The Best High-Street Buys We've Seen on Instagram This Month

At Who What Wear UK, we pride ourselves on predicting the next big cult item before it even makes it to the shop floor in order to get you the best possible insider info. We're keen, to say the least, which means we'll scour the posts of the thousands of fashionable people we follow on Instagram for unexpected high-street sightings to share with you (that is, after we've bought and tested our faves).

Our skills are so attuned that, more often than not, we'll have an inkling about a certain piece before it hits the big time. Other times, we do a quick scroll through our Saved posts before we notice a burgeoning trend. Either way, you can trust that we're on it.

Right now, there are some beautiful items making a strong bid for inclusion in this gallery, from the ultimate pair of jeans to the accessories that look way beyond their high-street price tags. Keep reading to see our picks of influencers wearing the latest high-street items.

Linen trousers are a summertime staple—one that Boden has nailed with this slightly tapered style. We love Karina’s shocking-pink pair, but if you prefer muted colours, they also come in white and chambray blue, amongst others.

You might not think it, but platforms are often the most comfortable heel option for special occasions. Follow Erica’s lead and pair this stripy iteration from LK Bennett with a checked dress for a chic motif mash-up.
