I Just Tried On the Latest M&S Denim—These 7 Pieces Wowed Me


Almost by definition, it’s a fundamental condition in fashion that things tend to come and go. And, as much as we try to fight the ‘fad’ culture at Who What Wear, it’s a given that trends have their moment. There are however some staples that seem to stand the test of time, that never seem to fade away—cashmere or a really good wool coat, for example, there’s just no arguing their position in a capsule wardrobe. There’s another item on this list too: Denim. Imagine a world without it? It’s hard, isn’t it, because it’s so firmly ingrained in our culture. Smart, casual, smart-casual—there are multiple iterations and levels of appropriateness. So when one of our most-loved brands, Marks & Spencer, told us they were unveiling a whole new denim campaign, you can imagine our excitement. 

The thing that’s so great about M&S Denim is that it’s so much more than jeans. Trench coats, tailoring, skirts and more, that allow for not only double denim, but yes! You guessed it—triple denim to come into play. I’m the first to admit that I’m not the biggest denim wearer, of course like most people I have several pairs of jeans in my arsenal, but I find it difficult to style on my shorter, hourglass frame. Which is why this collection really attracted me, because it isn’t your typical denim silhouettes at all, meaning anyone, and really everyone can get on board with pieces from it. 


For the office worker who likes to feel put-together and professional, there’s a suit. Lovers of vintage will appreciate the denim trench and midi skirt, which to me felt distinctly reminiscent of the seventies, but with a modern twist. And those who enjoy a more casual denim look, wide-leg jeans and a denim shirt worn together bring the idea up to date. Adding to this, the jeans come in several different cuts, M&S’s signature Sienna straight-leg, which is a best-seller, as well as some new silhouettes—a cargo style, a wide-leg fit and a carrot cut have been added in different wash choices, perfect for those who have a favourite that they’re most confident in. As always with M&S, sizing runs from a 6-24, with 3 different leg lengths (petite, regular, long), so this range also gets our seal of approval when it comes to inclusivity.
