Unlike my New Year’s Eve post, challenging you to ditch the sequin number for another equally festive trend, I am a whole-hearted advocate for the typical outfits that surround one holiday:
It’s an entire day dedicated to my favorite color combination: pink + red!
Below I’ve picked out three outfits for three types of V-Day plans: a Hot Date, Galentine’s Day, and a night at home practicing some serious #SelfCare.
I understand a lot of people are a little more subdued when it comes to this holiday (or their wardrobe in general), so in addition to my favorite pink + red picks, I’ve also detailed three outfits for the above V-Day plans that are subtle but still allow you to celebrate in a mix of polka dots and red rose floral.
Tag me in your Valentine’s Day outfits on Instagram! I want to see what you come up with.
Dress: ASOS. Boots: Isabel Marant via The Real Real (previously styled here, here and here). Trench: Shopbop (previously styled here and here). Brooch: ASOS. Pink Stripe Shirt: Thrifted. Sunnies: Elizabeth and James via Rent the Runway.
White + black polka dot and red rose details to show a hint of romance without being a billboard of love.
Subtle romantic hints with double the polka dot + rose accessories. This look is still celebratory without being too over the top. If you have a fancier date planned, try this embroidered lace rose midi-dress or this sheer polka dot top!

With a holiday dedicated to my favorite color combination, how can I not celebrate to the fullest?!
Honestly, there were so many great options for this look—it was hard to narrow it down! This look is a whole lotta love, but the defined color blocking makes it easier on the eyes. If you have a fancier evening planned, try this red and pink lace embroidered midi dress, or this color blocked pink chiffon number!

Celebrating femininity for a night out with your girls means red leopard, pink feathers, and a cheeky statement clutch. For those heartbroken comrades, treat them to a bento box of gummy candy filled with “plenty of fish in the sea”!
