With our anticipation of spring ever-increasing, we're starting to focus on wardrobe basics that we can layer-up now, then wear with sandals and shorts come summer. Whatever your personal style, tops are bound to be one of the central pillars of your transeasonal capsule, and we've spotted seven high-street style in particular that seem to be trending ahead of the new season.
Using information gathered from our site, we've identified some real winners from the likes of Weekday, COS, Arket and & Other Stories that have been given the WWW reader seal of approval. All of the below were undoubtedly picked out for their "elevated basic" aesthetic, which means you can throw on with your favourite jeans with minimal fuss. The results are a mix of classic long-sleeved tops, smarter blouses and, of course, the odd WFH loungewear staple.
My favourite has to be the second-skin top, as seen in COS and Weekday, as they can be layered under shirts and knit vests or tucked into high-waisted trousers. I might just have to buy COS's tie-dye iteration, as I doubt it'll stick around for long. So if you're looking to invest in an affordable yet versatile spring gem, look no further than these trending high-street tops. Scroll down to see what's selling now.
Weekday Tie-Dye Tops
Weekday's tie-dye top has been a real favourite amongst our readers, specifically the black iteration. We can certainly see why with that price point.
Arket Oversized Shirt
When it comes to basics, you can't get much better than Arket. Case in point? These oversized shirts will look good all year round with everything from layered roll-necks to shorts.
H&M Ruffled Collar Blouses
Clearly the Princess Di affect is being felt right now, because H&M's '80s-inspired ruffled neck collar blouses are getting plenty of attention. The denim iteration is definitely a personal highlight.
& Other Stories Boxy Sweatshirt
Ah, yes, the humble hoodie, once contained to sportswear, it has risen to new heights over lockdown with its comfy appeal. Elevate yours with tailored trousers, loafers and gold jewellery.
Monki Double-Breasted Blouse
Another top and another ruffled neckline, but this time courtesy of Monki. Coming in cream, yellow and black, this double-breasted blouse is sure to add throwback vibes to high-waisted jeans.
COS Printed Tops
I bought a slim-fit, printed top from COS two years ago and have worn at least once a week ever since. This year's styles come in eclectic prints, such as tie-dye and brown and black abstract lines.
