(SPOT.ph) We know, we know: Valentine’s Day is pretty old-school, but instead of being cynical about it, why not embrace the spirit of the cheesy holiday? Put on a cute dress and go out and have a good time—no S.O. required. Here are 10 fun, flowy, and form-flattering dresses perfect for Valentine’s Day. And did we mention they’re all under P2,000?
Sweetheart Mini Dress (P1,999) from Caoros
This dress from local brand Caoros is equal parts sweet and sexy. The sweetheart neckline and frilly straps give it a delicate, feminine touch while the asymmetrical hem will elongate your legs, making you look taller. It comes in a variety of colors—you can opt for one of the lighter ones like pink or white for a more innocent look, or go for a naughtier shade like red or black.
Bow Knitted Dress (P1,495) from Mango
The simple and elegant silhouette of this dress from Mango will flatter many body types. Plus, it’s got cute little details like buttons and a form-flattering bow that give it an extra charm. We recommend rocking some dainty necklaces above the just-low-enough neckline to emphasize your collar bone.
Cherie Dress (P1,450) from Sunday Sky
You’ll have jaws dropping when you enter a room in this silk dress from Sunday Sky. The gold color and ultra-flattering ruching are enough to put all eyes on you, but turn around and you’ll reveal the criss-cross low back—you'll turn heads when you leave the room, too!
Cowl Neck Mini Dress (P1,350) from Supre
You can't go wrong with an LBD like this one from Supre. It’ll effortlessly show off your curves without being skin tight (so you have more room to eat, of course). The flowy, lightweight fabric will follow your every move, creating a mysterious but enchanting effect.
Navy and White Stripe Knot Shift Dress (P1,795) from Dorothy Perkins
If you’re planning a more casual date with your S.O.—be it a picnic, a romantic stroll, or even just a cozy night at home—we recommend this comfy-but-stylish dress from Dorothy Perkins. Pair it with cute sandals or comfy sneakers and you’re good to go. That little knot on the front will add the subtlest touch of allure to your look.
Tie Knot Dress (P599) from Vera Clothing
We know Valentine’s isn’t always the happiest holiday for everyone out there, but instead of sulking, why not be your own sunshine with this bright yellow dress from Vera Clothing? The little bow on the bust area shows off just a bit of skin, giving this option a fun little twist.
Flounced Wrap Dress (P1,190) from H&M
What’s Valentine’s Day without a bright red dress? This one from H&M is perfect if you’re going all-out for V-Day—fancy dress, romantic dinner plans, the whole shebang. The wrapover skirt and frilly fabric will look good on any shape.
Cross Back Maxi Dress (P799) from Huxley
Instead of just hoping to receive a bouquet on V-Day, be your own floral arrangement with this maxi dress from Huxley. It may look like a pretty safe choice from the front, but a quick turn will show its gorgeous back (or lack thereof) that’ll have heads turning as you leave the room.
Short Belted Dress (P1,295) from Berhska
Just because it’s Valentine’s Day doesn’t mean you need to stick to classic looks. Try something a little edgier (but still form-flattering) like this belted dress from Bershka. The bright pink shade is a definite stand-out-from-the-crowd color, but still very much on-theme. You can dress it up with sleek heels or just throw on some sneakers for more casual settings.
Sequin Slip Dress (P1,299) from Something Borrowed
This dress from Something Borrowed can take you from dinner to drinks. The sequins on it will easily catch the light, following every move you make and effortlessly captivating your date.
