3 Valentine’s Day Date Night Style Ideas


With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, now is the perfect time to plan out that special outfit. I don’t know about you, but I love dressing to a theme and will undoubtedly be wearing quite a bit of red come the big day. Of course, there are a ton of colors and prints that would work well for the occasion. Here are a few different outfit ideas for February 14 — or for any date night in general.

Look #1: Casual Date Night

Going to the movies or hanging out at a diner calls for a more relaxed outfit. To create a casual, yet classy ensemble, reach for your favorite pair of dark wash skinny or straight-leg jeans. Dark rinse denim looks flattering on everyone, especially when you rock it with a pair of pointed toe flats. Throw on a button-down pink shirt with a fitted black blazer for a style that is sure to impress your date. Seal the deal with a swipe of statement pink lipstick, and you’re good to go.

Look #2: Fashion-Forward Flirt

If you’re feeling a bit more daring, try this on-trend date night idea. Begin with a sleek pencil skirt in a statement color like fuchsia or marsala (Pantone’s Color of the Year; see how I wore it here). Pair it with a printed oversize floral top for a look that is very Dolce & Gabbana-esque. Finish things off with some black pumps, lipstick in the same shade as your skirt, and a structured black handbag. Your outfit will be sure to wow — and your confidence level will be through the roof.

Look #3: The Polished Romantic

This look is perfect for an intimate dinner at a fancy restaurant. Choose a dress in pale pink or deep oxblood to channel the romance of the evening. If you want something really special, find a dress with a lace overlay, beading, or embroidery. These details will make the dress into a statement item so that the rest of the outfit is easy to put together. Add a pair of sparkly earrings and pale metallic gold or muted black heels. Wrap it all up with a bit of pale pink lipstick and, if your hair is long enough, a loose braid or a messy bun. Your date won’t be able to look away!
