3 Date-Night Outfits Already in Your Closet


Whether your other half made reservations at your favorite restaurant or you've gathered the girls for drinks, this February 14 is a good excuse to have a bit more fun with your outfit. We're inspired by the romantic feel of the day, but you don't have to buy a whole new outfit to look spectacular.

Take a peek into your closet, get a little creative, and possibly buy a pair of bright red pumps—who doesn't want bright heels?—to put together a pretty and sophisticated look for this holiday. We're guessing you already own a striped tee, white dress or skirt, and of course, a black dress. Below, see how to make the most of these pieces.



1. Necklace, ModCloth, $13 / 2. Sweater, Oasis, $65 / 3. Jeans, H&M, $40 / 4. Flats, Sole Society, $39 / 5. Bag, H&M, $30

Headed to the movies with your best gals? Get comfy with a striped sweater or tee (a fantastic style staple), dark denim, and flats—bonus if they're cheeky leopard print! A pretty little Valentine's accessory, like a simple rose charm necklace in red, may be worth the purchase, or just dig into your jewelry box for a fun pink or red piece.



1. Sweater, Oasis, $39 / 2. Necklace, BaubleBar, $30 / 3. Skirt, Dorothy Perkins, $59 / 4. Clutch, Francesca's, $38 / 5. Tights, Macy's, $14 (similar) / 6. Wedge, Sole Society, $70

Muted, light pastels are super feminine and chic. Pull out that white or cream dress or skirt you save for the summer and pair with burgundy or black tights for a stark contrast. If you have separates like a white skirt and cream sweater, try them together! With practical wedges and a sparkly statement necklace, you're set for a sweet dinner date.



1. Earrings, Sole Society, $30 / 2. Dress, H&M, $35 / 3. Clutch, Nordstrom, $38 / 4. Shoes, ModCloth, $100

A little black dress is a no-brainer for a special event, but paired with bright and punchy red heels (or any colored heels you may have!), it's a winner. A wrap silhouette looks gorgeous on every body type. Pair your LBD with dangling statement earrings, like these flirty and eclectic tassel earrings, and an evening clutch and you're a sight for the night.
