Ultra-feminine style

“This blouse and skirt feature similar prints but at different scales, which adds a point of interest. I live in skirts with sneakers and this outfit is ideal for a nice day out. I would add a pale-wash denim jacket to complete the look.” @marksandspencer_nicola

Embroidery is a key detail to look out for, as is the Twenties-inspired box fit of this maxi dress. It’s surprisingly easy to wear. I’d team it with shell jewellery and colour-pop mules for a look that would work just as well on vacation as it would in the city.” @marksandspencer_dominique

Nineties slip dresses

Slip dresses are a big trend for summer and this satin jacquard fabric is really soft and hangs well. The shape is flattering and accentuates the waist. The bright colour and not-too-short length makes it really versatile: I would add a waist belt to switch up the look.” @marksandspencer_jess

“The cowl neckline works really well over a T-shirt and would look great paired with sneakers for a festival. Likewise, it could easily be dressed up with a chunky gold necklace, heels and a blazer for evening.” @marksandspencer_nicola

Modern midis

“This is a new trend for me but I’m definitely a fan. The skirt has a lot of interesting detailing and the waistband looks like a belt, which means one less accessory to think about when getting dressed in the morning. You could totally wear this skirt to a wedding paired with a camisole, and the denim shirt would also work well with contrasting jeans and heels.” @marksandspencer_sam

Cool utility

“Linen is big news, making it ideal for a lightweight and comfy holiday look. The shorts look great over a swimsuit for the beach. I would get more mileage out of this top by teaming it with jeans and a leather jacket. I love a simple gold necklace – my grandma used to wear lots of gold jewellery and I take after her. I have also gone for a bright orange nail varnish which contrasts well against the neutrals.” @marksandspencer_jess
