Trend of the week: Valentine's Day

VALENTINE'S DAY: Watch fashion turn head-over-heels, says Annemarie O'Connor.
Trend of the week: Valentine's Day


With Cupid’s arrow a mere day away, get set to experience the heady delights of this season’s ode to romance. Think sexy ruffles, wiggle skirts and throwback references – a time where courtship ruled supreme and style had its own.


Do grown-up ruffles with a nod to more neutral tones like navy and grey.

Tone down the coquettishness of pink with sharp cuts and uncluttered silhouettes.

Step back in time with top handle bags and almond toe block heels – this season’s nod to retro luxe.

Looking to turn heads? Try head-to-toe red!
