Get the Look: Valentine’s Day

Get the Look: Valentine’s Day Heading out for a romantic meal this Valentine’s day? Or perhaps you are off out for drinks and dancing with friends, or even spending the evening enjoying a film. However you choose to celebrate, be it with a group of friends or a special loved one, here’s some of our top picks to add a little romance to your look.

Pink is a key colour for SS17, so anything you buy in the shade will last you much longer than just Valentine’s Day. This throw on jacket would look equally fabulous over a dress or a pair of skinny jeans, and the punchy shade is sure to get you noticed, but pink is hot in any hue, from blush to fuchsia. If pink isn’t your thing, reach for a red version – strong, block colours are still set to be a huge trend for the spring so get in there early and turn up the colour!

A pretty dress is perfect for a dinner date, and the strong print on this one from Topshop makes is edgy, not girlie. Wear with ankle boots if the weather isn’t playing ball, or slip on some mules or tie up sandals for a dressier feel. Complete the look with simple jewellery, nodding to the Valentines theme with graphic heart shapes and love details. Finally, don’t forget a slick of lippy for the perfect Valentine’s pout.

Middle row: Bralet, Accessorize, Block heels, Dune, Pouch bag, Paperchase
Bottom row: Backpack, River Island, Socks, Accessorize, Gingham trousers, Next

For a more casual take on Valentines dressing, reach for a classic jacket and trouser combo. Gingham is another up and coming trend for the season and these tapered trousers could easily be dressed up or down. If you want to add a Valentines vibe to your accessories, choose a tote or pouch with a love-themed detail to add a little romance to your look. These cute sausage dog socks are a great way to bring a touch of sweetness to an everyday outfit – even if you’re just planning to hit the cinema.
