If it isn't abundantly obvious, the editors at Who What Wear love to shop, and there's a particular joy that comes with each of us possessing our own unique approach to personal style. From Emma's love of midi dresses to Hannah's penchant for shoes, our office is a veritable melting pot of tastes and obsessions. However, every once in a while, there are certain pieces that meet in the middle of our fashion Venn diagram—fulfilling all our needs and flattering all body shapes.
More often than not, these pieces are from the high street, undoubtedly due to the fact that the moment one of our fave stores releases an affordable gem, we're all onto it. Recent winners include Topshop's mesh dress, Zara's organza blouse and COS's painted jersey top—all united by unusual fabrics and silhouettes or universally flattering fits.
Because we love to be ahead of the game, we asked our editors to pick out four high-street pieces that they're coveting right now—aka items that will be a hit in the office in a month or two. From Uterqüe's chic accessories and Arket's leather separates to spring-ready dresses and pastel blouses, scroll down to see the 20 pieces our editors are going to be fighting over this spring.
"I'm in the market for nice tops at the moment, and this lovely sage-coloured one ticks a lot of boxes with its exaggerated sleeves and adjustable ruching. Good for those with boobs (me) and those without."
"The historical stats around my own wardrobe would show that I always get a great deal of wear out of tan shoes! Therefore, these beauties are a logical, strategic and highly sensible purchase to make."
"If spring isn't quite ready to arrive, I'll bring the sunshine season to my wardrobe instead with this marigold yellow dress. I'll wear it with white trainers now and then strappy heels come wedding season."
"I love everything about this red floral mini and know it's one of those dresses I'll wear time and time again come springtime. Plus, it would look great with tights, boots and a leather jacket in the colder months."
"I saw a girl wearing these in central London on the weekend and had to run after her to ask where they were from. Anything wide leg and cord is a winner in my eyes, and this green colour is so on trend right now."
