Ladies’ Top 15 Valentine’s Day Outfit Must-Haves

A Valentine’s Day celebration, at its core, is all about taking a moment to acknowledge the love you have for those special to you, right? That message can get lost in the sea of flowers and chocolates…not that we’re complaining about any of that. So, if you’re planning a special night - going to a fancy restaurant with your significant other, cooking a special dinner at home, or rounding up all your single friends for a fun night out – look the part. It’s a day about love, hopefully some romance, and yes, there’s often a lot of pink and red. We’re not talking about anything too racy or over the top, nothing you can’t wear again. Really, Valentine’s Day is just a great reason to get something that will add a touch of spice, or sweet, to your outfit. And these 15 options will do just that.
Be sure to check out this week’s Clothes & Conversation, too. We found some great gifts for you “Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas, for the Ladies” and for him “Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas, for the Gents” .
Let us know what you think in the comments below and on social media. We’d love to hear how your outfit went over and if you did anything special. Remember, whatever the occasion, we’ve got you covered.

Diane von Furstenberg - New Julian Two Silk Jersey Wrap Dress

Leave it to Diane von Furstenberg to come up with the perfect print for Valentine’s Day. Well, we consider it the perfect print because the soft pink is so subtle, and the style is so versatile, you’ll love how much wear you get out of it throughout the season. It can be hard to find a dress that’s got some Valentine’s Day color, but this is just enough – and since the pattern is grounded in black, it can easily be worn with stockings or tights and a great pair of heels while it’s still cold out. Plus, the wrap style is flattering on everyone. For a special date, we love it with just a great necklace or bracelet. But you can wear a lace cami or a bodysuit under it, too – particularly for work, if you are well endowed. If you’re between sizes, size up to get the most out of the wrap styling. This print also comes in a crewneck version with the same flattering waist tie.

This easy-fitting Rebecca Taylor top is just a dream. The pink is so soft and lady-like, we are truly in love. The double layer creates a sexy neckline that is still demure, and the stitch around the waist creates a flouncy hem that will hide the biggest of Valentine’s Day meals, yet still providing great shape and femininity. Add a simple black blazer or cardigan if you’ll be cold, and a skinny pair of black pants – leather, denim, or ponte. Come spring, you’ll still be wearing this all the time. If you’re size is sold out through the ‘shop-it’ button, try Piperlime.

The strong edge of a black jumpsuit makes for a perfect Valentine’s Day look, whether you’ll be on a date or with friends. This contemporary Ella Moss is our top pick for the occasion because, unlike some jumpsuits, this one looks like a separate top and bottom making it so flattering. The sheer chiffon top has a tank underneath and a shirttail hem that hangs longer in the back, perfectly breaking up the line of the jumpsuit. It’s dressy enough for a romantic dinner, and a perfect replacement to a Little Black Dress in February. You can even add a blazer. We love it with simple black heels – or play up the night and go with red.

Not only is lace everywhere this spring, but it is ideal for Valentine’s Day, isn’t it? In black, it has an edgier feel that is great for a date night or a night out with the girls. And this Equipment blouse combines lace with our other favorite spring trend that is perfect for Valentine’s Day – sheer fabrics. Layer a simple black tank underneath and pair this easier fitting top with anything from dark jeans to a slim pencil skirt or black trousers.

Sure, you probably have a pair (or more) of black trousers, but it’s the bow tie at the paperbag waist that make these MILLY cropped pants a playful, yet still sophisticated option, for a special night out. They really flatter the waist, and the pleating provides some ease for the hips and a beautiful hourglass shape. Tuck any blouse into these pants – go with the pink one shown with them for Valentine’s Day – and any other one all season long. MILLY is a modern fit that is universally flattering for most women. If you are petite, any local tailor can hem them to just above the ankle, which is a length that can work with flats or heels.

We don’t know what won us over first – the color, the easy fit, or the price – but whatever it was, we’re sold. MICHAEL by Michael Kors has a contemporary fit, but this is an easy, loose-fitting tunic and the silky fabric hangs beautifully with your favorite black pants for a night out to celebrate a little love. The bold pop of color will be beautiful with white pants in the warmer months, too.

Nic + Zoe - Twirl Elbow Sleeve Knit Fit & Flare Dress
A Little Black Dress is a fail-safe option for any night out. This Nic+Zoe option dresses up and down effortlessly, especially in this universally flattering ribbed knit. It looks great with or without tights, and the fit-and-flare styling, in sizes XS-XL (regular and petite) is truly slimming on everyone. A beautiful necklace will show off the scoop neckline. It also comes in a sleeveless option if you’re somewhere warm or want to show off those arms.

The right accessories can make any outfit holiday ready. Rose gold has re-emerged in the jewelry world, from engagement rings to costume jewelry, and this Giles & Brother cuff is an instant favorite. It mixes-and-matches with yellow gold and silver, and can be worn with any clothing colors, truly. If you’ll be wearing a ¾ sleeve or something sleeveless (dressy or casual), the weight of this cuff with the rhinestone finish, will be a beautiful finish to your outfit.

Alexis Bittar - Vert d'Eau Tiger-Stripe Open-Drop Lucite Earrings
Alexis Bittar makes amazing lucite jewelry, and this pair has a subtle heart shape that makes them a perfect Valentine’s Day option. We love a nod to the day that isn’t too literal. These can obviously be worn dressed up, and look just as good as a dramatic pop to a more casual outfit. They are beautiful with any of the day’s pinks and reds, yet make a very of-the-moment graphic statement against a black outfit, too. And, of course, they’re a no-brainer with white, so you’ll get plenty of use out of them in the months to come.

This mauve-pink color is pure sophistication, and the black details makes it an effortless combination for any black outfit or shoes. It’s a great pop of color for any neutral, though. Oh, did we mention it’s on sale? Wear this Diane von Furstenberg with everything from jeans to your LBD (Little Black Dress, of course), everywhere. It’s just big enough for all your essentials and your phone so it’s great for a drinks with friends, dinner out, or a cocktail party.

Another piece that works pink in with black, making it easy to tie back to black or any neutral outfit, this Cynthia Vincent scarf is such a pretty finishing touch to a tee and jeans, a simple black dress, or a sexy blazer and trousers. Whether you’re having a casual night or celebrating the day in style, make Valentine’s Day the first time you break out this scarf – it certainly won’t be the last.

We can all use a sexy red shoe. And for those of us who prefer not to wear a red or pink outfit, these Diane von Furstenberg mesh and leather stunners are a flawless pop of color to jeans and a neutral top or an all black outfit. Come spring, they also make a pretty finish to an all white, cream, floral or graphic black/white outfit. (They do come in black, too.)

Prefer a flat? These pale pink flats in luxurious python are a sweet way to go, instead. They look great with straight and wide leg pants, especially a beautiful pair of camel ones. Of course, any neutrals work, and again, it’s an elegant subtle nod to the day that you’ll wear all season long.

If you’re having a night curled up on the couch – with your best friends, significant other, or the kids – these are the best. Each sleepy sheep has a little heart that is just so sweet. The jersey material is so soft and the elastic waist of the pants are pure comfort. They go up to XL, so if your size is sold out through the 'shop it' button, try Nordstrom.
