We Heart Hearts! Fashion Trends Daily’s Valentine’s Day Picks


I love me…I love me not…I love me…I love me not…

Enough already! Stop the internal dialogue, quit complaining that Valentine’s day is a cheesy commercial holiday and blah, blah, blah and show yourself a little love! We believe in retail therapy, and we’re so in love with these heart-themed goodies that we just might mail them to ourselves along with a love note!

And if you think that these picks only work once a year (like that ill-fated, light-up Christmas sweater Aunt Edna loves to wear) think again! We think that they’re a stylish, whimsical antidote to some of life’s nuttiness. Happy lovin’!


Moschino Cheap & Chic Leather Bag

Moschino Cheap and Chic Small Leather Bag ($620)

Have a heart. This quilted bag might remind you of a certain Coco, but Moschino puts a cheeky twist on everything they do. It comes in a hue that will look fabulous all year round, and we love that it doesn’t take itself too seriously.

J. Crew Pleated Jardin Skirt in Heart Throb ($128)

J. Crew Pleated Jardin Skirt in Heart Throb

Sugar, spice and everything nice. Good girls will love this pleated A-lineskirt from J. Crew. The on-trend mid-length and super flattering cut mean that you’ll be reaching for this from Valentine’s Day straight through the summertime. Don’t think it’s too precious to wear. You don’t have to pair it with a twinset! Edge it up with a tee, leather jacket and some great baubles and you’ll be street-style ready.

Jonathan Adler-Jacques Torres Heart Box ($80)

Jonathan Adler-Jacques Torres Heart Box

What’s sweeter than our heart-print picks? Chocolate from master chef Jacques Torres might just be the only thing we can think of.

Good thing his collab with Jonathan Adler’s got Aliz© chocolates nestled inside a white and platinum box.  The pot is made by artisans in Peru and provides communities with jobs and economic stability. More to love!

Stila Love at First Blush Palette ($14)

Stila Love at First Blush Palette

With a color called “Love at First Blush,” we can’t help but be smitten. Use it as a blush and highlight in one or selectively swirl for some specific colors. We love that it’s got a subtle shimmer and it gives you options for customizing your flush. Swirl it all together for an easy glow, bat your lashes and give someone a come-hither stare.


Tory Burch Mireille Pajama Set

Tory Burch Mireille Pajama Set ($198)

While it probably won’t be making the rounds during fashion week, this pajama set will make you happy if you’re wearing it at home alone or slinking around the morning after. Tory’s signature blend of pink and orange (our editor Michelle’s a huge fan of that combo, too) get mixed into a

YSL Heart-Print Sheer Tights

heart motif that we find irresistible.



YSL Heart-Print Sheer Tights ($95)

Yes, we love us some YSL, it’s true. But we melted even more when we spotted these. It might be the most affordable thing from St. Laurent, but it makes as big of an impact as any Trib Too pump. These burnout tights have little hearts fluttering up and down, giving your gams major attention with minimal effort. Now, if only love were as easy as slipping on a pair of tights!

The Best Bold Skinny Belts

When everything in your closet looks old and staid, that’s not the time to go and toss it all and start from scratch. Not that we’re against shopping, of course, but let’s not make rash decisions. Keep your wardrobe fresh and fun by adding something as simple as a skinny belt. These do-it-all wonders look great over chunky knits, flowing blouses even your favorite dresses. Pull a Jenna Lyons and slide one on over a cardigan for a chic librarian look or go for broke by adding more than one over a basic shirtdress. The more, the merrier — especially when it comes to these not-so-basic belts.
