13 Dresses to Wear (and Shop!) in February for Valentine’s Day, Fashion Month, and Beyond

No matter the occasion or season, there are always plenty of opportunities to wear a dress, and of course, an overwhelming amount of options from which to pick. And since there really is no bad time of year to invest in one, we’ve put together a monthly edit of our favorite dresses you can shop right now.


Between the start of fashion month to Valentine’s Day, February has a lot to offer despite being the shortest month of the year. And no matter which way the season unfolds, there are plenty of dresses to wear that could satisfy both an early spring or long winter.

One thing’s for certain; we’re seeing a handful of dresses that satisfy the modern romance trend this month. From sweet vintage-inspired slips to vintage chintzy floral prints, you can now dress like a modern-day member of your favorite high society TV shows. We’ve also thrown in a few lovely date night-worthy dresses to consider if you have plans come February 14. And despite it being the month for love, if puff sleeves and ruffles aren’t for you, there’s a number of more minimalist wintertime staples like long-sleeved knits and turtleneck midis to get you through the month ahead.

Shop all of that and more from The Get’s February dress edit, below.

The Day to Nightshirt

You can dress from day to night, but what about the other way around? We feel that this menswear-inspired silk nightdress can and should be worn beyond the bedroom. Its blousey necktie and vertical stripes would wear perfectly over a pair of jeans and ballet flats.
