Trust Me, I'm an Editor—Here Are 20 Things I Want to Buy Before Spring Arrives

Working at Who What Wear UK requires spending a lot of time browsing new-in sections, meaning our personal shopping lists are rather extensive. I'm a relatively safe dresser and avoid anything too loud or likely to date, so I tend to favour classic tailoring, pretty midi dresses and blouses worn with jeans.

So what's caught my eye for spring? It might still be freezing outside, but after already writing numerous stories on spring 2020 style, I'm starting to think of shorts, T-shirts and linen separates. My wish list this month looks like a pastel rainbow, as I'm gravitating towards items in sage green, soft pinks and baby blues. But I'm also eyeing up some more practical items for spring too, such as chunky boots by Dune and the chicest hoodie from Zara.
