Roses are red, violets are blue…
Valentines Day has nearly arrived. It’s a time for romance, love and all things pink and also a day that will make you swoon with romantic expectations, or run for the hills with a tub of ice cream. However, it is an excuse for some cheeky Valentine’s themed shopping and who isn’t in love with the idea of that?
For the loved up ladies there are plenty of date worthy outfits with a romantic twist. Powder pink and dreamy cream tones make sure that love is in the air, teamed with lace for a sensual statement. The high street has fallen for hearts – they are on buckles, belts and bags making the shops a loved-up lair.
Heart print tights pop up everywhere, some dotted all over or in a suspender style line. They could be worn to spice up your daytime attire or to compliment a party dress. Accessorize is smitten with love themed jewellery using the word on necklaces and rings in a sweet handwriting style. They also have heart shaped bags to carry your daytime essentials or your pennies at party time, spreading the love all day long.
If you are planning a night of films, wine and lots of chocolate with your friends then make sure you get some love themed munch. John Lewis has a yummy selection of heart iced cookies and pink jelly beans to enjoy. And if you want a cuddle in front of a film with someone who won’t pinch your nibbles then your dreams have come true as you can knit your own perfect boyfriend, Topshop saves the day again.
And boys, don’t think you can get away with not looking pretty in pink, show your love for Valentine’s fashion with some kiss-stamped boxers or heart print socks.
Embrace the romance this February with a Valentine’s wardrobe that gives a little love.
