Let’s get stylin’ with some sexy outfit ideas, babes.
Dresses with Ruffles
I don’t care what anyone has to say – nothing says Valentine’s Day quite like ruffles. And that’s why dresses with any amount of ruffle detailing are guaranteed to be a stunner on this (fabulous?) day of love. Here are just a few of our faves.
This Black Shoulder Ruffle Tie Waist Dress is budget-friendly but looks anything but. We love the irresistible off-the-shoulder black ruffle sleeve design that shows off those alluring shoulders beautifully. With a subtle dimpled pattern and a tie around the waist, you create a dazzling silhouette your date will fawn over. Oh, and by the way – there are a lot of color options if black dresses aren’t your thing.
If you’re looking for a ruffle dress that’s a bit more mature and elegant, consider this stunning number. The asymmetrical design is classy and suave, while the body-hugging material shows every inch of your curves majestically. With a pinch of wide ruffle detailing on the bottom, this dress is suited to maximize your silhouette. If you want to complete your night outfits, wear your finest heels with this one, ladies.
Flirty Lace Dresses
Our second go-to for Valentine’s Day date night dresses? Lace, of course. After all, who said lace had to be reserved for after dinner? (Wink, wink). While you might be already planning for a sexy lacy combo for between the sheets, you can still flaunt a lacy number at dinner, too. Here are a couple of choices you won’t want to miss.
If you want a dress that’s almost as sexy to be worn as intricate lace sleepwear, you’ll love this Red Hot Lacy Piece. This sheer lace dress is a lingerie-inspired lace number that flaunts a gorgeous lace pattern from top to bottom. Hitting just above the knee, it’s a dress that shows off those silky smooth legs (in case you forgot – make sure to shave before the big day, gal pals).
For those that prefer their look to be a little less flashy, consider this Lovely Lace Dress. This coquettish maxi dress is designed with a v-neck that allows your goodies to play peek-a-boo at the dinner table. The lacy, flowy lower half comes with an overlapping slip, too, so you can show off some leg whenever you feel like it – or when you’re ready to tease.
Tube Top Dresses
The 90s are calling – they want your tube top dresses back. You know what I have to say to that? Too bad. We’re keeping them. Tube tops may have been all the rage in the 90s and early 2000s, but they’re making a big comeback. Why not break out your fave tube top dresses to surprise your mate?
If you say sayonara to that trend years ago and need a little inspiration, don’t panic, honey. We’ve picked out two tube top dresses you’ll love.
This Tube Top Dress is exactly what you need to steal all the attention on Valentine’s Day. I mean, come on. Glitter? Check. Ruched? Check. Alluring red hue? Absolutely. Is there anything more you could ever ask for in your Valentine’s Day date night dresses? I think not. The best part is this bodycon dress flows down into a mermaid style with a center slit, creating a knockout profile.
If you’re a fan of tulle (and if you’re not, you should be), consider this Charming Tube Top Tulle Dress. (Don’t try to say that ten times in a row. Hello, tongue twister). We love this dress because it has a seductive low-plunge v-neck on top, but the tulle skirt is nothing but playful. The combo is the perfect balance between red-hot and coy.
Okay, ladies, I will let you in on a little secret. Sequins are one of the biggest fashion trends of 2022. So, if nothing else, you will at least look trendy on Valentine’s Day. Date night on Valentine’s Day is overrated anyway, right? I say it’s the perfect time for a girl’s night. Whether or not you’ve got a beau for the big day, here are our sequin picks to consider.
Ready to shimmer and shine? (No, I’m not talking about the TV show). This Luxe Sequin Dress is designed for the gal that’s not afraid to show off her body. The body-hugging mini dress comes with a low-cut neckline and an enchanting tulip hem. To add a little extra pizazz, the dress comes with long sleeves that sparkle under the moonlight.
If you just want a pinch of sequin, check out this Adorable Sequin and Mesh Dress. We love the subtle amount of sequin around the chest, while the mesh skirt underneath gives this look some obvious flirty femininity. With a criss-cross back and high-waist, it has plenty of detailing to make it a standout for Valentine’s Day. Would go great with a thin heel!
If you can’t rely on anything else, at least you can rely on velvet. Velvet is great for any time of year, so you can bet it’ll work great with your Valentine’s Day outfits, too. The best part is, the velvet will keep you warm and cozy, which is perfect for those that live in areas where it might be rather chilly on Valentine’s Day. Regardless, here are two sexy outfit ideas to consider.
This Attractive Velvet Dress comes in an a-line construction that many women adore. With a high waist and flared skirt below, it enhances your curves and hides anything you might be trying to get rid of before bikini season. The flare also adds some flirtiness as it bounces with every step. We see this look pairing with a high ponytail and thigh-high boots.
If you prefer something a little more enticing, consider this High-Class, Look-At-Me Velvet Dress. This look screams glamor and is undeniably one of those date night dresses reserved for only the most romantic occasions. This look has everything, from rhinestone detailing to cutouts, V-wire to draping. It’s everything you will ever want and so much more.
With so many Valentine’s Day date night dresses to choose from, you shouldn’t have a problem putting together Valentine’s Day outfit ideas that you adore. Just make sure you don’t forget the accessories. Most of the time, these dresses will pair well with heels, boots, jewelry, and, of course, Valentine’s Day makeup ideas like pinks, reds, and other alluring colors.
