27 Marks and Spencer Basics That Will Carry You Through Autumn

Marks And Spencer Trans-seasonal Shopping Edit: @y.a.t.r.i wears a black linen shirt and trousers



It's been a tough old year for the Great British high-street, with every week seeing another gloomy headline that speaks of lay-offs and store closures. Yet, behind the media coverage, M&S (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.

Fashion-wise, September is always a tricky time of year, with temperatures becoming somewhat inconsistent, but it's safe to say things are turning chiller by the day. Anything we invest in now has to be versatile and adaptable for whatever the autumnal weather throws at us. M&S has the solution—its online store is packed-full of seasonally-appropriate 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 layerable shackets.

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.
