We can't wait for spring to be filled with picnics in the park, al fresco lunches and beer-garden hang-outs. As such, we're already dreaming up the ensembles we'll wear for said sunny events. If you too are starting to outfit-plan, please allow us to turn your attention to the three brands leading the spring shopping charge.
Arket, COS and H&M consistently catch our attention with their on-trend wares, but this spring, they seem to have outdone even themselves with their impressive array of style-defining pieces. Each retailer has created springtime edits that tick off the season's biggest trends. Think pastel shades, slouchy tailoring, ribbed knitwear and beautiful dresses—all at prices that won't bring a tear to your eye. But don't just take our word for it. Let us show you. Scroll below to see the nine items you absolutely can't miss from each store.
