Our Favorite Date Night Dresses, Whether You’re Anti or Pro Valentine’s Day

Some like to put the va-va-voom in Valentine’s Day dressing. Others skip the cleavage and cutouts to sit in their sweats on the sofa. Then there’s the practical middle ground: those neither so hopelessly or apathetically romantic. They want a dress that they’ll definitely wear again, regardless of if they ever see that date (or another) again.

For dresses that do triple duty (date night and girls’ night and work day), we’ve selected some sweet numbers that can be flirty, fun and get the job done. Whether you have plans on February 14 or not, you’ll find an occasion to wear these lovely looks.
