Bad Gal RiRi is taking sock design to a whole new level. As a part of her latest Stance collaboration, the singer introduced three new styles. Rihanna wants you to celebrate Valentine’s Day while wearing the fanciest socks around. Each time she launches a line with the brand, things get better and better. Last time she delivered a holiday-inspired collection, and now she is treating us for the most romantic day of the year.
Rihanna revealed the first official look of the collection on her Instagram profile. Already available on Stance’s website, the three new drops are both sexy and chic at the same time. The singer has been Stance’s contributing creative director since 2015. She is so iconic that managed to put her fiercest fashion choices so far on the socks from the “Iconic Looks’ collection in 2017.
“Happy Valentine’s ladies. My newest collab with @stancemuse drops tonight! Get the #ColdHearted collection ‚Äö√Ñ√∂‚àö√ë‚Äö√ë¬¢at Midnight PST on ‚Äö√Ñ√∂‚àö√ë‚Äö√ë¬¢stance.com/rihanna #rihannaxstance.’
Her ninth collaboration with Stance, “Cold Hearted’ features three pairs available in colors that we all love. In her latest release, RiRi included dark gray, burgundy and cream styles. The knitted calf-length socks are accessorized with striking embellishment in matching colors. So whatever outfit you choose to flaunt for a date or cocktail night, there will be the right pair of socks to match it.
Embellished clothing, shoes and accessories are going to be huge in 2018 according to many luxury brands. Gucci already launched their collection of embellished logo socks, and everyone is going crazy over them. Knowing the power of RiRi in the fashion world, this Valentine’s Day collaboration with Stance might be the next big thing.
As expected, the Valentine’s Day collection is a bit pricey. Each pair costs $125. In other words, you might want them all, but is going to cost you a fortune. “Cold Hearted’ is now available at stance.com. Don’t think twice before purchasing a pair, or telling bae that these socks will be the ideal Valentine’s Day present for you.
Statement socks are becoming the beloved piece in all the fashionable street-style outfits. Delivered by the most famous influencers at the moment, these chic styles are the accessory you need to make your look much more on trend. The brave fashion bloggers are paring them with platform sandals, stilettos, and even mules. Next time you are missing that special something in your outfit, make sure to include a pair of fun socks.

The mega-popular singer is no strange to launching collections that celebrate her favorite days of the year. Just one month ago we got to enjoy her super-innovative merch for the Christmas holidays. The same thing happened for the previous New Year’s festive season. As a tribute to the one-year anniversary of her amazing album “Lemonade’, B dropped an entire line of clothes and accessories.

Another celebrity daughter entered the world of fashion. Reese Witherspoon‘s 18-year-old Ava Phillippe scored another fun campaign. The young beauty stared in Rodarte‘s Fall 2018 campaign this Tuesday. This was her official modeling debut, but Ava Phillipe won’t stop there. Her infamous mother, actress Reese Witherspoon invited her to model the spring collection for her lifestyle brand, Draper James. In just one week Ava took part in two fashion campaigns.
The Spring 2018 campaign for the brand isn’t just an ordinary presentation of its latest offerings. Reese and Ava are having a joyful mother-daughter moment and share details about their relationship. The actress proudly stated that she and her teenage daughter are very close and can talk for hours. Ava didn’t miss to compliment her mother saying that she loves being around her and that she finds her work very inspiring. You won’t be able to take your smile off your face watching the spring 2018 promotional material for Draper James. Ava is Reese Witherspoon’s doppelganger with her baby blonde hair and magnetic smile. The campaign in which the mother-daughter duo is laughing and teasing each other is full of positive energy.
The Big Little Lies actress debuted her lifestyle brand in November. Draper James is a brand that features high energy levels and vibrant color palette. You just can help yourself but smile from ear to ear when looking at its collections. For the brand’s Valentine’s Day collection Reese and Ava prepared a series of adorable shots modeling the love-inspired pieces. In one of the shots, Ava Phillippe wears gorgeous pink lace mini dress. Her famous mother flaunts fire red midi dress, which is a real Valentine’s day staple. Ava also goes casual in one of the shots with simple but cute white tee that features heart graphic. The bouquets of roses and the cute dog in the shoots of the Spring 2018 campaign for Draper James proved that no one can do Valentine’s Day better than Reese Witherspoon. The actress focused on mother-daughter love and the unique bond she shares with her daughter.
“I thought it might be fun to focus on mother-daughter love this spring. There is nothing like the love I have for my daughter. We share every emotion with each other, our hopes, and dreams‚Äö√Ñ√∂‚àö√ë¬¨‚àÇ. We can talk for hours!! – the actress revealed.
The cheerful duo claimed that they often agree on what’s fashionable and have similarities when it comes to their style. Anyway, the actress and her daughter have a different way of expressing themselves through clothes. Since they have the same taste they often share pieces from each other’s wardrobes.

