Harriet Davey

Here at Who What Wear UK, we firmly believe that you don't need to part with serious cash to get your hands on a trend-led buy, and with the high street coming out on top right now (thank you, ASOS, Topshop, Mango and more), giving your wardrobe a quick refresh is easier and cheaper than ever. From H&M's expensive-looking midi dress to the Ganni hat we'll be wearing all spring, nothing beats a relatively guilt-free mid-month purchase.

So if you're looking for that little sartorial pick-me-up, keep scrolling to see which hero buys we're predicting will go big.
