Whenever I think I'm pretty good at finding the best fashion items on the market, I read my fellow editors' stories and am blown away.  They know the art of "the hunt" through and through, and are always finding the items that are sure to sell out as quickly as you can hit "add to cart." Out of my own genuine curiosity and to give you an inside scoop on what they're shopping for recently, I asked the WWW team for the goodies that are on their spring shopping wish lists. 

As their answers trickled in, my excitement grew, so you know they delivered and did it well. From the coolest items at Zara to new drops straight off the runway, their selection consists of must-have items you're going to want to take a look at. Don't believe me? Just keep scrolling and see for yourself.

"This new Rixo dress has mermaids on it. I really don't think it needs much more of an explanation."

"Every spring I find myself needing a new pair of black strappy sandals. I wear them relentlessly all throughout spring and summer so it's always a purchase I really appreciate making. This low-heel buckle version feels right for 2021." 

 

"I am loving Zara's new colored denim. It's affordable and makes any basic tee, tank, or shirt feel ten times cooler."

"As usual, Staud keeps their foot firmly placed on my neck with their most recent Spring 2021 collection. This beaded giraffe bag broke me; I need it."

 

"Anything with tiny-ties and cutouts is a must-have for my spring wardrobe, but I don't necessarily want to over-spend on the trend—no matter how obsessed I am. So this affordable, and chic tie-up skirt from AFRM is on my must-have list."

 

"Spring always ushers in my search for the perfect summer sandal that's stylish while still being comfortable enough to wear around the city—dare I say this Cult Gaia sandal is just that?"

"Lately, I've been trying to curb my appetite for ultra-trendy pieces and invest in more timeless items like this oversize blazer. The pastel pinstripes feel so right for now but I also just know it's something I'd keep wearing long past this season."

 

"I've had this Miaou corset in my cart ever since I saw it on the brand's Instagram back in October. Five months later and I'm still swooning—probably a sign I need to just buy it already."

 

"'90s mules are the trend that just keeps getting better and better. I love this version we designed that features details like baby buckles and a calf hair finish that makes them look much pricier than they really are."

 

"How pretty are these ruched heels?"

 

"I've been living in a sports bra these days and like the idea of swapping in a cool designer version to style with baggy jeans and an upsized button-down."

 

"Matthew M. Williams' first collection for Givenchy was one of the standouts for spring and I can't stop thinking about this stunning 2D bag."

"It's still all about the sweater vest this season. I'm into the longline silhouette here."

"The mini bag trend is still going strong in my eyes, and I'm loving this fresh pick."

"You can't go wrong with a fresh pair of sneakers for the season."

"I always miss wearing dresses by late winter, so right now I'm very inclined to order one from one of my favorite warm-weather brands, Ciao Lucia."

"If you haven't gotten a pair of flatform flip-flops yet, what are you waiting for? I have my eye on this affordable pair."

"I thought I was over tie-dye until I saw this shirt."

"I can’t wait to add more color to my wardrobe this spring, and this beautiful magenta backless dress from Zara is the perfect way to do it."

"Can you tell I’m on a dress kick? Nothing says spring quite like a pretty floral frock. I love the Bridgerton vibes of this Reformation print."

"I haven’t bought a new bag in a really long time. This soft suede silhouette in a beautiful dusty rose hue is high up on my wish list for spring."

"Gold hoops are just one of those things I can't help but continue to buy. The claw shape is really unique, which will stand out within my collection."

"Sadly I missed out on the Ganni version of this, so I'm determined to snag this before it too sells out."

"It's probably already time to start thinking about sandals, but I'm a boots girl through and through. They're color-blocked with almost every neutral shade imaginable, so yeah I can wear them with everything."

"When Ganni first released these bags, I freaked out a little. They come in a variety of colors and have the most perfect handle—what's not to love?"

"If I'm going to be heading to the beach anytime soon, these chic leather slides are going to be coming with me."

"I've been eyeing these crisscross jeans for a very long time, and I think I'm going to pull the plug this season. Just imagine how good it would pair with any spring blouse."
