We've done it! The seemingly year-long month of January is finally over, and we've made it to February. With that comes longer evenings (I can almost taste those summer evening cocktails), dreamy spring outfits, and whether you love it or hate it, Valentine's Day.
We're definitely not saying winter fashion is boring, but it can be difficult to think beyond 'what's my warmest coat and can I get away with a pair of leggings underneath these jeans' when temperatures are hitting single digits.
Whether you're planning a romantic date, or Galentine’s drinks with your besties, Valentine’s Day is the perfect opportunity to dust off the dregs of winter and start thinking glamour once again!
It's important to feel your best on Valentine's Day, and whether that means going all out with your glitziest dress or keeping it casual with jeans and a cosy sweater, we have you covered with our latest arrivals!
Table for Two: The Candlelit Dinner
We may all be a little out of practice putting together a dressy outfit, and if a dinner date is on the cards this Valentine's, you might be worrying about the dress code. Don't know whether to dress up or dress down? In our experience you can never go wrong with a midi dress and heels. We're loving the stunning Eve Love Vision midi dress. The pink shade is perfect for Valentine’s Day and the satin fabric drapes beautifully when worn for a super flattering fit.
Another option is this dreamy springtime midi. Green is going to be a massive colour for SS23, and the cute heart pattern is a subtle nod to the occasion without going too overboard.
The OG: Classic Cocktails
It's safe to say that sipping a Pornstar Martini in a vibey cocktail bar is the perfect plan for any occasion. It's also the perfect excuse to get dressed up to the nines in the Tixi Rose Dress. The flowy material and floral print throughout give it a flirty, romantic vibe, while the soft viscose material means it's extremely flattering on the waist. You'll be looking and feeling your best!
The Galentine's Brunch
Celebrated on February 13th, it's possible that Galentine's Day has become even more highly anticipated than its romantic counterpart. It's a day for celebrating friendship and what better way than a glam brunch with our best platonic pals? For this one, we've gone with the uniform of every girls outing ever: jeans and a nice top. The Margot Blouse features a mesh design that adds a daring, dressy touch to an otherwise classic style, while the polka dots add a fun pop of colour.
If you're going for a more low-key vibe, the Idillique cardigan is the perfect springtime transitional piece. This cosy knit comes in a gorgeous bright blue and features a deep v-neck . Wear open with a simple white tee or closed on its own for a more daring look.
Keeping it Cas'
If going all out for Valentine’s Day just isn't your style and you're opting for a more low-key celebration, we've still got you covered. Whether you're nipping down to the local for a few drinks or lounging on the couch with Netflix and a takeaway, there's no reason you can’t combine both style and comfort.
You'll be sure to stand out in our new Motif Cardigan. We love the bright eye-catching colours and the print is pretty spot on for the day that’s in it! Pair with your favourite blue jeans and add a crisp white shirt for a cosy, effortless look!
