We asked four M&S influencers, aka The Insiders, to style British TV star Holly Willoughby’s sunshine-ready new favourites


“A jumpsuit is the perfect option for summer in the city. I’d wear it to festivals, barbecues and beyond. This one is really soft and breathable thanks to the sustainably sourced cotton blend. I have chosen a size up for a more relaxed fit and have paired the jumpsuit with sporty sandals for an on-trend casual look. I would dress it up by adding Nineties-inspired ‘barely there’ strappy sandals, a clutch and my go-to gold hoops which come in a great-value set.”

“This linen utility shirt is ideal for summer workwear teamed with tailored shorts and heels, or dressed down with casual sandals for soaking up sunshine in the park. Pure linen is lightweight and relaxed, making it my go-to option on warm days or when I’m packing for a sunny getaway. I’ll be styling this shirt many ways on my upcoming holiday to Turkey: open over swimwear, knotted at the waist with skirts and, of course, tucked into a great pair of shorts.”

“This pretty blouse features a woodblock-style paisley print and delicate real shell buttons. The light and airy cotton fabric makes it perfect for summer, tucked into white or cream denim. One of the best things about being an M&S Insider is getting to try new things and step outside of my comfort zone when it comes to my style, so I’ll try dressing this blouse up with the button-down denim mini skirt, or even the linen shorts.”

“I love a classic shirt dress – they’re so easy to wear and the fit is super flattering. This one features a striking print in a monochrome palette, so it’s eye-catching but not OTT. I’ll be teaming it with sandals for summer, ankle boots (such as an on-trend tan Western pair) for autumn and knee-high boots and tights for winter. It’s a year-round winner.”
