There’s just something about Marks Spencer that’s hard to beat. The high street is filled with hundreds of brands, clamouring for our attention and hard-earned cash; it can all get rather overwhelming knowing where it’s worth actually shopping.
And do you rather spend your money on trends, or focus on building a capsule wardrobe? This is where M&S comes in. Every. Single. Time. Whether you’re in the market for a new cardigan or looking to treat yourself to some workout clothes, M&S deliver on both trends and actual, long-lasting quality, time and time again.
We’re nearing the end of November (how did that happen?) which means Black Friday is around the corner. Since current lockdown restrictions will still be in place by the time one of the biggest shopping days for retailers arrives, all our sale buys will be snapped up from the comfort of our couches.
Infinitely better than queuing in the cold and fighting over the last in our size, tbh. But, if you’re really savvy, you’ll have realised that some of our favourite retailers have already started with some exciting mark-downs – and here’s one worth taking advantage of STAT. M&S has just launched 30% off of all boots – so (virtually) run, don’t walk.
So although we might be at home for the next few weeks, we highly suggest investing now in a pair of M&S boots now – and with 30% off, it would almost be rude not to. We’ve looked through all the pairs on offer and although there are quite a few we’d like to *add to bag*, Glamour’s pick for our favourite boot in the M&S sale is their chunky Chelsea boot.
Shoe trends come and go but Chelsea boots are a wardrobe staple that you will pull on winter after winter. We do, however, love the subtle nod to the chunky tread trend – championed by designers like Bottega Venetta and The Row for AW20 – and the slightly longer length on these boots. The understated acknowledgement to these current trends, still mean these boots are totally Instagram worthy, but equally, you won’t feel *over* them come next winter.
Plus we love that they’re made from actual leather – a rarity with high street boots, never mind boots under £50. Need one more reason to buy them before they sell out? Winter walks look set to stay as we all try to social distance through the pandemic and we guarantee, you’ll struggle to find a more comfortable, and stylish boot to get your step count up in.
It was, however, pretty difficult to chose just one pair of boots from the M&S sale. So we’ve rounded up the best of the rest below. Whether you’re looking for on-trend knee-high boot, a classic hiking boot or a fashion-forward square toe ankle style, you won’t be disappointed.
