37 High-Street Pieces That Are Destined for Cult Status

There used to be a time when all the new season items would arrive on the high street in the same week, if not within days of each other, however now the new-in sections are steadily updated and so are less defined by seasons. This means you might not have noticed that this week is when we have seen the real shift towards spring, with many of the complete spring collections now available to buy. This has been a focus for us on Who What Wear over the past seven days, as our editors have been sorting through the thousands of products to bring you concise edits of the best of the best items on the high street right now.

Our editors might be able to spot a cult high street buy a mile off, but we also like to crowdsource and see what other people are loving. So for this piece we have turned to some of our favourite influencers who are known for their sharp eye for spotting high street winners, and asked them to each share the six products that they think are destined for cult status this spring. Some themes have come up, with a strong love for Arket's spring collection, quilted coats and vests and a floral spring dress. But we were careful to pick people who had really different personal styles, so whether you are a jeans and a T-shirt kind of girl, or prefer to dress like a rainbow, we're sure there will be an item you love below.

Lindsey's Instagram feed is a burst of colour, as she leans towards pastels and prints, so it's no surprise that the next six items are colourful, printed, and oh-so joyful.

Rachael's wardrobe is the total opposite, as she sticks to classic pieces in a neutral colour palette of sands, camels, blacks and greys.
