What to Wear on Valentine's OR Galentine's Day

It's almost Valentine's Day! Whether you are celebrating with your loved one or celebrating with your friends a la Galentine's Day, it's always so fun to dress up for your special date. Are you a romantic? Super casual? Going green? We've put together a few looks to inspire you no matter what you're doing on Tuesday, using vintage threads, local jewels, and real women.

 

LEVEL ONE | CASUAL

VALENTINE/GALENTINE: Layer a chunky statement necklace over your cozy sweater for another easy look that's less festive and more girly. This is casual enough to wear to school or work and can easily transition into a date night look or a Galentine's dinner.

LEVEL TWO | FESTIVE

GALENTINE: A pair of floral skirt is casual and cute, festive without feeling stuffy or overly-romantic, and perfect for a date with a new fling or a fun night out with your friends. They're even cozy enough for a night in the couch with Netflix! * You can buy this skirt! https://www.deeprootscollective.com/theshop.

LEVEL THREE | CUTE

GALENTINE OR VALENTINE: More layers! Layering soft fabrics, romantic colors, and coordinating baubles is an easy way to keep things casual while dressing for your galentine/valentine. A consistent color palette like this one (whites/tans/pinks) looks put together, but super low-key.

LEVEL FOUR | ROMANTIC

VALENTINE: A shiny pleated dress is definitely a bit more... dressy! Snag a last-minute dress from your local thrift store (Buffalo Exchange, B. Resale, Plato's Closet) or grab that LBD from the back of your own closet and layer a bohemian necklace and beaded bracelet set to tone down the glamor. Wearing your hair down is also a nice way to look less "dress up" and more trendy.

LEVEL FIVE | FANCY

VALENTINE: This is a celebration. If you're looking for a deeply romantic and fashion-forward look, a floral-printed dress with bell sleeves is our favorite option and looks timeless. Pair it with sky-high heels for drama or booties for a bohemian flair.
