Andrea McLean just made us all want this Marks & Spencer suit

Dresses are a signature of Andrea McLean’s. The Loose Women presenter is beloved for her colourful collection which she regularly wears and shares both on our screens and on Instagram.

So, when we saw her in a perfectly tailored suit at the Mind Media Awards we had to share it with you as firstly, it’s from Marks & Spencer’s and secondly, she looks amazing in it.


Opting for a slightly more androgynous look than usual in a navy and white windowpane checked blazer and matching trousers, Andrea’s look offers up major inspiration for those loyal dress wearers amongst us.

Tailored for a flattering slim-fit the set is available to shop together as a twinset and individually from Marks & Spencer’s M&S Collection, there’s even a matching dress option available if you’re not entirely sold on the trousers – unsurprisingly Andrea’s already a firm fan of this beautifully draped midi style, helpfully sharing two styling options with her followers…

Ideal for the impending party season the set (either the dress or trouser option) provide a chic offering for day-to-night dressing whether you’re heading from your desk-to-dinner or the office Christmas party.

We love how Andrea’s styled her suit, keeping the clean white checks in focus by pairing with a tonal rollneck and ankle boots for a sleek, smart silhouette.

The set would look equally as good for brunch paired with a clean white tee and trainers. A great investment you’ll be reaching for each component season after season – think the checked blazer and light wash jeans in summer or, the checked trousers and a chunky jumper when the weather cools.
