4 Outfits For People Who Hate Valentine's Day

This year, February 14 falls on a Saturday. Weekends are already popular going-out nights, but tack on the holiday and the date is all but sure to be a reservation nightmare — the restaurants worth booking will be filled, and the best movie times already sold out. So, if planning ahead isn't in your wheelhouse, you may want to start reevaluating your evening. Instead of making it a big to-do — because it's Valentine's Day — there's always staying in. Which, really, has plenty of perks: You can Seamless all the Pinkberry, watch Adore on Netflix (seriously, just do it), and enjoy the lavender-infused bubble bath you've been meaning to take. To help sway your decision, we put together four cozy outfits for a romantic evening at home — S.O. not required.

 
Dive Into A New Book
There's little more stimulating than a book you literally cannot put down, whether it's of the Fifty Shades variety or something a little less bondage-y. Make sure your outfit is cozy (i.e., thermal knit dress, leggings, and reading glasses), as you might find yourself up until the wee hours of the morning. 
Tackle Your Netflix Queue
When isn't this a good idea? With the new February releases now available to watch, you'd best make sure your outfit is appropriate for lounging on the couch for the next 10 to 15 hours. We recommend an oversize cardigan, wispy romper, and knee-high socks for a warm-but-not-too-warm vibe. Pro tip: Coffee mugs are perfect for both beverage and ice cream afterward. 
Play (Big-Girl) Dress-Up
Grown-ups like to play dress up, too. (We're not alone in this, right?) Put on your fanciest slip and bathrobe, or try mixing and matching your everyday clothes for totally new outfits you haven't worn yet — it's fun but also a helpful styling exercise if you're succumbing to winter-wardrobe fatigue. 
Put Your Feet Up
Take a load off. It's the weekend, after all. Once you've adequately soaked in a luxurious bubble bath (which is candlelit, obviously), treat yourself to an at-home mani and pedi (in our updated tee-and-boxer outfit below). This should be done while simultaneously streaming the newest episodes of Downtown Abbey or catching up on How to Get Away With Murder . It's all your friends talk about.
