What's Not To Love About Valentine's Day?

What’s not to love about February? The kids are back at school and new season trends are trickling through - the perfect excuse for feminine styling this Valentines Day or spoiling someone special with the gift of a style to love.

Nothing shouts feminine like draped silhouettes and floral print does. How fitting that this season's must-have Kimono is both of these and more. 
I love the Kimono firstly for it’s versatility. The Kimono is the perfect cross seasonal piece giving you that extra layer for warmth for alfresco dining on date night and a cover up for enjoying a cheeky savvy in the sun. Win win!
The kimono creates a soft layer of interest in your outfit without adding bulk while the wider sleeves drape softly off your arms creating movement with the longer hemline elegantly trailing behind you.

Why not experiment with print in a fun and flirty way with a printed culotte? Culottes are the skirt of the pant world (and what’s not to love about that swish factor!) while this season's Oriental floral print adds an elegant twist.
Find a colour in the print to match with a classy slide for the office then add a powerhouse pout and clutch to make a colourful statement on your Valentine's night out.

Speaking of statements, nothing wows the crowd like a statement earring does. It’s the perfect on-trend pop accessory if you are rocking something more classic this Valentine's Day like a little black dress or understated play suit.
Have fun with colour, size and texture. There is so much to choose from whether it be tassel, aztec, fiesta inspired or geometric. Just have fun with it. A girl can have too many earrings. Said no one, ever!

Guys, there is something about a man in a blazer. It dresses up your casual and tones down your smart and yes, we know it’s warm out which is why this season's linen blazer is the way to go. It’s the right weight (and very on trend) for smarter dressing in the warmer months. Team it with a good quality fitted tee and denim for a smart casual look or with a patterned shirt and dress pants for an edgier take on smarter dressing.

Style is all about having fun experimenting with trends but isn’t just limited to clothing and accessories. Hairstyles, makeup and fragrance are the finishing touches with your ‘signature fragrance’ being the icing on the cake. When choosing a new fragrance, consider notes that tell a story about who you are and leaves an impression when you walk by and the same can be done when choosing a fragrance for a loved one, carefully considering the personality you are buying for.

No matter where or how you are celebrating Valentines Day this week, remember it’s always nice to spoil special people in your life and also yourself.
