PRETTY AND FEMININE
A key look at spring/summer 2014 catwalk shows was the loveliest return to soft, feminine silhouettes and colours. Fabrics have a light-as-air quality, shapes are fluid and flattering, while a sun-bleached colour palette of blush, aqua, white and yellow sums up the look.
The best bit? At M&S we're ready to go with those perfect pieces that you can layer up now for the colder months, but will work perfectly as part of next year's spring refresh.
M&S Collection Floral Lace Chiffon Tea Dress £49.50
M&S Collection Pure Cashmere Jumper £129
An embellished, blush knit is perfectly cosy now and for spring will look pretty with a crisp white shirt.
We're already in a nautical mood for this autumn with stripes and shades of blue, which look great as long-sleeved tops, simple T-shirt dresses or pencil skirts, which can be layered with knits and tights for the cooler months, but will look just right come the new year.
The key, if you're going for pattern, is to keep shapes clean and simple. Team with jeans for a relaxed weekend or dress up a striped skirt with a nipped-in tailored jacket for work.
Autograph Birdseye & Striped Jumper with Wool £39.50
Designers have plunged into the deep blue sea for spring with the most saturated tones of turquoise, emerald and ink. As the nights draw in for autumn and winter, the quickest way to lift your look is with a jolt of colour: a structured dress teamed with a tailored jacket and boots or just an accent with a twisted bracelet worn with a cream blouse or a standout clutch for evening.
Autograph V-Neck Panelled Shift Dress £59
Per Una Pointelle Knitted Top with Necklace £39.50
A bright cotton top works now under a loose knit with jeans, but will fit the spring trend too.
From 19 – 22 September, Somerset House played host to Vodafone London Fashion Weekend, an exclusive fashion and designer shopping experience.
Bringing this season's key trends to life, we put together a special catwalk show featuring all of your favourite M&S brands.
