Valentine's Day is quickly approaching, which means that your upcoming date plans (and what outfit to wear) are currently in the works, whether they're happening IRL or virtually. Since most of us have spent the majority of the past year inside and away from the ones we love, this holiday seems even more important to show them exactly how much you care.
For most states across the country, things still don't seem as if they'll be returning back to "normal" anytime soon, which may cause some serious restrictions to those grand romantic gestures that usually surround the festive holiday. Nevertheless, you still need a bomb outfit for whatever your plans are, whether that's a socially distanced brunch, a walk through the park, or a special date via Zoom.
Below, we came up with the best lovecore-inspired outfits to wear for Valentine's Day no matter the occasion, from cozy pajamas for a chill night in to statement tops that will catch your long-distance loved one's eye through the screen.
