When it comes to your Valentine's Day outfit, it's never too early to start planning your look. Whether you want to add a satin midi dress to your capsule wardrobe, or manifest an uber-romantic eve by matching your outfit to your Valentine's Day nail art look—the possibilities are endless and we've rounded up some killer styles for you!

While traditionally, red is the color synonymous with Valentine’s, there are a lot of other options available to create a sexy or statement look—depending on what you’re going for. And it's safe to say, we'll all be taking a bit of inspo from Maya Jama's latest Love Island outfits, along with trendsetter Kendall Jenner and Hailey Bieber—yes, of course, we'll be repping Hailey's 'glazed donut' manicure.

Fashion-trend-wise, right now it seems like cut-out dresses and 90s slip dresses are still very much in, along with pointy-toed heels, mesh fabric and blazers. But really, the most important thing to remember when shopping for your look is that you feel like a million bucks in your Love-day outfit and maybe a tad spicy too.

So, to help you curate your ultimate Valentine's day look—whether you're celebrating 'Galentine's this year or heading on a date, here are some staples, set to get hearts racing...

Cut out LBD's

You can never go wrong with a little black dress, it’s truly a classic staple that firmly belongs in your closet, no matter the season. While some might argue a black dress is a boring choice, things are amped up with the addition (or rather, subtraction?) of dramatic cut-outs.

Hot pink became well, hot in 2022 thanks to Valentino (take Zendaya's hot pink suit for instance) and it's still very much the moment in 2023. So, why not incorporate the trendy color into your date-night look? Hot pink is also a color often associated with love and crushes, so it's a win-win!
