Vintage Romance

This look is all about subtle elegance - perfect for a romantic Valentine's evening with your sweetheart. This gorgeous dusty rose coloured dress is accented by the classic silver and pearl accessories, and gives a nod to the 60's with the leopard print faux fur coat. These unusual semi-starburst earrings also bring a hint of mid-century style to the look, while the adorable heart block heels give it a contemporary edge - the perfect all rounder!

Date Idea: The old classic; dinner and a movie.
Drift back in time to 1970's New York and opt for the highly acclaimed new film, If Beale Street Could Talk. Due to be released in time for Valentine's Day, the film looks set to be full of beautiful filmography that tells a heart-wrenching story. Watch the trailer here.

Galentine's Day

This look is all about confidence, colour and fun! If you're flying solo this Valentine's, arrange a night out with the girls and dress in this bold 60's style shift dress to bring out your playful edge. Hang the keys to your heart around your neck and who knows what the day may bring!

Date Idea: Cocktails with your favourites
Escape the busy restaurants and skip straight to the cocktails with your best girls. Or don your PJs and bring the bar home with these fab recipes for festive homemade cocktails. My particular favourites on this list being Love Potion, Something (Sweet)Heart and Raspberry Kiss. (Images below).

Date Night

For a smokin' date night with the one you love, opt for this chic wiggle dress and collection of crimson-toned accessories. Crushed velvet and gold jewellery bring grandeur and charm to this outfit, while the sequin-tassled shoes bring out a cheekier side! Reveal your curves in this form-fitting dress from underneath the sultry cape, as you step in from the cold and begin to heat up...

Date Idea: Catch a Cabaret Show with your Beaux
Venture into the big city to see the ultimate retro glamour show - burlesque! Proud Cabaret City in London is showing Love in the City on Valentine's night and all the following weekend, and judging by their photos of previous shows, it's going to be full of surprises!

So the only thing left is to ask the question - which outfit would you choose?

Happy Valentine's Day all!
