The pampeano guide to a stylish Valentine's

With only five days to go until Valentine's Day, are you feeling ready? Valentine's Day can be a lovely excuse to show someone special just how much you love them. It can be a great opportunity to devote some quality time to your partner in the midst of an otherwise busy life, or to surprise someone with a thoughtful gift as a token of your love. But it can also be a little stressful; getting everything just right is not always that easy – and then there is the question of what to wear…

We all want to look our best, to leave a lasting impression, perhaps dress to impress. It is important to make an effort without trying too hard. Most importantly, you need to feel comfortable in your chosen outfit and you need to maintain your own sense of style. Often something classic, with some thoughtfully selected and beautiful accessories, is the best possible option.

Valentine's dates come in all shapes and sizes. If you are heading out to dinner after a long day at work, you will need an outfit that can make the transition from day to evening.  Choose a favourite dress and add a stunning scarf, a beautiful handbag and some coordinating shoes or heeled boots.


The Doblez Cross-Body Bag is perfect: simply remove the shoulder strap to transform your handbag into a stylish clutch. The richly coloured leather is irresistibly soft and the hand-stitched pampa design on the strap adds a dash of authentic luxury. An ultra-fine cashmere scarf such as the Ocio will keep you warm in the evening chill and is a versatile and stylish addition to any outfit. Finally, use a skinny belt to accentuate a waistline or add flattering curves. The Nieto Skinny Black Leather Belt adds timeless style and simplicity and the luxuriously soft leather will speak for itself. Alternatively, add a dash of fun and individuality with the Zebra Print Belt.

If your ideal Valentine's Day has a more casual feel, add a special touch to your outfit with one of our beautiful and iconic pampeano polo belts. These belts are the embodiment of craftsmanship, luxury materials and exceptional design. Available in a variety of stunning colours, patterns and sizes, pampeano has a belt to define everyone’s personal style. Made from the finest vegetable dyed leather, each pampeano polo belt is hand stitched. No two will ever be quite the same, making them as individual as the people who wear them.


Express your femininity with the chic pink and navy blue of the ‘Dulce’ or the ‘Hermoso’, both equally stunning with jeans in white or indigo, and for him the ‘Valiente’ or the ‘Tornado’ are an excellent choice with chinos.


For something really special, chose a belt from the colección de color range. A contemporary twist on the traditional polo belt, this exquisite collection of hand-stitched belts in 5 refined leather colours is luxurious and sophisticated.


Valentine's Day falls in February, so prepare for the chill with something luxuriously warm. Add a touch of romance to your outfit with the exquisite pampeano Alpaca Fur Trimmed Cape. This piece is hand-made in Peru from the wool of the Andes alpaca herds – authentic and stunning. Wear with or without a belt for a look which is versatile and sophisticated.


Finally, if you plan to whisk your Valentine away on a romantic escape, don’t forget our coordinating range of luxury leather luggage items. The stunning Caballero Travel Bag, with its butter-soft leather exterior and contrasting Bandera blue suede lining, is both practical and beautiful. On the straps you will find the iconic hand-stitched pampa diamonds, synonymous with pampeano’s own authentic South American styling. Complete your travelling ensemble with a Hombre Washbag - eminently stylish with plenty of room for all your lotions and potions - measuring 12cm in height, 11cm in width. You can also have your own personal monogram added, to make it even more special.


Whether your travels take you near or far, Happy Valentine's Day – from pampeano.
