Here are few tips to strike the balance between professional and trendy.

Trend 2: #Polka Dots

Polka dots are considered classic prints and as such are never really out of fashion, a great way to wear this trend is to wear as a dress while keeping accessories to the minimal. Consider throwing on a blazer or a cardigan over a polka dot dress to tone it down if this is considered too loud at your work setting.
