Oh M&S, you know how to get our attention. This week, the brand revealed more of its party-ready pieces and I’m hooked. The thing that really cinched it for me was the fluffy clutch bag that comes in four different colours, and I know will look so good with every party I’ve got coming up over the festive season. But before I share with you my edit of the pieces I love (and I know you will too), here’s a quick note about party dressing in 2019. Right now, we all want items of clothing and accessories that will last us. We don’t want to spend our money on something that will only survive a couple of outings. This isn’t just because we’re all being careful with our money but we’re also concerned about the environment and want to be more sustainable, so this edit has taken this all into account.
From a velvet suit that will look just as great with strappy heels for your work Christmas party as it will with sneakers for the office, to a classic black jumpsuit that I guarantee you’ll wear so many times over the coming year (it’s also a great wedding guest outfit option). Other items that caught my eye include a chain necklace that looks vintage, a pink midi dress and a black slip dress that you know you’ll wear right through to next summer. Ready to see which pieces I’ve rated from this incredible M&S party drop? Keep scrolling…
