What To Wear For Valentine’s Day Date Night Or Galentines

Today is the last day of my Valentine’s Day series. It has been a long time since I did a series, but if you enjoyed this one, be sure to comment that you would like to see more in the future. This last day is dressier than the others. These outfits can be worn for work, as a church outfit, appointments, or any time you want to look a little nicer. Get ready for three outfits that would be great for Valentine’s Day date night or Galentines.

What To Wear For Valentine’s Day Date Night Or Galentines – Satin Skirt

What is Galentine?

If you have never heard of a Galentine, don’t feel bad since it is a recent holiday that came about because of a television show. Parks and Recreation aired a show back in 2011 about “The One That Got Away,” and Leslie threw a Galentine event the day before Valentine’s Day for female friends. The show was a hit, and in 2017, the stores and social media started promoting the holiday. Now, on February 13, Galentine’s Day, a nonofficial holiday, is celebrated as a day for “ladies celebrating ladies.”

You know I like versatile clothing, so I picked items you will be able to wear for more than just Valentine’s Day. I get it, not everyone goes out to celebrate Valentine’s Day, but most of us need a nice outfit for a special occasion. This Boat Neck Dolman Sweater is a stunner! It fits so nice, and manages to be roomy and fitted at the same time. You can pull it down for a longer tunic look, but I liked the blouson effect with the leopard skirt.

This Heart Clutch Purse might be the cutest accessory I’ve shown so far. It is absolutely adorable and would be perfect for anyone attending a wedding. It is also available in black, navy, and purple incase red isn’t a color you want to carry.

I added the Ashton Gold Pearl Heart Statement Earrings that were c/o Kendra Scott. These swoon-worthy earrings can be worn more than just for Valentine’s Day. I LOVE these earrings, but they are more expensive than the other earrings I’ll link to. There is a smaller version that is a little less expensive, and they are available in white, red, or pink.

This Leopard Print Skirt is a silky/satin style skirt and would be great for any occasion. It features an elastic waist, so it is comfortable to wear. You know I love leopard print, but the skirt is also available in several colors and prints.

What To Wear For Valentine’s Day Date Night Or Galentines – Feather Trimmed Pants

Before you keep scrolling, don’t let the feather feature on the pants scare you. They are removable, and the pants are machine washable.

The Tie Sleeve Top is by CeCe, which is one of my favorite brands. Their clothing is of nice quality, and it is flattering with a hint of a feminine vibe. The v-neck creates a longer, leaner neck, and the ties at the cuffs are a great detail.

I’ve had this Ostrich Feather Embellished Clutch for a while. It is a showstopper, and I always get asked about it when I carry it somewhere. I keep it in the clear plastic bag it came in to keep the feathers from getting ruffled. No one likes ruffled feathers. Lol!

The double-heart crystal earrings are lightweight and look great for Valentine’s Day. Like the heart clutch above, they would look wonderful for a wedding, bridal shower, or anniversary.

These High Waist Feather Hem Pants are so versatile! They are lightweight, so you can wear them all year round. Because the feathers are removable, it is like getting 2 pairs of pants in one. One that is a statement item, and one that can be a workhorse type piece.

What To Wear For Valentine’s Day Date Night Or Galentines – Satin Dress

I like combining affordable clothing with more expensive items. Can you believe this outfit is from Walmart?

The Faux Suede Double Breasted Trench Coat Jacket is a nice weight trench, and I love the hot pink color. It isn’t too vibrant, but it is bright. The faux suede material is soft and subtle, and the buttons add a nice touch. This classic style trench is also available in a bunch of colors, and runs true to size.

I’ve carried Dooney & Bourke handbags for a long time. I found this Ecru colored bucket bag on sale for 40% off at Nordstrom Rack, and I knew it would be great for this spring and summer. This is a fantastic neutral, and it will look great with almost everything I’ll be wearing.

The heart hoops are versatile and lightweight. They are one of six pairs that are part of the Valentine’s Day Earrings.

Now for the Sleeveless Midi Slip Dress! The dress is by Free Assembly, and if you’ve ever purchased any items from that brand, you know they are usually great quality. I’m always surprised at the thickness and weight of the items I get from them, especially for the price point. I read that this dress runs small, so I ordered a medium and a large. I only tried the large, and since it fit, I didn’t even bother trying the medium on. The straps are adjustable in the back, which creates a nice view if you don’t plan of wearing a cardigan or jacket.

