Valentines or Galentines


With Valentine’s Day looming, lots of you are on the lookout for a killer red dress.  There are so many styles out there, from plain to printed, bodycon to skater, midi to mini – you are bound to find something that you will fall in love with (other than your partner) for Valentine’s!  Red Lace is a particular favourite of mine, although sometimes depending on the style you might find that a simpler shape much more appealing.

Red can be teamed up with a variety of colours, such as traditional black, navy or grey, or a nude shoe will also brighten up red.  Keep accessories to a minimum if you are choosing a red lace dress, but you can be more daring with more decorated pieces if you are choosing a plainer style.

Next have a nice selection of red at the moment, and you could try the Jessica Wright bodycon with front zip if you wanted a plainer more streamlined look.  Lipsy have an alternative with some nice applique to the sides and front.  For those heading out on to a formal event you could try the Jessica Wright lace maxi for added oomph.

Boohoo have very reasonable looks at the moment to incorporate a red dress at affordable prices.   The Ana Off the Shoulder dress is a knock-out look in figure skimming bodycon, or if you prefer a skater style the Boutique Lisa dress would be stunning.

ASOS have a fine selection of red currently – with the Vesper Ronnie Pencil dress reduced at the moment- this dress offers a classic pencil skirt, but with a black lace peplum giving an alternative to plain red.  Closet also have a lovely red pencil dress but with added cap sleeves as a cover-up and not so revealing.

Missguided have outdone themselves in the Red Departments this month, with styles and shapes to suit all ages and sizes.  In particular, the red lace high neck midi is just gorgeous, or if you fancy some cut-outs and can carry it off then the Crepe Sleeveless midi is just divine.

Topshop also have a wide variety of styles, and if you are conscious in the tummy area, they have a lovely wrap skirt version which is very pretty and elegant.

So- if you are planning a romantic Valentine’s night, or a fun Galentine’s night with your girls, then you are sure to be a knock-out in any of those styles.  Have fun ladies x
