It's been a tough few years for the Great British high street, with every month seeing different challenges, from lockdowns to lay-offs. Yet behind the media coverage, Marks and Spencer (surely one of the longest-standing members of the affordable-fashion community) is continuing to do what it does best: deliver timeless, well-executed staples for the shopping public.

When it comes to fashion, spring is always a tricky time of year as temperatures become somewhat inconsistent, but it's safe to say that the air is getting warmer by the day. Anything we invest in now has to be versatile and adaptable for whatever the seasonal weather throws at us, and M&S has the solution. Its online store is packed full of timeless gems that will blend seamlessly into your capsule wardrobe and adapt to your ever-changing fashion needs. Really, it's not rocket science. It's just about keeping your eyes peeled for those time-tested faves, such as Breton tops, classic jeans, white shirts, and layer-friendly shackets.

To save you time, we've rounded up all the chic, elevated staples that we spotted on the M&S website this week to see you through spring and all the way into summer too. Keep scrolling to see what we found. And Marks and Spencer? We're behind you all the way.
