How the Heart has Influenced Fashion.
No one can tell you the extent that the heart has had on influencing fashion but the actual shape, the “heart” has certainly had a massive impact on every aspect of the fashion industry from jewellery to clothing, accessories, and perhaps the most obvious lingerie.
Jewellery is the most important gift for women and some men and it goes without saying that Tiffany’s is the place o go for great (at times affordable) jewellery. This Silver heart, from the traditional Return To Tiffany collection is a winner every time. Already got the heart necklace? Tiffany offers the heart pendant in earrings, and bracelets as well and with a variety of closures. This piece in particular runs you around $250.00 in silver which is sure to fit any Valentines Day budget.
One of the most sexy elements of women’s wear is their shoes and most men will not disagree. In the spirit of Valentines Day splurge on these Alexander McQueen satin pups with a heart shaped peep toe cut out. Your Valentine is sure to think they are as hot as they are festive.
But if you are subscribing to accessories with heart on them or cut out of them, why not buy an accessory shaped like the meaningful symbol? This Marc by Marc Jacobs handbag is altogether cute and has the potential to transcend Valentines day because it has the rough pebbled leather and the brass hardware. This bag will nab you a Valentine for sure!
Since Kate Middleton got married the entire world has been hat cray-cray and that is because they really have their place. When talking about hats Philip Treacy’s name always comes up and as such we have included one of his hats, that Kate Middleton wore, that also has a heart on it! How perfect!
To avoid being tacky I will leave out heart shaped, printed, or cutout clothing and skip right to what the most of the men are here for anyway… the lingerie. And who better to model lingerie with hearts on it than… (if you were going to say your wife I commend you but on the catwalks it would be) The Victoria’s Secret Angels! Yes no one can compare to their fierce bodies but that may be because they only consume dust. Regardless… the VS lingerie with hearts fits well into our heart themed V-Day post and will surely inspire you to pick some up for that woman in your life.
Happy Valentines Day and long live the heart!
