Valentine’s Day can be stressful, especially when you’re on the hunt for the perfect gift for the one you love, but when it comes to your holiday getup, we wanted to make it as easy as possible. The goal is always to feel your best, right? So we’ve rounded up outfit ideas for both ladies and gents for any V-Day dress code.

Cozy on the Couch

If a movie night is in order for your Valentine’s Day date night, comfy attire is a must! Whether you opt for stylish sweats or go straight to your pj’s, there are adorable options available that are great for everyday, yet still provide a bit of V-Day flair.

Shop these looks:

Ladies: All items from Pink

Gents: All items from Gap

Girls/Guys Night Out

Whether you’re going solo or the two of you prefer to spend the night with your friends, hitting the town for a night out is a great way to celebrate Valentine’s Day. If you want to get festive, include holiday-appropriate color schemes like reds and pinks. We loved both of these looks because although they are the perfect pairing for a night out on V-Day, they can also be a part of our everyday wardrobe.

Shop these looks:

Gents: Jacket: Gap | Shirt: Gap | Jeans: Gap | Shoes: Express

Ladies: Jacket: Evereve | Top: Express | Jeans: Evereve | Shoes: Evereve

Casual Date Night

We’re big fans of a laid-back date night at our go-to restaurant, but that doesn’t mean we don’t like to put on something new for our celebrations of love. This romantic blush top is the perfect pairing to dark wash denim and booties. Give him a subtle way to match you with a color-coordinated bow tie!

Shop these looks:

Gents: All items from Express

Ladies: All items from Apricot Lane

Romantic Dinner for Two

Getting all dressed up in your best attire can be so fun, and Valentine’s Day is the perfect excuse to do just that! We fell in love with this swoon-worthy LRD (little red dress) that could be easily paired with a shawl, coat, or leather jacket. For the gents, go classic with a dress shirt and pants. If you’re feeling extra festive, try out a Valentine-inspired tie!

Shop these looks:

Ladies: Dress: Express | Earrings: Evereve | Shoes: Express

Gents: Shirt: Halberestadt’s | Pants: Halberstadt’s | Shoes: Broadway Shoe Co.


Have a great Valentine’s Day, everyone!
