This coming Valentine’s Day we are embracing the emerging aesthetic known as #lovecore with its kitsch take on classic motifs and colors.


Overview

This trend popularized by Gen Z on platforms like TikTok is showing new takes and juxtapositions of elements typically associated with the romantic holiday. Think pink and red hearts, flowers, candies, love letters and cupid for your sweet designs this week.
