Date-night outfits for Valentine’s Day


Dressing up ahead of a special date is half the fun – especially if you know what to look forward to. Dinner and a movie? You have outfits for that. Dancing all night? Ditto. But in case you need some new ideas to really slay this Valentine’s Day, scroll right down.

Our friends from Spree have given us outfit suggestions for every kind of date, including a night out with your girls.

Dinner and a movie

This is definitely dress-and-heels territory. Pair this cobalt wrap dress with cap sleeves with stand-out heels and pretty hoop earrings.

Going dancing

You can’t go wrong with sequins, but you may want to think twice about those stilettoes. You’ll get far better support from a block heel with ankle strap.

The surprise date

This could go either way. When you have no idea what to expect, you have to be ready for anything. Which means wearing a jumpsuit, basically. And tossing a pair of flats in a bag, just in case.

The picnic date

Ants, cold food, sitting on the ground… The things that pass for romance! But if you’re headed for the park or the beach, this playsuit and strappy sandal combo is just right.

Girls’ night out
