Valentine’s Day Party
If you plan on spending Valentine’s Day at a party, it’s not really necessary to “dress to the nines.” Nevertheless, you still want to look cute and festive.
Skater skirt and witty tee-shirt. A skater skirt is still casual but dressy enough to fit the occasion. Go for a pink color to be festive without going over the top. To keep things interesting, opt for a top with a witty saying to get the conversation started. Complete the look with a pair of heeled booties and simple gold accessories.
Black skinny pants, black silk tank and animal print blazer. Show off your wild side by pairing simple black skinnies with a black top and leopard print blazer. Accessorize with a red clutch and red pumps. This bold look is sure to get some attention and turn some heads.
For a Girl’s Night
Who says Valentine’s Day is only for lovers? A girl’s night out is a fun way to celebrate the occasion (and being single) without having to worry about buying gifts and getting dressed up.
Jeans and a sweatshirt. Your favorite pair of jeans and comfortable (but cute) sweatshirt is the perfect outfit if you plan on spending the night relaxing and watching movies with friends. Opt for a sweatshirt with a heart or a cute saying like “I love my pillows.” Don’t forget to wear a pair of cute pink or red knee socks.
Pink skinnies with a white top and black cardigan. If you’re feeling a bit festive, add some color to your look by wearing a pair of pink skinnies. Pale pink is best. A simple white top and black cardigan keeps the look casual but cute and comfortable.
A Few Final Tips
No matter how you plan on spending your Valentine’s Day, it’s important to remember that your best look is one that you feel comfortable and confident in. Here are some tips to make sure you nail your V-Day.
Choose a color and style that suits you. If pink or red doesn’t look good on you, don’t wear those colors. If you really feel the need, go for small accessories like a red clutch or bracelet. This way, you can still be festive without compromising your look. If you are uncomfortable in a form-fitting dress, go with something that is more your style. No matter how good you look, you will have a miserable time if you are uncomfortable the entire night.
Don’t go overboard with makeup. Keep it simple and natural. You want your date to see the real you – not layers of makeup.
