Although Valentine’s Day is coming up, February also marks the arrival of Galentine’s Day – a moment where we’re invited to celebrate the amazing women in our lives who make every day brighter.
Our besties are by our side through thick and thin, so why not spend February 13th showing them just how much they mean to you. From picnics and spa days to cocktail classes and boozy brunches, now’s the time to bring your girl gang together for a party.
Read on as we reveal how you can celebrate Galentine’s in style and what to wear for each moment.
Free Flowing Friendship
Nothing makes us happier than a bottomless brunch – the perfect way to bring your best friends together over bubbles for a catch up. We’d book a table at Cruise in Hong Kong to while away a few hours on their alfresco terrace with gorgeous vistas of Victoria Harbour. With unlimited appetisers and free flowing Mumm Champagne, it’s the ultimate setting to celebrate your friendship. When it comes to making that moment special in the style stakes, we’d rock our Lora Jumpsuit in vivid cobalt blue. The draped neckline and wide leg design delivers a look your friends will want to copy, whilst the soft and subtle fabric means you’ll feel comfortable as you indulge your way through the menu.
Why not celebrate Galentine’s Day by getting the gang together for a pamper session? Spa days needn’t cost the earth! Pick up your favourite sheet masks, invest in some foot spas and hire a masseuse to head to your home and turn your living room into a zen space filled with relaxation. Treat your tribe to matching dressing gowns from our Emma Silk collection to unite you as you unwind. We love our Rule design with its colourful stripes for extra sass.
Siesta With Your Sisters
If you’re eager to make a night of it, then book yourself a spot at a female-run bar so you can celebrate women-run businesses with style. We love Doña in Dalston where you’ll find the all-female team making some cracking cocktails using their own Dangerous Don Mezcal. The perfect place to start your night – just remember your moves for when the dance floor calls. Fun nights with your friends call for an outfit with flair. We love our tinsel tastic Betty Jumpsuit. This silver star was made for shimmying – wear with platforms and get ready to shake it after a few mixology masterpieces.
Discovering the city is a great way to bond with your besties, but why share a crowded hop-on hop-off bus with strangers if you can explore the city in your own stylish Mini Cooper with your closest gal pal? Small Car Big City lets you rent quirky cars for your London adventures and provides a knowledgeable city insider – on your own schedule. No matter if you are a visitor or have lived in London for years, you’ll be sure to see something you haven’t noticed before all whilst having fun with your friends. An outfit fit for cruising the capital? We’d keep it comfy with our Janet colour-block cardi and BTW Jegging combo. Throw on some sneakers and you’re ready to hit the accelerator.
Roll With It
Roller skates, neon lights, disco tunes and a retro diner – is there a better setting for you and your girls to have fun? Bun’s 2020 is an Instagrammable hot spot in Hong Kong for girl groups looking to let loose and celebrate Galentine’s Day in epic 80s style. With endless photo ops, your outfit needs to be spot on. We’d bring the bling with our Sadie Mini skirt which was made for twirling on skates (just remember to wear a pair of shorts underneath). Pair it with our Cynthia Top and tie your hair into a cute high pony to complete the look.
With so many ways to celebrate those women who empower and inspire you every day, it’s time to get planning. Don’t forget to tag us in your photos @emmawallacedesigner so we can celebrate you too!
