I hate to brag, but I do think that Who What Wear's editorial team has rather exceptional taste. Biased? Me? Never. But really, it's our job to be on top of these things and pinpoint the items that we think are actually worth the investment of your hard-earned cash. With the new season finally kicking in, we felt it was time to share the high-street wish lists that we've been carefully compiling over the last month or two.
There is a certain art to shopping the high street, and we've found that the dictum "patience is a virtue" is a helpful approach in this context. It's all about utilising the bookmark or "like" feature, which allows you to add something to a wish list that you can then peruse at your leisure. Trust us. Sometimes, time and distance can be key to not making a rushed, badly judged purchase and instead nabbing that time-tested wardrobe hero.
All of the below items are pieces our editors have personally vetted through this process, and I can confirm they all passed with flying colours. I love that each of our editors has their own unique aesthetic, from Emma's penchant for a pop of pink to Zoe's inclination towards a puffed sleeve. I have no doubt that there'll be an item that aligns with your own style. So if you fancy finding out the high-street buys we're coveting this season, simply scroll on down.
As I get so much wear out of my gold jewellery pieces, I'm forever adding to the collection because these items are worn regularly. I think this wiggly choker looks far more expensive than its £18 price tag.
I almost couldn't bring myself to share this set with you—it's that good! I'm a forever fan of gingham and checks, so when they come back into fashion, I snap them up for both now and the future. This lilac co-ord from Spanish brand Uterqüe is a real showstopper when worn together, but the puff-sleeve top would also look great styled casually with jeans or a denim midi skirt.
I'm surprised more accessories aren't made of denim. The fabric will literally go with everything you already own. High heels are out for me, and kitten-heel mules will be the way I indulge my footwear love this year.
