Spring at Marks and Spencer – white, pastel and tailored culottes
M&S’s new-season offering is a vision in tonal whites, with a few notable exceptions
You read that right, tailored culottes – and though the thought of them may strike fear in your fashion-loving hearts (meet your sister), there is something to be said for a spring/summer season that, at least through Marks & Spencer‘s lens, seems geared towards loose, mannish tailoring rather than veering down the micro-mini, bodycon route.
Spring Fashion 2014
White is most definitely the colour (or absence thereof) of the season ahead – we’re seeing it crop up both in clothing and in accessories, and even in footwear, where it’s previously been tarnished by Essex-girl connotations and been confined mostly to runners and nursing shoes (you know the ones).

Of course, it’s not just white on white (which was big for last season, so congratulations if you invested, your spring/summer wardrobe is practically ready already) – for spring we’re mixing white in with off-whites: lemony yellow, soft blush tones, peachy pinks and hints of caramel and beige, but it’s predominantly a neutral, cool, white-themed palette. Of course, there’s always one exception.
Style and Fashion for 2014
This navy floral culotte-panted jumpsuit might be my favourite thing to come out of Marks & Spencer since those five-pocket jeggings (which, incidentally, have lost the run of themselves entirely and are now a thin cotton blend, rather than the nice denim they started out as). You can expect a twitpic of me in this very jumpsuit once it hits stores (although don’t be expecting it to look good).
