Finally, spring is officially here. It seems the shops are as keen to usher in the season as we are, and they've already been stocking the top trends. We're so happy to see a shift in countless new-in sections. Instead of being dominated by heavy coats and chunky boots, we’re now seeing lightweight frocks, linen fabrics and straw accessories come into bloom. However, there are three brands that seem to be leading the spring style pack: & Other Stories, H&M and Warehouse.

So, & Other Stories has essentially created the perfect spring capsule wardrobe with its pretty knitwear (it is Britain, after all), printed midi dresses and tailored blazers. Meanwhile, H&M has served up so many could-be designer statement pieces. Over at Warehouse, the brand has focused its energy on versatile pieces that’ll see you through the workweek right through to Saturday night. We took it upon ourselves to sift through all the linen and cotton to bring you the best springtime staples from all three stores. Keep scrolling to see and shop our favourite finds below…
