Top 4 Spring Trends
FOLK BO-HO TREND

Baby pink and baby blue seem to be among some of the most searched colors in the last period on Google (+30% and +47% more searches compared to the previous year) – but it’s not just because spring is right around the corner . This year one of the biggest trends of the moment is “Baby Chic”!
