M&S has gone through something of a fashion revolution over the last couple of years. While the high street in general has suffered hugely due to the Covid-19 pandemic, M&S seem to have pivoted their fashion offering with ease. While they kick started this transformation with collaborations with the likes of Holly Willoughby, the high street favourite now offers a steady stream of other brands alongside own label, making shopping at marksandspencer.com a multi brand experience.

From the likes of Nobody’s Child to Phase Eight, Jaeger and Hobbs, to name just a few, M&S is carving out a space for itself as a destination fashion hub for those who have moved on from their fast fashion days. Couple this with their collaborative efforts with the likes of Ghost and you have a recipe for a new and forward looking high street model that ensures customers have great options, both in terms of style and price point.
The latest M&S x Ghost collection is testament to this reinvention. Favoured by the likes Kate Middleton, Millie Mackintosh, Holly Willoughby and Carrie Johnson, Ghost’s reputation as a British fashion house, pairs perfectly with Marks and Spencer’s rep as one of the UK’s most beloved high street names. Famed for their silky and pretty biased cut dresses, this partnership is one of our favourites.
While a Ghost dress may set you back over £120, the Mark and Spencer dresses come in below £80. With our love of day dresses, pretty tea dresses and floral midaxi frocks still going strong for A/W ’21, there has never been a better time to invest in this look.
Chic and sophisticated, the dresses are easy to wear from day to evening, with a simple swap of boots for heels/smart flats and a speedy accessory change, you can go from office to occasion in one very quick twirl. The easy shapes will suit a host of silhouettes and the classic cuts and bloom prints will also mean that these pieces are unlikely to date season to season.
Other stand out styles in the collection include the amazing forest green jumpsuit, certainly one for wedding guest attire or heading out out in the coming months, it has a lovely Seventies feel to it and that wide leg is very chic for the season ahead.
The collection also has an iteration of the humble slip skirt. With the Nineties aesthetic still popular as we head into winter, the slip skirt is a wardrobe staple item that you can wear time and time again, all year through. For winter pair a silky slip skirt with a chunky knit for a really tactile mash up and carry into spring with lighter gauze knits, t-shirts and leather jackets.
This collection is stylish, sophisticated and classic, so whatever you buy, you can hang onto and rewear again and again.
The collection is out now and available up to size 20.
