The most anticipated date-night of the year is FINALLY upon us: Valentine’s Day. Now, there may be some guys and girls who are STILL scurrying for last minute gifts, reservations (oops!), and bouquet arrangements — it happens! But, if there’s something that doesn’t belong in the infamous Last Minute Club (yup, I made it up just now, and you can shamelessly jump on board), then it has to be your date-night outfit. Or, should I say outfitS?

Valentine’s Day is a time to celebrate the love you share with your partner. It can also be a great way to show the world the love the two of you have for fashion! This year, I encourage all couples to go the extra mile and have your outfits complement one another’s for a night on the town — just don’t step out in matching bright pink leotards!  

In case you’re strapped for ways to bring together the perfect His & Hers look, I’ve got you covered. It’s so easy to play with colors, cuts, and accessories when figuring out how to deliver total #couplefashiongoals, and here’s a bit of inspo to get you started.

Look 1: Simple and Solids

Solids don’t have to be boring, nope! A deep green dress never looked so good with a berry lip and gold accessories. Now, add in that purple pugh (turban) and blue vest to the mix and you’re a match made in heaven. The earth-like tones are a good way to add newness to Valentine’s Day which is usually all about the pinks and reds! The best part about these ensembles is the simplicity — carry them with poise and grace. Your Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to be complicated to be noticed!

Look 2: Velvet? Check!

With velvet being all the rage, the leading lady in your life can’t go wrong with a tulip cut dress in this cozy-yet-classy material. The beige is the ideal color to pair with a vibrant red lip to give you all the rosy and rouge Valentine’s Day feels! The blue checkered suit for the men makes for a win-win situation. The checkers add the perfect dimension to what can be an otherwise plain coat and pant. The red pugh (turban) adds a firey touch, and not to mention the ultimate accent accessory: the peacock feather. Both are dressed to the nines and there’s no regret about it! Don’t have a peacock feather? Don’t sweat it! Red pocket square and a matching red lapel pin a timeless and classy alternatives!
