What to Wear on Valentine’s Day: 10 Pretty Night-Out Outfits
It is February, it is snowing in most places of the world and it is just less than a week before Valentine’s Day. It is the day that some hate to love, some love to hate and others just plain love and show it in abundance with all sorts of romantic dates and surprises. We see couples getting closer to one another, holding hands day in and day out, looking deep into each other’s eyes and whispering sweet nothings in each other’s ears while enjoying the moments that truly make the relationship explode like fireworks. They might be watching some fireworks as well, depending on where they decided to spend the weekend.
While some of us prefer a getaway to some new adventure together, others are hard-pressed to leave their beds, making a fire and putting on some hot chocolate while eating a gorgeous heart-shaped chocolate cake instead. As for those who love the candlelight dinner or want to party the weekend away, they are all wardrobe conscious, looking for the best in designs and cuts to look as dashing as possible. After all, we want our partners to fall head over heels in love with us all over again, no matter how many years of dating, cohabitation or marriage.
Can’t decide what to wear on Valentine’s Day this year? As such, we have compiled a list of our top 10 prettiest night-out outfits for Valentine’s Day for you to choose from!
#1: Culottes Jumpsuit with Strategic Cut-Outs
If you are the sportier type who’d rather not wear a dress or skirt, you will absolutely love the jumpsuit with culottes, especially if it is played up with bows and features an open midriff through the front cut-out. We would go for the high neckline and open shoulders to match the latest in styles, and pair the outfit with strappy ankle banded sandals, hair straightened and with just a touch of contouring and light lipstick. It will give you the best in sporty meets sexy looks that you are going for as you head out with your lover for the night. Buy it at ASOS.com!
#2: Bell Sleeves and Short Hems
A truly gorgeous look for those with a highly feminine feeling looking to seduce their partners, this particular dress is quite perfect. The A-line silhouette lightly defines the waist and falls to the tops of the thighs, the bell sleeves giving the dress a royal treatment, and the cutout in the center, tied with a bow, speaking of sultry innocence and seductiveness all at once. The mandarin collar is interesting and very much in style, while having the zipper on the side gives the dress a more seamless appearance. Personally, we’d add a few inches to the hem to cover up our own curves, but this is beyond lovely for a perfect date night. Buy it at Nasty Gal!
#3: Colorful Printed Maxi Wrap Dresses
If you have been following the latest fashions, you would realize that one of the biggest trends is the wrapped dresses, particularly the maxi wraps. Add lots of color and print to that and you have something truly stylish that looks amazing on near any body shape. Easy flutter sleeves are a favorite to this particular piece, while the V-neckline only adds to its allure. Wear it with your hair loose and with Western-style ankle boots in suede and you have quite the outfit for Valentine’s Day. Buy it at Free People!
#4: White Ruffled Rompers
If you love stark white, pretty ruffles and the concept of rompers, you are in for a treat with this occasion romper that features lots of skin, particularly through that deep plunge neckline. It is great to wear on a warm Valentine’s Day, though we are not so sure it will be good with the current weather. Then again, you can always throw on some suede or velvet thigh-high boots and a scarf around your neck and you will look sexy while also rocking that truly gently sensual look. Buy it at ASOS.com!
#5: Pretty in Pink Short Satin Dress
Have you seen Pretty in Pink? Yeah, who does not love that film? Looking at this dress, you think those same lines with a bit of Barbie on top. At to the face that the back of this short satin dress is crisscross straps, open back otherwise, the seams falling to the hips and elongating the top half of the body and with a gathered skirt featuring a Jersey lining, you find yourself enthralled. It is almost better in black as well, working its way into your closet as a little black dress that we really need to have to show off and wear out when needed. But the pink is quite perfect for Valentine’s Day, especially for the ladies with a bit more of a feminine personality. Buy it at H&M!
#6: Boho Printed Slip
For the ladies with a love for the boho fashions, this dress is just perfect, with its sleeveless nature, plunging lace lined neckline and swinging, sheer slip in a floral dotted jacquard. It is totally 1970s, beautifully Western and perfectly romantic, meaning that it goes very well with Valentine’s Day. Add on knee-length snakeskin boots and some silver jewelry around the neck and on the wrists and you are set to go. Get it from Free People here!
#7: The Little White Dress
Here we go with a “the’ in front because this dress is one of our favorites. It comes in a double layer, the fabric being embroidered lace and splitting into a V opening from the waist down across the center, revealing an equally white embroidered but slightly shorter skirt underneath. It has a hidden zipper in the back and goes perfect with pale pink d’Orsay sandals and golden jewelry. High neck and no sleeves make for a chic and sophisticated look that screams all woman of power with a good hold on her youth. Get it at Revolve Clothing!
#8: Contemporary Date-Night Jumpsuit
We are pretty sure you are still searching for a lovely jumpsuit to wear out. They are very much in style and if you go for the stark white with black trimmings designs, you are set. You can also pick up the cream with black. No difference really, since this contemporary jumpsuit looks positively divine, the pants cropped at the ankles and featuring tiny slits, while the neckline is a very low plunge and the black sash around the waist looks positively delightful. Add some spike heel ankle strapped sandals and you have one really sexy combination. Buy it at Forever 21!
#9: Winnie Bell-Sleeve Dress
Pale pink, translucent and with a short hem, this dress is something that might have once been a nightgown but has instead been turned into outerwear. It is of pink chiffon, which is romantic unto itself, while the short skirts and swinging material make one’s imagination run pretty wild. It has a trapeze silhouette and is partially lines, the bell sleeves and mock neck only adding to its overall appeal. Buy it at Nasty Gal!
#10: The Sweetheart Skater Dress
It goes beyond saying that one of our very favorites and the best fit for Valentine’s Day is indeed the off-the-shoulder skater dress with the sweetheart neckline and mid-thigh hem. It is chic and way too pretty, the piece accentuating the figure and swinging about the legs. It looks great with a windswept look to the hair and paired with golden shoes, a few golden trinkets added to the wrists and ear lobes. Get it at Boohoo!
