The world’s still battling a global pandemic, which means Valentine’s Day will be a smaller, homier affair. But! There is a silver lining to planning date-night outfit ideas at home: You’re under zero obligation to wear heels and you don’t need to worry about your ruining your outfit with a bulky coat.
Since February 14 is expected to be low-key this year, you might as well keep your outfit casual while staying in and ordering takeout—and celebrities can be a great source of inspiration when planning your look. Take notes from Bling Empire’s Jaime Xie for tips on how to make a sweatsuit feel fresh for date night. If you’re set on dressing up for the occasion without sacrificing comfort, lift a page from Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s stylebook and pair split-hem leggings with a blazer. Or—if you really want to go all out—take notes from Hailey Baldwin and opt for glossy leather leggings with a statement-making top. You might as well get one good winter outfit in before spring hits, right?
Whatever’s on the agenda in the coming weeks, there’s no denying these celebrity outfits make for fantastic V-Day inspo—and you can always add accessories to make the look feel more your own. Plus, you can totally bookmark these ’fits for the rest of the year since they lend themselves well to layering up or down depending on the season. Shop six Valentine’s Day date-night outfit ideas below.
Lingerie as outerwear
Embrace a lingerie moment by tucking a bodysuit into black high-waist jeans. Choose one with visual texture (hi, velvet) as Cindy Bruna did, or go for a lace-and-mesh number with a seductive cut. If your style leans more ’90s, you can totally swap the skinny jeans for a straight-leg style. Need to make a quick store run before dinner? Bundle up in a down puffer jacket to stay toasty. (You may just want to zip your coat—it’s definitely still cold outside!)

Hailey Bieber has blessed us with many date-night-ready outfits, but this is one of our favorites. She balanced out the proportions of a voluminous top by tucking it into patent leather leggings and tying it all together with a Saint Laurent belt. Swap the stiletto heels for footwear of the woolly or shearling variety to keep things cozy whilst at home. You probably won’t be needing a leather jacket indoors, but if you’re going full-on Grease, we won’t rob you of your moment.

Game, set, match
You don’t have to wear lace or leather just because it’s Valentine’s Day. Irina Shayk stepped out in a knit set, proving a comfy tonal look is just as impactful. The fashion mood of late is chocolate brown, but honestly, any color goes when you’re wearing matching separates. Pocket this outfit for another occasion if you want something that maybe feels less like your WFH uniform.
Jaime Xie’s patchwork sweatpants are a statement on their own, but the Bling Empire star is also rocking a Gucci sweatshirt because what else does a billionaire’s daughter wear on a coffee run? Break away from the monochrome sets and let the Valentine’s Day–friendly bubblegum color palette inform your own date-night outfit.
More exposed lingerie! Like a true boho queen, Chrissy Teigen paired an antique rose slip with a fringe knit top, suede thigh-high boots, and face jewelry. The combination of a chunky sweater with a thin layer is an effortlessly cool look with year-round potential. Bonus: You can head straight to the bedroom after your meal. (Cue the wink emoji face.)
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley sure knows her way around a blazer and black leggings (Exhibit A, B, C—you get it). Reach for a split-hem style to show off furry slippers, then finish off with a tissue turtleneck and long-line blazer.
