The 14th of February marks the date when loves spurts forth in the air in larger-than-life proportions—as the Romans initiated it to be a much celebrated fertility festival in the earlier days. Valentine’s Day is commemorated in a number of ways, some with fancy chocolates and roses, several through romantic dinners out or at home, while sweet and sexy gifts get swapped in a frenzied manner amidst jostling hearts. Oftentimes though, St. Valentine’s Day becomes women’s day as the love-laced female population scramble about in a mad whirl in search of the perfect ensemble to wow their men. With the red mark on the calendar getting closer and nearer, a little valentine fashion guideline won’t hurt.
Set The Tone With Calvin Klein
Strictly for the lovers, a whole list of sultry teddies is up for grabs in this season of hearts, starting with Calvin Klein’s underwear Kyoto lace teddy, and envy lace suspenders, aptly crafted with the passionate shade of red. A vast array of sexy lingerie scatters around in this time of the year including flirty and frilly skirted thongs of candied colors which embodies the right tone of allure minus the crudity of some of its contemporaries; silk shorties which reveal less yet exude femininity all the same, especially with leopard prints and cherry ribbons; wrap, lace, and open teddies, or a combination of the three, are also famous under garments that spells love.
Stand Tall And Sexy With Christian Louboutin
Christian Louboutin is by far the designer to most capture the sensuality of a woman’s touch in his intricately crafted stilettos. His sheer mesh and leather boots with a peep-toe and heel cut-out are faultless when paired with lingerie—as the suede lace-up fronts allow bare legs to sparkle with perfection.
Ignite The Senses With Victoria Secret
Victoria’s Secret is the brand to beat in regards to pulling every aspect of coquettishness out of a hat and Valentine 2011 brings no fail to that accolade. The women’s label has come up with a “Tease for Two” collection which further enhances the art of seduction with its Vanilla Powder Edible Shimmer Powder, Kissable Massage Oil and Lotion, and a current favorite, the Edible Body Icing in midnight chocolate.
Walk Fabulous Carrying Gucci
Single ladies should not skip this holiday of hearts; in fact, it is advised for such independent females to join in among the festive, romantic mood that Valentine’s Day fetches. In a night out with friends and other preferred company, a great deal of Valentine accessories can be employed. If willing to max out a credit card and splurge on high-end labels, Gucci’s Funky yet Romantic Collection specifically meant for this fete offers a vast selection of bags, outfits, and shoes. Topping the list is their white and wood-brown hand bag equipped with a similar wallet, with the brand’s trademark symbol interlocked as hearts printed all over. Of an analogous pattern are its 100% silk twill scarf, ballerina flats with red trimmings, and a coin purse shaped like a star.
More valentine hand bag splurges are in store with Valentino’s uber-red Premier Hobo bag with a huge bow as the focal attraction, Lulu Guiness’ heart-shaped purses, a purple clutch by Marc Jacobs amassed with countless heart cutouts, and Louis Vuitton’s eye-catching Valentine handbag. Aside from these, sunglasses paying homage to the saint of love are also hot for this season; a 1980s inspired pink heart sunglasses named the “Heartbreaker”, Vogue’s chic vintage shades, and Ray Ban’s classic aviator sun glasses in a gentle rose shade, are fashion experts’ top picks.
Walk The Walk With Nike's Valentine Collection
Teeny boppers and the young at heart are also in for a treat as two hip and funky brand choices unveiled their designs for February’s amorous festivity. Nike’s valentine collection 2011 reveals numerous options of scarlet-and-pink infused women’s foot wear and Converse Collection’s high-cut sneakers printed with love messages in crimson, are both adequately stating their amorous affections to the love-filled day that is Valentine’s, just as the young and the old, the single and the unavailable, men and women, and countless individuals from the whole span of the globe, are.
