What to Wear for Any Valentine’s Day Date

You’ve got plans. Even if they’re not the dozen roses, champagne and candlelit-dinner kind—no matter—you’ll still definitely do something on February 14, be it hang with your ladies, workout and then chill out on the couch, or spend time with your spouse and the kiddos. (The babysitter seemed to have no problem getting a date and dinner reservation.)

And looking good will help make you feel amazing about whatever you’re doing on Valentine’s Day. Here are some outfits that you’ll love, even if your love life leaves something to be desired.

The Candi-date

You’re not sure about this one. Keep an open mind but dress for yourself in this Topshop sweatshirt and crepe dress. If things heat up, this frock has a sexy crisscross back that will look downright adorable paired with lace-up ballet flats.

Galentine’s Day

You don’t need a Sig O to celebrate love; you’ve got pals who will totally get your questionable outfit choice. Set the mood for a night of laughter and libations with this darling Tu es mon TRÉSOR two-piece, donned with denim and sneakers to keep it cool.

Spouse Party

One of you actually got around to making a dinner reservation this year. Celebrate your ability to plan by dressing like the adults you are. Pair this fringe hem dress with a jacket and clutch for fine dining—and maybe some dancing. Sleek accessories keep your look elegantly modern with minimal fuss.

Martini with a Tryst

Make your intentions clear with a siren-red lace dress. This wiggly number looks cocktail-ready with a vintage-inspired clutch and cardigan. Block heels keep you steady on your feet until you make it back to the boudoir.

Netflix and Treadmill 

Take care of yourself and catch up on the Academy Award nominees (or episodes of Property Brothers) in comfortable and chic Ivy Park® workout gear that will ensure you don’t feel like a slouch while hanging at home. Because when life gives you lemons, you might as well watch Lemonade. (How was that not nominated?)

Play Date

No sitter, no problem. Your tykes are too cute to leave home on this lovey-dovey day, anyway. Put on an outfit that reminds your true fam of your fun and stylish nature. Mix-and-match prints are all the rage, and this silk georgette blouse is romantic and flattering, especially with a lacy bralette peeking out for once the kids go to bed.
