This season, there’s definitely love in the air on the catwalks, with floaty fabrics, soft pastels, pretty florals and elegant lace. Valentine’s Day may have been a few months ago now, but the sight of all those romantic fabrics is enough to make anyone fall in love all over again... It’s time to fall head first into your favourite Disney movie, and wait for your Prince Charming to come and take you to the ball...

And the ball gowns come no better than this season’s offerings from Chanel, Christian Dior and Valentino. Louis Vuitton’s runaways came fairytale complete, with a merry-go round and pale pastels, adorned with floral appliqué, soft feathers and the occasional crystal, creating the girliest dresses around. Valentino’s floaty masterpieces showed a medieval influence with their floor length gowns complete with intricate buttoning and high necklines, but Valentino’s flirty pastel florals and lace patterns made the look more modern day princess than medieval maid! Or for pure red carpet impact, look to Christian Dior’s show stopping creations in bolder colours. Dior’s runway was a colourful combination of chiffon, lace and silk, combined with the glamour of elbow length gloves. So next time your fairy godmother comes calling, remember those names...

Every little girl wants to be a princess for just a day, and now with fashion’s new romantic trend, we can all dream of being swept away by our own Prince Charming, without having to kiss a hundred frogs to find him first. Here at A-SHU we’ve got the perfect romantic accessories to complete your princess look, perfect for a romantic night out with your boyfriend, or for wowing on that first date (though maybe don’t mention that you’re looking for a Prince Charming just then!). For a pair of high heel shoes that will wow but are a little more practical than Cinderella’s glass slipper, try our Silver Metallic High Heel Stiletto, a complete bargain at £16.99, or for a little more sparkle to match your princess dress, our Silver Diamante Strap Sandals are perfect for adding that glitz for only £19.99. Just remember to give prince Charming your number rather than your (fabulous) shoes! If Valentino’s pretty florals have inspired you, take the romance to a whole new level with the current trend for 3D florals. Bring your favourite petals to life on your wrist with our Salmon Pink Floral Corsage Wrist Band with Lace and Bead Embellishment for the small price of £4.99. And for a romantic bag with a difference, try our unique Over-Sized Clutch / Shoulder Handbag with Padlock in the Style of Chloe with its ladylike lace patterning.

To find your inner romantic, take inspiration from those girly catwalks and look for pretty outfits with a bit of sparkle to inspire your inner Cinderella. Cinderella, you shall go to the ball!
