Valentine’s day is coming up on 14 February and it’s a perfect day to go on a romantic date with your significant other. But what are the best Valentine’s outfits for this romantic evening?
Here are a few of my ideas on what to wear on how to dress for Valentine’s Day with your beloved.
Valentine’s outfits to wear on a date
Do you celebrate Valentine’s Day? Do you tend to go out with your loved one?
While Valentine’s Day is often called a “hallmark holiday,” it does at the very least focus the attention on spending quality time with the one you love.
If you are heading out on a date, lucky you! Here are some Valentine’s outfits for you, no matter whether you are going to a swanky restaurant for an evening meal, or you are celebrating in a more casual lunch venue.
Don’t forget to let me know what you will be wearing for Valentine’s Day, or what your favorite date night outfit is, in the comments at the bottom of this article.
Below are my favorite ideas if you’re thinking about how to dress for Valentine’s Day. I’d love to know what you think.
Should you wear red for Valentine’s Day?
Red is considered the color of love and passion, so red is definitely an obvious choice if you are choosing how to dress for Valentine’s Day, and there’s a shade of red that will suit all skin tones, whether you opt for a shade which has more orange or more blue in its mix.
For a more romantic feel, you could add a touch of pink to your outfit. Or, just wear any color which makes you feel great!

Petra (above) opts for a style which has a romantic, old-fashioned feel to it, yet still manages to be very modern because of the addition of the patent accessories.
9 Valentine’s Day outfits for you
If you still have to decide on what to wear for Valentine’s day this year, here are 9 suggestions for you. Let me know which outfit you would be most likely to wear.
I think that a dress should be your number one option to look at. Certainly when you don’t normally wear dresses. That makes it extra special!
Op for something sexy that shows off the parts that you wish to highlight about your body. Don’t be afraid to show off some of your curves and be proud of them! Men love a woman who is confident about her body.
That doesn’t mean you have to go ultra-short or ultra-tight. Simply choose a dress which shoes off the part of you that you like best, whether that is your shoulders, decolletage or your legs.
Monika (above) opts for a below-the-knee pencil style.
Red pants with neutrals
If you would like to wear red in a more casual way, you might like to opt for a pair of red jeans.
White is always a beautiful option with red.
For an outfit which looks luxurious and has subtle sex appeal, you could choose satin.
Gala (above) wears an all-neutral outfit, but chooses to add color with her leather jacket.
Also very romantic is to wear a skirt. I like the idea of wearing a flowery skirt or you could wear your satin as a skirt rather than a dress, but then “roughen” it up with a leather jacket or make it more casual with a sweater.
Anita (above) wears her satin skirt with a cable knit sweater and booties.
Purple pants and red shoes
If you prefer to wear pants, how about wearing colorful pants in whatever your favorite shade is, whether you love purple, red, or pink for example.
You can keep the rest of your look neutral. A snakeprint or leopard print also works as a neutral and can be worn with any color at all.
A wrap blouse or dress
For a universally-flattering style, you really can’t go wrong with either a wrap top or wrap dress.
Marina (above) wears on-trend polka dots along with leather.
An off-the-shoulder top
If you do choose an off-the-shoulder style, you may need a strapless bra.
A red jumpsuit
Rather than a red dress, you could choose a red jumpsuit if you prefer to wear pants.
I couldn’t resist this heart-print sweater for a playful take on your Valentine’s outfit.
Here are the Valentine’s outfits from above together in a capsule wardrobe.
You could easily mix and match many of the tops, jackets and bottoms here.
For instance, how about wearing the white leather jacket with the satin skirt, teaming the white blazer with the jumpsuit, or wearing the off-the-shoulder sweater with jeans?
