Reviewers deem it "a holiday gem" and say the ultra-soft fabric is so comfortable they never want to take it off.

According to one shopper, this puff-sleeve blouse is the proper length for anyone looking for versatility. Wear on its own or tuck it into these boot-cut pants.

Available in four colors (including a matching Bordeaux), these corduroy pants are made in women's sizes 00 and extend up to women's plus 32. Featuring a high-waist design, this bell-bottom flares at the knee, and shoppers claim the "cut is perfect."

According to reviewers, this "fun and flirty" heel is ready-to-wear in seven shades (with hot pink being the obvious choice), all featuring the same 3 3/4 heel. The brooch embellishment on the toe strongly resembles Manolo Blahnik's Hangisi heel, and according to shoppers, "the more affordable version is equally as comfortable."

When it comes to foolproof Valentine's Day outfit ideas, Rachel Parcell's lace dress proves there's nothing wrong with an all-red ensemble.

Available in women's sizes XS to XL, this dress runs true to size, showcasing a figure-skimming silhouette that's paired to perfection with darling details such as puff sleeves and lacey material. Perfect for an intimate Galentine's dinner or lavish celebration out on the town, this dress will continue to stun when matched with these Kate Spade New York pumps.

Available in women's sizes 5 to 11, this satin-bow pump is ready in four different colors, including our pick, red. From the oversized bow, pointed-toe frontand adjustable ankle strap, we're confident this pump will make a stunning statement.

To enhance your legs, addWolford's semi-opaque tightswhich according to many shoppers, are worth every penny. Available in sizes small to XL, the velvet material is not only ultra-comfortable but perfect for the cold weather, adding an extra layer of warmth.

Finish this outfit with Kendra Scott's whimsical heart studs, etched in metal frames. The "fun little earrings" are not only a fan favorite but are perfect for the holiday season.

Strike a balance between comfy and chic with this two-piece loungewear set. Available in women's sizes small to 3XL, this crewneck top and matching drawstring pant is ready-to-wear in 30 different colors, with nearly 14,000 reviewers singing its praises.

One reviewer was left smitten over the luxurious supersoft fabric that was a step up from traditional sweatsuits; instead, the buttery-soft material made it elevated and versatile.

Kick this two-piece suit up a notch by pairing it with another Amazon best-seller, this lapel blazer. Obtainable in women's sizes XS to XXL, there are 18 shades to select from, all of which feature the same functional front pockets and spandex fit. Perfect for "dressing up outfits," almost 10,000 Amazon reviewers love how the "stretchier fit" worked with a handful of heavier pieces in their closets and looked far more expensive than it was.

For a crisp-clean finish, step into Reebok's retro-chic sneakers available in women's shoe sizes six to 11. Seal it with a kiss, literally, with the help of Baublebar's 18k earrings that make this a top-rated Valentine's Day outfit idea.

4. This classic button-up dress from Something Navy that's festiveenough

Make a statement into Something Navy's novelty striped dress available in women's sizes XXS to XXL. The button-up silhouette makes this dress easy to wear, while the drop shoulders and frayed fabric detailing on the neck and shoulders adds a chic and classic element that only adds to its appeal.

Step into these near-perfectly reviewed Sam Edelman pointed-toe boots. Available in women's shoe sizes 6 to 10.5, there are three colors to choose from, made from "supple suede" that reviewers couldn't get enough of, as well as a 2.75" flared block heel that provided "just the right amount of height."

Prepare to take a bow in Hutch's feminine tube top that's ready-to-wear in five colors and extended women's sizes from XS to 3XL. One reviewer said the spandex material provided "the right amount of stretch in all the right areas," while another loved how versatile it was style-wise.

Dress it up with a sleek tailored trouser or keep things casual with a skirt or pair of jeans like this pair by AGOLDE. Obtainable in women's sizes 23 to 32, the light Merit wash is particularly appealing due to its versatility. Reviewers loved how wearable the straight-leg style was and despite not "offering much stretch," this denim "fit like a dream."

Add some shimmer in shine to your look with the help of these Kelly & Katie heels. A complete döppleganger to Mach & Mach's embellished heels, this version features the same rhinestone-studded bow and padded footbed as its designer counterpart. Scoring a 4.8 out of 5-star rating, reviewers say, "these stylish, eye-catching heels are classy and super-comfortable."

Finish the look with these vibrant 14k gold hoop earrings with alternating rubies and diamonds that add just the right amount of color.

6. A two-toned jumpsuit from Anthropologie that packs a fashionable punch

The first thing Emily in Paris taught us: "more is more," and the second is that when you are mixing more than one over-the-top item with another, you need a common thread. Need an example? This Valentine's Day outfit idea.

Start with this jumpsuit by Hutch. Available in women's sizes 0 to 12, the adjustable bow-tie sleeves provide comfort and support, and reviewers love the two-toned red and pink bodice that is both "festive and fun," with the wide-leg silhouette equally as favored.

Stay consistent by adding this '80s-inspired jacket. Crafted from silk, this bead and sequin piece features multiple colors throughout, including the same pink and reds seen above. (See, consistent!).Between thefive-star rating from reviewers, decadent puff sleeve, and cropped fit, it's hard-pressed not to be sold.

YSL Beauty's semi-matte lipstick in No Way Back will make a simple statement with its intensely pigmented mauve shade, one of which that pairs to perfection with Brilliant Earth's gemstone earrings in Garnet.

Complete your outfit by stepping into Kelly & Katie's 3" heel. Available in black and cream, each shade features the same dual rhinestone straps that add just the right amount of shimmer and shine. Said to be "soft, stylish, and comfortable," reviewers were left smitten over this shoe.

7. This Anthropologie sweater and skirt available in plus-sizes

Are you having trouble finding a plus-size Valentine's Day outfit idea? Not anymore. Available in black or cream, this "absolutely adorable" heart mock neck sweater is ready-to-wear in women's regular and plus sizes ranging up to 3X.

The subtle puff sleeve and intricate hand-sewn hearts work are versatile enough where it can be dressed up or dressed down, contingent on what your Valentine's Day plans are. Either way, more than one reviewer says, "it was the most complimented sweater ever."

Pair your heart sweater with this cascading skirt. Obtainable in three shades— black, blush, and turquoise— it's offered in extended sizes up to 3X. Regardless of what shade you pick, every skirt features tiny white dots throughout, tiers of decadent ruffles and tulle that would make Carrie Bradshaw blush.

Elevate the look by adding a handful of dark pink accessories. We recommend these heart-shaped embellished earrings, as well as this fan-favorite padded headbandthat has a near-perfect rating among reviewers. So many shoppers loved how the thicker design provided comfort and support and "didn't heart behind their ears" when worn for long periods. Whereas a handful of reviewers went ahead and summed it up as "the holy grail of headbands."

Finally, step into these Marc Fisher booties to bring this look to life. With a five-star rating at DSW, this ankle boot features a shimmering upper that's available in three shades and a modern flared heel that takes this skirt to the next level.

Many shoppers said the "pink glitter bootie immediately pulled them in," with others supporting her and adding, it was "attention graving." One reviewer summed it up better than we could by saying these booties were "ready for the holidays!" Agreed.
