Valentine’s Day is one of those hit or miss holidays – some people absolutely love it, while others dread it. In recent years, there’s been a rising trend of celebrating your girlfriends around Valentine’s Day – or Galentine’s Day, as it’s now called – so you don’t have to be married or in a relationship to enjoy the holiday! Whether you have a hot date, you’re kicking it with your girls, or you’re just spending some quality time with yourself, here are some Valentine’s Day outfit ideas!
Valentine’s Day Outfit for Fancy Dinner Out
Since Valentine’s Day sometimes leads into President’s Day weekend (for my US readers), it’s a perfect time for a vacation or staycation. If you’re traveling and need a dressy fancy dinner dress, this one is very warm and forgiving on the body. So go ahead and order the chocolate dessert. You deserve it boo!
If you’re going to be kicking it with the girls and just want a casual but cute outfit, consider wearing an ankara or fun floral print dress in a shift, swing, or a line cut. Those shapes are super flattering and will fit your eggs benedict and red velvet pancakes brunch order!
Netflix & Chill
If you’re taking Jonathan’s advice and staying indoors this Valentine’s Day, bring some festivity into your loungewear with a pair of red leggings and a fun sweatshirt. You’ll be warm and cozy so you can go from couch to fridge (or to phone to order UberEats) without any problems.
Don’t know what to binge watch? My current recommendations include Messiah, The Circle, Grace & Frankie, and Marvelous Mrs. Maisel!
Hitting the Club
Casual Daytime Date
Maybe you have a new Valentine or budding bae, and you’re planning on hanging out during the day to take the pressure off of a fancy or formal dinner date. A pale pink off the shoulder top and comfortable denim is the perfect daytime combo. Travel light with a croc mini bag and geometric heels.
