Valentine's Day Outfits That Are Perfect For Any Date
1/4Romantic Dinner For Two
To some, a romantic candle lit dinner for two and a movie may be cliché, but there’s a reason why this traditional date has been everyone’s go-to for years. You get to dress up, enjoy a great meal and even greater company—what’s not to like? Since the night’s itinerary is more or less planned, now you’ve only got to concentrate on the next most important thing: the perfect date night look. This means pulling out that special occasion frock or sky-high heels that you’ve been waiting to break out.
This year for Valentine’s Day you’ve decided firmly that you’re going to stay in. And you mean stay in. We’re talking about running a slow long bath, aromatherapy in the air, a plate of chocolate dipped strawberries, followed by slipping into some seriously sexy underwear. Don’t be afraid to go all out with your choice of lingerie because isn't this the perfect time for some romance?
Single and ready to mingle? Don’t fret for this is your night too. Galentine’s Day occurs every year on Feb 13, and it’s exactly like Valentine’s Day, only instead of celebrating the love you have with your significant other, celebrate the platonic love you have with your best girlfriends instead. Initially created by Leslie Knope, Amy Poehler’s fictional character on Parks and Recreation in 2010, the day has now taken a life of its own with many women across the globe choosing it as a time to leave their husbands and boyfriends at home and celebrate the ladies they love with a nice brunch. Because, ovaries before brovaries right?

4/4Netflix and Chill
So, you’re someone who just doesn’t see the point of going to a fancy dinner in attendance of a million other loved-up couples. It’s ok, we get it. Sometimes a relaxing night in feels much better than spending two hours getting dressed for a socially constructed holiday. If your idea of a perfect Valentine’s Day is to snuggle in under the comforters with your other half watching Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes (romantic, we know, and we have more spine-tingling suggestions from Netflix here), you’ll want the right gear to go along with this date. This means anything warm, snuggly and comfortable.
