M&Co – A fabulous Festive Offering

I love that time of year when the shops suddenly become all sparkly and glittery, and we start to think about the real party season. Yes, Christmas is on its way, and as much as we are thinking about presents, we are also turning our minds towards our wardrobes.  Because Christmas is the one time of the year it is actually encouraged to be as bright and sparkling as a Christmas tree, and the seasonal offerings from our favourite stores echo this fact.

For a spot of Sunday shopping this week, I’m turning my attention to M&Co. They have started to promote their party shop and it is chocked full of beautiful pieces that will enhance your wardrobe. With some great petite pieces in store at the moment, as well as the mainline range, M&Co are giving you the opportunity to shine, but to also be true to your signature style. If you love your glamorous dresses, they have Temperley inspired embroidery, and full skirted prom dress styles to embrace that inner Grace Kelly. But there are also beautiful tops that could dress up your jeans if you prefer your style more low key, and glittery shrugs that could give you a sparkly daytime look.

Here are some of my key picks… and maybe a bit of inspiration.

M&Co flash Sale with style inspiration from Kate Moss, Alexa Chung, Millie Mackintosh and Lucy Kite

There is nothing I like better than a flash sale, the sort of surprise events where you really can make some amazing savings, but have to be quick as they only last for a very short time. A really amazing flash sale at the moment is the M&Co event, which is full of really lovely items that range from petites to plus-size, and everything else in between.

You can get lots of inspiration for what to buy from the flash sale by taking a look at some of the stylish celebs I’ve featured below.

Lucy Kite style

TV presenter Lucy Kite looked fantastic in this 1960s style shift dress from design duo Philip Armstrong, but you can get a similar gorgeous look for much less from M&Co with the smudge print embellished dress, currently in the flash sale for £39.50.

Great Gatsby style tops

The Great Gatsby has been one of the style hits of the year so far, showing that embellishment, beading and embroidery are not just left to the confines of the party season. M&Co has some gorgeous Gatsby style beaded tops that will be perfect dressed up or down this summer.

Mary Katrantzou style

Mary Katrantzou’s vibrant prints are a celebrity favourite, being worn by the likes of Solange Knowles and Alexa Chung. The scarf print dress combines a variety of mismatched prints that call Mary’s designs to mind, and also have a touch of vintage Versace about them too.

Dannii Minogue bodycon style

Bodycon is still a huge look, and monochrome never goes out of style, so it is a no brainer that a black and white bodycon dress should be a part of your wardrobe, whatever the season. Dannii Minogue shows that this is a great style for evening wear, and this M&Co contrast bodycon dress would also be a very smart work look.

Contrast bodycon dress £34.50 click to visit M&Co

Kate Moss animal print jacket

Kate Moss knows the importance of having an animal print jacket or blazer in your wardrobe. To put it quite simply, it goes with absolutely everything, being a totally versatile piece well worth investing in. I love this black and white version from M&Co, a great buy for less than £20.

Millie Mackintosh style leather jacket

Made in Chelsea’s style queen Millie Mackintosh has shown an amazing ability to get it just right come festival season, where she is often in support of rapper fiancee Professor Green. Millie oftens sports her biker style leather jacket. but if your budget doesn’t stretch to leather, you can get a similar look with the faux leather biker jacket – a bargain at less than £30.
