We live in confusing times. And no, we're not talking about the current political landscape. Instead, the point of our discussion today centres around something less monumental, but that's important to us nonetheless—fashion.
Right now, we find ourselves in the midst of what we like to call "swinter"—the in-between time where it's not quite winter, but not quite spring either. And much like the weather outside, the new-in sections of our favourite online shopping haunts are proving equally unpredictable. In one row, you'll find the likes of leather shirts, chunky knits and hiking boots. In the other, you'll find Bermuda shorts, slip-on sandals and slinky dresses.
As ever, we like to think of ourselves as forward-thinking. So we decided to sift through hundreds of pieces to bring you the very best spring garms you can wear now through June (and—let's face it—probably all summer, too).
Upon beginning our extensive research, we soon realised that much of our favourite pieces came from one of three stores: Topshop, Arket or H&M. With a host of chic treats, painted in the season's freshest hues, the offering from each store differs slightly: Arket is characteristically minimal, while H&M caters to a more casual audience. Topshop feels stronger than ever, with its edit of directional separates and statement prints.
Keep scrolling to see 24 gorgeous spring buys from Topshop, Arket and H&M, and you'll soon see what all the fuss is about.
