Never have to wonder what to buy for someone (or yourself!) again, thanks to The Knockturnal’s curated collection of our favorite styles, products, and collabs of 2022.
Whether you have a Valentine, galentine, or just want to celebrate self-love, this Valentine’s Day is one to dress up for. Why not celebrate 2022? Don’t look any further, we have the best dresses for every kind of V-Day below.
For the Luxe Date Night
Feel like a Greek goddess in this stunning olive-hued velvet gown by Miss Circle. The Yanis Olive Velvet Mesh Corset Gown boasts an asymmetrical design with a peekaboo mesh detail, and a side slit for a high-low detail ($159). We’re head over heels for its subtle regal vibes and twist on timeless Hollywood.
For Galentine’s Day Brunch
SOFIA The Label’s Bella Frill Playsuit in pink and violet floral ($352) has the perfect playful ruffle detail on the neckline and hem to have fun in. Let’s be real, a happy outfit can make us all happy for the day! Toast some champagne and have fun with your gal pals.
For the Classic Valentine’s Day Ball
Miss Circle’s Zayda Red High Slit Corset Satin Gown ($195) can either be worn off-the-shoulder or straight up, and we can’t get enough of the inner boning and intricate design that both holds us in (where we need it!) and makes everything look smooth AF. It’s also perfect for Valentine’s Day with a stunning red hue.
For a Steamy Club Party
Step aside standard LBD, there’s a new little black dress in town– with a major twist. Thanks to Heiress Beverly Hills, our wardrobe has stepped up a notch for date night with the Embellish Crystal Lined Mini Dress ($168). With a see-through cutout and a crystal-trimmed bust, cutoff sleeves, and torso, it’s safe to say we’re dripping in (faux) diamonds. There’s nothing that will boost your confidence more than strutting your stuff up in the club in this stunner.
For a Beach Celebration
Ready to pack your bags for Miami and beat the winter weather? Well, don’t forget the little green dress you need to feel amazing. The Felis Green Lace-Up Strappy Ruched Mesh Dress ($149) is slinky, sexy, and ruched in all the right places. Who said Valentine’s Day needs to only be pink and red?
For the Opera Date
It’s all about the subtle ruching with Nocturne’s simple yet iconic LBD. The V-Neck Midi Dress ($161) has both a front and a back V-neck, plus a hidden in-seam back zip. It’s subtle, it’s classy, and it’s ready for date night.
For a Romantic Picnic
If you are blessed to live where the sun still shines in February, then you need to embrace it! We are totally in love with the Terra Dress by Daze Dayz ($178), which is perfect for a rom-com style outdoors picnic to celebrate V-Day. The midi dress boasts a vintage flower pattern in a lush, rich terra-cotta color. The square front and slightly ruched neckline beautifully complements the silhouette, and we truly just can’t get enough.
Accessorize with a Soraya Hennessy woven bag for an effortless aesthetic. The brand is synonymous with sustainable practices, and each bag is handwoven by Wayuu female artisans with a mission to empower entrepreneurship, education, and innovation. Per Wayuu tradition, the woven mochila is a deeply personal process, passed down from generations to generations. Each bag is uniquely crafted with bamboo and gold handles, acrylic chains, and hidden pockets for your personal belongings. Venezuelan-born Soraya founded the eponymous brand in 2016.
We love the Mini Pink Bolero handmade crochet bucket bag with a pearl handle ($185). Or opt for a more festive style with the Love Is in the Air Tote Shopper ($350) in lilac. Better yet, the purse has magnetic tabs and is made out of cotton!
For the Adulting With a Twist Party
YG Collection’s Kim Mesh Dress ($90) feels fresh, current, and trendy in the most couture way possible. The gown fully outlines the body in artistic see-through stripes, culminating on the torso. It’s also double layered so don’t worry about any wardrobe malfunctions, but the dress is thin enough to easily layer under anything else for a very futuristic vibe. It’s an elevated update for any wardrobe, and you’ll definitely be the best dressed in any room.
