Marks & Spencer seriously upped the style game with the launch of their premium Best Of British collection last year, and the summer drop is more covetable than ever. Landing in stores and online now, it’s packed with the kind of statement but simple designs, slick tailoring and plush fabrics that made the first range a fully fledged high-street hit.
Interpreting the floral trend in a totally cool way – think blooms on structured dresses and separates instead of the usual ultra-girlie offerings – there are also tailored knee-length city shorts and a whole load of office-to-bar appropriate tops. We’re smitten with the cornflower blue tee – with a peplum and Peter Pan collar in one piece, what’s not to love? Oh, and don’t forget the gorgeously glossy dove grey coat if you’re up for investing in autumn early. Some prices are a little higher than ususal for Marks & Sparks, but are justified by the craftsmanship and quality – everything is sourced and made in the UK, hence the name of the collection.
Invest now, wear for years.
