Fifty shades of romance

By  |  1 Comment

ROMANCE is in the air — meaning it’s time to pull out some of your slinkiest outfits to honour Valentine’s Day.
Yes, I can already hear you groaning, possibly thinking either a) Valentine’s Day is a money making scam, b) Oh, god does this mean I have to put in extra effort? or, c) I really can’t be a***d.
However chances are, your thoughts are probably geared more towards the first two.
But nonetheless, Valentine’s Day provides the perfect excuse to make some effort and pull on some of our most show-stopping outfits.
After all, it’s nice every now and then to be a little high maintenance.
As everyone knows, red is possibly the most symbolic shade for Valentine’s, so why not wear your favourite rouge outfit and cultivate one of this season’s hottest trends at the same time.
Romantic shades of red and pink are the epitome of style this season. Just in time for Valentine’s, the unlikely combination of red and pink together have become hotter than the hues themselves.

For spring 2013, colour blocking is once again back with a vengeance, with clashing colour combos being at the forefront of fashion.
It might seem scary at first, however if worn correctly, pink and red can be simply gorgeous when worn together and will be sure to get you notices for all the right reasons.
However if you’re beginning to forsee your other half bursting out laughing at your attempt of wearing SJP-inspired colour blocking at your favourite restaurant, then a little red dress is a timeless Valentine’s option and can be modernised with all the right accessories.
A nude coloured shoe worn with red looks chic and classy for a daytime or evening look. Pair with a smart blazer jacket for a sexy look that isn’t too try hard.
But if you’re more of a LBD type of girl, this gorgeous assymetric dress from Debenhams Will look fabulous when worn with a red lip and your favourite heels. Think 50 shades of grey but far more demure.
So whether you love or loathe Valentine’s Day, there’s no denying that it’s just another great way to celebrate your fabulous dress sense. After all, all you need is fashion.
