THE big love affair began with Harry Styles on his 19th birthday back in February. Not the One Direction heart-throb himself, but his printed shirt.

Fresh off the Burberry Prorsum autumn/winter 13 runway, Harry's designer heart print has since been worn by Victoria Beckham, Alexa Chung and even rock legend Rod Stewart. In short, it's become the 'It print' of the season.

And it's not hard to fall in love with this micro trend. The uplifting power print is an on-trend alternative to polka dots and can be worn in a subtle way, with miniature hearts, or by really showing the love with statement oversized prints. But think glossy and grown-up, rather than schoolgirl cute.

Don't wait for Valentine's Day - wear your heart on your sleeve (or trousers, dress, skirt...) right now with these romantic finds.
