Valentine’s Day: Date Night Outfits

Planning for date night attire may seem like a no-brainer but why not shake things up this Valentine’s Day? While a flirty dress is a quintessential choice, there are a lot more options than you might think! With the holiday of love quickly approaching, here are a few suggestions to help you crush your V-Day look!

Spice it Up

If you’re headed to an upscale dinner date this Valentine’s Day, match the occasion with a look that is just as sophisticated! From feisty cherry reds to sultry deep wines, this classic V-day hue symbolizes passion, adventure, and fire! Embody just that and make jaws drop in a sizzling maxi! Alternatively, trace your silhouette in a five-star-worthy bodycon dress that is guaranteed to have his full attention. Filet mignon who?

Play it Coy

Whether you’re going for soft and romantic or for a sexy and flirty vibe, these one-and-done pieces make for the perfect Valentine’s Day outfit! A nod to retro glam, our jumpsuits and rompers have been tweaked with a contemporary touch for the girl who just can’t be bothered with a dress this V-day.   Hello, style and comfort!

Slip into Sultry


From flattering bodysuits to ravishing little black dresses, modish black pieces exude confidence, glam, and mystery. Pair your favorite teddy with slim-fit pants for a sexy yet edgy look. Or, if you’re really looking to make a statement, show some skin with strategically-placed peek-a-boo cutouts! You in these steamy pieces will be the Valentine’s Day gift your boo won’t even know they needed!

Leave Your Print

Showcase your bold personality with outdoor-date-friendly prints! Prints are a great way to step out of your comfort zone without going overboard. A romantic picnic at the park calls for feminine florals while darling vintage-inspired polka dots are perfect for a theme park date! If adrenaline-inducing dates are more your speed, step into the wild side in animal print. Pro tip: for these dates, the focus should be on having fun. So, ditch the heels and pair with wedges or trusty sneakers instead!

Meet Your Match

What better way to show off that necklace you’ve been obsessed with than to match it with a flattering neckline? Play up your assets! While off-the-shoulder and boat necklines draw the eyes to your collarbones and shoulders, plunging necklines elongate your frame. If the bust area is your concern, a sweetheart neckline will work in your favor. Both for the well-endowed and the itty-bitty committee, sweetheart necklines enhance natural curves as well as create them for smaller bust sizes.

Appeal to All Senses

One way to set your Valentine’s Day look apart from your usual date night ensemble is to play with textures. Satin’s lustrous construction comfortably drapes over the body for an effortless luxe appearance without a weighty feel, while sultry smooth velvet delivers an understated yet sophisticated touch. For a more daring option, opt for crushed velvet. This plush fabric demands attention and will have all eyes on you!
