Marks and Spencer has been knocking it out of the park with its latest collections. So much so, you’d be forgiven for thinking the brand had already reached its stylish peak this year. Then we laid eyes on M&S’s summer edit, and it became blatantly clear that the affordable fashion hot spot was just getting started, and its warm-weather drop is, quite simply, one of its best yet.
Having presided over the Great British high street for over a century, Marks and Spencer is known for serving up the best basics in the business. Its lingerie collection is unrivalled, as is its edit of high-quality linen. However, over the past few years, M&S has proven it has serious style credentials, too, not merely by tapping into the top trends but also by starting them. And that’s precisely what its latest host of wares and accessories will do: define the fashion agenda for the summer season.
While jetting off on an exotic getaway might be currently out of the question, M&S has hit the sweet spot with its edit of impressive summer staples that work perfectly for our plans. Designed to carry you through the easing of lockdown restrictions and reuniting with friends for al fresco dining all the way to packing your weekender bag for an idyllic staycation on Brit soil, M&S is fast becoming our one-stop shop for the season ahead. In fact, you need only glance at its new-in section to see that the brand has practically assembled the perfect summer capsule wardrobe for you.