The dress is very silky and flowy and is a gorgeous dress for a dressy occasion. Sizes are limited, so I hope you are able to get one before it completely sells out.

More Looks For Valentine’s Day Date Night Or Galentines

Going out for dinner to celebrate with someone you love? This red dress from Nordstrom is perfect! I love the flirty sleeves and the feminine neckline. Maybe your date will add something sparkly to go there! lol. I think the pleated hip would be very flattering on most women.

Here’s a little more formal dress from Tahari. This satin shirt dress is a fake wrap, which I prefer. No gapping issues to grapple with. I think V-necks are flattering on most people but you do have to make sure they don’t plunge too deep. If you’re in between sizes, I’d size down. Or you can have a pretty lacy bralette, in case.

Here’s a fun and flirty skirt to wear on Valentine’s Day or any date night! Pair it with a pretty black sweater and some boots, and you’re ready to hit the town. Tulle is very big right now, and there are some very feminine looks at the link. There’s a black and white version that’s very elegant. Depending on whether or not they’re on sale, around $50 dollars.

That’s it! We’ve covered everything I could think of to help you celebrate the day of love. You don’t have to have a significant other to still celebrate; you can celebrate your love of life.

  27. I have enjoyed the series, and the many cute items you have posted. Did a big double take on your subject line this morning. Might want to rethink your abbreviation of Valentines Day LOL!

    1. Lol! You mean on the email. Hahaha

  28. Susan Griffin says:

  36. Gay Manning says:

    The red Colman sweater and animal print skirt look beautiful on you. And it came from Amazon ! And your red nail polish set it off!

  37. Series about dressing for holidays is not my thing. The holiday comes and goes and then on to the next one. I’m sure the majority love it so keep doing what you do. I did like most of the outfits you styled. I thank you for styling the Loft T-shirt with amour written on it. I’m supposed to get it soon. I like that I can wear it after Valentine’s. I probably wouldn’t have ordered it if you hadn’t shown it. Thanks once again. Also I ordered navy wide leg pants too. You got me into navy.

  38. Sherry Sousa says:

    Want the Ravens to win! We have a family friend who is the brother of Pat Ricard.!

  39. Packers all the way!! Love and team got this

  40. Marilyn Byrnside says:

    I rarely have any occasion to dress up, but if I did, I would have to try that animal print skirt. I don’t especially like that style sweater, but I would look for one with a closer fit in red. Does anyone else have trouble with boat neck tops falling off their shoulders? Drives me crazy!

  41. I really liked your Valentines series. You gave us many options for all scenarios. Perhaps you would do this again for St. Patrick’s Day? ☘️

  42. Rhoda Clark says:

    Well, since I live near Houston, Texas and am an avid fan of our Texans, I will be glued to my tv, watching what I hope will be a winning game for our beloved Texans. The past few years have been difficult, to say the least, for us and it looks like we are in a much better, positive time.
    Whether we win today or not, considering where we started, we are still way beyond what anyone expected.
    So my entire weekend will be spent watching the playoff games. I sincerely hope that all games are played well, with no injuries and very little penalties. Go Texans!

  43. Love the Valentine’s Day options. I especially love the leopard skirt with three red sweater! I’ve really enjoyed this series. Go 49ers!

  44. Gena Everitt says:

    The leopard skirt and red sweater are stunning on you! And I love all the others!!! I truly enjoy your posts. 💕🥰

  45. Doris Mitchell says:

    Love the series post , please continue with more, maybe black pants and white pants ideas- thank you for including casual and dressy options.

  46. Loved this Valentine series post! Today you knocked it out of the park with the wide selection of items. The feathered pants are my favorite. You were made for this holiday! Thank you for all of the work you put into this series. Happy Valentine’s Day!

  47. Diane Holley says:

    I just bought the heart shape purse and the tulle skirt. Thanks for the ideas and please continue the series. Love everything that you posted today. Have a wonderful weekend.

  48. Go 49ers! Brock Purdy played at Iowa State University! Because of his playing years in my hometown, many locals feel like Brock is a best friend! ❤️❤️❤️🏈🏈🏈

  49. what an awesome series!!! This post has so many cute pieces. Love the heart and feather purses!!! What great fashion statements!!! Oh and those pants are fabulous!!!. Loving the heart tulle skirt. Snowed three days this week in Baltimore. Go Ravens!!!!!!

