5 sexy things to wear instead of a red dress this valentines

February 13, 2018 • By

Tis the season for roses, heart eyes, chocolates and all things red! Truth be told, we are not big on celebrating this lovey-dovey holiday, but it does have some special meaning for us. We adopted our first dog together on Valentine’s Day 5 years ago! And both this year and last year, we have had a big trip planned for February. So while we do use Valentine’s Day as an excuse to eat out, we usually keep our plans pretty low key.

This means I don’t typically get all dolled up in red and pink. I skip the lace dresses and lace lingerie and try to wear things that are sexy to us. Here are some Valentine’s Day date outfit options that aren’t a red dress!

His Tee

Wander to his side of the closet for this look! I don’t think there is anything sexier than grabbing a tee out of his closet to sport for the night. Plus, then it will smell like you the next time he wears it! Front knot or half-tuck for the full effect.

Winter Whites and a Red Lip

White has a dressy feel, even if all the pieces are casual. Top the look off with a red lip (my favorite is Chili from MAC) and some feminine details like a silk scarf or gold rings! Perfect for a group date with friends!

Tall Socks and an Oversized Sweater

This is what I actually live in at home. I actually just hate pants and love being warm, so the thigh-high sock is my go-to solution. Lucky, they also have a sexiness factor! My favorites are these from Free People. This look is ideal for eating spaghetti carbonara on the couch and watching old movies.

Ripped Jeans and a Leather Jacket

For dinner and a drink, you can’t go wrong with leather and distressed denim. Complete the look with a white tee, red or white booties, and long layered necklaces.

White Fluffy Robes

Sexy, simple, and ideal for snuggling! We love this one.
