What are some sexy and chic outfit ideas for a Valentine's Day date?

  • 1 of 14

    We are smitten with a holiday that is completely dedicated to love, and think your Valentine’s Day outfit should be completely lovable too. So whether your plans involve a date with your long-time partner or a group dinner with your fellow single ladies, play up your romantic side with a glamorous ensemble evocative of a ‘40s screen siren. Here are four romantic looks that are guaranteed to create the perfect love story.

    Must-Try Look #1: A Touch Of Red

    A splash of red can be just the right amount of color for an otherwise softer palette. A punchy red lipstick, a sharp red heel, or a bold red clutch feels festive, but not overwhelming.

    Must-Try Look #1: A Touch Of Red

    While the hue is striking paired with an all-black outfit, it can be totally unexpected teamed with a softer palette of creams and faded florals.

    Must-Try Look #2: The LBD

    A Valentine’s Day dinner date is the perfect time to bring out your sexy little black dress. Try to balance your look so that it’s equal parts demure (a fuller skirt or rounded collar) and daring (a short hem or nipped-in waist).

    Must-Try Look #2: The LBD

    To add a touch of whimsy, throw on a printed heel, perhaps in a floral, polka dot, or stripe.

    Must-Try Look #2: The LBD

    Adding a bit of rich texture can immediately make your outfit feel luxe. A velvet pant, skirt, cape, or top pairs easily with your basics, such as jeans, tees, and trousers. Try a rich palette of dark red, navy, black, or softer hues like cream or peach.

    Must-Try Look # 4: A Slip Dress

    An updated version of the ‘90s slip dress trend is absolutely ideal for Valentine's Day. Try wearing a knee length or longer slip dress with a barely-there heel, and finish with a soft, chunky cardigan.
