Style Challenge: What to Wear for a Valentine’s Day date?

Like it or loathe it, Valentine’s Day is creeping up, and so this round of Style Challenge is a free-for all. We want to know what you think would make the perfect outfit for a Valentine’s Day date. Pick your fantasy clothes, or show us what you’ll actually be wearing if you’re planning on celebrating February 14th: it’s up to you!

The usual Style Challenge rules apply, and you’ll find them under the jump. One last thing, though: do you want us to continue providing polls on Style Challenge results? Place your vote in the poll below, and we’ll go with the majority decision!

[polldaddy poll=2609428]

The Rules:

1. Log-in to Polyvore (you may need to create an account first, if you don’t already have one)

2. Create your outfit, save it and then…

3. Post a link to your completed outfit in the comments on this post.

4. Please note: you’re free to post links to as many outfits as you like, but please be aware that we’ll only post one entry per person. You can let us know which one you’d like us to use if you wish – if you don’t specify one, we’ll just choose the first one posted.

5. Once you’ve posted your link, please double check it to make sure it’s working properly – we get a lot of people posting links to the Polyvore home page, so we don’t get to see your outfit!

6. Comments on this entry will close on Monday, at around midday GMT. Once the comments are closed, we won’t be able to accept any further entries, so make sure you get yours in early!

    This was actually a set I made up back a few months ago for the thigh-high boots challenge, but I worked on it too long and never got a chance to submit it!! It immediately popped into my mind when I saw this challenge because I am definitely wearing a pink sweater and my black over-the-knee boots out to dinner. It just depends on where we go, if I wear skinny jeans with the boots or a skirt like in this set.

    A set I did awhile ago, redone a bit for this challenge. For a more informal date- I’m not much one for wearing dresses in the cold, or going to fancy places on valentine’s day.

    Sometimes its rubbish being single on Valentine’s Day. Facing what will be my first February 14th alone for quite a while, I’ve decided it would be fun to drink coffee at an outdoor table with friends & gaze at the cute men who walk by. Better than moping around any day!

    my boyfriend and i are probably just going to go to a restaurant for valentine’s day, so assuming money was no object as far as my wardrobe was concerned, this is the sort of thing i’d like to wear.

    On Valentine’s Day, I think you should have a little bit of comfort, feel a little bit sexy…and above all, be very very touchable…

    I choose a non conventional outfit in saffron and burgundy.. hope you’ll like it! Also I choose cozy clothes: since this year winter seems to be cold, very cold even in Italy! 🙁

    I know red is a bit cliché on Valentines day but I thought mixing it up with Navy would make it far less cutesy.The gorgeous navy shoes are heart peep toe and have red soles. Subtle Valentine style shoes!? I think so!

    This look is very elegant, it is suitable for daywear and night 🙂 I think the whole outfit is ideal for valentines day and doesnt scream “over the top” as I like my outfits to be casual but yet unique. I hope you like it 😉 x

    This look is elegant, it is suitable for daytime and also night. I believe it is great for Valentines Day as it has that casual dressed up feeling about it and doesnt scream “over the top” as I like my outfits to be on style but also unique. I hope you like it 😉
