Ooze love with these Valentine's / Galentine's Day outfits!

Valentine’s Day is fast approaching, and if you’ve got something special planned, you’ll need an outfit for the occasion! Whether it’s a romantic date with your significant other or a ‘Galentine’s’ date with your besties, we’ve got the best looks for you!

So we’ve put together a selection of splendid outfits for the annual celebration of romance.


Valentine’s Day!

Let’s start with those that are all loved up. Your Valentine’s date might be a romantic night at home on the couch, a relaxing picnic at dusk with a basket of goodies, or a fancy dinner at that restaurant you’ve been dying to try. Whatever the plan, we’ve got the outfit for you.
Romantic night in

Romantic night in

For the movie date at home, you probably want to go for a casual yet feminine look. This Shirred Floral Top would look great with a slim fitting skirt, jeans, or even some cute shorts. The round frill neckline, frill sleeves and floral print are super girly. Wear some drop earrings and you’re done.

This romantic and feminine Zhala Floral Zip Front Dress is perfect for your backyard date at home. It has a flattering cinched-in waist and short cap sleeves. The top to bottom front zip is extra fun. Wear it with heels you can easily slip off!

Romantic Picnic Outfits

Romantic Picnic Outfits

This Floral Tiered Maxi Dress would look absolutely divine on that picnic blanket in the park. When the temperature cools, you can tuck your legs up in the dress and feel extra cosy. The floral print in yellow and pink is super flattering, and the short flounce sleeves and tie waist makes it super easy and comfortable. Add sandals and you’re all set.

Another contender for romantic picnic outfit is this short Floral Tie Waist Tea Dress. It has a ditsy floral print, frill cuffs and ruffled hemline, so it oozes feminine chic. Wear it with sandals or sneakers for a casual yet cute look.

Dinner date

Dinner date

This Halter Neck Midi Dress screams romance. The burgundy colour reminds us of love hearts, and it has a rich metallic detail, ruffle hi-low hem, and soft tucks at the neck. Dress it with strappy heels and fancy earrings. This one would be perfect for spinning around a dance floor after you eat, if your evening heads that way!

This Shelby Sequin Short Dress will really dazzle your date at dinner. It has a centre back zip, and stretch fabric, so you’ll feel perfectly comfortable. Grab an evening clutch and fancy heels, and let the love flow!

Galentine's Day!

Gone are the days when you relied on your sweetie pie asking you out for a valentine’s day date. These days, there’s Galentine’s Day, which pips Valentine’s Day to the post by occurring on February 13th!

Galentine’s Day is all about celebrating yourself and your gal pals, without the romance stuff. It can involve indulgences like gifts and day spas, or can be just a plain pyjama party or brunch out with your ladies.

Whilst Galentine’s Day may have had its origins in TV comedy (see more on the auspicious day here), it has found a firm base in popular culture and increasing numbers of women celebrate it. It’s about empowerment, and reminds us we don’t need a romantic date to indulge and feel special.

So in keeping with that, why not wear something super flirty and flattering just for yourself and your pals on Feb 13th?

Party Dresses

Party Dresses

If you’re headed out on the town with the girls (or you’ve planned a lounge room disco in), this dazzling Crossover Sequin Dress is just the ticket for having fun. With all over sequin detail and a flattering V neckline, this dress has the bling you need to remind yourself what a gem you are! Add evening heels and your look is complete.

Another Galentine’s evening option is the Zandra Fringe Flapper Dress. Who could appreciate those flapping fringes more than your besties? With a diagonal fringe detail and short length, this frock will turn heads. All you need is heels and you’re set for a great night out.

Don’t forget skirts! This Tulle Skirt will be a talking piece on a dinner out with your amigas. Add a sequin top if you want to up the dazzle factor.

Brunch outfits

Brunch outfits

For brunch with the gals, we love this Tiered Pleated Floral Dress. This ultra-feminine dress is flattering in all the right places, plus the tiers are super cute. You can wear it on or off the shoulder, and it’s elasticated at the neckline and waist. The gorgeous pleated and textured georgette in floral print means you don’t really need to add anything (perhaps earrings?). Wear it with strappy heels or wedges.

For a more casual brunch occasion, another sweet option is this Floral Babydoll Dress, with cinched in waist and side pockets. The ruffle tiered hem is girly and fun. Wear it with sneakers for a fun Galentine’s Day look.

Along the same lines is this Pia Floral Frill Tiered Short Dress. It’s so cute that if you don’t already have a sweetheart, it might just send suitors in your direction! With frill detailing on the tiers and sleeves, this one just needs some strappy heels and delicate jewellery.

We hope you embrace all that love this year and celebrate with a fabulous outfit from Femme Connection!
