And it seems that the high street stalwart has another fashion hit on its hands with the release of this floral jumpsuit.
M&S sure knows how to design a sartorial hit. It all started with that Alexa Chung-approved skirt, followed by the coveted constellation dress and much talked-about £19.50 jeans.
The brand took to Instagram to share a snap of the £59 red and blue floral jumpsuit and it quickly sent fashion fans into a frenzy.
Captioning the snap, the brand wrote: “Jump into the new season with one of our most in-demand jumpsuits (as seen on the @thefrugality ). With its red and blue floral design and long sleeves it is perfect for spring, while its wide leg and button down front makes it super flattering.”
Thousands of women quickly took to the comments section to express their interest, while other proud owners revealed how flattering the garment was. Plenty of women who already own the jumpsuit told fellow fashionistas how many compliments they’d received on wearing it.
The jumpsuit is currently only available online and size 12 has already sold out after frenzied shoppers rushed to snap it up.
It’s little surprise that the piece has become such a sartorial success; shopping platform LIKEtoKNOW.it – used by some of the world’s most successful influencers – reported a 945% increase in clicks to jumpsuits since this time last year so it seems like spring/summer 2019 may well be the season of the jumpsuit.
Having debuted during the war, Elsa Schiaparelli put the jumpsuit onto the fashion map in the early ’30s – even creating air-raid suits complete with matching gas mask.
Fast-forward to the 60s, when the likes of Cher, Abba and Elvis adopted the look as their signature style before it went on to became an everyday staple in the early ’00s.
For next season, Dries Van Noten, Emilia Wickstead and Stella McCartney debuted some great options, with the high street primed and ready to showcase their affordable alternatives – and the M&S offering just went straight to the top of our wish-list.
