Rent the Runway

No matter what your plans are for Valentine’s Day, dressing for the occasion is half the fun of this holiday. Cherry red and bubblegum pink lovers, this is your time to shine. Aside from the classic bold colors (or as we like to think of them, the best Starburst flavors), Valentine’s Day outfits are all about the romance—silky fabrics, billowing sleeves, and dreamy silhouettes are the perfect trends to channel your romantic energy. If you’re sans-lover this Valentine’s Day (same, tbh), then the holiday is about showing some extra love to your friends, family, and self. We found nine Valentine’s Day outfits perfect for every scenario, from a night out on the town to a cozy night in with your besties.

If you don’t want to invest in a red and pink outfit just for Valentine’s Day but love a good theme (guilty), Rent the Runway (RTR) has got you covered.

With 742 designer items selected specifically for Valentine’s Day available to rent, you can choose the perfect V-Day outfit for a seriously slashed price on Rent the Runway.

RTR offers rentals of hundreds of big-name brand pieces at a fraction of the retail price, so you can wear something you’d typically never splurge on. The best part of Rent the Runway is that it allows you to play around with fashion choices you wouldn’t typically dip your toes into when laying down cash on big-ticket items. So, if you’ve been eager to try the puff-sleeve trend but are too nervous to take the plunge into purchasing, we’ve found your solution. Shop our favorite Valentine's Day outfits from Rent the Runway below.
