Finding a cute date outfit for the middle of February is a struggle, which is what makes Valentine’s Day dressing so difficult. If you want to power through the cold and wear a dress, we’re with you. Just grab a great pair of tights, cute ankle boots, and check out one of these five options. No matter where you’re headed, one of these five dresses should do the trick, or at least provide a little inspiration.
CREPE DRESS WITH FLOUNCES
Get it at H&M for $39.99
Mock-neck dresses can be sexy, too, and festive when they’re bright red. The frills on this red dress are super trendy, and keep the silhouette young and fun. Pair this dress with polka dot tights and flat, black over-the-knee boots for a great daytime date look.
MIIJA RUFFLE-HEM DRESS
Get it at Club Monaco for $129
Don’t be afraid of strappy dresses this Valentine’s Day. Wear one like this underneath a sweater, or layer a turtleneck underneath the dress. Pair it with strappy sandals for a dressy nighttime look, or even skinny jeans if you’re going super casual.
VELVET SWING DRESS
Get it at Gap for $78.99
Not a red person? Go with a dress in a colour that’s still festive, but a little less obvious, like this pretty wine shade. The velvet will add a little warmth if you’re not up for layering, too. Wear a dress like this with patterned or fishnet tights and black patent pumps for a nice combo of textures.
JACQUARD PATCHES DRESS
Get it at Zara for $119
Patterns are great for Valentine’s Day, and they can really perk you up when the weather is dreary. Since this is a floral dress, it’s not so on-the-nose that you’ll feel like a walking Valentine’s Day billboard. Pair it with solid, black tights and black ankle boots, or black skinny jeans for a great daytime look.
KNOT FRONT TUNIC DRESS
Get it at Topshop for $20
Bailing on Valentine’s Day and going clubbing with your friends instead? Get noticed in a dress like this, with its form-fitting silhouette and on-trend cutout details. For a little extra warmth, pair it with opaque tights and lace-up booties.
