If you’re planning on spending the day with your partner, going out with your friends or deciding to spend the day relaxing on the sofa, Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to dress up, get yourself a new outfit and show yourself some love.
In this post, I’ll be sharing 14 outfits for the 14th of February, 14 different outfit options suitable for all types of dates. So if you’re looking to be dressed up to the nines or want a chilled trendy look for the day, there’s an outfit for you.
1. Red Glitter Dress
Ideal for: That special date with your loved one
This dress screams Valentine’s, everything from the deep luxurious red to the glitter and feathers. This is the perfect outfit if you’re looking to go all out to celebrate with your partner; maybe you’re going to a fancy restaurant or a formal occasion; either way, this is the perfect outfit.
You can pair this gorgeous dress with gold accessories for an elegant, luxurious look with a pair of strappy gold heels and a gold clutch bag. You could style it like in the photo with a pair of deep red heels and a red feather handbag to keep the whole outfit matching.
2. White Jumpsuit
Ideal for: A romantic dinner with your partner
This outfit is a personal favourite of mine; the all-white has a very classy, elegant look that is perfect for a dinner or a nice evening in the city. A monochromatic look is sleek and sophisticated, a great option if you’re not sure what you’re doing but are looking for a dressy outfit.
The jumpsuit and long white coat are great options, especially for the colder weather; if you’re outside or travelling for Valentine’s, this is a nice way of looking fashionable and practical. Keeping it all the same colour with the accessories is a nice detail for this chic, modest look.
3. Black Jumper and Leather Skirt
Ideal for: A cinema and dinner date
Not every Valentine’s Day outfit needs to be filled with colours and patterns; if you prefer a simpler monochrome outfit, this is more suitable for you. If you’re celebrating with a more casual restaurant date or a day out, this outfit is great. It’s a nice balance of casual and cute, the leather skirt and knee-high boots has a more dressy vibe, but the oversized jumper tones it down and creates a nice smart casual look.
This outfit is great for a day-to-night type of look; it’s suitable for multiple occasions, so if you haven’t been given an itinerary of your day, then it is a lovely option. You don’t need many accessories with this type of look; a nice shoulder bag and a simple necklace would complement the outfit without overdoing it and making it too busy.
4. Floral Midi Skirt Co-ord
Ideal for: A Baecation
If you’re going on holiday for Valentine’s this year, you’ll need an outfit that’s perfect for holiday settings and something that’s still on theme for the celebration. This outfit is perfect for both warmer holidays and the cooler weather if you’re going on a city break, it’s a nice in-between outfit with the long sleeves and midi skirt, but it’s a lighter material.
Floral patterns are perfect for both holidays and Valentine’s Day, so this outfit is definitely going to be a winner. This floral co-ord is a statement piece, so you don’t need extravagant accessories; a light pink pair of heels and a matching handbag with gold jewellery would complement this outfit.
5. Red Top and Cargos
Ideal for: Dinner at home
Sometimes date nights at home are just what you need for Valentine’s Day, but just because you’re staying at home doesn’t mean you don’t need to put on a nice outfit. Cargos and a nice top is a great outfit for this type of Valentine’s evening; it’s stylish and put together but still casual and comfortable enough for being chilled at home.
A splash of colour in the outfit, especially red or pink, not only makes the outfit more exciting but also ties in with the whole Valentine’s theme. If you want to make it look more dressy, you can pair it with a nice pair of heels, but if you’re going for a chilled vibe, style this look with a pair of trainers or even your favourite slippers!
6. Grey Blazer Dress
Ideal for: A night at a show
Blazer dresses are always a good option, no matter the occasion. They have such a put-together, sophisticated look, which is lovely for dressed up or formal occasions. This is a nice option if you’re looking for an outfit that looks dressy enough for going out but isn’t too formal. The fit of the blazer is smart and traditional, but the style and detail of it have a grunge, edgy look, which is a unique combination.
Black accessories with this type of blazer dress would look lovely together. Not only will they add to the cool vibe of the outfit, but they’ll keep the outfit on the classy side. A pair of heeled boots dresses up the outfit and takes it from a casual look to a nice evening outfit for dinner. Chunky jewellery would also complement the outfit nicely and adds to the whole grunge look; perfect if you want a cool outfit to wear this year,
7. White Sweatshirt and Red Joggers
Ideal for: A Self-Care Date
Not every Valentine’s needs to be celebrated; sometimes, a nice relaxing evening dedicated to self-care is a great way to spend the day. A night in with a movie, takeaway and a face mask calls for an outfit like this. Just because you’re having a chilled evening doesn’t mean you can’t do it in style.
The red joggers and accents are a perfect little touch of the Valentine’s theme, you don’t need to do too much, but this is a nice detail for the day. The oversized, slouchy style is such an effortless look, but it’s super comfortable, perfect for the type of evening you plan to have.
8. Metallic Skirt Co-ord
Ideal for: Girls Night Out
If you’re planning on a Galentine’s this year, this is the ideal outfit for you. The metallic bodycon style is super trendy this year, and it’s the ideal time for you to try it out; it’s sexy, super flattering to your figure and the perfect look for a girls night out.
With this outfit, you want all the attention and main focus to be on the co-ord, so simple accessories like a black bag and black heels or perspex heels. You don’t need many jewellery pieces for this look as there’s enough detail in the co-ord; a pair of silver studs and simple rings are great pieces to complete the outfit.
9. Pink Top and Cargos
Ideal for: Brunch with the girls
This outfit is a cool, trendy look that is a great option for Valentine’s this year. The bright pink is bold and fun but also super girly, which contrasts nicely with the baggy cargo trend. The cut-out, utility style of the top is such an effortlessly cool look paired with the sleeve gloves; this outfit is a whole vibe.
The matching pink heels and handbag is a nice way of tying the outfit together and creating a unique and fashionable look. This is an ideal outfit for a date with friends, the perfect in-between casual and dressy. So, if you’ve got a brunch or bar date with the girls this Valentine’s day, this outfit is perfect for you.

A little black dress is the one outfit you can always rely on, no matter the occasion or the event. Valentine’s day is a great time to wear a black dress; not only is it one of the easiest, stress-free outfits to put together, but black dresses have such an elegant, effortless look to them it’s always going to be a lovely outfit. If you want to make it an extra special outfit, opt for a satin or silk dress, as they look even more beautiful for special occasions.
For a more classic, sleek look, an all-black outfit is a great way of looking sophisticated, so pairing this dress with black heels and a black handbag with dainty jewellery.

This is also the ideal outfit if you’re not too fond of bright colours and what to go for a more neutral look.
An all-white outfit is sleek and stylish and has a clean aesthetic. Adding a wool maxi coat is a practical piece for the cooler weather that is still very fashionable and fits the look of the outfit well. A nice pair of trainers that’ll be comfortable for your day out, paired with a nice crossbody bag, is a lovely way to complete a dressy everyday look, especially for Valentine’s Day.

This dress is a stunning look for Valentine’s Day. This satin maxi strapless dress is such an elegant and classy look that’s a perfect outfit for a formal, black tie type of event.

Leather is always a good option, no matter the occasion. It’s a good way of creating a statement look without having to do too much or add too many accessories.
