Prepping for Valentine’s Day can involve a certain amount of anxiety about what to wear, whether a reservation calls for a stricter dress code, and so forth — or perhaps you just want to put in the extra effort. So we scoured the internet to find a range of romantic dresses on sale — from slip dresses and minis to modest wrap options and stylish ankle-grazers — to wear for the occasion. Note: these all skew on the summery side, since the day does call for some skin, so you’ll need at least a cardigan on top (and maybe a pair of tights) to avoid shivering your way through the night. Below, some of our favorites at every price point.
