Buy your own valentine! FEMAIL picks out the best of the heart inspired style for embracing the seasonal trend
- Emily Monckton picked out a selection of items inspired by Valentine’s Day
- She took inspiration from Olivia Palermo and Amy Adams for the seasonal trend
- She suggests teaming girly accessories with masculine silhouettes
The heart print has had an upgrade — and just in time for Valentine’s Day.
The motif, usually deemed sickly-sweet, has gone from cringe to couture.
Designers such as Alessandra Rich and Gucci proved love is all around us by filling their catwalks with splashes of the kitsch pattern.
And the High Street has followed suit with ‘Love’ slogan jumpers and pink dresses with red trimmings. Try teaming girly accessories with masculine silhouettes — a heart-print neckerchief with an androgynous blazer, for example.
The key is to make your outfit look effortless.
This Thursday, don’t be afraid to stand out. Be brave and wear your heart on your sleeve. And shoes. And bag.
