VAMP UP YOUR VALENTINES:


My Pound and Pennies look for this edition is based on this season’s shade, White, and the celebration (or the commiseration for a few of us) of Valentines Day.


POUNDS:


Now don’t panic about feeling like a bride, this dress is simply stunning, and is this season’s must have, so embrace it! You never know, it might get him popping the question over your valentines meal. Just don’t wear this to your best friend’s wedding! COAST, House Of Fraser, Northampton. £395.00 www.coast-stores.com


PENNIES: MENSWEAR:


It is all about the three piece. BUT, mix and match. Whether it be a plain long sleeve buttoned top, or a shirt and tie, team this with a nice fi tted waistcoat before framing your upper half in a nice fi tted suit jacket. Plain trousers work best, with a little character being applied to your choice of shoe. My personal favourite is an unbuttoned long sleeve top, layered with a plain black waist-coat, and topped off with a tidy tweed jacket. Match this with some plain fi tted trousers, and a nice pair of vintage brogues (or sometimes I rock the Nikes), and you are there my friend!


LAYER LAYER LAYER.


It seems that this season for us guys is that the more layers we wear, the cooler we are deemed, and looking at the current forecast, I think that this will be an easy proposition to fulfi l.


MONOCHROME MADNESS


T is is a universal obsession this season, so men, embrace the stripe, the polkadot, the paisley and the checks, but don’t forget to choose a stripe or pattern that compliments your physique! (guidelines in ‘Violets are Black’ paragraph.)


LOUNGEWEAR


You will like this one… ‘LOUNGE’ is another big look for us this season. But rather than use this as an excuse to sit in your trackies, embrace it and show the women how it is done by investing in some loose fi tted trousers. A silk material is option but primarily the key for this look. Whether a pattern or plain fi nish, team this up with some trainers and jacket for a smart casual look.


Strapped for cash? Never fear, he will be picking up the bill anyhow, and for under £60, you have got yourself a dress which boasts THREE of this season’s must have fashion fi xes. T is is not only the shade of the season, but we have the use of the sheer fabric to create a sexy yet sophisticated layering of the dress, as well as incorporating that ever popular vintage crochet detailing. Done.

I HEART THIS LOOK.


I spoke with Make-Up Artist extrodinare Emma Shipley, and asked her for her Top-Tip this Valentines when it comes to fi nishing your look off with a fl awless face! “True love deserves a true Holywood glamour look. What better day to wear red lips than on the most romantic day of the year! To achieve this look, create a natural base.


Try to steer away from the powder foundation and stick to something more water based to create that glowing, fresh skin. Red luscious lips, rich in a true red colour. If your lips are a great shape, they will look amazing with a little liner and a matte stained look. If you are wanting to achieve a fuller pout, opt for a lip glaze over the top. For eyes, keep sheer and natural, and focus on the lashes. Add some individual lashes for some real glamour to a night out. Use a rosy pink blush to add a little colour (think of the blushed look you have when after a jog). Finish off with a highlighter on the cheekbones and under the brows!…Oh, and don’t forget the red nails!”
