It's fair to say that many of us have a soft spot for good old Marks and Spencer. Renowned for its extensive lingerie selection, affordable cashmere and irresistible, pig-themed sweets, the high-street retailer was likely one of the more recognisable retailers on your local high street wherever you grew up. And it's suddenly become a reliable place to stock up on autumn/winter 2018 staples. While the chain has reported slumps in profits and is due to close over 30 stores nationwide, it has gained customers in womenswear, and it's not hard to see why.
Style Notes: The camel blazer will literally go with anything you own. So yes, naturally it goes with classic black leather trews and a roll neck and looks instantly stylish from all angles.
Pop into even a tiny store and chances are you might be greeted with a fabulous jumper, or if you’re lucky, their leather staple skirts that always sell out. The thing with M&S shopping is that they roll out It buy after It buy and they always fly off the virtual and real life rails, so you have to make the purchase as soon as you spot a winner. Items do often come back in stock, so it’s wise to check back and follow the PR team on Instagram for launch dates.
