Date-night dressing takes on an even more romantic tone with Valentine’s Day around the corner. While you might be tempted to reach for red, consider the elegance of classic black with a touch of lace. Another Tomorrow’s wool jacket, which is available only at NET-A-PORTER, is perfect for a weeknight dinner reservation. The minimal design is endlessly versatile, while the merino wool – which is traceable to the brand’s partner farm – is guaranteed to keep you warm. Slip it over Anine Bing’s ‘Amina’ lace bra for a sensual hint of lace, then finish the look with Agolde’s classic blue jeans and the playful sparkle of Mach & Mach’s crystal-embellished pumps.

For the epitome of effortless elegance, look to Victoria Beckham’s slinky, knitted gold maxi. Sabina Khan, NET-A-PORTER’s senior fashion assistant, describes it as her ideal dress for celebrating love. “With spring coming up and wedding season quickly approaching, I like to go for a maxi-length dress with an interesting color or texture that is still pared back and minimal,” she says. “The column silhouette of this metallic dress is undeniably elegant. I would pair it with strappy high-heeled sandals to feel tall and refined, then finish the look with a minimal bag, such as Jimmy Choo’s ‘Bonny’ clutch, and some fine jewelry. The gold hue and gilded shimmer of the dress are also sure to complement a lovely tan – which I will hopefully have by then…”

Bouquets of roses are always a fine idea, but why not gift a loved one a Valentine’s present that will last for many years to come? Bottega Veneta’s leather sandals, for example, make a divine addition to any shoe lover’s closet. The angular leather straps beautifully frame the foot, and the striking shade of crimson carries a similar dynamism to a bold swipe of lipstick – self-gifting is actively encouraged, too. Meanwhile, Soho Home’s set of four champagne coupes is a thoughtful gift for your favorite couple, and a beloved friend would adore Loewe Home Scents’ chic red ‘Tomato Leaves’ candle, which will fill a room with a fresh, heady fragrance.
