Trend of the week: Valentine’s Day romantic styles


Love is in the air and we dare you not to be seduced by the intoxicating charms of this season’s romantic styles. Think ruffles, frills and bubblegum pink; from decadent jacquard to off-duty denim. Whether it’s a heady fling or the real thing, we guarantee spring/summer’s whimsy will be an affair to remember.


Not into pink? Try complexion-enchancing coral instead.

Parlay the slogan trend with a cashmere Chinti & Parker LOVE sweater – luxe and lovely.

Too frou frou? Balance girlie ruffles with clean grown-up lines.

Show your affection for the Hitchcock heroine with a vintage-inspired tailoring in breathy pastels from Aideen Bodkin.
