What To Wear For Valentine’s Day 2024: The Pre-Loved Fashion Guide

Fall in love with these pre-loved picks

Its critics may dismiss Valentine’s Day as just another marketing ploy, but there’s plenty to love about the festival of love. Whether you use it as an excuse to spend some quality time with your partner or decide to throw a Galentines dinner for your nearest and dearest, ultimately the day is about showing appreciation for the people we care about. Head over to eBay for a host of Valentine’s Day outfit ideas.


Date-Night Dress

Is your other half treating you to something special? Perhaps dinner at one of the capital’s most romantic restaurants? Now is the perfect time to invest in a timeless pre-loved date-night dress. You can’t go wrong with a classy LBD, whether that’s a chic maxi slip dress, a flattering sculpted number, or a minidress with puff sleeves (see the one we’ve picked out below). Alternatively, bring in some colour and get involved with the bows trend: we love this crepe de chine maxi from Rixo.

The Red Bag

Red is everywhere at the moment, and Valentine’s Day is the ideal time to give it a go. Don’t fancy going all-out? Dip your toe in the trend with an accessory, such as a stylish berry-hued bag. Our top picks come from Gucci and Fendi – both of which come with an authenticity guarantee, a new feature offered by eBay.

The Statement Shoe

Alternatively, nod to the red trend with a pair of statement shoes, perfect for bringing a bit of colour to an otherwise neutral outfit. Don a pair of heeled boots or some bejewelled flats for a night out, or, if you’re staying in with a bottle of vino, keep it casual with a colourful pair of trainers (some rouge slippers could even cut it, no judgement).

Lovey-Dovey Hearts

Be that Valentine’s cliché and throw some hearts into the mix. Hearts were big on the 2023 runways, tapping into the Y2K nostalgia and dopamine dressing trends, popping up as cut outs, patterns and patches. If you’re looking for something a little less on the nose, though, how about a heart accessory? Peruse eBay’s pre-loved and vintage jewellery section for a pair of heart-shaped earrings, a necklace or a bag.

Pyjamas

Planning to spend Valentine’s Day tucked up indoors with a film and a takeaway? Or hosting a Galentines movie night? If so, cosy attire is a must: a set of matching PJs will do the trick, better still if they’re as chic as these sets from Valentino and Derek Rose.
