Hands up if a day to celebrate girl power, friendship and all things female sounds right up your street?! Galentine’s Day is just around the corner and if you’re unsure about what it is or how you should be celebrating, you’ve come to the right place…

 
What is Galentine’s Day?
 

Galentine’s Day is on February 13 and it’s a chance to celebrate female friendship during a month that is traditionally reserved for lovebirds.

 

As any current or former singleton will know, flying solo around Valentine’s Day can be a a tricky time hence why Galentine’s Day was invented! We have Amy Poehler (Regina George’s ‘cool mom’) to thank as it was her who coined the phrase in an episode of Parks and Recreation back in 2010.

Thanks to Galentine’s, gone are the days where singletons are banished to the sofa to cry at crappy rom coms with a clichéd tub of ice cream around mid-February! In their place, comes a new day which celebrates friendships between all ladies – single, taken or somewhere in between.

 

With it being on February 13 taken ladies can also celebrate Galentine’s with their babes and then do the hearts and flowers stuff with their beaus the next day. In a world where balancing your girls and guys is a tough one, be somebody who can do both. After all, as the Spice Girls (THE newly-reformed pioneers of girl power) would say – friendship never ends!

Rock that body!
 

If it were up to us bodysuits would be THE official uniform of Galentine’s Day – hear us out….

 

As much as we love them, bodysuits are notoriously hard to manoeuvre around Mother Nature – AKA when we need a wee! If you’re out with your girls then you know there’s definitely going to be someone around if you’re in need of a helping hand in the bathroom. Also if you’re definitely going home alone there’s no need to worry about having to literally un-pop yourself in front of a potential partner either!

 

Practicalities aside, bodysuits are totally babelicious and there are a few from our new in section that have got us falling hard this February…


 

Cocktail O’clock…
 

If you and your girls are going all out for Galentine’s Day, then do so like a true #femaleboss! If any dress screams ‘I don’t need a man’, it’s this one. Featuring on trend wrap and button detailing, it’s a fierce option for all occasions. We can’t promise that you’ll still be single at the end of the night though…

 


 

On Tuesday’s we wear…
 

Ok, so Wednesday is usually the day for all things pink according to Mean Girls tradition BUT we can make an exception for Galentine’s Day! It’s what Amy would want, after all…

 

Pink is the ultimate feminine colour, making it the perfect pick for you and your girlfriends this Galentine’s. These new season knits are perfect for thinking pink, without going all out Elle Woods. Go pretty and plain with our slouch sweater or opt for something sassier with our choker detail jumper, either way you’ll be set to slay this Galentine’s Day!
