WITH Valentine's Day just around the corner, Cupid will no doubt be readying his arrows from above. Here is how to take this season's fashion trends and incorporate them into the perfect date outfit.

Dinner and drinks

Why not try a new cuisine or find a rooftop bar with a view to make this meal a special celebration? SS17 represents trends that coincide with Valentine's Day. Pink is the colour of the moment and has connotations of love. Wear a top with detailed shoulders and pair it with a leather A-line skirt. If you want a one-piece outfit, lace and sheer fabrics will add interest to a plain-silhouette dress and flirty heels.

Comedy club night

With laughter often the key to joint happiness, a casual date at the comedy club may be just the treat. Take inspiration from current street style and tuck a slogan tee into a pair of trousers in this season's beloved print - the stripe. Kitten heels are the chosen height of designers. It is a shoe that epitomises smart casual.

Beach picnic

Bonfires, waves and wicker baskets filled with food are perfect for a Valentine's date for nature lovers. Being outdoors on a balmy evening is the picture of romance. Bralettes are back this season and can be worn with high-waisted full-length skirts, reminiscent of festival style and young love.
