There’s always a place for a touch of tailoring.

Versatile staples like this are what M&S does best.

Arket nails the denim trends every season, and this pair is no exception.

Style Notes: If you’re a fan of the relaxed trend but want to give your shape a little definition, opt for a belted blazer and sleek heeled boots.

A true classic. I just love the contrast between the exaggerated shoulders and the nipped-in waist.

Frame jeans are pleasingly premium, and the kind of denim that will last a lifetime.

The perfect not-too-high heel.

Style Notes: Oversized blazers provide a boxier shape; perfect for creating an Annie Hall-style outfit. Adding white instead of blue denim makes the look feel fresher and more suitable for a brighter day. 

This has a vintage menswear feel that I love.

These can be styled for every season

Dip your toes into the kitten heel trend with this sophisticated take.

Take your denim collection from boring to stylish with this form-fitting pair.

A fresh take on the ballet pump trend.

This would work equally well for formal and casual outfits.

Reach for this tee whatever the season.

The perfect blue jeans.

Style Notes: Sometimes it’s best to keep it classic, and it doesn’t get more classic than a beige blazer paired with blue jeans. Simple.

A neutral blazer is a wardrobe lifesaver.

Baggy jeans are a key trend this year.

New Balance trainers always sell out fast—shop them while you can.

Style Notes: A brown wool blazer is a wardrobe mainstay. Take it from the office to drinks with a few styling switches, then wear it on the weekend with jeans and sneakers like Anouk Yve.

This blazer is so striking and well worth the investment.

See? Baggy jeans are the ones to own in 2024.

Celebrities are obsessed with these kicks.

Style Notes: Switch out your usual black blazer for a light iteration when you fancy a seasonal update that won’t take you out of your comfort zone.

Marks & Spencer’s masterful tailoring is some of the best on the high-street.

The ultimate foundational basic.

This is bringing some really ballet nostalgia.

Style Notes: Drawn to monochrome styling? A crop top prevents this black-on-black look from feeling too heavy.

This cornerstone piece will serve you for years to come.

The wide straps make this top extra flattering.

This wash feels dressier than classic blue—add heels and red lipstick when you hit the town.

Style Notes: There’s a lot going on with this look, and we can’t get enough of it. Bonus points for the exposed bodysuit—that’s ticking a major 2024 trend box.

Seriously elegant.

The perfect base to let the rest of your outfit shine.

An everyday jean you can rely on. 

Style Notes: Double-breasted blazers always feel incredibly classy—just like loafers, so why not style them together?

This one’s roomy enough to layer knitwear underneath.

Yes, please.
