Valentine’s Day falling on a weekday can make it tougher to go all out. But with a little creativity, you can put together a look that will take you from the conference room to the corner booth, without looking like you’ve been wearing the same shirt for nine hours straight.
We recommend keeping it smart-casual, but heavier on the “smart” side of things. A nice pair of dress pants, chinos, or other quality trousers paired with a button-down or a sweater will transition nicely from work to your date. If you want, you could also switch out your work jacket with something more nighttime after you leave the office. (Don’t worry. Your secret’s safe with us.)
