I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again – Marks and Spencer has really nailed spring fashion this season.

With one next door to Metro HQ, I can’t help myself looking, wanting, and touching everything in sight – and I’m not alone.

My colleagues have also spent a small fortune in there recently – whether it be on a new spring wardrobe, little pieces to update what we currently have going on, or items for a pending holiday.

It’s all we can talk about too.

From must-have trench coats to keep the chill at bay, cropped jackets that have sold-out multiple times, viral utility trousers and Palazoo jeans, everyday stripe shirts, and some simply, stunning accessories – M&S is the high street hero RN, and it really has it all.

And don’t get me started on the homeware…

Now I’ve been a fan of M&S fashion for years. Thanks to the high-quality clothing, generously varied sizing (they stock sizes 6-22, plus short, regular, and long leg lengths), affordable prices – and of course the trusty underwear.

But for me this year? I’m willing to go into the red for everything M&S. What? It is the colour of the season after all.

Fans of the Instagram account have thrown their two-cents in too. One follower called @k.n.i.g.h.t.d said: ‘I have to say M&S is bringing the heat since the new head of womenswear joined the brand! Well done M&S!’

Another follower called @amiizmus followed suit, and said: ‘This new collection is’ followed with four black hearts.

@Hungrybecky also added: ‘Omg I love it all. M&S rocking Spring fashion’.

Below I’ve picked out the items I think everyone needs to know about, potentially buy and add into their wardrobe repertoire – but you can shop everything else right here.

Linen Blend Longline Trench Coat

Linen Blend Longline Trench Coat

Ugh. Everyone that knows me, knows how obsessed I am with trench coats – and this is no exception.

Made from a fluid linen-blend fabric, it’s perfect for those in-between weather days.

Coming in a regular fit, it has a revere collar, and a tie belt at the waist.

What I also love is the double-breasted buttons, and authentic wash – really giving that traditional look.

Complete with adjustable cuffs, a vent at the hem and two handy slip pockets – it’s a big thumbs up from me.

If they had this in my size, I’d buy it in a heart-beat.

Tap into the cropped blazer trend with this modern linen-blend style.

Faux flap pockets enhance the visual appeal of this piece – plus it’s complete with a smooth lining, for a more comfortable feel.

If this isn’t the ultimate spring look, then I don’t want it.

Faux Leather Cross Body Bag

Sorry but HOW is this bag under £40? It’s far too gorgeous, and could be designer!

Detailed with metallic hardware, this cross-body bag adds an elegant finishing touch, to your day-to-night looks.

I’m obsessed with the faux leather design, and adjustable, detachable long strap – giving you multiple styling options.

It’s also fully lined, with internal zip and slip pockets – so you can carry all your daily essentials with ease.

Hermes dooooooop! These are so gorgeous, I actually just purchased them in two colours – waiting for my size to come back in stock for the third.

These understated mules are an elegant choice for just about any occasion – work, holiday, weekends away, the local M&S Food…

Made with a slip-on style in a wide fit, I’m a big fan of the mid-height block heel – for comfortable wear.
