Fashion blogger Lucy Williams recently celebrated her birthday in style in Jamaica, an island renowned for its beautiful beaches and laidback vibe. Settle down on the sand with a good book, your favourite pair of denim shorts and a lightweight cotton tee and watch the world go by. The perfect Valentine's Day destination.

Are you planning more of a Galentine's Day than a Valentine's Day this year?

Danish influencer and travel writer Hanna knows all too well that wandering the cobbled streets of Copenhagen is always better with friends. Throw on a pair of classic blue jeans and a lightweight jacket and spend the afternoon exploring the famous Tivoli Gardens.

Mallorca

Make like the always-stylish Riley and Michaela, and pay a visit to the Spanish island of Mallorca. With temperatures hitting around 15C on average, it's the perfect spot for some spring sun.

Pack a cool yet casual denim shirt (and a matching one for him, too) to wear while checking out all the beautiful architecture the city has to offer. Make sure to find time to head down to the glorious Caló des Moro beach (pictured above).

Iceland

Bloggers, founders of Trotter Magazine, and all-round power couple, Eva and Stefan, show how a holiday in an arctic climate can actually be very romantic!

Take in Reykjavik's stunning scenery, and explore Iceland's natural wonders, including the Blue Lagoon and the infamous Black Sand Beach (pictured above). Don't forget to wrap up warm with stylish sweaters and a chunky shearling jacket.

Venice

Venice — with its beautiful waterways and postcard-perfect architecture — is a city that's always filled with romance.

Whether you're taking a gondola tour across the city or sampling the delicious food that Italy is famed for, you're guaranteed to never want to return home. Take some style inspiration from fashion blogger Sophia and pull on your favourite pair of boyfriend jeans and an easy white top to nail that European chic holiday wardrobe.

Paris

And finally, how could we make a list of the best places to spend Valentine's Day without mentioning the city of love?

From bohemian Montmartre to the gardens of the Palais Royal, Paris is steeped in romantic history. Of course the food is always a highlight in Paris: enjoy oysters at L'Avant Comptoir de la Mer, and have coffee at Les Deux Magots a favourite with the literary elite. Stay in the aptly named Hotel Amour for the ultimate Valentine's experience. Do like Monica Ainley and wear black jeans with a classic trench coat.
