There are certain items (often from Zara) that I see women wearing almost every day on my commute. There have even been Instagram accounts set up in order to showcase these cult pieces, such as that blue-and-white Zara coat. I did some thorough research to discover the most-spotted items this month (i.e., I asked the Who What Wear UK office and put the question into all my WhatsApp groups) to see which pieces were the most popular in London. It quickly became clear that there are some high-street hits you're bound to see on any London city block or Underground station. In fact, you might already own some of them. Keep scrolling to see the seven items we're seeing all over London.

1. Bridgerton Frocks

Reformation's printed dresses have been a phenomenal hit this season, especially the styles that look like they could have been plucked straight out of a period drama, with details like puff sleeves, sweetheart necklines, and bowties.

Zara Printed Mini Dress ($40)

Wayf Tie Back Puff Sleeve Mini Dress ($118)

2. Vintage-Inspired Cardigans

Cardigans have become a London girl's uniform. Fast fashion and designer labels are all stocking vintage-inspired versions with charming embroidery and crochet detailing that we can only categorize as "grandma-chic".

LoveShackFancy Briallon Embroidered Knitted Cardigan ($445)

& Other Stories Cropped Cable Knit Cardigan ($119)

3. Tan Trench Coat

When it comes to layering, classic tan, double-breasted trench coats have been taking over.

ASOS Design Trench Coat in Stone ($69)

H&M Double-Breasted Trenchcoat ($80)

4. Pops of Pinstripe

Every London girl knows that a great blazer is essential to a chic wardrobe. This spring, add a polished feel with a pinstriped jacket.

Reformation Dama Pinstripe Cady Blazer ($248)

Ganni Double Breasted Pinstripe Blazer ($395)

Loulou Studio Ficaja Double-Breasted Pinstriped Stretch-Wool Blazer ($445)

5. Prairie Collars

We can't stop seeing oversize collars on the streets of London. We all remember the costume design in Little House on the Prairie, right? Well, they're like this but chicer.

Lisa Says Gah Wendy Short Sleeve Top ($112)

Ganni Ruffled Checked Organic Cotton-Blend Seersucker Blouse ($205)

& Other Stories Embroidered Collar Puff Sleeve Cotton Blouse ($53)

6. Cushy Flip-Flops

Platform thong sandals have burst onto the fashion scene en masse this spring, but we can't stop seeing them more than ever in our London friends' feeds. Whether styled with a pretty sundress or a classic pair of jeans (as seen above), we predict they'll be the London girl's go-to sandals for the season.

The Row Ginza Two-Tone Leather and Suede Platform Flip Flops ($790)

Stella McCartney Air Slide Recycled Canvas Flip Flops ($325)

Vagabond Shoemakers Erin Flip Flops ($100)

7. Tangerine Frocks

Tangerine is a runway trend we didn't think many people would adopt this year. However, every day, I see someone else sporting the tangy hue. They're especially a favorite in any one of spring's freshest frocks, which tells me that come summer, a tangerine dress may become a must-have.

Rejina Pyo Kit Button-Embellished Woven Midi Dress ($835)

Eloquii Jersey Tank Maxi Dress ($100)

H&M Linen-Blend Dress ($25)
