Happy February, friends! It’s my favorite month of the year, partly because it’s my birthday month, but also because it’s the month of love! Valentine’s Day and Galentine’s Day are both coming up quick, and I love to celebrate both. Valentine’s day outfit planning is so much fun, and beyond spending time wiht my loved ones, my favorite part of each of these holidays is the outfits.

Valentine's Day Fashion

Red and pink are two of my favorite colors, so go figure I’d be able to dig up quite a few outfits featuring each of these colors. Because I wear it so often, I thought I’d round up my 14 favorite red and pink looks to share with you today for your Valentine’s day fashion inspiration!

And, don’t forget to scroll to the bottom of this post. There’s a fun giveaway for something that will go great with any Valentines Day outfit you have planned!

Galentine's Outfit Ideas

1. Galentine’s Day Brunch Outfit

This first outfit is one that I wore recently to celebrate Galentine’s Day with my gal pals. My friend Sahily hosted us for a beautiful brunch in her home, and we had fun chit chatting over sweet treats, breakfast eats, and mocktails. To see more about her brunch and how to host a colorful Galentine’s party, check out her blog post here!

2. Animal Print Casual Valentine’s Day Outfit

I know not everyone loves pink or red, so I wanted to mix things up for this next outfit idea. For my alternative girls, animal print is a fun way to sneak in some feminine flair! I love this blouse from Scotch and Soda – it’s a little sexy (it’s sheer) but can be worn with a camisole underneath, or not. I paired it with jeans and a coat (because brr, it’s cold here right now!) and my favorite Fossil accessories.


3. Red on Red Valentine’s Date Outfit

Who doesn’t love a good color block outfit?! I sure do, which is why you’ll often see me rocking red on red on red. This outfit combines the beautiful, ruffled Casanova wrap dress from Yumi Kim and a pair of splurge-y earrings from Sachin + Babi. Save on these red booties from Target, which you’ll wear over and over again if you’re a red lover like me. An animal print fur coat ties it all together!

4. Pink and Red Striped Casual Valentine’s Day Outfit

For those that can go coatless, rock a statement sleeved blouse for Valentine’s Day! I borrowed this one from BCBG in my Armoire subscription and I love the pink, red, and navy stripes as a fun nod to the Valentine’s Day holiday. A pair of mom jeans from Mott & Bow and a pink backpack make this look complete (and comfy casual!)



5. Ruffle Valentines Dinner Outfit

Who has dinner plans on Valentine’s Day? While we usually stay in for V-Day, I know most couples enjoy a night on the town. If so, wear a flirty little red dress with ruffles and a pair of bright red heels to match! The best thing about this swing dress shape is that you can eat as much pasta and dessert as you want. ;)



6. Lilac Valentine’s Day Date Outfit

You might recognize this look from my New Year’s brunch with my blogger girls, and you’d be right! I know not everyone loves red or pink, so why not try a pretty lilac or light purple instead? This Madewell coat really makes a statement, and I love the feminine floral of this dress from Eliza J. Pop your essentials into a clutch from Chelsea Yaley and a pair of black tights from Berkshire and you’ll be ready for a Valentine’s Day date!

7. Valentine’s Day Work Outfits Featuring a Red Pantsuit

Want to show your Valentine’s Day spirit at the office? Why not put together a Valentine’s Day work outfit! All you need is a red pantsuit. Ok, ok, I get that might not be practical for everyone, so another great option to spice up your office look is to tie on a red, pink, or colorful neck scarf. Target has some cute options, and so does Madewell!

8. Valentine’s Day Date Outfit Idea

Heading out on a date this Valentine’s Day? There’s no reason to avoid your favorite spring dresses. Just add a coordinating winter coat and you’ll be good to go. I loved pairing this light pink Eliza J coat with this two toned Aidan by Aidan Mattox dress last spring. It was chilly when we went to see the Cherry Blossoms at the Univeristy of Washington Quad so this coat was a lifesaver.

If neutrals are more of your thing, just add a pop of pink! A pink bag from Fossil and this cute necktie from Andie & Erin make the perfect accessories to this navy look.

Staying in for Valentine’s? Cozy up in this fuzzy heart sweater from LC Lauren Conrad’s line at Kohl’s. I saw it online and had to order it! It’s so soft that I’m tempted to live in it 24/7.

This month it snowed in Seattle, and of course I hadn’t finished shooting all of my outfit ideas. What’s a girl to do? Put on her Valentine’s Day Dinner Outfit idea and head outside. This dress is one I picked out a few years ago to celebrate my birthday (thanks, Dave!) and this year I’m updating it with a faux fur jacket, heart bag, and a pair of red shoes.

13. Cute Casual Valentine’s Day Outfits with a Graphic Tee

For a cute and casual Valentine’s Day outfit, why not pick a graphic tee? Mine says “Pick flowers, not fights” which is always a good choice for Valentine’s Day. This look doesn’t scream Valentine’s, which makes it the perfect casual outfit for whatever you’re up to!

14. Floral Valentine’s Day Fashion Look

Last but definitely not least, this outfit reminds me of the red dancer emoji. I love the ruffled, off-the-shoulder sleeves of this LulaRoe Cici dress, and the red floral Joy vest on top is perfection! Just add your favorite red accessories and you’ll be set.

    Valentine’s Day is the one day I get to spend with with just hubby. He just finished up his radiation treatments so this year was extra special. We went to a wonderful restaurant for the most delicious meal. We then came home, cuddled on the couch and watched a good movie.

    Hello Jenn, I loved your tips. You are looking so attractive in this type of outfit. I was celebrating this day with my husband.When he reached home from his workplace,we used to watch a movie and doing fun. Then we took our dinner which I specially made from him. At 10.00 pm, we should get the car and just try to go any highway and enjoy the fresh wind. I loved this fresh wind. Last, we will go to the pastry shop to having some quality dessert.It was really the best day of my life. We are trying to spend the day delightfully.However, I should follow your tips and give you the feedback also. Thanks for your great idea.
