Jane-Menn Cheong | DOLCE & GABBANA Printed Amore Midi Skirt
Probably inspired by Andy Warhol’s Campbell soup cans, I’ve never been much of a fan of Dolce & Gabbana until this popped up on my screen. The label that’s known to deliver over the top pieces, in the most Italian way possible – this skirt from their Spring/Summer 2018 collection, is something I’d want for Valentine’s Day. Although overtly literal for the occasion, it would definitely serve for a good laugh. Plus, don’t we all wish love came in a can with a forever expiration date?

Vikki Gitata | GUCCI GG Marmont Mini Velvet Bag
Bags are a girls’ best friend – second to shoes of course. I have never been a tote kind of girl – I prefer my bags chic and practical, and this Gucci Marmont hits all the right spots. The collection carries a variety of styles ranging from shoulder bags to crossbody bags each featuring the iconic GG logo, giving off old-school vibes. To be honest, any bag from this collection would make a great Valentine’s gift, but the bold red velvet stands out from the rest. In addition, the gold accents on the bag are timeless and are practical regardless the season.

Tania Zainuddin | ZARA Jacquard Skirt With Shimmer Detail
With or without a lover in hand, I think Valentine’s Day should still be a reason to dress to the nines. Keeping it modest and sophisticated with its length, the skirt teases just enough with a side-gathered slit. Its tight-fitted silhouette also compliments all shapes and sizes. Tuck in a silk cami, and you’re all set for a romantic dinner date for two. If you’re planning for a girls-only night out, pair this bold piece with a plain white tee and take those black stilettos out for a spin around town.

Andrew Ng | PULL & BEAR Faux Leather Jacket
I thought long and hard between this and a red striped blazer, but I eventually chose this red faux leather jacket. Fitting for both Valentine’s and Chinese New Year, this eye-catching leather jacket is bound to draw attention on the streets. For dinner, you’ll be serving some fresh looks.

Anussya Jayasimhan | LAURIE LEE ‘Make Me a Mixtape’ Biker Jacket
Leather jackets are everlasting pieces that have never been out of fashion. Not only versatile but badass, these statement pieces enhance bring forth a sense of confidence. This Brando style biker jacket with silver hardware and black lining that says “Make Me a Mixtape” isn’t only a statement piece but serves as inside joke between me and my Valentine. The idea of your Valentine customising and hand painting a leather jacket for you is the sweetest thing – but if he’s no Picasso, then these jackets are totally a great option to consider.
