Before you discount a classic t-shirt for Valentine’s Day, you can truly rock it. Especially if you’re going for a more casual date, a crewneck tee in a cute pink or bold red color is fun to style on Valentine’s Day. Not to mention you’ll be quite cozy. Pair it with jeans and sneakers, or dress it up with a blazer and booties. If you love the crewneck tee, be sure to check out all of our women’s crewneck tops.
It’s a dress that’s also a sweater. What more do you need this Valentine’s Day? Wear any of our sweater dresses with long knee-high boots. Add statement jewelry like earrings or a pendant necklace. You can layer with a large scarf or shawl and belt your sweater dress to accentuate your natural curves. Wear tights with a fun texture or design. Breathable tights will keep your legs cool while you stay cozy.
Everyone loves that extra snuggly feeling you get when you wear high rise jeans. The trick to styling high rise jeans is to wear a tucked-in top to show off the fact that these are actually high rise jeans. Any style top will do. From plaid shirts to t-shirts, anything goes with high rise jeans, depending on how formal or casual you want to be. High rise jeans also pair well with crop tops if you’d like to show just a bit of midriff.
If you’re looking for options besides jeans, try wide leg pants. Try a matching blazer, crop top, and wide leg pants all in the same color for a monochromatic look. Wear a plain oxford tucked into a pair of wide leg pants in a bright color or with a pattern such as florals or stripes. Put on a turtleneck and vest to wear with your wide leg pants. Sweater vests will give you a chic city vibe with your wide leg pants.
A long black winter coat isn’t just a cute Valentine’s day outerwear choice. It’s also a winter essential. Even if you’re not on the taller side, petite ladies can rock long black coats too. Wear your long black coat with a gray sweater and suede ankle boots. Go for a long black wool coat, white sweatshirt, and straight leg jeans if you prefer a relaxed vibe. If you’re having brunch or an early afternoon date, try a striped tee and skinny jeans with your long black coat.
If you live in a climate where you can’t exactly relate to frigid winter weather, then wear any of our maxi dresses for women on Valentine’s Day. Even if you do live in a colder climate, a maxi dress is still a great dress to wear for winter and can layer with stockings or tights. For a casual look, wear your maxi dress with street-style sneakers. You’ll be fashionable and comfortable. Layer your maxi dress with a denim jacket. If you want to accentuate your natural curves while adding a fun accessory, put a belt around your waist with the maxi dress.
Don’t dismiss the button down as an option for only the boardroom. If you’re headed straight from the office to your Valentine’s Day, a button down can actually be a dressy option. Even if you’re not coming from a meeting, you can wear a button down with the first one or two buttons unbuttoned and roll up the sleeves to make it a bit more casual. Pair the button down with a pencil skirt or skinny jeans.
The cashmere cardigan is everyone’s favorite sweater for a reason. Wear it buttoned up, or wear it long and oversized as a dress and belt it. Wear an open cashmere cardigan as an additional cozy layer. A gray cashmere cardigan with skinny jeans and high heels is an easy, cozy, and stylish classic. The cashmere cardigan is the perfect choice to wear at the office and transition to your after work Valentine’s Day date. It’s just a touch more formal compared to the knit cardigan.
With any of these wardrobe staples, you’re sure to be both cozy and stylish during your Valentine’s Day date. We’re sure your date will think you look just as lovely as we do!
