15 Valentine’s Day Outfit Ideas

Happy Friday, friends! Cheers to the weekend! Do you guys do anything festive for Valentine’s Day? We don’t do gifts, but we always go out to dinner. I had an outfit in mind that I was planning to wear for our dinner tomorrow night (yes, we’re celebrating early) and I wanted to shoot it for this post, but the jacket I want to wear hasn’t arrived yet so I decided to do a roundup of Valentine’s Day outfit ideas instead. This is probably more helpful anyway, right?

I’m really hoping my jacket comes today or tomorrow, but if not, I have a backup plan. Unfortunately it’s supposed to be a rainy few days, and the shoes I want to wear are a pale blush suede, so I may have to drop back and punt — metaphorically speaking of course. Trust me, no one wants to be around if I’m wielding a football. That’s a dangerous situation. #nosportsability

I spent a while yesterday afternoon, perusing my archives to come up with these looks. You’ll soon see how far my husband’s photography skills have come, haha! Whether you’re going out to dinner with your honey, enjoying a Galentine’s Day celebration with your besties, or volunteering in your kids’ classroom, there’s an idea in here for everyone.

Valentine’s Day Outfit Inspiration

If your plans are on the more casual side, you can’t go wrong with a black sweater and your favorite blue jeans, as far as I’m concerned. These chestnut OTK boots turn it up a notch, but you can wear pretty much any shoe with this — leopard flats or pumps, red pumps or booties, blush ballet flats… anything goes with black and denim. I added a leopard clutch for a little sass and I also wore my read peacoat. You can see the more of this look in THIS POST.

This outfit is from Christmastime, but red and black with a pop of leopard certainly works for Valentine’s Day too. You can see more of this look in THIS POST.

This is more of a cozy, casual look, but I love the combination of silver and pale pink with white jeans. See more of this look in THIS POST.

For a causal V-Day celebration, this graphic tee (or one like it with a pop of red or pink) with black jeans and a denim jacket is different but still festive. The red bag makes it. You can see more of this look in THIS POST.

This outfit is slightly dressier but still practical. Even without the grey coat and red scarf, it’s a classic look that will work for a variety of occasions. See more of this look in THIS POST.

You can’t go wrong with bright pink and white for Valentine’s Day. The grey booties tone it down, but you could do taupe or nude or white pumps if you wanted to dress it up. See more of this look in THIS POST.

A lighter pink sweater gives a nod to the holiday without being too predictable. You can see more of this look in THIS POST.

I have several LBD outfits in this roundup. This one is comfortable because it’s a sweater dress. The leopard bag is a nice way to add pattern and texture, but a red bag would also be a nice addition to this outfit for a Valentine’s Day event. See more of this look in THIS POST.

I love the idea of pink velvet pants and an ivory sweater for Valentine’s Day. It’s more subtle than red, but still festive. If you live in a warmer climate, I realize you may want a lighter look, but here in the northeast, it is usually verrrry cold on Valentine’s Day so I often end up in a cozy sweater with jeans or pants and some type of heeled boot. See more of this look in THIS POST.

Here’s more of a classic LBD. I don’t love the fit of this dress (I think I passed it on after seeing these pictures, lol!!!) but I like the combination of LBD + leopard pumps + red bag. See more of this look in THIS POST.

For a super casual look, throw a chunky red sweater on with jeans and black boots. This is good for those school classroom parties and casual lunches with friends. See more of this look in THIS POST.

And here’s one more LBD outfit idea. While pumps always work with a LBD, these shoes make it more fun and date night-ish. Also the animal print bag is a fun touch. You can see more of this look in THIS POST.

And another casual look for those of us in cold climates — black sweater, jeans, and red or burgundy boots (or loafers.) You can see more of this look in THIS POST.

I also like the look of a champagne or silver sweater with white jeans and nude pumps. It’s always festive, and who says you have to wear red or pink on Valentine’s Day? You can see more of this look in THIS POST.

And yet another take on the red/white/denim/leopard color combo. I obviously like this outfit formula quite a lot! Throw on a red blazer with a white tee, jeans, and leopard pumps. You can see more of this look in THIS POST.

And finally, I showed this in a NYE outfit roundup, but it’s also a nice combo for Valentine’s Day. You can dress it up by swapping out the lace-up flats for pumps. See more in THIS POST.

I hope this roundup of Valentine’s Day outfit ideas was helpful. Even if you’re a bit of a Scrooge when it comes to Hallmark holidays, these outfits might inspire some of your late winter wardrobe planning for whatever you have coming up!
