Diane von Fursteberg Love (£61.50) is a stylish red currant and apricot nectar cocktail with a heart of seductive jasmine.

Part of the fun of special occasion dressing is the search for the perfect dress! However if you opt for designer that usually means making an investment which can be costly for a one off occasion. So, a simple solution would be to rent a dress enabling you to look like the A-list for a fraction of the price! Friend of ShopStyle Girl Meets Dress have an incredible range of prom and special occasion designer dresses available to rent with new styles arriving regularly. Holding designer names such as Herve Leger, Roland Mouret, Marc Jacobs and Alexander McQueen, it's never been easier to dress like a celebrity! We fell in love with the gold silk blend gown by Diva Sophia as worn by Jessica Alba, which is just (£39) to hire (retail price £250). Browse a selection of equally stunning Girl Meets Dress prom dresses below!
The clocks go forward an hour this weekend (Sunday 31 March) and to celebrate why not invest in a fresh new timepiece? Marc by Marc Jacobs watches are really standing out to us right now, their fab new season selection includes neon brights, on-trend white, bold metallics and muted metallics with soft mink leathers.

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.

Here's a cool way to keep warm this weekend courtesy of Cara Delevingne! A neon hat will turn heads on the greyest of days and this design from Dimepiece we think would also make the perfect head gear if you're a skier or snowboarder setting off for the slopes! That said, whether you enjoy this very specific kind of 'street' style or not you can still buy into the trend. Neon is big this SS'13, we'll be wearing it with a hot pink Christopher Kane biker jacket (£440) which would clash beautifully with an Alexander McQueen Scarf (£200) from Selfridges. Brighten up your day by shopping a selection of neon essentials below!

One trend you are probably aware of by now due to the amount in stores and celebs seen sporting the look is the monochrome trend. Let's face it, black and white looks good on everyone and at any time of year so it's always a great investment and never too soon to start wearing it! On the SS'13 catwalks black and white designs were seen at Jill Sander, Alexander Wang, Balenciaga and Marc Jacobs worn as both seprates and stripes, patterns and florals. One of our favourite ways to wear the look was from Dolce and Gabbana, who proved that simple black and white stripes work just as well in high summer, especially worn as playful shorts accessorized with colourful ethnic earrings. Shop the look from just a few of these designers below.
