Valentine’s Day is typically one of those holidays that are fun in theory. And while I love the idea of some sort of glamorous transformation — smack dab in the middle of February — my reality is typically, uh, DIFFERENT.

Seriously Cute (& Easy) Valentine’s Day Outfit Ideas

That said, any excuse for a date night is a good one, so Mike and I try to sneak one in somewhere in the Valentine’s Day Vicinity. It is February, so I stay on-theme with sweaters and jeans, but will amp it up with heels and bright lipstick (pink this year, I think).

It turns out that Everlane — a brand much beloved here on TME — has some seriously cute options that make perfect Valentine’s Day looks. And by “perfect” I mean easy, festive and warm enough for a Lyft in February.


Everlane Valentine’s Day Outfit Idea 1: White Jeans

There’s something almost indulgent about wearing white jeans in February. Not only do they feel fresh (and chic), but they’re almost…daring? But in a totally casual, “yeah, I do this all the time” kind of way.

To warm things up further, I played around with a few layering options. Remember the ol’ pashmina? Everlane’s wool & cashmere blanket scarf is perfect for that.

The other layering option that feels really fresh (figuratively and literally, haha) is an all-white version of denim-on-denim. It almost spoofs a suit (and the scarf still works).

Outfit Details

sweater: Everlane Cashmere Turtleneck Sweater, black (size small) – Everlane’s cashmere quality is really good, but the sweater does fit small. Size up for a slouchier fit (although I do prefer mine a little tighter for date night). The slimmer fit tucks in nicely, too.

jeans: Everlane High Rise Skinny Jeans, bone (26 ankle) – I don’t love my white jeans to fit super-tight, so I sized up one. These are basically perfect. Love the wash, the thickness of fabric, the fit.

denim jacket: Everlane Denim Jacket, bone (xs) – This was a fun surprise. The fit is not-quite-oversized and just a little boxy, so I went with my usual size. It fits well over sweaters and isn’t stiff.

heels: Everlane Editor Heel, black – These are comfortable!! I appreciate the walkable heel height combined with the shoe’s sexy lines. I tend to be a 6-6.5 in most shoes, and the size 6 was way too big — I exchanged it for a 5.5, which fit perfectly.

scarf: Everlane Blanket Scarf – This is an insanely soft wool & cashmere blend. The scarf is thick and delicious, and I think I like it as a wrap even more than a scarf. Shall we try to bring pashminas back? 😉

bag: Everlane Micro Form Bag – I didn’t realize how much I needed a tiny blush pink bag until I tried this one. It goes with everything, makes my winter blacks more interesting, feels like nothing on, and fits my iPhone. Perfect. (Such a cute gift, too.)


Everlane Valentine’s Day Outfit Idea 2: Pile on Pinks

This look is alllll about the gorgeous pink sweater. Especially when paired with a tiny blush bag and heels in a slightly mismatched hue. (I always find Tone-On-Tone to be much more interesting than Perfectly Matched.)

Bright pink lipstick and pink champagne optional…but highly recommended.

Outfit Details

sweater: Everlane Oversized Alpaca Crew (xs) – Not only is Alpaca insanely cozy and warm, but it has a smaller ecological footprint. I have this in the dark gray, too, and love it. But it’s hard to resist this pink. Gorg.

jeans: Everlane Cheeky Straight Leg Jeans, blue wash (26 ankle) – The sexiest mom jeans you ever did see. I may cut them off one more inch (to pair with sneakers, too), but I love the way these fit…and they’re soft. A total win.

heels: Everlane Editor Heel, black – These are comfortable!! I appreciate the walkable heel height combined with the shoe’s sexy lines. I tend to be a 6-6.5 in most shoes, and the size 6 was way too big — I exchanged it for a 5.5, which fit perfectly.

Cheers to celebrating love, whether it’s on Valentine’s Day…or just somewhere in the Valentine’s Vicinity.

I’m swooning. In case you couldn’t tell.
