We're experienced enough in the world of M&S shopping to know by now that a quality high-street dress from the retailer waits for no man. Hence, why we're giving you an early start on the latest piece to garner attention. We've only just recovered from the surprise restocking of the British stalwart's constellation-print dress (yes, there's been another batch delivered, and all the sizes are available, people), but earlier this week at the M&S spring 2018 press day in London, another midi frock stood out: a deep-red velvet number with frilled, smocked sleeves and a ruched (super-flattering and joyfully adjustable) waist.
It was handpicked by the always-cool Laura Jackson to wear for the event, but she wasn't the only one with eyes on the prize, either. Snapped alongside a member of the M&S press team, it was clear to see the favourite item in the room—the £59 dress is available online in sizes eight to 22, but we wouldn't expect it to hang around for long. A party power piece for all girls—whether you wear yours simply à la Jackson or jazz it up with metallic accessories and a gigantic pair of earrings.
