Considering January felt like the longest month ever, it’s a bit of a shock that Valentine’s Day is just about upon us. Admittedly it’s normally a rather clichéd holiday – all the red roses, obscenely priced dinners, and mushy Instagram posts – but we’ll take any excuse for a celebration. Especially after the pandemic pretty much cancelled all celebrations last year.
Whether your idea of the perfect night looks like a meal delivery service in front of Netflix with your room mate, a date night at one of the most romantic restaurants in London with your partner, or a boozy bottomless brunch with your Galentine’s, you’ll be needing an outfit to match the occasion. Valentine’s Day is the best excuse to get dressed up, so we’ve rounded up 19 Valentine’s Day outfit ideas.
If you plan on surprising your other half by going all out, this 16Arlington dress with feather trims, an asymmetric neckline and a mini length will have you your partner forgetting that you actually have plans. Or opt for pretty pink puff-sleeved top – paired with faux leather trousers and a pair of sparkly heels – for the classic ‘and a nice top’ outfit.
For something a little more comfortable, but still equally as stylish, a cropped pink jumper paired with black leggings is the perfect compromise – as is this luxe knit from Dior’s Cupidon collection. Want to go all-out in red? We’ve found the perfect red blazer, red trousers and a stunning red midi dress for you to steal the show in. If you can’t wear it for Valentine’s Day then when can you, eh?
