Out of All the High-Street Spring Collections, These Are By Far the Best

As much as we love a good bargain, we have to admit that we’re a little relieved to see the back of the Christmas sales. Stores will soon be revived to their original, neatly stacked glory, and online edits no longer clogged up with items that are either unwanted or only available in a size 4. 

On Joy Montgomery: Belted Patch Pocket Tweed Jacket, £120.

Yes, we’re ready for a style spring clean, and as a team, we’ve spent the last few weeks combing through our closets to ensure we’re starting the new season with the best setup. In other words, a versatile capsule filled with items we actually want to wear and will continue to love for many seasons to come.

Often in the process of conducting a clearout, you can end up spotting the holes in your wardrobe. If you’re looking for a hardworking buy to complete your collection, we’ve done the hard work for you and picked the best of the best on the high street right now. From & Other Stories’ layerable jackets and Topshop’s surprisingly expensive-looking staples to Zara’s trend-led buys and COS’s minimal winners, scroll down to see and shop our complete edit.
