Valentine’s Day is only a couple of weeks away so naturally we’re using it as an excuse to buy an entirely new wardrobe. Whether you’re happily single and looking forward to Galentine’s drinks with the girls or being treated to a swanky dinner with the hubby, here are our top 4 date night outfits…

Seeing as Valentine’s falls on hump day this year (take that as you wish), we’ve devised the perfect office-to-out ensemble. No-one needs the Spanish Inquisition at 9am as they arrive at work in a gorgeous but-not-9-5-appropriate date night outfit. So opt for something understated but easily elevated – cue our cream wrap-around knit (with a cami underneath as you might boil up at your desk) and khaki capri trousers. Then, for a fashion-forward nod – these lilac slingbacks are not only going to win you enviable glances from all the women in the room, the kitten heel means comfort is a given.

We LOVE an activity date as it takes the pressure off the conversation and focuses your attention to the task at hand. If you’re going bowling or to crazy golf this Valentine’s Day, your outfit should be laidback but stylish. A shirt and sweater combo is considered but casual. Team it with some high rise jeans and white Converse to show you’re comfortable being… comfortable. You’ll feel more confident wearing something you usually wear rather than reinventing your style for the purpose of this one day. If an outdoor activity is on the cards, wrap up! Invest in a statement duvet jacket – we’ve been living in ours all season!

Going somewhere posh? Dial it up with a jumpsuit and heels. This navy belted number is hella flattering, cinching in at the waist and falling loosely over the legs. Get.it.in.your.basket. For extra fashion kudos (and to combat any exposed arm worries), layer a white shirt underneath. With simple black courts and a timeless trench, you’ll ooze sophistication on your date. For a pop of colour, a jazzy chevron tote will look trés chic on the crook of your arm.

Finally, if heading out on Valentine’s Day fills you with dread, treat yourself to some sumptuous loungewear and get cosy in the comfort of your own home. A slouchy grey top and pink joggers is the perfect staying-in-and-ordering-Deliveroo ensemble. Plus, this luxury bra is not just for February 14th – it’s super comfy for everyday wear with light padding and a natural shape.
