SS17 is going to be a very pretty season if Marks & Spencer have anything to do with it...

We might be smack bang in the middle of party season but that hasn’t stopped us getting excited for next season. We blame Marks & Spencer because, after seeing their brand new drop, we’re already keen for spring.

Next season M&S is packed with style hits

The brand’s AW16 collection was packed full of catwalk-alike frocks, must-have coats and the nicest accessories which made us *very* excited for what was to come for Spring/Summer’17. Once again, M&S have delivered on both quality and style. The spring drop looks even more wearable than winter’s, which means we want every single piece.

m&s trainers, next season

The overall feel of the SS17 collection is vibrantly updated feminine. Ladylike midi skirts made from the floatiest tulle have been teamed with embroidered denim jackets. Smock frocks get an refresh for summer thanks to brand new pink Broderie Anglaise. Even utilitarian khaki gets the girly treatment. A soon-to-be-staple wrap dress is trimmed with pretty flirty frills making it an ideal day-to-night wonder.

Gingham, frills, wraps and the nicest shoes

Frills and wrap details feature heavily in the new range. One of our fave pieces is the yellow printed wrap shirt from the Havana-themed collection. The shape will easily cinch in the waist and looks especially great worn with either tailored trousers or jeans for the weekend.

Gingham is a huge print for SS17 and M&S have used it to create a fun mid-length skirt with a peplum and asymmetric frill. We can see this prairie-like skirt being a hit on any summer holiday next year.

It’s not just the clothing that gets our thumbs up; M&S have also nailed their extras. Embroidered trainers, shiny loafers and kitten-heeled points all give the high street brand major punch in the shoe game next season.
