That'll Give You Summer Feels
10 Of London's
Hottest Summer Pop-Ups
Valentine’s Day is just round the corner which means so is the unnecessary pressure of finding a date. It’s not like you’re overly fussed about the date itself – but you wouldn’t mind saving face, or even just looking busy on Insta when it seems the majority of your feed is swimming in snaps of ‘the boy did good’.
Calling out to all solo flyers, there are plenty of reasons to enjoy Valentine’s Day when you’re not coupled up – and they have sweet FA to do with flowers…
1. Your bank account won’t take a hit, which means you can spend your money on someone who is more than worth it. YOU.
Single or in a relationship this Valentine’s Day, here at boohoo we don’t need a boy or a dedicated day to treat ourselves. Justin Bieber is right, you SHOULD go and love yourself… Whether you’re being wined and dined or out with your girl squad it really is time to forget the flowers and chocolate.
OK, so it’s no secret I’m single. In fact to steal quote Bridget Jones, I’m an actual love pariah. As I have nobody to receive a gift from, I’m hoping Saint Valentine will take pity on my sassy single ass and bring be someone to (Netflix and) Chill with. There’s only one dude for me RN and that’s Tattoo Fixer’s Sketch. From his sexy South London accent to his mad inking skills, the man is delicious. I am actually considering apply for a cover up so I can drool over him IRL.
I’ll be getting myself the boohoo heart placement tee that I’d wear tucked into skinny high waist jeans and team with a beanie, chunky boots and loads of jewellery for a laid back date with my Sketchy. Yeah OK, he has a wife and a family and I’m no homewrecker, but a girl can dream right?
Oh hey Nineties, we missed you. Of course you’ll flirt with other decades (clever girls keep their options open) but the message is clear: old school RULES OK!
While there’s always room in the wardrobe for a little grunge, the new Nineties trend is more Calvin Klein fresh than Cobain’s unkempt. Think Cool Britannia when everything from models and bands to footballers and artists were given superstar status.
ARIES/The Ram – You are one independent woman; feisty AF and a huge barrel of laughs. Despite your charm, you can’t always keep a lid on it. NOR can you always pull off being a diva.
NY RES: Commit to one small random act of kindness each day. Share your doughnuts, send an appreciation tweet – there are no limits!
Nothing says new season refresh like an all-white affair. Think clean cuts and minimal accessories to get it right in white. We’ve rounded up some of our fave celeb looks that definitely get it white on the night.
Frills were in fine form on the catwalk for SS16, and this year they’re big… literally! Combining delicacy and drama in sheer tiers and volumous structure, think less princess more girl power in a retro glam take on ruffles.
Temperley London kept the frills bold but simple, adding accents to an already heavily embroidered dress; whereas Micheal Kors went for an all-over effect, combining tiers and applique in a much more detailed design.
Social media fans rejoice – it’s finally here! Instagram this week have released the functionality to switch between accounts. And to celebrate, we’ve pulled together our go-to Insta apps, the filter enhancers we favour and the tools we just can NOT get enough of!
