The Under-£100 High-Street Buys Brightening Up Our Week

Joy Montgomery

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.
