It's hard to imagine what the Great British high street would be like without Marks & Spencer; the brand many of us have come to rely upon for its elite lingerie and Percy Pigs. As impressive as its underwear and food departments may be, the category I believe M&S nails like no other is never-date fashion. I consider myself to be something of a Marks & Spencer shopping expert; from my formative years as an assistant being asked to run to the nearest store to stock up on tights and vests for styling kits, to attending store appointments to pull products for my own shoots, I know the blueprint of just about every London M&S store like the back of my hand. Needless to say, I am very familiar with what makes a great Marks & Spencer fashion find, which certainly comes in handy here at Who What Wear.
