Valentine’s Day is fast approaching and that only means one thing – get ready for gifts!
It can be hard to pull off the equestrian look without looking over the top and that’s why themed accessories are an equestrian style lover’s best friend.
So, it’s time to start shopping and add some gorgeous equestrian chic items to your special someone’s accessories closet.
All that glitters
A recent survey showed that 17% of the gifts bought for Valentine’s Day are an item of jewellery, so something sparkly will always be a welcome gift.
We love this gorgeous Carousel Rocking Horse necklace from Isabelle Rowe. The tiny golden horse is joined by precious stones tourmaline, ruby, pink and yellow sapphire, and topaz making it the perfect fantasy gift if your loved one.
Roberto Cavalli is the ultimate in high fashion if you’re a fan of equestrian style and this stunning silver and Swarovski crystal Horses necklace is the perfect addition to anyone’s jewellery chest.
And don’t forget Tiffany! After all, what woman can resist a little blue Tiffany box?
It’s every woman’s dream to have a collection of beautiful handbags and this Gucci shoulder bag is a good place to start. There’s even a matching belt if you want the double whammy of Valentine’s Day gifts.
You can shop the entire Gucci Equestrian Collection online.
This stunning Charlotte Olympia Zodiac clutch would be another fantastic bag to add to the collection. The hand painted enamel horse symbol adds interest and the bright orange colour really makes a statement.
If orange isn’t your thing then you can’t go wrong with classic brand, Ralph Lauren. The amazing Alligator Ricky bag takes 12 hours to make and is inspired by a vintage Copper saddle carrier. If a £17k bag isn’t a declaration of undying love we don’t know what is.
Your love keeps me warm
Silk scarves are a timeless classic and when you want a luxurious equestrian look you could do worse than purchase your loved one a gift from Stella McCartney. This bold red, white and blue horse scarf has an equestrian inspired pattern and is a great way to update your wardrobe.
Speaking of a timeless classic, how about the glamorous tweed-look cashmere gloves from the original French luxury brand, Hermes?
These boots are made for walking
No equestrian chic lover’s wardrobe is complete without at least one pair of boots that wouldn’t look out of place at the stables and a nice pair of shoes makes a fabulous gift.
The burnt red colour and soft, vintage leather mean these Valentino Animalia boots are perfect for a relaxed weekend look and the over-the-knee style adds a touch of glamour.
Shopping for more of a rodeo girl than a dressage diva? Every girl needs a great pair of boots and a great pair of cowboy boots are so cool.
We love the Stallion Boots & Leather Goods “Zorro” boots with Alligator leather details and Western influence these boots are the perfect shoes to take you from day to night.
The BIG question
Apparently 10% of proposals happen on Valentine’s Day and what better way to win your future wife’s heart than with an engagement ring that combines two of a woman’s favourite things – diamonds and horses, We love these these horseshoe inspired rings…
Or finally, how about something a little more unusual with this gorgeous rose gold ‘Equus’ ring, inspired by a horseshoe nail?
