It’s September, which means it’s officially back-to-school season, and not just for kids. Each year, as the temperature starts to drop and the nights approach, it still feels like a reset even for adults.
But instead of new pencil cases and school shirts, it’s comfortable cashmere and new season clothing.
And where else to find your essential autumn / winter wardrobe other than one of Britain’s oldest high street department stores, Marks and Spencer?
Not only is Marks and Spencer (M&S) great for basics and knitwear (plus, some of the most comfortable undergarments this team has ever tried), it’s also one of the top secret spaces for key trend pieces, all at M&S prices (and quality).
For the prominent shades that will accompany you on darker days, look no further than this soft cobalt blue sweater and this lilac belted tailored coat. But hurry, the candy-colored coat is already selling fast, with fans praising its “perfect shade of lilac” and “great value for money”.
Another fall staple to see you this season (and many more) comes in the form of faux leather straight leg pants. Wear it with a T-shirt and trainers when the weather is still in double digits and change into chunky knits and heeled boots when the temperature drops.
Elsewhere, midi dresses never seem to go out of style – who could argue with a midi shirt dress in an updated autumn floral for under £ 30? – and knitted vests are making a comeback (believe me).
From leggings to leather pants, through shirt dresses and knit vests, keep scrolling for the best fall fashion pieces from M&S to accompany you through the season (and beyond).
