M&Sandthensome’s Top Picks from M&S’s Spring / Summer 2013 collection
As you can tell by my name, I am a big M&S fan but I had been despairing over the past few years in HK. The reason? I was not getting my M&S fix. Yes we have M&S stores in HK but the collection was not as vast as that of the UK stores. Gazing wistfully at all the fashionable dresses and outfits available online and in the UK, I prayed to the M&S gods…
My prayers were answered. M&S HK fashion buyers have really stepped up their game and brought over to HK some of the more fashionable pieces that are on offer from M&S UK. Split into 3 groups (Doll House, Mono Pop and Print Fusion), here are some of my picks:
Channelling a bit of Uma during her Kill Bill days, this biker style jacket hits the monochrome trend which has been all over the catwalks. However, it is made from a silky material thereby making it more formal. Sling it over your shoulders for warmer days or wear it as a jacket at the office over sleek black trousers and top or a black sheath dress. Take it from me, this jacket is AMAZING!
My second jacket choice is the colourful tuxedo style jacket. Add colour to your basic black outfit for work or wear it with jeans for an evening casual look. Super versatile and the colour just makes you think of the tropics and a nice cocktail…
The Maxi Dress
Once again hitting the monochrome trend, this striped maxi is gorgeous but it takes a brave woman to wear horizontal stripes. However, I would be willing to try it on as it is beautiful and such a high quality piece that you could dress up with heels and accessories or go totally casual with a pair of flats.
Another colourful pick, this embroidered maxi dress is extremely flattering as it has a solid black bottom with the detail on the top. Hitting the slightly tribal/ethnic trend, this is a great dress to take with you to some exotic location or to wear on the weekend for lunch with the girls in Stanley.
So thank you M&S for giving me more opportunity to spend more cash with you.
