If you want to get noticed this Valentine's Day, take a leaf from Versace's book. No one does bodycon like this Italian label and for Spring / Summer, their vividly eye-catching prints make them more striking than ever. Chainmail detailing, metallic embroidery and perforated leather all add to the drama.

So how can you work this look? Thigh-high minis are only for those with the most perfect of pins but never underestimate the power of a towering platform or black opaque hosiery. This sugar-pink hue is quite an eyeful so be sure to avoid the Barbie route by combining it with an edgy accessory like these lace-up heels and studded belt. Finish off with a glossy mane and killer twinkle in your eye and it won't just be the man you're with who is falling at your feet.
