What to wear on Valentine’s Day 2020

Whether you’re planning a low-key evening or heading out for a romantic meal, we’ve got your Valentine’s Day wardrobe covered.

Updated

The most romantic time of year is almost upon us and there’s plenty to consider.

Although choosing the perfect card and/or present will be high on your to-do list, there’s another important thing to consider: your outfit.

You’ll no doubt want to dress to impress, but that doesn’t necessarily mean going all out. A casual but eye-catching ensemble could be a better choice depending on what you have planned for 14 February.

Here’s our guide to the top Valentine’s Day fashion choices out there, as well as where to find them.

Day dresses

A versatile day dress is a great Valentine’s Day outfit, particularly if you’re heading out straight after work or planning a low-key evening. A flattering maxi dress, casual midi dress or pretty shift dress are all good selections. Although it’s still chilly outside, Valentine’s Day is a great excuse to wear something bright and memorable, so opt for a shade of red, or even a dark pink or purple tone to ensure you stand out.

Jeans and a nice top

While a nice dress is always a good date night option, pairing jeans with a dressy top can make for an equally stylish look that’s both comfortable and warm, particularly if you have a casual night planned. Why not go for dark jeans with a sequin top to add a touch of sparkle to your evening? A red velvet top is also an alternative if sequins aren’t your thing. Wear tights under your jeans if you’re feeling the chill.

Day shoes

You can’t beat a pair of block heels or slingbacks for hassle-free daytime wear, especially if you’re likely to be on your feet all day. Mid-heel court shoes are also a good choice. Both stylish and comfortable, they’re a great accompaniment to most outfits, whether you’re dressing up or dressing down. The wrong pair of shoes can totally ruin an ensemble, so try to plan ahead to avoid any last-minute disasters.

Date night dresses

A stylish bodycon dress is ideal if you’re keen to show off your figure on Valentine’s Day. You can either opt for a classic black style, a bold shade such as burgundy, or even a colour block number. If bodycon isn’t for you, a bardot dress may be more suitable, putting the spotlight firmly on your shoulders. Whatever length you choose, a bardot dress will frame your silhouette perfectly.

Night shoes

Once you’ve got your dress sorted, you’ll need the perfect shoes to complement your outfit. A timeless pair of court shoes will work well with most dresses. A daring leopard print style will definitely get you noticed, but a classic black pair will also make an impact. If you really want to dress for the occasion, strappy red heels should be top of your list.

Accessories

The right accessories can set off any outfit, so why not go for Valentine’s Day-inspired additions? A heart-shaped bag is a cute way of jazzing up your look while statement earrings will add some pop to your outfit. Go for heart-shaped earrings or bright gemstones for maximum effect. If you want to add a playful touch, pick up a cute slogan necklace to wear on the night.

For underneath it all

Why not treat yourself (and your loved one) to some racy Valentine’s Day lingerie? Choose something that’s both sexy and comfortable if you’re likely to be in it for much of the day. But if you’re planning on squeezing in a quick change before the evening is out, a sexy ensemble will certainly set pulses racing. Whether you go for a lovely lace bodysuit or a classic satin babydoll set, well-chosen lingerie is sure to bring about the perfect end to your evening.
