Don’t let the ongoing pandemic stop you from having a romantic Valentine’s Day. Although it may be hard to snag an indoor candlelit dinner reservation, you can still celebrate at home! That includes everyone reading this, whether you’re single or taken! Take this time to be thankful for your significant other, best friend, and family members, while also using the holiday as an excuse to treat yourself to a new festive outfit that does not break the bank. Besides, we all could use some retail therapy anyway. The following are my suggestions for affordable Valentine’s Day outfit ideas you can recreate on a budget!

For this upcoming Valentine’s Day, trade your cheesy heart prints for something unexpected and cool! A pink or red patterned dress is a quick, no-brainer outfit that looks good on everyone, is easy on the wallet and ideal to celebrate the holiday of love! I always love a little bit of pattern mixing too so do not be afraid to think out-of-the-box. For instance, a vintage-inspired print paired with boots in a similar color manages to work so well together!

Lady in Red

Without a doubt, one of my favorite affordable, yet undeniably chic hacks to a good outfit is any sort of dress. There are so many to choose from so you should have no trouble finding the perfect one. Instead of the aforementioned pattern options, a solid-colored red dress always makes a good statement, especially on February 14th! Whether it be cotton, lace, silk or velvet, I feel like a red dress always makes the wearer feel bold and beautiful. You could even pair it with your favorite red lipstick to complete the V-day look.

Sometimes the best date night outfit is plain and simple. That doesn’t mean boring though – in fact, use pink accessories to take your outfit to level 10 instantly. This is style hack is best for monochromatic looks in white, beige, or black, which you probably already own most of. Whether you’re chilling with the boo or your girlfriends, this is an affordable Valentine’s Day outfit that will never fail.

Romantic Top

I am absolutely stoked that the statement details continue to play a huge part of 2021 fashion trends. On top of that, sheer fabrications are another hot item so I love that this top incorporates both. An affordable Valentine’s Day outfit is as simple as investing in a new flirty top to pair with your favorite jeans. Whether you opt for the romantic puff sleeve or show a little skin with something sheer (or both), you’ll be turning heads! Plus, romantic tops and blouses are not going anywhere so you can repeat it throughout the season.

Of course, nothing beats the cure-all outfit for any occasion – the LBD. A classy little black dress will never go out of fashion so if you are in need of a new one, you know you can always wear it again in the future. Your biggest problem is just deciding which style to go for! Anything from trendy cutouts to minimal silhouettes is fair play on Valentine’s Day. If you are indeed staying home, make plans with your S.O. to both dress up so you can make the holiday feel a little bit special
