what to wear on Valentine's Day

Not sure what to wear on Valentine’s Day? It may be freezing outside but the day of love is no time for your bulky parka.

Heat things up with these warm yet cute Valentine’s Day outfits instead.

1. A One-and-Done Sweater Dress

When you want to feel cozy but also want to showcase your feminine charm, a sweater dress is just the ticket.

It’s girly, warm, and made to layer.

2. A Romantic Maxi

If you’re not sure what to wear on Valentine’s Day, you can never go wrong with velvet!

This is especially true if you love the look of flowing, diaphanous dresses, but shudder at the thought of wearing breezy chiffon in sub-zero temperatures.

Update this bohemian go-to with a long dress in a heavyweight fabric like velvet.

3. A Flirty Mini + Tights

The forecast may call for record-breaking lows, but that doesn’t mean you can’t wear a high hem.

Just style a mini skirt or short dress with fleece-lined tights to keep your legs protected.

Bonus Tip: Stay on-trend by styling your mini with a pair of over-the-knee boots.

4. A Cardigan Over a Dress

If you don’t have a lot of winter dresses, have no fear.

A summery dress can still work with the right layers added to the mix.

Sweater coats and thick cardigans are smart investments that make switching between seasons a breeze.

5. A Layered Romper or Jumpsuit

The same thing goes for your favorite off-season rompers and jumpsuits when deciding what to wear on Valentine’s Day that’ll keep you stylish and warm.

Style your romper or jumpsuit with heavyweight designs like cardigans, tights, belted blanket scarves, or ponchos for a cozy-cute update.

6. A Faux-Fur Coat + Anything

Put it over your LBD. Wear it with a spaghetti-strap dress.

Seriously… anything goes.

7. A Sweater and Jeans + High Heels

Blue jeans and a soft sweater? Check. A pair of sexy stilettos? Add those, too.

This outfit is a little too slippery for snow and ice, but it’s an excellent option when there’s no risk of falling.

Bonus Tip: Try a versatile sweater that you can wear as a cowl neck outside and an off-the-shoulder statement indoors.

8. Updated Basics

If you’re like me, you have a lot of basics. (Like, a lot of basics.) And while I love my black leggings and everyday tees, I don’t necessarily want to wear them on the most romantic night of the year.

If you have a winter-white sweater and a pair of matching dress pants, then you have yourself a Cupid-approved outfit.

Also, long-sleeved bodysuits are ridiculously sexy and can take your Valentine’s Day look to an understated but super-sultry new level.

Just wear a rich red lipstick and do something special with your hair.

9. Old-Hollywood Glamour

Headed somewhere fancy this Valentine’s Day? (Lucky you!) Make jaws collectively drop by drawing inspiration from Old-Hollywood’s iconic glamour.

Just pair a cocktail dress with a luxe coat, add some sparkly jewelry, and prepare to turn heads.

Bonus Tip: Shaping lingerie is very vintage-chic, and it adds an extra panel of fabric while enhancing your figure.

Now that you have some ideas of what to wear on Valentine’s Day, which do you prefer?
