It's been a tough old week for high street matriarch Marks & Spencer, with every day seeing another gloomy headline that speaks of lay-offs and store closures. Yet, behind the media coverage, the store is continuing to do what it does best: Deliver timeless, well-executed staples for the shopping public. Fashion-wise, August is always a tricky time of year, with temperatures remaining balmy, but the cool winds of autumn not far off. Anything we invest in now has to be versatile and adaptable for whatever the British weather throws at us.
M&S has the solution—its online store is packed-full of trans-seasonal 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, straight leg jeans, white shirts and layerable shackets. Wear now with velcro sandals and sunnies, then swap in chunky boots and cashmere knits come October.
To save you time, I've rounded-up the chic elevated staples that I've spotted on the website this week, scroll down to see what I found. You can do it, Marks and Sparks, we're behind you all the way.
