Valentine’s Day is fast approaching, which means one 
thing: it’s time to get your
 date-night look down pat. Whether you’ve got a hot dinner rendezvous with a new flame or you’re having a laidback picnic with your significant other,
 your outfit inspiration starts here.

DINNER DATE

Valentines's Day Dinner Date Outfit

Valentines’s Day Dinner Date Outfit (L to R): Sueded robe dress $595, Zimmermann; Scallop lace cut-out bra and knickers $61, Topshop; Beaded clutch $69.95, Seed Heritage; Lipstick in Faux $36, Mac Cosmetics; Jade heel $189.95, Diavolina

The classic dinner date is forever a Valentine’s Day staple, whether you’re in a long-term relationship or testing the waters on your latest Tinder pursuit. Striking that balance between sexy and sophisticated is key, and with this deep V-neck, blouson sleeve and gathered frill skirt, this suede silk robe dress from Zimmermann channels old-world glamour and is both pretty and flirty. A killer strappy heel and beaded clutch will finish the look – but don’t forget, what’s underneath counts too, and this slinky cut-out eyelash lace set will get his heart racing!

PICNIC IN THE PARK

Valentine’s Day Picnic Date Outfit (L to R): Saturn Return Earrings Sterling Silver with Herkimer Diamond $320, The Mania Mania; Freddie Ebony sandal $249, Senso Shoes; Round copper flash sunglasses $260, Ray-Ban; Broderie Bandeau Dress $169.95, Witchery; Clementine bag $79.95, Tigerlily

Without the pressure of a fancy dinner and classier than a pub lunch, the good old-fashioned picnic is the perfect laidback Valentine’s Day date idea. Even if the date sucks, at least you got to eat bulk cheese and dip, right? So life isn’t all bad. A pretty sundress is perfect for lounging on the picnic rug with your sweetheart, and this Witchery number offers a sexy twist with a bit of shoulder on display. Statement earrings, lace-up sandals and a knock-out pair of sunnies will ensure you nail the “I just threw this together” vibe.

NETFLIX AND CHILL

If you’re opting for an evening of the infamous Netflix and chill variety, effortless and casual is your game. Rocking up in a pair of heels will probably look like you’re trying too hard, so ripped jeans and Adidas Stan Smiths are your best friend for this Valentine’s Day activity. A pretty bralette under a sheer top will add a degree of intrigue, and this bralette-turned-body harness from Sass & Bide is pretty much the Holy Grail!
