Valentine’s Day outfit ideas

Becca Donaldson ·



Love is most definitely in the air as Valentine’s Day is right around the corne. We’re predicting that it’s going to be a big one this year, after a bit of a romantic washout in 2021 thanks to Covid restrictions. It’ll be a chance to reconnect, up the love-factor, and simply a chance to celebrate – with or without a significant other.

However, if you want to wow your partner on 14th February with a Valentine’s outfit, then you’ve come to the right place. Our Reliked Influencer Shop is packed with pre-loved pieces to help you find the perfect Valentine’s date night outfit ahead of the most romantic day of the year. By choosing pre-loved, you can ensure that you achieve a wonderful look whilst leaving plenty in the budget left for tokens of love and whatever entertainment you choose.

Red is the colour of love

If your motto is ‘go big or go home’ then we salute you! Jump right into Valentine’s Day with a sexy red dress and unleash your inner Jessica Rabbit. It’s classic yet contemporary and will certainly say you mean business when it comes to romance.

We’ve gathered together a huge collection of red dresses in all styles that are guaranteed to get you noticed by your partner. Our influencers are sharing their absolute best pre-owned red dresses from slinky mini-dresses to flowing scarlet maxi-dresses to match your style. There’s definitely something for everyone.

Our red Valentine’s Day date outfits currently include items from model and presenter Vogue Williams, Love Islander Yewande Biala and Made In Chelsea star Tiffany Watson. There’s plenty to make you feel inspired and plenty of choice.



Add a touch of luxury…

If you and your significant other are treating yourself to a Valentine’s date in an expensive restaurant, you’ll need an outfit that oozes style and luxury. Don’t you just want to stand out as the Valentine’s date to be with?!

A designer dress is a timeless investment, as it will be perfect for your romantic dinner date and can be worn time and time again without ever going out of style. Shop pre-owned designer dresses from Karen Millen, Olivia Rubin, Nina Ricci and many more.

Mini, midi and maxi dresses

Show off perfect pins with a simple, yet sexy mini dress. We recommend keeping your accessories to the minimum if you’re wearing a mini dress and letting your legs do the talking!

Top mini-dress tip: wear low-topped shoes to make your legs appear even longer! Grab your confidence and show it off.

For a flattering Valentine’s dress, we love a classic midi dress. There are endless ways to wear it depending on your style and where you’re going for your date. It’ll be versatile and come out time and again. Team with a denim jacket and white trainers for a lunch in the city, work it with a chunky cardigan and knee-high boots for a romantic walk in the country, or give it a polished edge with kitten heels and a blazer for a dinner date. This is really a great option if you’re being surprised on Valentine’s Day and don’t know what you’ll be getting up to!

Slip into something a little more slinky with a floor length maxi dress in lace, satin, or velvet and ooze Hollywood glamour. Add a statement necklace and a plunging neckline to turn up the heat on your Valentine’s dinner date. Or choose a boho-inspired flowing floor length dress and show your date that you are a fun-loving free spirit.



Ditch the dress

Dresses not your thing? Jumpsuits are a chic alternative to a dress that adds structure and glamour to all body shapes. If dresses don’t float your boat then a jumpsuit can come to the rescue and leave you feeling more comfortable but still absolutely stunning.

Whether you opt for a sexy tuxedo style jumpsuit, or a sequin-embellished version that will grab the attention of your partner, you can be assured that you’ll stand out from the crowd in sassy style.

Plus, for the practically-minded amongst us, a jumpsuit can be teamed with a simple belted trench coat to complete the look – and keep out the cold! Check out our influencers' pick of the best Valentine’s Day jumpsuits.



Valentine’s Day lingerie

On 14th February, what you are wearing under your Valentine’s Day outfit is just as important as the outfit itself! It’s one of those times when outfit planning needs to think about every element! A sexy corset will enhance your body shape, while pretty lingerie hints at a promise of romance when hidden under a cute mini-dress.

Steal the stars’ style with luxury lingerie from fashion blogger Gemma Talbot, and Insta-sensation Laura Badura, to guarantee a sizzling end to the evening! We’ve got plenty of lingerie for you to choose from to elevate your entire outfit to the next level.



Complete your look with killer heels 

If you’ve lived in comfy trainers or Ugg boots throughout the winter (and understandably so), Valentine’s Day provides the perfect excuse to treat yourself to a pedicure and a pair of killer heels to add the finishing touches to your romantic outfit.

Our influencers have shared some incredible deals on show stopping heels from designer brands including Kurt Gieger, Francesco Russo and Zara. Even if you’re not going down the dress route, killer heels can transform your outfit.



Netflix and chill…

Thanks to the pandemic, staying in has become the new going out, so if you plan to relax with a takeaway and a romantic movie with your partner, check out our range of comfy leisurewear which is perfect for snuggling on the sofa!

Whatever your plans for Valentine’s Day may be, we’ve got the best fashion inspiration from our collection of Reliked influencers to ensure you have a red-hot time on 14th February!

PS – Remember that you don’t need a date to have an amazing Valentine’s Day. We’re also big supporters of getting our girly tribe together, putting on our glad-rags and enjoying a few glasses of wine to celebrate GALentine’s Day instead!