For Dinner to Drinks
Turn up with Miss Circle’s Flattery Red Long Sleeve Blazer Dress in the most perfect shade of red with a dash of orange ($159). It’s truly mixing business with pleasure.
For the Date Night In
Parisienne Et Alors’ Robineau Dress ($165) looks so stylish paired with flats, heels, sandals, sneakers, and yes, even slippers. Why not cook with your Valentine and spend the night in? The vintage-inspired geometric print looks good in any room — especially the kitchen!
For Trendy Bar-Hopping
Um, we’re FEELING ourselves in this string-up Black Ruched Cutout Midi Dress by Heiress Beverly Hills ($168). Dare we submit an audition tape to be the Kardashians’ new bestie (or Kanye GF) because this dress makes us a real smoke show, and we almost can’t Keep Up. Pop this hottie on for a impromptu photoshoot between bars.
And Don’t Forget…
How can you have a proper Valentine’s Day without a little smooch? Whether it’s a kiss on the cheek for a pal, or an all-out makeout sesh behind the DJ booth (what, we can dream!), no outfit is complete without Huda Beauty’s Liquid Matte Ultra-Comfort Transfer-Proof Lipstick ($20). We are seriously head over heels for the new collection, which boasts perfectly-named shades like Slaytina, Icon, Miss America, and First Class to remind you that at the end of the day, you’re always your own Valentine, through thick and thin.
Be flawless with the luxe collection, and even gift the adorable limited edition Valentine’s Day Liquid Matte Lipstick Mini Quad to your besties ($33) to sample an array of shades.
Smell divine with Kayali’s Eden Juicy Apple Parfum that transports you to a naughty paradise with top notes of juicy red apple, pink grapefruit, and lychee (starting at $25). The full-bodied fragrance encompasses berries, jasmine, and vanilla flower for a whimsical scent, while sensual musk and sugared moss add a slightly masculine vibe. It’ll definitely get you– and anyone around you– in the mood, we guarantee.
Get Your Drink On
Finally, toast to Valentine’s Day with the Haus Sampler Kit ($50). Fill your bar cart (come on, everyone needs a bar cart!) with the signature Haus apéritifs in delicious flavors like Lemon Lavender, Ginger Yuzu, New Fashioned, and Pomegranate Rosemary. Plus, the kit comes with cocktail recipes to make a Haus Spritz and instructions for how to best serve Haus on the rocks.
“We’re doing everything differently than corporate liquor – starting with ingredients,” the Haus team stated. “We source the highest quality fruits, herbs, and botanicals from trusted farmers and purveyors who supply Michelin-star restaurants.Our team blends every bottle at our warehouse in Sonoma County, and ships straight to you in packaging made from recycled materials.”
Better yet, Haus includes nutrition facts so you know exactly what you’re cheers’ing to. It’s the easiest (and funnest) way to get tipsy.
Pop some bubbly with Mumm Napa Rosé ($22) which not only is on theme for V-Day with its stunning shade of pink, but is also insanely delicious. Kicking off with a warm, soothing sweetness, the Brut Rosé has strawberry meets spice flavors, with undercurrents of cherry, vanilla, and crisp apple. Open for brunch, or pair with lighter meats for dinner, but either way, it’s a V-Day must have.
For a red, we love Campo Viejo Reserva ($15) which balances cherry, plum, and blackberry fruits with an oaky sensibility. Savor the clove, nutmeg, and vanilla warm note, while feeling a kick of the coconut and tartness of berries. The artistry of Rioja is also present in every bottle, using progressive winemaking techniques in the region.
Finish off your Valentine’s Day evening with Kenwood Six Ridges Pinot Noir ($23), hailing from California’s Russian River region. The Sonoma County gem is the perfect climate for the best Pinot Noir, and Kenwood Six Ridges is on the lighter side for the darker red, which we certainly appreciate to fully taste (and relish) every complex flavor.
