The Silk Scarf
Delicate, colourful silk scarves are all the rage at the moment. Bloggers and influencers have been seen sporting it with their Coachella outfits, and all of the high street stores are displaying little scarves in a variety of luminous shades. Zara carries a wide range of these silk scarves, which can be found here, or here. Pair your scarf with an airy white blouse, flared jeans, and a pair of slide-on flats.
The Newsboy Cap
Gigi Hadid, covering January’s issue of Vogue, is wearing the new trend, pairing it with a striped sweater and leather jacket. The new trend has also been sported by her sister, Bella Hadid, who pairs it both casually with a simple white tee but also dressed it up with a sheer top and a denim mini skirt. Ditch your standard baseball cap, and get on trend with the short brimmed structured hat. Purchase yours at Asos.
The Vacation Floppy Hat

The Oversized Frames
Forgetting your sunglasses when you’re out in the sun is the absolute worst! This season, huge frames are here to stay. You no longer have to make a fuss about applying your makeup; just throw on some oversized sunglasses and enjoy the spring air. This trend can be worn with any outfit. All you need is some sunnies to complete the look. Get yours here or here.
The Comfortable Slip-Ons
Comfortable slip-on loafers decorated with a fluffy interior or a buckle design are the perfect shoe to take on and off during the warmer spring/summer months. They are also easy to style since they go with any outfit. Pair them up with a simple casual knee length skirt and a tee for an effortlessly chic look. Add a biker jacket and some chunky earrings to add some edge. Gucci sparked the trend and love for these slip-ons, but the price tag is quite hefty. Since the shoes are such a trendy piece, it is better to save your money and get a cheaper option. Buy yours here, or here for a fraction of the price.
