What to Wear on 6 Kinds of Valentine’s Day Dates

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. Maybe you’ll hang with your ladies, work out 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.)

Feel amazing about whatever you’re up to on Valentine’s Day in outfits that you’ll love, even if your love life leaves something to be desired.

Galentine’s Day

You don’t need a Sig O to celebrate love; you’ve got pals who will totally get your outfit choices. Set a chill mood in Off-White’s “Woman” sweater and bleached zipped jeans. A pink shearling coat and sparkly booties dress up this getup for going out. Don’t forget to add some hoops, personalized with your name to showcase your self-love.

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. This silk blouse is romantic and flattering. Paired with some DVF party pants, you’re ready to head out for dinner—and maybe even some dancing with your disco-ready accessories.

The Candi-date

You’re not sure about this one. Keep an open mind but dress for yourself in this satin slipdress and sheath top. Sock booties and star earrings make it no-big-deal, totally cool casual—enough so that you can meet your friends later if this dude is a dud. But if this one has potential, you’re still pretty in pink.

Martini with a Tryst

Make your intentions clear with a siren-red dress. This wiggly number looks cocktail-ready with a colorblock clutch and oversized coat. Gorgeous wrap-around pumps with block zigzag heels keep you steady on your feet until you make it back to the boudoir, where you can reveal a strappy lingerie set.

Netflix and Treadmill

LNDR athletic clothes come in gorgeous colors, high-performance constructions and soft fabrications. It’s enough to make your heart skip a beat, which you can monitor on a sleek Fitbit.

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. Plan your pizza night outfit just right, so that once the kids are in bed you two can have your own playtime.
