How to Dress on Valentine's Date Night, Without Feeling OTT

The art of looking smokin' hot but entirely casual and coolly understated at the same time isn't easy, but it's definitely doable. Whether you're heading out on Valentine's Day (it's midweek on a Tuesday this year, btw) for a romantic ménage à deux or you're saving it until the weekend, there are outfits that speak the right language without exposing too much skin or looking like they've been subject to a week's long sartorial study.

From a classic miniskirt, jumper, and boots combo to the more updated version of the classic jean ensemble (just exchange your denim for a pair of bodycon stirrup leggings), there are plenty of chic and Valentine's Day ideas. We sourced all of these looks from our favourite street style mavens in order to pinpoint four high-fashion romantic ensembles. Keep scrolling to decide on your after-dark look.