  50. The leopard skirt outfit is beautiful but don’t have Galentine’s or Valentine’s Day plans!

  51. Lots of great pieces for now and later!

  52. Katherine says:

    Loved the series and the leopard skirt!

  53. So many beautiful pieces of clothing in this post, wow! You find the best, thank you!

  54. Pam Bowling says:

    I LOVED the VD series. I looked forward to each day.

    It might be nice to see a series on transitional clothing between winter and spring.

    Loved the red sweater and leopard skirt!

  55. The slip dress is lovely, and you look lovely wearing it!

    I appreciate your blog, you always make me smile with your stories and honesty.

  56. Love those cute little purses. The heart and feather purses would add a pop to any outfit!

  60. I really enjoyed your valentine series, especially today’s post. You look so pretty in all the outfits. Please continue doing series. I also love your daily Outfit Inspo.

  61. Very nice outfits. Love the leopard print skirt.

  62. What a fun series! Could not love the fur trimmed black pants any more – trying to think of someplace I could wear them. They’d be fabulous for the holidays.

  63. Thank you for showing skirts and dresses as my husband and I always go out for Valentines Day and I like to dress up for him

  64. I have loved the Valentines series! Can’t believe all the great options and accessories you have found! Love them all ! Valentines Day is a sweet and happy holiday so it’s a lot of fun to celebrate!!!!

  65. Loved your series because it was very versatile! Today’s outfits were gorgeous, wish I had places to wear them, but life is so casual most places I go. Yes, football will be on TV all weekend even though the Eagles are out of it. I enjoy watching the Chiefs. Enjoy your weekend after you get your work done!

  66. Margaret DePhillips says:

    This was a fun series, and yes, I would love to see more series! Perhaps a transition winter to spring series would be a good idea? I live in a Chicago suburb, and transitional clothing is always a big help.

  67. I have enjoyed all your Valentine posts, Tanya. So fun and something for everyone! Great job! Love that pink suede trench coat and the heart purse. Always love CeCe. Yes, Walmart has upped their game. On Friday, I had on a cute pair of cargo jeans (back again) from Walmart and one of my students commented on them. She said the same thing, that “Walmart had upped their game”, lol. Stay warm and enjoy the football. Thanks for keeping us “over 50” updated with classics and new fads to look stylish! 🥰🙏.

    1. I’m glad you liked the post.

  68. Love the red heart purses & sure any increased listings wld be fine for V day

  69. I absolutely love that leopard skirt and red sweater. I have that skirt and the sweater in navy (I bought navy for other pants). Need the red after seeing this. Love those black fringe pants too.

  70. Love that trench coat! Walmart comes through again!

  71. Phyllis Martin says:

    It may be 11 degrees but we would be hot in any of those outfits

  72. Jane Cooper says:

    Going to Greece soon. Have you tried any of the Greek beauty products from Korres or Apivita?

    1. Hi, I have used Korres. They are good products but often have a strong smell.

  73. Debbie Tidwell says:

    Wow how I love your posts. The valentines options are awesome. Hope I can get me some

  74. Snowed/iced in at home all week, I enjoyed having the time to check in each day. thank you for all the great ideas.

  75. Tania,
    Love your outfits for a Valentine Day date night, especially the leopard slip skirt. I have one but never thought about paring it with a red sweater. Thanks for the inspiration for a new look for something already in my closet.

    Heck yes, we care about football and will be cheering our Baltimore Raven’s on, today. 🏈🏈🏈🐦‍⬛🐦‍⬛🐦‍⬛💜💜💜

    Tania, would you ever do a series on how you organize your closet?
    What to do with all your shoes etc.

    1. UGH! I’m purging right now and trying to get my closet organzied.

  79. Love the series so YES do more of them…please.

  86. Love the dress and trench coat. The dress has no sleeves so in February how do you keep warm.

  87. Love these outfits, every one of them. I am Funaki going to buy the leopard skirt and also the red sweater! thank you… and happy Valentines Day! loved the series!

  88. Wow….Walmart! Is the snow picture from your house? I so want it to snow in SC. Stay warm. It is very cold here too.

    1. That was a stock photo, not at my house.

  89. I so enjoyed the Valentine series.
    Please do it again. If we were going out for dinner, it would be fun to wear the pants with the fur trim. Enjoy your Valentine’s day.
