The evenings are brighter, the leaves are greener, and the daffodils are just starting to push their noses through the soil. That’s right—spring is almost upon us.
After the relentless gloom of winter, I think I speak for all of us when I say the season of fresh beginnings couldn’t come soon enough. It’s a regenerative time, and not just for nature. We all need a boost of positivity and newness, our wardrobes included, so it’s prime time to assess the sartorial gaps that need filling.
Are you seeking a lightweight jacket to replace your bulky wool coat? Or maybe you’re ready to ditch the chunky boots in favour of ankle-baring footwear. Wherever your priorities lie, the process of creating a spring wish list is best kicked off with some inspiration. We already shared the items our editors are lusting after, so next, I consulted seven of Instagram’s savviest dressers to see what’s on their radar for the coming months.

1. ESTEE LALONDE
2. LÉNA FARL
“I adore this flower top from & Other Stories! I had the chance to try it during the collection presentation in the brand’s Parisian Atelier and fell immediately in love… This is a very trendy statement piece that can add a little touch of drama and originality to any outfit.”
3. TAFFY MSIPA
4. TANICE ELIZABETH
5. TAYLOR LASHAE
“I like to keep my style on the neutral side so blacks, whites and creams are always my go-to. I have a couple of dresses from this brand already and basically live in them... Seeing this one hit their spring collection, my wallet is out and ready to go.”
“Here is the part where I say, 'Look! I picked something colourful for my wish list.' Lately, my favourite colour for warmer days has been green. I live for a floor-length dress that's as comfortable at home as it is running my errands.”
“Last but by no means least, I can't finish this wish list without a pair of KILLER black boots. Celine has always nailed a striking silhouette and they’ve come through hard with these cowboy boots!”
6. LORNA (SYMPHONY OF SILK)
“This blazer is a wardrobe staple and the satin trim lapel gives it an elevated feel. It would look great styled with a white t-shirt, blue jeans and a pair of heels. I'll also style it with black trousers and a black lace trim cami for an evening out.”
7. KIM TURKINGTON
“Cargo trousers are having a bit of a moment. I love this tailored style from The Frankie Shop, in both the beige and the rich army green. I'd wear it dressed down with a white fitted tank top or all out with the matching waistcoat.”
“As a bit of a denim obsessive, I have this Mother jumpsuit on my wish list. This one from Mango is a great high-street version, too.”
