It’s Valentine’s week and you know what that means. The POPxo Love Fest is just ‘round the corner – the one day ‘all-things-love’ festival is going to be THE place to be this Sunday, February 11th. So, I’d take my dressing game to the next level if I were you… Look irresistibly adorable for your date. Or if you’re happily single, you never know you might just bump into ‘The One’ while you’re there. The thing with dressing for V-Day though is that it’s easy to look OTT with all the red and the pink. It might seem like a good idea to go out wearing an all pink outfit, but trust me, it’s not a good move. Less is seriously more, in this case. So unless you want to learn from your own mistakes, make sure all the ‘love’ in your outfit is in the details. Yes, we’re going to set the mood with earrings, bags, scarves and more. I’ve thrown together 10 lovey-dovey (but not corny) accessories you can add to your outfit for the POPxo Love Fest and the days of love to follow.
If you want to make it easier for your future boyfriend to spot you in a crowd, these earrings will do the job. And rather successfully, at that. A statement pair, these slogan tape beauties are all about the 4 letter word, but are also as edgy as it gets. Style them with a red turtleneck, a black skirt and a blazer vest… ‘Romeo, Oh Romeo… Wherefore art thou, Romeo?’
