What's the best theme for a beginner to set up on their online store?

Hi! I’m thinking of changing my store theme which I’ve had for 6 years from Minimal to what I’m not sure! I have a few that I like the looks of - Craft, Studio, and Taste. If you could look at my store, www.lovelissylou.com maybe you’ll have other suggestions too, and if anyone has one of the ones I mentioned I’d love to know your thoughts. 
I’m definitely looking for one that is easy to setup, I have no experience with designing a website at all!! Thanks in advance!

Thank you for sharing your store URL. This allowed me to go through your site.

You can use other free shopify themes like Debut, Narrative, Brooklyn playful style.

Apart from theme changing there are various changes that can be made to the current theme too.


Header:
1. Announcement bar Missing for Special announcement or promotion 

2.Logo Should be high quality.

              You can follow this.

Homepage: (First Impression is the last impression)

The homepage is the first landing page your customers will see after opening the website. Some of the enhancing feature that can be added are:

1. Add Featured Collections on Home Page with add to cart button.
