The past two years have been tough on everyone across the world. Almost overnight, millions of lives were overturned and certain changes had to be adapted in order to preserve everyone’s safety and health. People were stuck in their homes, only coming out to pick up essentials.
Now that it’s 2022, things are finally starting to look up. Restrictions have decreased and people are finally able to enjoy a life that’s pretty close to what it used to be. This includes holidays like Thanksgiving, Christmas, and the all-time favorite of all romantics, Valentine’s Day.
After two years of not celebrating Valentine’s Day, people must be itching to get back into the festivities and dress to impress. If you’re one of those people, we hear you!
Below are 6 Valentine’s date outfit ideas that you can try this coming February 14.
Who says you can’t put on loungewear for date night? When it comes to fashion, it’s perfectly possible to keep things casual and still look cute at the same time. But just because we used “casual” doesn’t mean you put on the first thing you pull out of the closet. You still need to put thought into what you’re wearing and what you’re pairing them with.
For instance, if you’re planning to wear a large sweater, pairing it with a set of Luluelemon leggings is a great idea. Finish it off with one or two accessories and a pair of white sneakers and you’ve got yourself a cute outfit that could win you a movie marathon with your sweetheart.
Keeping things simple is another way you can dress up for date night. After all, minimalist fashion is all the rage nowadays, influenced by a number of eastern countries. If you’re looking for an easy outfit to put together, one outfit we recommend pairing an oversized button-up shirt (choose something monochromatic) with dark-colored lycra bicycle shorts (we recommend going with either black or a dark chocolate brown).
For accessories, a simple gold necklace and a small handbag should be enough. You can wear anything from sneakers to boots for shoes.
Perhaps your idea of a romantic Valentine’s date is spending the evening eating a lovely home-cooked meal. If so, it shouldn’t keep you from spicing things up in the kitchen with a carefully chosen outfit.
Jumpsuits or overalls are great pieces of clothing that can highlight your silhouette and still give you the freedom you need to move around the kitchen. Put on a pair of hoop earrings and a light-colored tee-shirt to complete the look. You can also wear a pair of combat boots or sneakers.
While some people enjoy nights in with their loved ones, others may prefer going to a concert where their favorite band is playing. For these types of events, you don’t need to go all out. After all, you’ll be standing or sitting in a crowd of people. You want to feel as comfortable and free as possible.
Putting on a simple loose tee and a pair of jeans should be good. And if you want to spice things up a little, put on a jacket and a pair of hoop earrings. Shoes can be anything that feels comfortable while you’re standing.
Going on a hike
Picnic dates are the best types of dates, especially when you plan out the venue right. Since picnic dates are normally held outdoors, you want your outfit to be something flexible and loose. A cute Sunday dress paired with simple ballet flats is a combination for picnic dates. However, if dresses aren’t your thing, you can always wear a pair of loose cargo pants with a simple racerback tank and your choice of jacket or fleece shirt.
Elegant and sophisticated
This outfit idea is for those who have chosen the traditional type of Valentine’s date and booked themselves a restaurant reservation. You want to look your best for your date and come off as elegant, sophisticated, and sexy at the same time. A midi sweater dress paired with high-heel boots and a small handbag is a great combination for the cold February night.
If you want to jazz it up a little bit, put on a simple gold bracelet or necklace.
Valentine’s Day is one of the most popular holidays that people across the world really look forward to. Besides giving them the opportunity to show and express their love for their partners, it’s also a day to celebrate the small things in life that makes every relationship so special.
There’s nothing wrong with wanting to look great for your special someone on Valentine’s Day. If you want to spice things up for date night, but don’t exactly have any idea how to do it properly, the six (6) Valentine’s date outfit ideas that we mentioned above are worth trying.
