Here at Connected Apparel, we love love. 

Love is a four-letter word that comes in all shapes and sizes; the words we utter to close a phone call or our fingers quickly type to friends with heart-shaped emojis. Valentine's Day is an opportunity to remind your partner or your friends and family how much you love them. It's a day for chocolates, flowers and romantic Valentine's Day gifts, but it’s also a day to get all dolled up and feel your best.

Roses are red, violets are blue…whatever your Valentine’s Day plans, we have the perfect outfit for you!

Wearing anything adorned in red or flowers will definitely make you look like a Valentine's Day enthusiast. Whether that's the look you’re going for or something a little more subtle, we have Valentine’s Day outfits to fit all of your plans.

If your plans are a fancy dinner for two, don’t skimp in the outfit department! 

Cupid’s holiday is reason enough to get all dolled up. Put together a foolproof look that will have you feeling your very best and will have your significant other’s eyes on you all night. From shimmery sequin lace to sultry detailing, you’ll find the perfect date night dress for Valentine’s Day 2024.

Take our Lisette Red Leopard Faux Wrap Dress for example. This valentines day red dress is a statement color that hugs all the curves thanks to the fitted silhouette and faux wrap detail. Being that the weather is likely to be chilly, add your jacket or maybe go extra lavish with (faux) fur. For a subtle yet festive approach, the Elsa is a simple back sheath dress with a metallic red rose cape. This flirty cape make this a popular figure flattering dress that can easily be paired with heels or booties.

For some of us, Valentine’s Day is another work day (with a little more love). And we need an outfit versatile enough to go from desk to dinner, better known as day to night dress.

Take an extra bag with a change of accessories and shoes and be ready to look your best for the night. These looks are sophisticated enough for your office but elegant enough for your dinner date. Our Lisa 2.0 Dress, for instance, is an office favorite. Her faux wrap design, elbow sleeves with flounce and knee length make this dress modest yet charming enough for a night out. Another great option is the Effie dress, which features a cowl neck and comes with an attached jacket. We especially love the color block magic of this dress as it gives off the appeal of a three-piece ensemble (skirt, blouse and cardigan), but is in fact one piece! And the color is very striking for a Valentine’s Day red dress.
