Take your cue from the best of ’90s fashion by teaming a pretty pastel pinafore with a long-sleeved top in a complementary hue. This added layer underneath makes this ensemble ideal for the in-between weather we tend to experience in spring. Top off your look with a newsboy cap in light-wash denim.

Embrace the fun-loving, carefree vibe of the ’70s with a bell-sleeved dress in a comfortable, unfussy fabric – bonus points if you can find one of these with an eye-catching graphic print. If you’re into more moody hues, go for a deep oxblood colour while baby pink will offer an ethereal look.

The athleisure dress embraces streetwear and combines it with a feminine feel, creating the perfect contrast. Look for an athleisure dress in a mustard hue (still super on-trend!) with a graphic slogan print and press-stud detailing. For maximum impact, comb back part of your hair and keep in place with a row of diamond-encrusted barrettes.

If you’re lusting after a preppy look, a romper in vertical stripes is key. Layer a basic white tee underneath and you’re on-point. If ultra-girly isn’t your thing, a jumpsuit in edgy black is an awesome option, as it requires very little styling. The cold-shoulder version will ensure you show off a little skin; top off the look with crisp, all-white sneakers for massive street-style appeal.

Take your sports-luxe look to new heights with a pair of crisp white dad sneakers for massive street-style appeal. When the weather warms up, opt for a pair of uber-comfortable slides – either a trendy jelly version or opt for a furry pair that emulate RiRi’s Fenty slides and that will take your look from day to night.

Show off the carefully curated contents of your bag with a school-friendly throwback to the ’90s: the transparent backpack. For a chilled day at the market and easy access to your cash, a moon bag is ideal. Wear it across your body or on the hips for major cool points. And for those action-packed fun nights out? Sling a compact cross body bag with a vintage buckle over your chest before you head out the door.
