1. Polka Dots
Polka dots are a huge trend this season. Small dots, big dots. On tops, skirts, pants. They're all over the place, and can be so chic! They're comparable to the ever-classic stripe, but just a little more quirky, like a fun European cousin!

2. Colourful blazers/suits:
Trade in your usual basic trouser and blazer combo for something a little more fun, in a funky new spring colour. Pair the kit with a simple white tshirt and sneakers or a trendy white shoe and you're all set for a day at the office and then drinks out on a terrace!

3. Retro sunglasses:
Dig into your moms old sunglasses collection and throw on a chic, vintage pair of glasses! This spring and summer, it's all about either tiny frames or big, round ones. Take your pick, and show it off to the world this season!

4. Fanny Packs:
The 90's are definitely back! The fanny pack is a huge trend this season - either worn around the waist or slung across your chest. However, this trend isn't reminiscent of your parents' old travel bag. This season, they're more chic - think more elevated with leather, suede, etc.

5. White Shoes:
