The 9 best high street buys to update your spring wardrobe

As the lockdown limitations are loosened more, indoor socialising and dining are once again possible, prompting us to choose our reentry’ clothes.

Retail and clothing stores have reopened, so now is a great time to update your wardrobe in preparation for the warmer weather ahead. Street fashion has now become a trend and hence, here are some of the best high street buys to upgrade your spring wardrobe.

The dungarees

With any type of heatwave still seeming a long way off, we have been looking for things that are a step up from jeans and sweaters while yet being warm. Dungarees are ideal for this since they have a summery, cheerful air to them, yet they can easily be layered.

This khaki colored dungaree is the perfect high street buy for your street fashion look.

Underneath, go for a fine merino polo neck or frilled-collar shirt now, a Breton top when the weather warms up, and a simple tee if it’s absolutely hot. Use a chore jacket over the top to keep the outfit functional, or use the simple overalls as a canvas for one of this season’s patchwork or quilted coats.

The ombre knit

This ombre cashmere knit is an absolute classic. It is such a great high street buy and perfect for a classy yet street fashion look. This is the pinnacle of what M&S excels at and should do more of. It’s great value for money, and it’s both traditional and intriguing. Plus, because it’s from M&S, it’s made in a sustainable and compassionate manner and it’s machine washable. The pink version of this is just as good as the blue version.

This is a spring weight, which is ideal for now. It looks great with slacks and jeans. Pair it with a flowing black-and-white midi skirt or a pink silk dress once it’s warm enough to go bare-legged.

The linen trouser suit

This linen trouser suit is a class act, with many features that make it appear like a premium item, made from French flax, woven in Europe, and cut on a modern, slouchy block. Vents, top stitching, and three buttons that shut high enough on the torso to wear alone or over a silky camisole – a perfect high street buy for a chic street fashion look. The matching elasticated-waist trousers are absolutely adorable and is the ideal blend of delicate tailoring and ease. This was supposed to be out early last autumn, hence the discount, which makes it an even better value.

That jacket looks like a cardigan when worn with flat sandals or trainers and a relaxed demeanour, as depicted. Or a neon cami with strappy, delicate kitten-heeled shoes, chunky gold jewellery, and strappy, delicate kitten-heeled sandals. Alternatively, a black lace one. You can also break apart the suit. The pants look great with an oversized navy or black sweater, and the jacket looks well with tea dresses. Season’s best deal for sure. 

The updated trench

A trench coat will never go out of style and is a classic high street buy. But it’s always fascinating to see how retailers reinvent the classic shape each year. Although scrolling is required, next offers several exquisite pieces that appear to be much more expensive than they are — the above shown contrast lapel design is an example.

With its hood and gathered cuffs to keep the draughts out, this is a truly functional trench that will look well and will give a great street fashion look. Consider this the spring equivalent of your winter duvet coat; layer it over jeans and sneakers for a stroll or an outside lunch. You could even pair it with fitted pants and a shirt for a return to the office.

The polka dot sundress

Polka dots are equally as springtime as gingham and flowers, but they’re considerably less common in a wardrobe who’s into street fashion looks. This adorable sundress features a smocked top and a slightly flared A-line skirt that appears to be long enough to keep you looking presentable during a park picnic. It is the perfect high street buy. 

This can be paired up with a silk headpiece and plimsolls, or with retro cat-eye sunglasses and red shoes. Sure, you’ll want to layer it with a thick cardigan, but perhaps you’ll be able to leave it at home as the weather warms up. 

The grown-up basket bag

There’s a reason basket bags are a perennial summer favourite and a great high street buy. Traditional straw and raffia variants, on the other hand, may snag all but the most durable clothes. This woven bucket bag has the simplicity of a more rural style but with a smoother finish that makes it somewhat more chic for a street fashion look.

Style the bag with a breezy peasant blouse and worn-in denim to channel the bag’s Seventies feel. Alternatively, pair it with a polka dot sundress for a style that’s as summery as a trip to the beach.

The picnic blouse

This spring, a picnic-ready blouse with a dramatic collar is a great high street buy for a fun street fashion look. The sky blue cheesecloth fabric and the white sailor collar with a scalloped and stitched twist are two amazing favourite features of this one from the Plenty by Tracy Reese line at Anthropologie. The dart shape on the blouse’s waist makes it look and fit like a high-end designer piece – and it’s part of Anthropologie’s newly expanded sizing range, which now includes sizes 6 to 26.

Easy pale blue denim jeans or white chinos would be the greatest complement in a balanced ensemble because the blouse does all the talking. Use your shoes or bags to highlight the burnt orange or pale gold embroidery on the collar.

The denim boiler suit

We all know how comfortable a jumpsuit is to wear; it instantly makes a person  feel put-together even when they are not. This makes it a great high street pick. However, for a more casual version, this Hush denim piece will be perfect street fashion pick for running errands and meeting friends on weekends.

For now, pair it with Converse high-tops and a long-sleeved tee, but as the weather heats up, wear it alone. A colourful crossbody bag will round off the ensemble.

The garden skirt

Is there anything that says summer quite like a ditsy flower pattern skirt? The hem of this Garden print maxi skirt by Fat Face features a flared hem for more swish and is such a pretty high street buy. It strikes the ideal chic-casual street fashion mix for laid-back outdoor get-togethers.

The beautiful ruffles of this skirt will be balanced out with chunky shoes. Choose a black leather fisherman’s sandal with a lot of straps, or a multicoloured Teva version with a plain white T-shirt for a contrast.
