We’ve hand-selected some of the most romantic things to do in 3 major cities across the U.S. and paired them with an ideal outfit for the occasion. And if you won’t be celebrating in one of these major cities, you can still steal the look and use the date idea as inspiration for your own local Valentine’s night.
With hundreds of amazing restaurants to choose from in Manhattan, it’s hard to go wrong. But if you want a place truly special and romantic, we recommend Freeman’s. Tucked (literally) at the back of an alleyway off the Bowery and serving up elevated American fare since 2004, it truly is one of a kind. Make a night of it by starting off with some of the modern art in the area. Take in the Faith Ringgold exhibit at the New Museum or go gallery hopping. If you’re looking for more to do after dinner, hail a cab to go to Pier 17 for cocktails and ice skating on a heart-shaped rink with views of the Brooklyn Bridge.
This Valentine’s Day outfit allows you to be comfortable while taking in art without being underdressed for dinner. This dress with mesh detail adds just the right amount of sexy for a romantic date. And the jewelry and red coat add a feminine Valentine’s touch.
This Valentine’s Day, if you’re in LA, grab dinner and a show. Start at Tar & Roses, voted as one of the most romantic restaurants in Los Angeles. Then see Licorice Pizza in the original 35mm format. Showing at 7:30 pm at Aero Theatre in Santa Monica, this classic film is the epitome of romance. And if you’re not ready to end the night after watching the romance of the 20th century, you can always explore the Santa Monica pier with your date.
For this night of romance, take a hint from Casablanca star Ingrid Bergman. This Valentine’s Day outfit is inspired by her classic style in the film. It’s been updated for the 21st century, though, with a slit in the maxi skirt and heels that are made to move in.
If you want a truly romantic experience for Valentine’s Day in Dallas this year, enjoy dinner at one of the best restaurants in Dallas, followed by a rooftop rendezvous with chocolate and champagne. Uchi is a modern, upscale sushi restaurant, where you can’t go wrong with the 10-course chef’s menu. After dinner, head across the Trinity River for dessert and drinks with amazing views of Dallas at Saint Rocco’s New York Italian Love on the Rooftop event.
This Dallas Valentine’s Day outfit features a timeless yet flirty red dress that will flatter many figures. Make a statement by adding bold statement earrings and finish with white heels for a classic look.
