The dinner date

Oh, The Dinner Date. Nothing goes better with a smart suit than a siren red floral maxi dress. A date-night-ready dress like this is fire, and can be dressed up or down depending on the situation.

Sexy sundowners

To easily stun your date while the sun is setting, swap out your jeans for a dark floral frock. This seductive twist on the LBD is edgy without trying too hard. You’ll play the part of the Valentine's vixen in this slightly more dressed-up ensemble. Gents, ditch the trousers; shorts are no longer reserved only for sport or casual wear. Deliver a knockout blow by pulling on a navy shorts suit and checked shirt for a smart summer sundowner.

A coffee date

If your crush wants to meet up for a cuppa, achieving a style that appears casual yet effortlessly chic is the ultimate goal. For this laid-back meet-up, we love a tried-and-tested T-shirt and pleated skirt combo teamed with trainers. In fact this stylish look works all year long, and transforms well from day to night – just swap in some killer heels and go. For the guys, play it cool in stylish stripes.

A fine bromance

Guys, if your Valentine’s Day involves hanging out with your boys, which in turn means hitting up the swankiest bars, but you don't know what to wear – don’t worry, we're here to help. Bro culture is on the rise and hanging with the homies calls for a bold balancing act – casual with a hint of cool. Pair chinos with a crisp shirt and blazer or change up your chinos for some denim and you’re ready to rock 'n roll.

A casual hangout

A cool yet casual date outfit is a must when a dose of Netflix and Chill is on the romance menu. Although the outing doesn’t require the same standard of dress as dining at a five-star restaurant, it does merit some effort in the style department. For a more comfortable outfit, wear an effortless sweater paired with joggers and add some statement sneakers.
