7 Pretty Underpinnings for Your Valentine's Day Outfit

So you already have the perfect Valentine’s Day look all planned out, but now for the real question—what will you wear underneath? Whether you have the ultimate romantic evening planned with your SO, or you’re spending the day with your besties, picking up some cute new underpinnings is a great way to look and feel good from the inside out (even if you’re not expecting anyone to see it!) Read on to shop our favorite picks!

1. Long Line Push-Up Balconet Bra ($58 at Victoria’s Secret)

What would Valentine’s Day be without a little punch of pink? The pink lace overlay color of this bra is perfect for Valentine’s Day, but is subtle enough that it won’t make its presence known under a sheer date night look. Long line bras are also a great happy medium between a standard bustier and a regular bra—perfect if you don’t want a full bustier, but still want to feel extra special for the big day.

2. Vine Applique Triangle Bra ($30.32 at ASOS) and Thong ($15.16 at ASOS)

Calling all fashion-forward collegiettes! We’re found your V-Day lingerie pick. We love the way the pretty nude mesh and black floral details on this set look super chic and expensive (but are totally budget-friendly!) Bonus: bralette styles are way comfier than your average bra.

3. Dream Angels Lace Bustier ($58 at Victoria’s Secret)

Have an extra special date-night-in planned for Valentine’s Day? Go all out for the evening with a classic bustier in a sultry V-Day red color. It’s the perfect piece if you want to add extra oomph to your typical underpinnings.

4. Silence and Noise Alexis Strappy Bra ($34 at Urban Outfitters)

If you tend to reach for edgy pieces for your regular clothing, why not do the same for your Valentine’s Day lingerie? Treat yourself to this super cool strappy bralette in a bright pop of periwinkle if you want something that feels unique.

5. Fantasie ‘Allegra’ Underwire Balcony Bra ($76 at Nordstrom)

Even if you tend to be on the bustier side, you can still find lingerie that is both supportive and super beautiful. Proof? This pretty red all-over lace piece that still has the coverage and support you need, and comes in plenty of different sizes.

6. Satin Cami and Short Set ($52 at Victoria’s Secret)

Who says that you can’t look cute and flirty for girl's night in? Even if your Valentine’s Day plans are just rom-coms and (lots of) chocolate with your crew, treat yourself to a cute satin PJ set with lace accents, in a pretty color like lavender.

7. Eyelash Lace Bralet ($48 at Topshop) and Knickers ($20 at Topshop)

We love the demure, angelic vibe we’re getting from this pretty white set. The lace overlay will make you feel super pretty (whether you’re on a date or staying in!), but the simple white color ensures that it stays subtle and isn’t too over-the-top.

What will you be wearing under your V-Day look this year, collegiettes?
