If your Valentine’s Day involves red wine, dark chocolate, and a fancy lil outfit, you have all the makings of a wonderful evening. And thankfully, the days of Zoom dates are in the rearview mirror, but that means you have the new task of narrowing down your ensemble for a perfect head-to-toe look.

Whether you’re going for a cozy, festive vibe for a relaxing night of face masks and Uber Eats, or are prepping for a romantic rooftop dinner with your significant other, you’ll need a quality ’fit: something kitschy, but not kiddie; saucy, but not tacky; and relaxed, but still put-together. Even for a fashion editor, it’s a tough balance to strike.

So to help put together your Valentine’s Day look with ease, I’ve gathered 15 options, ranging from comfy and understated to TikTok-worthy glamorous. Date or no date, you deserve a look that’ll make you feel all the love — self-love included.

These looks will hit the mark, featuring Barbie pink, ruffles and satin, mini dresses, and cozy cardigans. Keep scrolling for the best date outfit options this Valentine's Day.


This blush lace number is both a great standalone and layering piece. Add it to your cart, then pair it with neutral pieces already in your closet.


For a look that’s romantic and on-theme, this rose-printed chiffon dress is a solid contender.


Black and white is a fail-safe date-night combo, even on a holiday known for brights. Play with touchable textures, like satin and feathers, to add a soft element to the posh look.


This dress is perfect for a Galentine’s Day brunch or a paint n’ sip with your partner. With its Bridergton-era puff sleeves, this pretty tulle dress feels wonderfully excessive.


Just imagine this spicy, curve-hugging dress paired with a matching crimson lip. Need I say more?


Weird girls, your time is now. Layer prints, colors, and silhouettes for a whimsical, funky take on the holiday.


Sure, this isn’t technically an outfit, but at the same time, it kind of is? Pair this sultry velour bustier with loose-fit jeans and pumps for dinner, then ditch all of that once you get home.


If you’re the type who likes to dress on the nose, this heart print coat is your best bet. Wear a pink mini underneath to complete an all-out look.


Winter whites, anyone? Pair your favorite shades of cream with a ’90s-inspired, pink-hued satin top for a sexy-sweet vibe.


A nap-style dress is perfect for almost any occasion. Pair it with sneakers or pumps.


Mesh tops are super versatile. You can dress them up with a skirt, or dress them down with your favorite denim. This floral style feels edgy-cool for a hyper-femme holiday.


If you’re planning for a night-in V Day, opt for comfortable loungewear with heart prints.


For another night-in idea, lounge at home while feeling your best in this nearly ankle-length dress, a sister design of TikTok’s viral Skims dress. Cue: Doja Cat’s “Woman.”


Valentine’s Day doesn’t necessarily require all things pink and saccharine. Consider adding some edge to your look with a statement pair of red pants, which could be worn with a graphic tee or black bodysuit.


Now is the 100% time to flirt, and sporting this look-at-me fringe number with a peek-a-boo midriff could only help.
