Spring, if it ever really arrives, is a great time to freshen and liven up your casual wardrobe, picking up pieces that look great worn with the season's cropped denims and holiday-themed pieces. I've gone a bit dotty for these red polka-dot Converse hi-tops today:


A new pair of Converse is a new season's essential for those who like to keep it laid-back, and I particularly love this version of the iconic shoe. The small white dots look seriously cute against the cherry red backdrop, and I can already picture them with my half-mast jeans and a red and white pinstripe top. 

The dotted uppers of these shoes can also be peeled down for extra customisation, allowing you to wear them in a number of ways: the inside of the outer canvas has a reverse print effect with large-scale red dots against a white background for a sharp, contrast effect. Definitely channelling the op-art trend in a major (and very stylish) way!

Converse DottyTwo-Fold hi-tops are available to buy at £55 from Schuh
