Give your spring wardrobe a 2023 refresh – unexpected metallics, zingy pastels (think limes and lilacs), low-rise jeans, oversize bucket bags and ballet-inspired shoe designs are going to be huge this year so lead the looks with Marks & Spencer, Next, H&M, River Island, New Look, Primark and TK Maxx and accessories from Claire’s, Swarovski, Beaverbrooks, Goldsmiths and H Samuel.

There are also really cute kids’ creations (who can resist a bunny-eared cardigan for babies) at Marks & Spencer, Mamas & Papas and Next.

Upgrade your beauty bag in this season’s colour-popping bright lip and nail shades or invest in 2023’s multitasking skin products at Boots, TK Maxx and Superdrug. Spring has arrived!
