I Just Assembled 4 Expensive-Looking Summer Outfits Entirely From M&S

It's no secret that we're fans of Marks & Spencer here at Who What Wear UK. Over recent years, the brand has stepped up, turning out fashion-forward staples that remain timeless season after season. I've witnessed the evolution of many brands through the years but M&S' have been amongst the most impressive. Synonymous with the UK, it's a beloved brand with an exquisite food haul worth writing home about (now, I'm digressing) and luckily for lovers of fashion, M&S' clothing is equally on par.

M&S' evolution began with the much-coveted flip-flop-flatform a few years prior, and to date, the brand has collaborated with some of the most fashionable names on the internet. It's safe to say that M&S is rightfully gaining esteem for creating affordable, inclusive wardrobe basics and iterations of designer classics (like so). I scoured M&S to find some of the website's finest and curated four head-to-toe looks for the summer. Continue reading for some classic outfits from our high street favourite.
