Valentine’s Day Outfit Ideas for Every Occasion

1. Bold red dress

Move over LBD, a bold red dress is having its moment! Yes, red is expected, but it’s Valentine’s Day after all! By pairing it with black heels instead of pink, you look classy-not cheesy!
Wear it to: date night/dinner, business/work event

2. slip dress + long coat

This outfit is on the luxurious looking side, but it’s good to be covered for whatever life may throw at you, right? 😉 You can add in touches of “Valentine’s Day” with red nail polish and a bold red lip!

Wear it to: classy plans such as a high-end restaurant, classy dinner party at your CEO’s house, a show or musical in the city

3. pink tweed blazer + fancy blouse + dress pants

By bringing in some red (or pink) to your outfit, you can still dress for the day while looking professional and not having your outfit covered in hearts! Extra professional points if that red or pink happens to be in an already professional workwear piece…like a blazer!
Wear it to: work

My staying in outfit of choice? Leggings, a sweatshirt, and my robe! Though that one isn’t pictured because it’s not all that exciting to photograph haha.

I hope this post helped you with your Valentine’s Day outfit ideas!

Honestly, at this stage in my life, getting take out, having a hot bath, and going to bed early is my night of choice! #lit 😉
