I love pretty much any excuse to buy a new outfit! And as soon as February 1st came I realized I needed to start thinking about Valentine’s Day! Also, did anyone else feel like January went by way too fast? Or is that just me?

I’ve seen some cute outfits on Instagram and Pinterest, but I was disappointed when I found out they were all pretty much over $100. I have a hard time justifying buying an outfit over $100 when I don’t think I’ll wear it often. So I took to Forever 21 and found the cutest dresses under $25 that will be perfect for your Valentine’s Day!

Velvet Shift Dress

I can’t believe this dress is under $10! Velvet is super trendy right now and I think this dress would be so cute on Valentine’s Day! I have a hard time spending money on trendier pieces – mainly because I don’t know how much use I’ll get out of them. But this outfit is a steal!

Lace-Up Off the Shoulder Dress

There might not be many sizes left, but this dress totally could double as a Valentine’s Day outfit and the perfect 80’s prom dress! I could totally see this outfit all over Instagram, and it’s less than $20!

Satin Cut-Out

Not gonna lie, I ended up buying this dress in three different colors! I feel like it is the perfect dress for the summer and I got it in this color, lavender and black. You can never go wrong with an LBD!

Floral Skater Dress

This dress is SO cute – and it’ll be perfect for spring and summer! Floral patterns were huge last year, and I can tell they’re going to be very popular this year too! This is a dress you can easily throw a jean jacket over and pair with your favorite converse sneakers!

Sheer Ruffle Wrap Dress

This sheer ruffle wrap dress is one of the few I’ll mention that was over $25, but it is so classic and chic! I love the ruffles and the subtle polka dots.

Stripe Ruffle Wrap Dress

This dress one is also over $25, but I love how elegant it is! My style is very classic and I love the ruffles – and the stripes would be very figure-flattering too!

Surplice Wrap Dress

I’m pretty sure I belong in a different era, but I just love timeless, elegant dresses! This is such a cute dress for a Valentine’s Day dinner and you can easily dress it up or dress it down. Plus it’ll be a great item to have for summer!

Polka Dot Wrap Dress

I just bought this dress mainly to help my closet transition from Winter to Spring. I can easily see myself wearing this to the beach in the summer, and it’s a nice alternative to wear on Valentine’s Day that’s not red or pink!

Those were just a few of my faves, but there are SO many great (and affordable) options for your Valentine’s Day on Forever 21’s website!
