The week of Love is here!
Over a span of 7 days, all those in love will be busy showering their better halves with towering piles of gifts.
However, a wise man once said, Love yourself, before you love somebody else.
So how about opting for a slight deviation. If you are committed, instead of spending all of that hard-earned wealth on your significant other, we suggest you save a part of it and show some self-love. But if you are single, it becomes mandatory for you.
Pamper yourself with gifts that are trending high on the fashion charts and your shopping list.
After all, why wait for your prince charming to fulfill your dreams when you can be the King yourself.
With most of the spring-summer fashion weeks concluded, we do have a fair idea of the trends that are sure to make it big this season. And for you to stay ahead of fashion, you need to start stocking up on those trendsetters right away before it’s summer already.

Here’s a quick gifting guide to help you shop the best gift ever for your favorite valentine, which is you.
A Scent for the Spring/Summer
Have a good V-day gifting budget, but no one to spend on? Spend it on a nice spring summer special fragrance that will keep you smelling good for all those incoming, stinking summer days. You can choose from the most latest collection of exotic perfumes. Our pick for the season will be :
Carolina Herrera Good Girl
We bet you will reap instant returns from your investment seeing the facade itself. The patent pump feel will surprise you even more with its blend of jasmine, cocoa, and tonka bean. A strong one, but can be worn on a daily basis.
Still, thinking about what to wear for your date night on Valentine’s Day? We got the perfect pick for you. Bidding adieu to LBD’s and maxis, it’s time to say hello to Midi length dresses. Be it in a solid color or one boasting of fresh romantic prints, a midi dress is sure to get all his attention, especially if you get one with a slightly plunging neckline or an envious back. We wonder if this is a gift you are giving yourself or your man, but we can assure you of the soaring temperatures.
A piece like Kangana’s most recent appearance in a candy pink midi is sure to give you a yummilicious Valentine makeover.
This cheerful color is the most recent rage and if you don’t have one in your closet, then lady, I am afraid you might not appear on the fashion radar. Bright, positive, and superbly trending, you definitely have all the reasons to wear this hue in the coming season. With fashion stores offering steal deals for Valentines, I suggest you do some yellow shopping and enjoy that inherent satisfaction of having got it for a cheaper price.
Need proof? B-town fashion leaders are carrying shades of yellow like everywhere.
You can never have enough of them. With every summer comes a defining eyewear trend and we have to succumb to it, considering it’s an essential we need to beat that scorching sun. This spring summer, no-frame-shades in bright neons is what you need to turn those heads.
If you have seen the most recent pictures of Alia Bhatt, then you will know about the trending eyepiece we are referring to.
Mind it, ladies, if you think that you will manage with those Ray-Ban reflectors, then you are bound to feel dated and envious, once you see fashionistas wearing that rimless pop of color in their spring-summer special selfies. So just a heads up, grab one if you find a befitting one.
Dramatic or subtle, ruffles are the new mania engulfing the fashion industry. This Valentine’s day, gift your casual wardrobe a dynamic update by buying a fetching ruffled top or a midi with ruffled edges. If you are an adventurous fashionista who likes to be the showstopper everywhere she goes, then a saree with ruffled accents, like the one recently showcased at the LFW spring summer 2020 runway, did make a cherished gift to pamper your fashion senses.
Take a cue to work the trend from Bollywood’s favorite fashionista, Sonam Kapoor.
Priyanka Chopra delighted us with her ruffled sleeves at the Koffee with Karan couch.
As seen on the international runways of Spring Summer 2017, big bags are making a comeback. Exaggerated sizing combined with minimalistic design aesthetics, the arm candies that are set to shine this summer, are the supersized bags/totes that will carry anything and everything for you. What better than having a single bag carry all your essentials from day to night and at the same time amping up your trendsetter reputation. The bigger the better, pick up a chic piece and gift yourself a functional piece that doubles up your street style coming season.
Slogan T-shirts are a closet must-have for the summers ahead. Having sported a whole lot of words inscribed on your t-shirts, this season gift yourself a tee that flaunts a message you truly believe in. Take a stand and support a cause by wearing a message a bold and beautiful way. Use valentine’s day as an excuse to cheat through your financial plans of no shopping after that hefty sale season behind, and gift yourself a trending yet low on a budget gift
We loved this one from Dior.
We spotted a whole lot of tinsel town beauties working slogan tees.
Shoe love is the purest form of love. If you agree then a new pair has to be your Valentine’s Day gift this year. With pencil heels and peeps giving way to a whole set of new platform flats or flatforms, what better day to add this trending chartbuster to your shoe closet.
Brownie points for the comfort factor. No gift can beat this one especially for girls who love to add those extra inches of confidence to their style files but fear tripping over those jaw-dropping heels.
Navel Reaching Pendants
Bored of wearing chokers? Then this valentine gift yourself a perfect upgrade by investing in a statement long neckpiece. Neckpieces that are long enough to settle on your torso reaching up to the navel are the way to go. You can pair them up with fluid color-blocked tunics or classic white and black shirt dresses to create a lasting impact. When you play dress-up the Indian way, these neckpieces could well elevate your shirt/top and ethnic skirt pairings too.
At the recent Lakme Fashion Week, jewelry label Wandering Whites, presented a bold and beautiful collection of long neckpieces, reinforcing our faith in this upcoming trend.
Electronic Watches and Activity Tracker Bands
A woman is the designated caretaker of the family, but the most negligent one when it comes to her own health. This Valentine’s day gift yourself good health the fashionista way. An activity tracker, like the latest Fitbit Flex 2 or the ones from Xiaomi not only monitors your fitness regimen but will have you do that in line with your fashion game.
For Apple users, the electronic watch from Apple is sure to add more luxe to your timepiece collection. If you wish to join the group of Bollywood fashion leaders like Kareena Kapoor Khan and Neha Dhupia, then this one’s for you.
