Date Night Outfit Ideas: Valentine’s Day Edition

Whether your plans call for an intimate dinner with a significant other, a fun night with friends, or a date night at a glam event, the following outfits aim at satisfying the dress code for a night out. These can be easily dressed up or down depending on the venue and have been categorized by personal style (i.e., minimalist, boho, romantic, etc.). Most importantly, just because it is Valentine’s Day does not mean red has to be the predominant color. Let’s break some rules!

Outfit 1: The Minimalist

For the minimalist at heart, simplicity is key. This one-shoulder silhouette adds just enough oomph without cluttering the look. Maintaining a monochromatic color palette is part of minimalist fashion style, but this does not signify the entire outfit must contain the same shade of a specific color. Play with hues that are within the same color family, such as blush, nude, and gold. Click here to shop this outfit

Outfit 2: The Boho Princess

Bohemian style is all about flowy fabrics, layers of accessories, and combining textures. This sexy maxi dress portrays elegance with its long sleeves and soft fabric. It can also be easily dressed up or down. It is paired with ankle stiletto boots for an edgy bohemian touch. The look is finished by adding layered coin and charm necklaces, statement gold rings, gold hoops, and a couple rose gold bobby pins for accent. A nude crossbody is an ideal handbag choice for an evening outfit. I always pair bohemian style with anything that drapes, hangs, or flows, so a crossbody would be better suited than a clutch. However, a slouchy clutch is also a formidable option. Click here to shop this outfit

Outfit 3: The One with Edge

An edgy fashion style involves incorporating unconventional elements to an ensemble and is often depicted with the hardening of an outfit by adding heavy materials and fabrics, such as metals and leather. A red, satin dress cinched at the waist by a black leather belt with a gold accent buckle is a juxtaposition in itself. The feminine and delicate features of a satin slip dress juxtaposes the hard materials of the leather and buckle on the belt. Also, by combining a feminine dress with boots instead of pumps or heeled sandals is unexpected. Finish the look with a metal  minaudière and lion themed earrings for a quirky touch. Click here to shop this outfit

Outfit 4: The Traditionalist

Those who favor a traditional style of fashion gravitate toward more classic cuts and fabrics, as well as neutrals. A traditional style does not step outside the expected fashion norms. Wide-legged trousers are paired with a simple lace cami for a sophisticated and delicate ensemble. A pair of black pumps and a burgundy crossbody accessorize the look. Just because a traditional style favors neutrals does not mean that other colors are prohibited. The red hue of the handbag adds a pop of color to the outfit. Delicate and minimal jewelry is used, typically personalized pieces. Click here to shop this outfit
