date night outfit ideas: valentine's day!



Valentine’s Day is just a few weeks away and Michael and I just started talking about what we’re going to do! I’m not sure if you and your man have plans or not…but today I wanted to share lots of Valentine’s Day outfit ideas with you guys! I’m sharing tons of ideas from a casual night in, cooking dinner at home…to a trendy dinner out! When I wanted to round up outfit ideas for y’all, Nordstrom of course was my go-to in finding outfit inspo. I love that they have such a wide variety of price points (lots of the items I’m sharing with you guys today are under $50), and of course, free shipping and free returns always makes shopping easier!


I’m not sure what the weather is like where you’re at but a sweater dress similar to this one is a great Valentine’s Day date night option! If it’s fairly warm you could wear it like I did here with a pair of booties, or you could easily pair this with tights / leggings if you live somewhere colder! I’ve also worn this same dress with OTK boots and love how that looks! I’m wearing a small in this dress for size reference, and this dress is a really similar option!

I rounded up tons of other Valentine’s Day date night options for you guys in the collage below!

Let’s put outfits together

  1. This body suit is a GREAT date night option! It’s sexy + flattering but still very understated / doesn’t look like you tried too hard haha. And you can’t beat the price for $39!
  2. You can’t go wrong with a black body con dress for date night and this one is under $50!
  3. An easy date night outfit (slash my go-to): pair a drapey cami like this with a pair of coated black skinny jeans. Simple yet stunning, and both of these are under $50!
  4. Go for an all black outfit with a pair of leopard heels for a sleek yet stunning date night look! These ankle strap heels are my GO-TO for weddings, date nights etc! I have them in multiple colors and think they are so classic and comfortable for a heel!
  5. I LOVE this tie neck, sheer blouse! One of those tops you could wear for date night or to the office, tucked into a high waisted black pant. Really classic but still very feminine and romantic for date night!

Thanks for reading!
