Key trend: Metallics
How to style: If you were planning to take your better half on a fancy night out, you need to bring your A-game. Steal the show by adding a touch of metallics to your look. You can opt for a metallic suit or go for a simpler look by wearing a metallic blazer, and pairing it with simpler neutrals with earthy tones.

Inspired by: Tom Holland
Key trend: Casuals
How to style: Tom Holland is known for keeping it cool. The boy-next-door look is his ultimate vibe and what better than casual fits for your movie date? Your favourite pair of jeans and a plain T-shirt always works. To strengthen your style game, you could try a cheeky printed T-shirt and some chinos. It’s a charming move that will help you win a few points with your date, just like Holland worked it out with Zendaya.
Inspired by: David Beckham
Key trend: Suits
How to style: If you’re planning on a Valentine’s Day soiree-to-remember, a suit is in order. We all know, no one does a well-fitted suit like David Beckham. A slim-cut light suit and a white shirt will ensure your date stays right by your side all night long. You could grab a pair of eyewear to complete the look.
Inspired by: Harry Styles
Key trend: Sweater vests and printed shirts
How to style: When it comes to a lazy lunch, there’s a variety of style options to try out. Take some hints from Harry Styles, who has been known for his maximalism, grandpa chic style, and everything colourful. Styles, who just went on his Love On Tour last year, flaunted numerous outfits, everything from sheer graphic shirts to loose suiting. To make your lunch date cute, you can take some inspiration from the singer by adding printed shirts along with trousers and a pair of sneakers. Another way to amp up would be wearing a sweater vest along with a sleek white shirt folded in half along with some khakis.
Inspired by: A$AP Rocky
Key trend: Pearl necklaces and graphic sweatshirts
How to style: Fashion Killa A$AP Rocky has shown us that he doesn’t come to play while trying out trends. The Harlem rapper is known for his flair for mixing streetwear with high-end designer gear. If you have planned out to grab a few drinks in your hood, it doesn’t require much thought, even on V-Day. A pair of dark jeans and boots look polished enough for nighttime, and a cosy sweatshirt keeps the low-key vibe alive. To add Rocky’s touch, add a layer of pearl necklace or chunky chains for some showoff.
Inspired by: Kanye West
Key trend: Loungewear
How to style: If the plan is to stay in watching your favourite movies and order in take out, the key is to dress down. But hey, that doesn’t have to be boring. Taking some comfy inspiration from Kanye West, you can always tone it down by wearing some of the best neutral-toned sweats and pants. If you want to make it bold, wear loud colours such as cobalt blue, bright orange, and neon hoodies along with boxers or co-ord set pants.
