The High-Street Pieces That We Keep Seeing on Instagram This Month

The team at Who What Wear UK pride themselves on uncovering cult items before they've barely even made it to the production line. We're keen, to say the least, and a great portion of our time is spent documenting and analysing the Instagram posts of the thousands of cool women we follow on Instagram for high-street sightings. In fact, we have WhatsApp groups and Slack channels dedicated to these affordably priced power pieces, and we want to update you on them as soon as is humanly possible (aka after we've bought our faves) each and every week.

Our skills are so attuned that more often than not, we'll have an inkling over a certain piece before it has hit the big time on social media. Sometimes, you'll find a flurry of brand-specific action due to a paid activation or natural desire to wear a particular thing or label. But other times, it'll be a slow and steady accumulation of saved posts that start to make a trend clear to me—especially when a vast array of influencers start favouring the very same items over a longer period of time. Either way, please trust that we're on it.

Right now, there are some beautiful new-in summer items making a strong bid for inclusion in this gallery. From a new Topshop dress that is set to spike and an ASOS blouse we think is going to become an editor staple to a tie-dye midi that looks way beyond its high-street price tag, keep reading to see my picks of influencers wearing the latest high-street items.
