February is finally here after a long and grey January, and love is already in the air. Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, giving you the perfect excuse to pamper yourself and spoil the one you love.

As well as picking out the perfect card and a super romantic gift, you can also include the colour of love in your outfit. What better way to embrace Valentine’s Day?

Here are some great ways to include this passionate shade in your ensemble without going over the top:


Red lips are a great accessory no matter what, but they are the perfect choice for adding an extra touch to your February 14th look. Whether you’re keeping the day casual or getting super glammed up for a romantic night out, red lipstick is your best friend.

Make your ruby pout last the day by applying it correctly. Start by lightly exfoliating your lips before applying a touch of lip balm. Line and fill your lips with a lip liner to get the right shape and form a base.

Then you just need to apply your lipstick and blot for perfect kiss-proof red lips.


We all know that the perfect finishing touch to any outfit is a gorgeous manicure, so why not add a touch of Valentine’s scarlet to yours?

You can either go full on red, add a touch of glitter or do something a bit different, such as have the pointed tips of your nails painted like love hearts. You also have options when it comes to the shade of red you wear, with deeper colours adding a more subtle touch to your look.


Rather than wearing red throughout your outfit, you can add a touch of bright colour through your accessories. This is the perfect way to dress up your little black dress or add something extra to your casual ensemble.

One of the simplest crimson additions is your handbag, which can be used alongside red lips or nails or on its own. Our Red Crossbody Bag can take you from day to night in a flash, no matter what your Valentine’s plans.


If you want to go a bit bolder with your look, why not switch out your standard little black dress for a little red dress? No matter what shade of scarlet you love or the style of dress you feel best in, a red dress can instantly help you embrace the romance.

It’s a good idea to tone down your accessories if you’re wearing a red dress, or it can be a bit much. Gold is a great option instead of more red and will help your dress to really pop.


Of course, one of the most beautiful options for adding a touch of red to your outfit this Valentine’s Day is by rocking some ruby jewellery.

No matter what your style, what you’re doing this Valentine’s or what you’re planning on wearing, rubies are the perfect touch for February 14th. Even if you suspect that your partner is going to treat you to something sparkly on the day, you should make yourself feel great by spoiling yourself.

Pieces like our African Ruby Lever-Back Earrings in Sterling Silver are the perfect option for Valentine’s. The hearts make sure your outfit will fit with the celebration while also ensuring they are great for the rest of the year too.

Of course, if rubies aren’t really your thing, you can find the gemstone to suit your style and your budget with TJC. Shop our great range of jewellery here and find the ultimate finishing touch for your outfit this February 14th.