It seems that the Christmas holidays were just a few days ago. We’re still not over the glitter euphoria, but it’s officially time to get ready for another fun holiday. Being only weeks away, Valentine’s Day is an excuse for all of us to get dressed up and look our best. Put on an elegant dress or a pair of jeans, but pay attention to your nails as well. Romantic Valentine’s Day nail art is already trending on every social media platform. You must’ve seen an array of cute designs so far, overwhelming your Instagram feed.
So no matter what way you’re going to celebrate this day, make sure to get a statement manicure. Some will have a romantic night out with bae, while others plan a cocktail party with friends. Either way, you’ve got a chance to pull off a mani that matches the holiday. Hearts are the top pattern you will see everywhere during February. So why not put them on your nails? For a minimalist look, just add a tiny heart on several of your nails. But if you are a lady who loves full-blown nail art, give yourself the courtesy to rock hearts in all sizes and hues.
But this doesn’t mean that cute hearts are a must when you do Valentine’s nails. To keep things simple, just avoid any patterns and choose a soft, gentle color that celebrates the most romantic day of the year.
Red is always the color to turn to in February. Even a simple red manicure will do the job. But since this is the ideal time to include cute patterns in your nail art, make sure to get the most out of this holiday. For those who are not huge fans of the signature Valentine’s color, here comes pink to save the day. Even glitter is welcome on days like this. Whatever hue you opt for, make sure is not boring. The sole purpose of holidays like this is to give you the chance to try things that you normally wouldn’t in your everyday life.
We rounded up the cutest Valentine’s day nail art you can flaunt for the upcoming month of love. Even if you don’t have a romantic date planned, a fierce manicure will have everyone’s eyes on you. Fun shades of pink and red are the unwritten rule to follow when glamming up your nails for the most romantic time of the year.
February is officially here and we have been looking forward to the end of winter for a while now, particularly since we love to shop for Valentine’s Day lingerie. Of course, this lingerie is by no means limited to February 14th either, though we know exactly how amazing it feels to pull on a new sexy outfit and feel like you are queen of the world.
With the holidays over and January passing by so very bleakly, the sunshine we get, at least in some parts of the world, during this month of love is a godsend. The warmth also warms up our hearts and the thought of spring definitely has us thinking new beginnings and embracing love. Hence Valentine’s Day lingerie comes in very handy when we think about showing both our partners and ourselves exactly what type of loving embrace we would enjoy most throughout this month and well into the next.
So whether you are treating yourself or your partner for Valentine’s Day, here is a lovely list of 9 rather enticing Valentine’s Day lingerie pieces or sets that will definitely set your imagination on fire as you shop for just the right mesh, lace and everything sexy come this week.
1. Fire Hazard Set
Available at Nasty Gal, this Valentine’s Day lingerie set has a mesh robe and a G-string to boot, an absolutely desire-inducing collection of pieces that, despite lacking in the bralettes department, is enough to set the bed afire. The robe is fully sheer in red mesh, the trim in scalloped lace, with a satin belt to tie it up. The thong is equally sheer and scalloped lace trimmed. Barely covering to mid-thigh, it is certainly worth the investment.
2. Malin Lace Set
ASOS offers a seriously sizzling red hot Valentine’s Day lingerie set that combines a strappy underwire bra with a strappy hipster bikini bottom and an equally strappy suspender to keep those thigh high stockings in place.

The strappy nature only adds to the appeal of the scalloped edges, further intensifying the come-hither allure once worn. Buy this set for you on ASOS.com!
3. DVT Madame X Set
Bralettes are sexy. High wasted panties are sexy if done right. Straps all around are very sexy.

The nude and pink combination gives the set a rather innocently loving feel for the ladies that prefer to present a more demure but no less alluring image. The bra is available here, and the high-waist panty here.
5. Fleur of England Dare Set
If you dare to show off skin while still appearing to be covered, this is the best Valentine’s Day lingerie set for you by Journelle. Appearing in a crimson color, the thong and balcony bra combination is simply stunning.

8. Belle et Bon Bon Bodysuit
Attraction requires a tool and bodysuits are the perfect measure, enticing partners and wearers alike with their lacy creations.

It has that entirely chic Moulin Rouge feel to it that is part lady and part expensive consort. Absolute desire is demanded.
9. Lace Balconette Bra and Thong Set
The final Valentine’s Day lingerie set on our list is a simple black balconette bra and lace thong from H&M that features low waist panties with a lines gusset, with narrow sides and two elastic straps on top to complement the string back, as well as a balconette bra in lace with padded underwire cups, narrow shoulder straps, and three elastic straps to create an interesting outline.
