Valentine's Day 2018 - Top Fashion Picks for Her This Valentine's
Posted on February 09 2018
Love is in the air, Valentine’s Day is nearly here – but when it comes to finding that perfect gift, sometimes we need a little helping hand.
Before you run out and buy the proverbial teddy and bunch of roses, why don’t you get her something she really wants.
We’ve compiled a list of top fashion picks, perfect for girlfriends, besties and daughters this time of year.
To top it off, we’ve gone the extra mile and included tips to make the typical gifts (jewellery, shoes, handbags and makeup) extra meaningful and spectacularly on trend!
Valentine’s Day comes with high expectations when it comes to jewellery which often puts men off buying anything unless it’s that special engagement ring.
We believe all girls love a bit of jewellery and it’s one of the most romantic gifts to receive. But romance doesn’t have to come in the form of a proposal and who wants a Valentine’s Day that is void of anything sparkly?
If a ring is your thing, but you’re not quite ready for that commitment, we’d recommend stacker rings. They are a great way to go if you want to give someone something meaningful without popping the question.
They can come in a variety of shapes and metals and some even come with charms. The types of rings you get can range from small subtle pieces to big, bejewelled statement pieces, meaning there’s something out there for everyone.
If you want to avoid rings for fingers, there’s a new hot topic that comes in a similar shape: hoop earrings. You might have thought we left them in the 90s and 00s but trust us, they’re back!
A pair of petite ones for day to day wearing, or some big ones for nights out with the girls, these statement hoops are just the kind of ring everybody wants!
Meanwhile, if you’re trying to avoid rings altogether, there’s one more way to add a slice of romance to jewellery and it has a traditional twang to it, making it that bit more special. We’re talking about locket necklaces.
They are a great way of adding a personal and romantic touch to a gift. Including a photo of you together or with your loved ones can take an average necklace from zero to hero.
All girls love their handbags, there’s no denying it. There’s a bag out there for everybody and there is nothing we love more than to have a nice, sparkly new handbag.
This time of year, there are lots of pastel shades coming in with spring, so a pretty pastel blue satchel or a baby pink tote could really brighten someone’s day.
Meanwhile, bejewelled clutches are another perfect way to give a girl a bit of something sparkly without any awkward questions about engagement!
And if your loved one is a bit of a tom boy or a work-aholic, the still need a bag! Check out the latest range of rucksacks, bucket bags and oversized bags too.
Whoever said diamonds are a girl’s best friend didn’t have access to a decent shoe boutique. It is common knowledge that a pair of shoes changed Cinderella’s life, so make somebody’s fairy tale come true and give them the glass slippers they’ve been dreaming of.
If you’ve prepared a date night, get some sparkly heels or sandals for her to wear. Planning on staying in? Not a problem. Some cosy slippers, with a luxurious lining are perfect for what feels like those never ending winter nights and a great way to say I love you.
Over the last two years, the fashion industry has seen a surge in designer makeup sales, with female influencers and social media stars like Kylie Jenner and Zoella jumping on the band wagon and selling their own branded makeup for megabucks.
It’s for sure that no woman’s makeup collection is complete without a pretty eye shadow palette and is there a better time to add some pinks and reds to that collection than Valentine’s Day? We think not.
