If you’ve started to plan the perfect Valentine’s Day with your partner and want to make sure that you look the part as well, we’ve got an affordable outfit guide to ensure that you keep your style credentials, no matter what you get up to on the day. So, whether you’re planning to go out for a candle lit dinner, head to the city for some shopping or take a stroll in the countryside, we’ve got you covered!
If enjoying each other’s company over some good food is your type of thing, these three outfit options are sure to help you look the part when dining out:
Option 1: It really is true that the little black dress is a girl’s best friend, and this pleated shift dress from Primark is sure to help you look ravishing at dinner. The genius of the LBD is that it can be dressed up or down depending on your preference. So, why not dazzle your partner this Valentine’s Day by adding a statement necklace to your little black dress? Our top tip is to go for a bold, vibrant necklace that’ll contrast against the black.
Option 2: There’s no reason why you should shy away from colour this Valentine’s Day and this layered dress from F&F at Tesco is sure to help you catch the attention of your partner. The dress embraces the layered trend and features a bold floral print that will also be great for spring – it’s hard to find such a transitional piece for only £22!
Option 3: Alternatively, why not opt for a jumpsuit this Valentine’s Day? This black bandeau jumpsuit from Primark is a bargain at just £17 and will help you to look effortlessly chic whilst remaining comfortable on your date. When wearing a strapless jumpsuit, make sure to keep your shoulders warm by wearing either a biker jacket or a blazer.
As Valentine’s Day falls on a Saturday this year, you may be choosing to spend the day shopping in town or visiting a local museum – who knows you might even be treated to a mini city break! So, to help you dress for more of a casual date, take inspiration from a few of our top picks:
Option 1: This leaf print tunic dress from Primark is a great find at only £13, and its inoffensive colour palette and print makes it an item that you could keep on wearing right up until summer!
Option 2: You can’t go too far wrong with monochrome, and this blocked black and white jumper from Primark will make the perfect addition to any smart-casual outfit. For ideas on how to wear the jumper, why not opt for a pair of skinny jeans, some boots and a khaki coat? You’re sure to have one or two of these items lying around in your wardrobe.
Option 3: Jumpsuits are ideal for a casual day out and this patterned one from H&M is a great find at just £19.99. If the weather is still a bit nippy on the day, you could pair the jumpsuit with some black tights and a chunky cardigan to help keep you warm.
Stroll in the countryside
If you and your partner would rather take a stroll in the countryside – perhaps take in a National Trust (or National Trust for Scotland) property and warm yourselves up with a pub lunch or a proper cream tea afterwards, then we’ve got some casual items to help you keep warm:
Option 1: As long as you’re careful with the type of denim that you pick, double denim can make a great look. So this Valentine’s Day, why not pair this oversized denim shirt from Primark with a pair of dark wash jeans to create the ultimate denim combo? At only £12, the shirt won’t break the bank and its oversized nature will be great to layer up with on the day!
Option 2: This grey knitted cardigan from Primark will help you to keep warm against the winter chill this February, whilst still looking effortlessly stylish. Priced at only £12, the cardigan looks much more expensive than its bargain price tag!
Option 3: For the perfect mix of style and comfort, why not try these khaki leggings from George at Asda? The leggings are incredibly versatile and will stretch enough to help you move easily when taking in the sights of the UK countryside!
