If you want a date night outfit that feels like a nightgown, this tie waist sweater dress is a winner! I actually bought it for Christmas and ended up re-wearing it again for Galentine’s festivities. It’s super comfy, ultra slimming (gotta love tie waists!), and under $40. It comes in over a dozen colors, too, including a really pretty light pink that’s perfect for spring weddings!

I fell in love with this cozy red stripe colorblock sweater the second I saw it. It’s literally perfect for Valentine’s Day (I mean, it’s pink, red, and white all in one sweater) and looks adorable paired with red Hunter boots! If you love the sweater but aren’t a fan of the red stripe, it also comes in pink stripe and yellow stripe, too.

I mentioned this pom pom sweater in January’s Things I Loved round-up (and featured it in this Galentine’s Day decor post)– and I’m not kidding when I say it’s the cutest sweater ever. Like ever. It’s also super warm, comes in gray, white, and pink, and has fun lantern sleeves!

This pink ribbed jumpsuit feels like pajamas and looks absolutely amazing in person!

These pink Old Navy chinos, which are unfortunately no longer available (I found a similar style from J.Crew Factory, though!), were one of my favorite purchases of 2019. They’re just so darn cute, and I love that you can dress them up with a cami and blazer for date night or down with a white tee and sneakers for a casual girls’ night in!

If you want to go casual this Valentine’s/Galentine’s Day, I love this classic crewneck sweater/button down combo! Jeans might be a little too relaxed for fancier spots, but you could easily swap them for a pencil skirt or white wide-leg pants to posh-up the outfit a little bit!

I own this pleated bow skirt in both pink and red and can’t say enough good things about it. It looks and feels like a $200 Kate Spade skirt and has a $30 price tag. It comes in a handful of cute colors, too, including gold! See it styled for the holidays here.

For the ultimate casual Valentine’s Day date night outfit, I love popping a pink cardigan over a white cami and jeans. It’s relaxed, easy, and festive all in one!

So, which of these Valentine’s Day date night outfit ideas is your favorite? Do you like to go more casual or dress up? I’m more of a dress up kind of girl myself, but let’s be honest– Kyle and I will most likely order stuffed crust pizza from Pizza Hut, drink champagne, and watch Netflix at home again. It’s become our little tradition, which we started to avoid the Valentine’s Day dinner crowd a few years back. Now I genuinely look forward to it every year!

    Everything looks so cute, I honestly can’t pick a favourite. I don’t have any dates on Valentine’s day but I like to wear fun and holiday-themed clothes at work and I wasn’t sure what I was gonna wear but your outfits have definitely inspired me, thanks!
