All Our Editors Agree These Are the Best M&S Pieces to Buy for Spring

We Brits have long relied on Marks and Spencer. Before online shopping was even a thing, it was there for us for everything from school supplies to underwear and, of course, the all-important coats and boots. There may now be a plethora of places to turn to for your new-season wardrobe, but M&S has remained one of our favourite high-street go-tos, and for good reason. We rely on it for the essentials, but also, in recent years, the brand has stepped up its fashion game and provided us with some seriously stylish additions that boast both quality and good looks. 

As a team, we’re not embarrassed to say we have a passion for scrolling through the M&S website or popping into our local store on our lunch break to browse the new-in sections. So often, we've come away with a real gem—something like the perfect spring jacket, leather trousers or cashmere knit—that goes on to hold a place in our wardrobes for years. Can you really blame us, then, for our rather unconventional hobby? 

So as spring 2022 gets well underway, and wardrobe refreshes and new-season shake-ups abound, we thought we’d put our talents to good use and provide you with an edit of the pieces from M&S we really love right now. There are obviously plenty of great throw-on dresses and spring jackets, but we're also really impressed with the denim and shoe selections. Keep scrolling to shop.

1. Dresses

I have a feeling this is going to be the 2022 version of Zara's sell-out polka-dot dress. 

If you love knitted dresses in winter, this is the spring version. 

So great for heatwaves with a denim jacket over your shoulders and chunky sandals. 

I saw this in store the other day, and it's just as nice in real life. 

2. Spring Shoes

Every fashion person wants a pair of suede clogs this season. 

Nothing beats a pair of minimalist sandals, though. 

3. Wide-Leg Trousers

A great smart, comfy trouser option for spring—and it looks great with sandals. 

These have been the most-wanted trousers on Who What Wear this week, and for good reason. 

4. Jeans

So good with a simple white T-shirt and trainers. 

5. Light Jackets

So light and airy—it will also look great over jeans. 

6. Spring Knits

I love this whole outfit, but the striped knit is the cherry on top. 

The beige stripes bring this jumper into spring instantly. Wear it under your trench coat. 

Such a pretty weekend jumper. It will look great with wide-leg trousers. 

The entire Who What Wear UK team is obsessed with M&S cashmere for its quality, and this is the perfect spring update. 

7. Linen

I'm predicting these shorts will sell out this summer. 

Everyone needs a crisp white linen shirt in their spring/summer capsule. 

These easy linen trousers are the kind of thing you'll wear all summer, and they come in black, navy, white and striped fabric too. 

This dress will be a wardrobe hero for many years.
