Valentine’s Day Looks You’ll Want to Wear All Year Round
What's the point of putting together a great outfit you'll only wear once?
Date February 12, 2019
Sure, Valentine’s Day is a pointless Hallmark holiday that we don’t need to celebrate… but we do still need something great to wear. So whether you have a hot date scheduled or you’re boycotting the roses and rom-coms this year, we’ve rounded up some outfits that’ll feel just right on February 14—and for many a non-romantic occasion after that.
Click through for five outfits devoid of any “one-time wear” guilt, because these timeless pieces can be worn to work, to next week’s lunch date, to a mid-day coffee sesh, and more.
Galentine’s Day Brunch
($58, Oak and Fort)
Whether your crew is single and ready to mingle, or simply opting for a friends-only celebration, we’ve got just the look for you. A simple sweater tucked into classic trousers along with an eye-catching bag will have you feeling sweet on Valentine’s Day and every other day of the year.
($140, Wilfred Free)
A sweater dress with thigh-high boots is an easy recipe for a great dinner look—regardless of whether it’s a romantic date on February 14 or a fun Friday night dinner any week of the year. For a pointed nod to V Day, feel free to throw on an on-theme piece like Tiffany & Co’s heart-shaped crossbody bag.
Thermal Crop 01
There’s more than one way to get your heart rate up on Valentine’s Day. If a fitness class is more your scene, put together a cute outfit with some on-trend athleisure. Like cool sneakers from Naked Wolfe, a long-sleeve crop top and staple Adidas sweatpants. You get a bit of Valentine’s flair with a splash of red, but won’t hesitate wearing this ensemble again to next week’s spin class.
Stretch Poplin Shirt
If a coffee date’s more your speed this year, go for a classic look: a white blouse with your favourite jeans and a great ankle boot. Round off the look with a cozy faux fur jacket that, in a bright shade of red, may nod to all things love on V Day, but is guaranteed to turn heads the rest of the year too.
