Could there really be a better time to pull off a flirtatious-yet-effortless look than on Valentine’s Day? We think not … and we’re gushing over the four fabulously feminine dress styles from the vibrant creations H&M has collaborated on with Colombian designer Johanna Ortiz. The main collection will be in stores in March only, so for now, we’re oohing over the four styles in the exclusive pre-drop – tunic, wrap, mini and tiered floor-length dresses in four exotic floral prints and colours like warm yellow, dusty pink, forest-green printed and coral-infused dark brown. The designer suggests we pair these dresses with minimal sandals, lavish earrings and a straw bag. Our Valentine outfit is sorted. Details: h&m.co.za
