Valentine’s Day Fashion Blog

February 2022

With the glamour of holiday festivities behind us, the start of a new year can be a dreary couple of months that leave you feeling stuck in a style rut. So if you’re frantically looking for excuses to dress up, here’s a major one for you: Valentine’s Day! Even if you’re not a big fan of February the 14th romantically, it is a great time to celebrate all your loved ones, and rock a bold, flirty outfit.

Struggling to find the perfect Valentine’s Day look? Whether you are celebrating by going out for a fancy dinner with your partner, having a cosy night in with your friends or taking yourself on a nice walk to visit your favourite coffee shop, we’ve got lots of Valentine’s Day outfit inspiration here @forgeshopping So why not treat yourself to something new this Valentine’s Day?! (Rather than scrambling to pull together an ensemble a few hours before Valentine’s Day date night, you might as well let @josiesmithmedia help you plan ahead!)

This season, there are some lovely pastel pink hues and bright red tones available to shop. We’ve included some of our favourite pieces from retailers like Primark, JD Sports, Quiz and more. When it comes to makeup, grab your best red lipstick or gloss to finish off your look. Add a spritz of your chosen perfume (this Valentine’s Day we are obsessed with My Way by Giorgio Armani – featured in our last blog) and a generous helping of Elnett and you are ready to step out the door feeling your best – regardless of your relationship status or plans!
