Here at Who What Wear UK, we firmly believe that you don't need to part with serious cash to get your hands on that perfect mood-lifting look, and with the high street offering up plenty of winning spring buys right now (thank you, Arket, Mango, H&M et al), giving your wardrobe a refresh just got a little bit easier. Add to this the fact that the high street is longer reserved for transient trends (and instead, developing its offering of time-tested staples) and you've got yourself a winning combo.
Case in point: On our wish lists this month is everything from COS' chic jumpsuit and Arket's kaftan dress to Mango's blazer & Whistles' utility shacket. Together, they make the ideal new season capsule. So much goodness, so little time. So if you're looking for that little sartorial pick-me-up, keep scrolling to see which hero buys we're wanting to add to your basket this month.
