Valentine’s Day is a lot like New Year’s Eve there’s pressure to find something to do and someone special to do it with. But the truth is, this holiday shouldn’t make you sweat. Instead, we like to think of it as an excuse to give yourself a little self-love and celebrate all the relationships that lift you up day after day. So this year, in an attempt to alleviate added stress about what to wear, we’ve gathered some oh-so-cute outfit ideas, no matter how you’re celebrating. Wondering what to wear for a romantic Valentine’s Day dinner? Keep it classy in a flattering dress (with plus-size options), a statement top, or a flirty skirt. If you prefer to play it casual this winter, dress up your jeans and leather leggings with a detailed top and jewelry. Want to show your holiday spirit at work? Try accessories with a heart motif. And for those who may want to skip the usual pink and red hues, it’s totally okay to wear black (or any color you wish).
Whether you’re planning a date night, relaxing with your galentines, or simply plopping yourself on the couch to watch a Valentine’s Day movie, get inspired by these festive Valentine’s Day outfit ideas.
