Not everyone wants to wear red or pink or hearts on Valentine’s Day, and not every Valentine’s Day date involves a candlelit dinner. In fact, most people don’t do these things. The big day for most of them is all about spending time with a special someone, dinner and drinks at a quiet corner, and a walk back home.
Here, we have rounded up many non-clichéd Valentine’s Day outfits for whatever your plans might be, whether you are doing karaoke with friends, meeting a date for the first time, or staying in your apartment.
Dinner and a Movie
For a casual date night, you can still be comfortable without going for the usual slouchy sweater and jeans routine. Try a long-sleeve bodysuit tucked into skinny jeans with ankle boots and a trendy bomber jacket instead. You will surely look good in this.
Maybe you and your partner are going ice skating, or taking a romantic stroll in the park. You can still look cute even if you bundle up. Wear comfortable over the knee boots with a chunky sweater, a wool coat, and a cute hat to finish off the look.
Girls Night Out
Time out with friends could be more fun than time with a date, particularly if you haven’t been dating for a long time. Plan for it with a sexy dress that shows a little skin, strappy heels, and a clutch that won’t weigh you down.
Anything But Red
Who said you must wear red on Valentine’s Day? Avoid this cliché and be someone different this year. You can wear a silk dress with a gorgeous print and a flattering silhouette. Pair it with a black coat and heels, and you have got a high-drama look.
Romantic Dinner at Home
Sometimes dinner at home is the best Valentine’s Day plan. There is nobody to bother you. Privacy guaranteed. You will be comfortable in a sweater-dress, paired with special but minimal accessories to make it still feel like a date.
Meeting Someone from the Internet
Going on a first date on Valentine’s Day is a daring choice, so you might as well wear a daring outfit. For instance, you can try a lace top. It looks sexy. You can adjust the strings as well for how much cleavage you want to show. Wear it with denim flared jeans or culottes and a high heel to impress without overdoing it.
Drinks and Karaoke
A cute little denim dress can be a good choice, whether you are going with your partner or friends. Play up the vintage feel with suede over-the-knee boots and a teddy-bear faux-fur coat.
Netflix and Chill
If you don’t plan on doing much more than watching a movie and eating popcorn with your current flame, try slightly see-through cotton and lace pajamas. You are guaranteed more than a movie on the night.
Super-Fancy Night Out
Part of the fun of planning for dinner at a fancy restaurant or the ballet is deciding what to wear. For an outfit that will easily stun your date, wear a flowy, seductive dress, paired with a bright clutch, drop earrings, and metallic sandals.
