Spring blush tones from Ted Baker, Topshop, Mint Velvet and more
As the temperature does not yet say spring (more Beast) means we can still dream of seductive evenings spent in a hotel lobby, draped in silks and lightweight knits lying by an open fire.
Whether a relaxed trouser suit or a slip dress, ensure to keep all pieces in a blush hue to heighten the romance of the trend.
Who needs a partner to buy you a rose when you can buy yourself a rose satin pleated skirt from Ted Baker?
With Chloé and Gucci still in love with the pale pink and 70s partnership, a trend that blends perfectly together like Sonny and Cher, it seems only right that the highstreet would follow.
A shaggy cream faux fur by Topshop looks effortlessly cool over high-waisted pastel corduroys and a palm tree print shirt by Mint Velvet (very Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas).
Faux fur jacket, £79; High waisted cords, £45, both Topshop, 0344 984 0264, topshop.com
Shirt, £69, Mint Velvet, 0345 456 2200, mintvelvet.co.uk
A loose fitted trouser suit is an investment for the season ahead.
A wide leg trouser is just the ticket for the relaxed cool vibe of the seventies (Jovonna London do seventies cool beautifully) whilst a luxe silk shirt by Sosandar adds to the romance of the era.
Of course it wouldn’t be the seventies without a thick-rimmed pair of spectacles, look to David Clulow who has a vast selection to choose from.
Finish with a suede slider by Hidden to keep the overall look relaxed and easy on the eye (and feet).

And finally, nothing says romance like a Ghost dress. A favourite for bridal, the ready-to-wear collection is just as stunning.
Why keep the satin bias-cut floor length dress for just one special day. Choose in either boudoir pink or oyster, keep feet bare and add a lightweight wool coat over the shoulders for laid-back glamour.
Pink had never been so alluring.
