Five things you need to OWN now

Happy Valentine’s Day to all the little lovers out there. To enter into the swing of things and to celebrate the nauseous Hallmark holiday we are getting all pretty in pink. Rosey hues and vibrant fuchsias was the colour scheme for practically every designer this season. Balenciaga Valentino and Céline all partook, but don’t worry if designer threads aren’t in your budget, there’s plenty of blush to pick from on the highstreet too.

Preen/EDITION is hands down the best collaboration that Debenhams has to offer. Deisgned by the super talent Thornton Bragazzi, the line offers contemporary chic clothing, with a super on- trend twist.

the trousers

If there’s one thing you should spend a bit of money on, its tailoring. Nothing fits as well as a pair of immaculately cut trousers or a well tailored blazer. However, if you are looking for a quick fashion fix Penneys is the place to hit. These pastel pink pants have a bang of VB off them and are 100s of euro cheaper. What are you waiting for?

Lurid, pink and patent – sounds like a prop from a John Waters movie, but its actually an on trend accessory. For all you die hard all-black wearing lovers out there, a pop of pink arm candy never hurt anyone.

High heels that you can wear all day that won’t pinch – yes please! These cute courts use Insolia technology which redistributes your weight away from the balls of your feet, reducing pressure and increasing ankle stability, allowing you to wear your heels comfortably all day long.
