On Valentine’s Day, the idea is usually "dress to impress". And while your date is likely to be impressed if you're in a dinner jacket or sport coat, nothing says "well put-together" like a full suit. If you want to really up the wow factor, we have the holiday suits that deliver. With all the fashion sense of a modern slim cut men's suit, they utilize outlandish graphic designs and bold colors that are sure to make anyone stand out! Try our heart suit to wear your heart on your sleeve...literally! If graphic hearts aren't quite your jam, we have bold pink and red suits or an all-white suit that will let you coordinate with your partner, with the décor, or even with that bouquet of flowers. You did remember to order the flowers, right?


Men's Valentine's Day Costumes You Probably Won't Wear on a Date

On the other side of dressing to impress, you have the Valentine’s Day costumes that are best described as "extra". Men do enjoy wearing funny costumes, and many of these will fit that bill. Surprise your sweetie with flowers and chocolates while dressed up in a realistic heart costume, or bring her some coffee in a Cupid costume. You could even be extra together by dressing like the King and Queen of Hearts! (You know you want to do it for the ‘Gram.) If you want your Valentine’s Day outfit to send a message, you can even take a heart costume and turn it into a DIY candy heart costume. That would be really sweet!


Spice Up Your Valentine's Day Looks With Men's Accessories

Maybe you already have a spiffy outfit picked out, but just want to add some pink or red to match the style of the day. Pop a pair of red suspenders over your black-on-black slacks and shirt and it will be just the right touch. Maybe a Cupid accessory kit can be your own way of showing how you feel. (It works for us!) With red and pink costume pieces, you can mix and match to add just the right amount of color to your Valentine’s Day clothes.

Guys might like to wear silly costumes, but that doesn’t mean that they need to have all the fun! While the heart costumes are technically unisex and can be worn by anyone, there are some Valentine's costumes meant more for the ladies. Have the cutest couples’ costume when you dress up as the Queen and King of Hearts, or wear Lydia’s iconic red wedding dress from Beetlejuice. We even have some risque costume choices, if you're looking to spice things up later in the day.
