What To Wear On A Valentine’s Day Date

Whether you’re stepping out for some fine dining or heading to the movies, deciding what to wear on a date is always tricky. You want to make an effort while not overdoing it.

While you may not be dressing to impress after 20 years of marriage, you would still want to make an effort. And for those in the beginning stages of a budding romance or going on a first date (eek!), you’ll want to make a good impression.

The key to looking and feeling fabulous on a date? Wear something comfortable! Restrictive clothing is never ideal. You want to be brimming with confidence, not tugging at your top. Scroll down for our ideas on what to wear…
