It seems everyone is getting engaged right now, from Millie Mackintosh and Professor Green, to Frankie Sandford and Wayne Bridge, our Twitter feed has been full engagement rings!

Friends of ShopStyle Monnier Frères have an unbeatable collection of Chloé rings, we particularly love the signature orange and red Holly enamelled ring (£120), the just in time for racing season horse shaped Faye ring (£228) and the free-spirited Vicky swallow ring (£85).

It's Mother's day on Sunday and we think the perfect gift to give is fragrance because it's a luxury item you're least likely to buy for yourself! That being said, fragrance is a very subjective thing, so when buying for others it's best to go for fragrances with either soft floral, fruit or vanilla notes as these are the most universally popular and perfect for spring.
For beautiful fresh florals suitable for everyday, we love Marc Jacobs Daisy, Chanel Coco Mademoiselle and Chloé Love which is a divine milky floral. There are also some fantastic fragrance sets which make great gifts, check out ones by Estee Lauder and Clarins below. Alternatively, if you're looking for a very specific scent or particular note 'rose' for example, Jo Malone should not be missed and all fragrances come in gorgeous gift boxes.
Shop a wide selection of fragrance suitable for Mother's day at House of Fraser below.
Our favourite mother Victoria Beckham and baby Harper. Victoria prefers her fragrance to be warm and floral with notes of lily and rose.

Tote bags are everywhere right now, and we are absolutely loving this trend! The word 'tote' means to 'carry' and distinguishing features include shorter straps which means one of the strongest and practical bag styles you can buy. Coming in a variety of shapes and sizes, it's an easy arm essential when you have lots to carry like Miranda Kerr here and her cute dog! Stand out styles to us this season are by Mulberry, Victoria Beckham and Balenciaga. Shop a selection of these brilliant bags below.
One of the most fashionable colours of the season that is cheering us up like a ray of sunshine right now is yellow! The shade can be seen in many SS'13 designer collections including Stella McCartney, Chloe and Dolce & Gabbana and the good news is it suits most skin tones. We thought Miranda Kerr looked lovely today wearing a yellow off the shoulder dress at a Victoria's Secret launch in NYC. So, time to follow suit by shopping a few of our favourite yellow pieces from (our favourite yellow store) Selfridges below!

If you want to break out of your dreary winter wardrobe by adding a pop of fun colour then we suggest starting with green. Why? Because it's the Pantone colour of 2013 and it's no coincidence many designers have incorporated the colour into their collections. We can't wait to work this essential new season shade starting with the Balmain mid rise skinny jeans (£897). We also love the super cute Chloé zip file medium tote (£182) which will instantly update any outfit with this uber cool colour. Trainers are a bit of an obsession with us, so as soon as we saw the mint Pieces babette trainers (£34) at Zalando, we just knew we had to have them! Step into spring by shopping a few of our green essentials below!
Here's a trend for the old romantics, one we're calling 'flouncy' because it's a beautifully billowy combination of frills, ruches and ruffles. Gucci showcased this ladylike look with flowing aqua silk (below), while Givenchy interpreted the trend with shirts in luxe fabrics with ruffle style bibs. At Marni, almost all skirts had a ruffle rim while Isabel Marant kept it casual with white frilly tops Spanish Senorita style. Make sure your wardrobe has the flounce factor by shopping just a few of our favourite frill must-haves below!
It's time to get things into perspextive this spring! Shoes, bags, jewellery, they all seem to have gone all plastic and peekaboo on us all over again for spring 2013. Here at ShopStyle HQ we love playing with fun trends and this spring we expect to see a lot of coloured and clear touches added to everyone's outfit, as seen at Burberry, Alexander McQueen and Chloe SS'13 shows. The Perspex trend is most certainly not going away anytime soon and we for one are not ready to say our goodbyes!
