This Valentine’s Day, spoil the most important person of all – yourself! What better time to give yourself a little treat now that the new collections are launching in store.
Kelly Meade, PR Manager for Phase Eight here in London gives us her top 5 picks that she’d like to spoil herself with this February…
A favourite of our beautiful ambassador, English rose Sophie Ellis-Bextor – this rose print dress is the perfect Valentine’s date nightdress. No date? No problem – the figure sculpting cut and stunning bold floral pattern will be the perfect work to bar dress for cocktails with your best girl friends. Just team with simple metallic heels (or flats!) and a clutch bag and you’re ready to go.
The flat shoe has been in the limelight lately as more ladies say no to going home early because their dancing feet are sore and no to tottering round town in sky high heels they cannot walk in. These brogues are the perfect companion to pretty spring dresses, skinny jeans or tailored trousers without being too masculine thanks to the pretty light grey and pastel pink shades. The soft leather and small block heel will give your feet a well-earned break whilst keeping you chic and smart.
The problem with the launch of the new season collections is that our British weather doesn’t always allow for instant transition into floaty maxi dresses and short-sleeved t-shirts! Layering with light knitwear is the key to Spring dressing and this bright pink swing jumper will give a punchy update to that dark winter wardrobe. Just throw on with jeans for smart weekend wear or tuck into a plain black structured or pencil skirt for work.
Swimwear, in February? Yes bear with me here. This navy one piece is one of the most flattering pieces of swimwear I have ever owned and its classic colour and cut will never date. Whilst my summer holiday is long in the distance, I will be grateful come August when the stores are getting ready for Autumn and swimwear choice is limited. Plus, the accessorising opportunities are endless – accompany it with a chic floppy sunhat, striped sarong, straw beach bag… it’s so versatile and so chic.
A complete fantasy purchase but this time of year makes me envious of old school Hollywood glamour as celebrities take to the Oscars red carpet. If I get an invite (in my dreams), I’ll be wearing this dress from our premium eveningwear range Collection 8. It feels very Downton with a twenties inspired cut and shimmering bead and sequin detailing – it’s a dress with real wow factor.
