Archana Sadanand

A self-confessed fashion addict who hails from India, she was born and raised in Dubai, Archana's only 23 years old, but she's already turning heads with her makeup reviews and keen sense of style. She particularly enjoys playing with colours and swears the secret to a perfect outfit lies in the details. We believe her!

"If you have a day or night event with a special someone, look no further than a classic lacy number," says Archana. Bright pink heels and chunky accessories add extra character to the style, and finish the look perfectly.

Heels: Shoemart

Andy Scott

This Brit blogger got into the fashion scene when he starting posting pictures of his outfits on lookbook.nu. He's no stranger to suits and blazers, but likes to define his style as 'street smart'. "I love looking dapper in a tailored suit but I also have a massive sneakers collection with around 300 pairs," he confesses.

There are only a few occasions when you can pull off velvet - and V-Day happens to be one of them, says Andy. This dark maroon blazer adds a twist to the traditional look and really makes a statement. And let's face it - it's hard to go wrong with a reddish look for Valentine's Day.
Blazer: Iconic
Turtle neck: Zara
Chelsea Boots: Asos
Nicoleta Buru
Blog: www.reinventyourself.guide
This beauty has been blogging for five years now, and she's only getting better. Nicoleta comes from Moldova, and she is all for experimenting with fashion. Her style is feminine - floral prints, delicate embroidery and lace - and she enjoys adding creative accessories to give outfits a more personal touch.

Want a romantic look that will remind you of the butterflies-in-your-tummy feeling that comes with young love? Nicoleta presents a feminine lace and floral print that is perfect if one doesn't want to go over the top with red or pink. "Also a great option for a day event," she adds.  

Dress:  For Love & Lemons
Shoes: Aldo
Bag: Dolce & Gabbana
Paul Ramos
Blog: www.thestylechoreo.blogspot.com
This handsome Filipino is known around UAE's blogosphere for his impeccable sense of style and willingness to try new things. His look is dandy and corporate, while still being edgy, and he sure knows how to rock a blazer.

This is no ordinary formal look! The sleek pinstripe single-breasted blazer goes impeccably well with the black trousers and Paul finishes the look with croc tassel loafers and a black bow tie. "For a touch of romance, add a red flower lapel pin," advises Paul. "It's just perfect for the occasion."  

Blazer, pants & bow tie: Zara
Loafers: Bachelor Shoes
Flower lapel pin: BoxKnocks
 
If a V-Day outing warrants a truly formal look, go for a double-breasted suit, advises Andy. "It's my personal favourite look," he adds. "It is perfect if you're going some where fancy."
Suit: Bespoke, stitched in Thailand
Shoes: Paul Evans NY
Watch: Antoni Manuel
Pocket square: Bowties & Gents

Don't want a traditional pink or red dress? Get creative with a crop top, full skirt and red accessories like Archana did with this look. "This looks great, even if you just want to spend the day with your girlfriends," she says.

Top: Splash
Skirt: River Island
Heels : Call It Spring
Watch: Daniel Wellington

"This is the perfect evening look for those who want to go out and celebrate their unique love story," says Nicoleta. A classic red jumpsuit looks edgy, yet elegant and is perfect when paired with high heels.

Jumpsuit: Diane von Furstenberg
Shoes: Aldo
Bracelet: Swarovski
Bag: Dolce & Gabbana
 

Paul presents a more casual look with a hint of edge with this double-breasted blazer. "Every man should be more conscious of what he's wearing - not just to inspire others, but to impress his date on Valentine's Day."
Blazer: Aliph - Gatsby
Shirt, Pants & Loafers:  Zara
