No matter what you're doing this Valentine's Day, show up in one of these three date night-perfect dresses and you'll be sure to wow your man.

Whether you're headed to a fancy dinner, an activity (like the theater) or a more casual, no-frills restaurant for Valentine's Day, you want to look your best, right? Well it's easy to. As long as you plan your outfit around one of these three simple dresses.

Check out our fail-proof V-Day style tips below.


Fancy dinner

Headed to the snazziest joint in town? Make sure you look the part. Show up in a bold red dress that'll be sure to get noticed. Strappy sandals, a sparkly, eye-catching bag and subtle but sweet earrings complete the look.

Sexy fashion

Alice + Olivia Knee-Length Dress (Yoox, $442), Jeffrey Campbell Trina Sandals (Nasty Gal, $155), Lulu Townsend Leopard Glitter Clutch (DSW, $40), Chandelier Earrings (Akira, $19)


The theater

If you're doing an activity with your boo (like going to a play), keep your look sexy, but still slightly comfortable — especially if you'll be sitting for a long time, like at a two-hour show. Try a classic LBD that's not too tight, colorful pumps and a clutch to match. If it's slightly chilly, layer on an embellished jacket for warmth.

Sexy fashion

Black Fit And Flare Dress (Dorothy Perkins, $89), LunarGrand Chelsea Pumps
(Cole Haan, $100), Debutante Slim Asymmetric Clutch (Henri Bendel, $198),
Embellished Chiffon Jacket
(Topshop, $170)


Casual restaurant

Going to your local corner pub? Don't get too dolled up, but don't sacrifice style, either. Opt for a basic printed cotton dress that has movement, throw on a denim jacket to keep the look relaxed, and slip into an adorable pair of flats.

Sexy fashion

Clowning Around Dress (ModCloth, $110), Light Wash Denim Jacket (Mango, $70),
Asymmetric Ballerina Flats (Zara, $36), Juicy Couture Jule Studded Crossbody Bag (Forzieri, $245)
