How exciting is it that this year, Valentine’s Day falls on a Friday night? Drinks, dinner, dancing? Weekend getaway? Whatever you and your sweetheart have planned, make his heart skip a beat in one of these easy-to-locate, Valentine’s Day inspired dresses. Due to their timeless styles and colors, they could all easily become classic pieces in your closet. And in honor of affordability and my 150th post(!), all the dresses are under $150, so you can still afford to pick up a bottle of his favorite scotch/box of chocolate/whatever his heart desires.


Curved Seam Plated Skirt Dress Candy Coral, $89.50


The high neck balances perfectly with the flirty curved seaming at the bodice and shorter length. In this sweet candy pink, you will be his living, breathing version of candy hearts. And if you order online, LOFT is currently giving an extra 40% off this dress! Just use promo code BEMINE.

Banana Republic

Gemma Wrap Dress in Wild Orchid, $98


Diane von Furstenberg, who invented the wrap dress 4o years ago, knew that the style perfectly compliments a women’s shape while looking either completely sexy or work appropriate or both simultaneously. Wrap dresses exude both femininity and strength and the Gemma Wrap has long been a Banana Republic bestseller. This fun, bright fuchsia color mixed with the elegant shape will have you looking beautiful during your V-Day plans.

Ponte Short-Sleeve Dress in Geo Red, $110


This dress will live forever in your closet. A classic shape in a ladylike orange-red (they make amazing lipsticks this color!), this dress is another one that can turn into a dozen different looks depending on how you accessorize. Try adding a wide black belt, or a skinny gold one, and coordinating shoes and poof – instantly two different outfits with the same dress.

Ann Taylor

Lace Yoke Short Sleeve Dress in Modern Cherry, $149


A show stopper, this dress has gorgeous front and back lace that adds an arresting accent to this flattering-for-all shift style. The boatneck and short sleeves are both cute and sophisticated.

Old Navy

Women’s Twill Shirt Dress in Apple of My Eye, $32.94


A shirt dress is like an amazing blank canvas. Dress it up with a chunky necklace, heels, and dressy hair and makeup or keep it more casual if that matches better this weekend’s date or your personal style. With this great price and vibrant color, every woman should run out and buy this dress.


Either of these sexy, flirty, fun dresses from Anthropologie would be perfect on Friday night!

Urban Outfitters

Coincidence & Chance Heart-Back Cutout Dress, $59
