That’s why we’ve put together the ultimate guide to V-Day outfit ideas. Plus, we break them down into what kind of date you’re going on, let’s go!
Layers on layers on layers
Grab a scarf, a vest, and an overcoat for the ultimate fancy dinner entrance. Don’t be afraid to accessorize with this one!
Put on your V-Day vest
All you need to nail this one is a pressed white shirt, and a matching vest and jeans. Pop on a pair of smart glasses and that’s it!
Khaki’s where it’s at
Don’t be afraid of the khakis, embrace them. And pair them with some dark shoes, a dark sport coat, and a lighter button-down.
Show off those ankles
Nothing says “dining with confidence” quite like some bare ankles. Go for a fitted suit with a pair of loafers, and ditch the socks.
Camel is in
Say it with us. Camel. Is. In. This includes blazers, overcoats, turtlenecks, you name it. Plus, you can pair it with white or light-colored denim.
It’s all in the tee
Yes, you can 100% wear a t-shirt to a casual Valentine’s Day dinner. But the key is, it has to be of high quality. Pro tip: you can find some quality, fitted t-shirts right here at True Classic.
For cold weather…
If you’re going out for a casual dinner somewhere cold, go with a puffy jacket and matching monotone palette.
For warm weather…
In warmer spots, reach for distressed jeans and a nice linen button-down shirt to stay cool. Don’t forget your shades!
The classic baseball tee
Movie theaters get chilly, dudes. This Valentine’s Day, go with a tailored denim pant, some fresh white sneakers, and a classic baseball tee to stay comfortable.

Be the bad boy
Get even edgier this Valentine’s Day with some dark jeans and a tough leather jacket. The key here is making sure you’ve got the perfect tee underneath.

Happy hour is all about having fun. Pop on your coolest outfit (we suggest a denim jacket, at least) so you can relax and let loose.
Hoodies and jackets = perfect
V-Day happy hours are the perfect place to show off your wardrobe. Sport some layers with a hoodie and a jacket to kill two birds with one stone.
Sneaks and a long-sleeve tee

Embrace the color pink
Show your Valentine’s Day pride this year by wearing a comfortable pink sweatshirt. It’s a surefire way to signal your holiday spirit!

Group dates usually mean a few location changes, maybe from dinner to the movies. So wear smart layers to keep up with the group’s pace.
Roll your cuffs
Show off your ankles, rock the double denim, and don’t be afraid to roll those cuffs. It’s cool, it’s comfortable, and it’s fresh.
