What are you wearing this Valentine's Day?

Valentine’s Day isn’t just about candle-lit dinners anymore . So, whether you’re scheduling a game streaming date, or a staycation with your Gal-entines or even a fun dance night with your partner, you’d better dress right. If you’re ready to ditch the LBD’s in favour of something edgier, or androgynous, some deconstructed streetwear or something a little fusionistic, we’ve got you covered on all the high street and luxe picks you can explore on your last-minute wardrobe run:


Vizyon’s luxury streetwear line is made for the Gen-Z Valentines; the graphic tees, the bucket hats, the doodle jackets, utility hoodies (that also double up as a backpack) are just ready to be flaunted. And you’ll even find matching doodle-printed face covers to complete the look.

If you want to go for some desi drama, look no further than Saundh’s suzandori line which has some fresh new takes on patola and some pastel raw silk, mirror-embellished A-line kurta sets, superbly cut shararas, and some really chic saris. You can also go for some gorgeous organza silk anarkalis or embroidered pastel kurta sets, accompanied by gota lace dupattas from Saundh’s Nazm collection.
