Marks and Spencer know how to do party wear. Expect colourful sequins, animal prints and velvet; just what we need to dress up and feel our best, even when it’s freezing outside.
October is almost gone which means Halloween is just around the corner, BST is over in a couple of days and… is time to get ready and start planning outfits for all those Christmas parties before it’s too late – or before everything sells out.
This is why we’ve chosen our favourite pieces from Marks and Spencer before they fly off the shelves. Although a few pieces from our edit aren’t yet available in Marks and Spencer stores (they will be shortly in the next few weeks) we thought it would be great to give you a sneak peak on what’s yet to come.
Sequins + velvet is a combo that can’t go wrong. This gorgeous burgundy top will definitely make a statement. It can be worn as a jacket over a velvet plain top or by itself. Dress it down with dark denim trousers or up with black midi skirt.
Still in the sequin mood we love the striped midi skirt in rose gold and red. It’s quite an elegant piece that can look super cool with trainers and a knit jumper as styled below.
If that’s just too casual for you pair it with matching sequin top and pumps to a chic evening wear look.
Another sequin piece we’re obsessed with is this midi two-tone skirt in blue and pink. The perfect piece if you’re tired of reds, greens and blacks. Wear it with a shimmery navy roll neck jumper to keep warm, complement it with fab earrings and you’re ready to go.
This season’s print couldn’t be left out. Reptile prints are all over fashion from head to toe. Usually in neutral tones as black, grey and cream, M&S adds a twist with this lovely royal blue snakeprint dress. This flattering and comfy style easily takes you from day to night.
Feel that a full animal print outfit is too much for you? Not to worry, you can opt for a blouse and jazz up your denim.
These are the fashion team’s top picks. We’ve made our bets and chosen our favourite ones, don’t wait too long before you bag yours or it might be too little too late, as they’ll definitely sell out shortly.
