Psychologists say that there are five languages of love, but the sixth one is communicating how you express yourself. If you’re not the kind to be verbal, clothes and accessories are the best way to express yourself without even saying anything. From hue to print, these little details convey a bigger message to your lover through the subtlety (or not-so-subtlety) of the design.
Here are our top seven picks:
Carel Paris Peche Mary-Jane, 295€

Created in collaboration with artist Joanna Vasconcelos, Dior’s iconic namesake bag gets a celebratory update with a glittery red heart against a black background. Though it’s something you can wear everyday, amp the va-va-voom factor on date night with a pantsuit and chunky gold necklace.
