Throughout 2019, we’ve fallen head over heels for dozens of Holly Willoughby’s outfits, but her picks from Marks & Spencer have been amongst our absolute favourites.
A strong contender for the top spot was the yellow jacquard spotty midi she debuted on Instagram at the end of August. Not only was the dress super flattering and a gorgeous golden huge, it was the perfect pick for the transitional season.
According to M&S, Holly made the dress look so good that it quickly became a bestseller amongst its customers – and now the store has reinvented it for the winter months in a rich claret red with the same dotty pattern.
M&S’ head of content Rachel Sullivan showed off the piece on the brand’s Instagram account, cleverly layering it with a contrasting white polo neck and cinching the waist in with a leather belt for an even more exaggerated vintage silhouette.
‘Such a lovely colour,’ wrote one follower, while another agreed: ‘Loving these posts the outfits look amazing.’
With its slight billowing sleeve, mid-calf length and gathered neckline, the outfit hits several of this season’s biggest trends in one fell swoop.
If, like Holly and Rachel, you want to add it to your collection, it’s on the Marks & Spencer website in sizes 6-18.
One reviewer said theirs had earned them five compliments on its first outing, so it could well be worth the investment!
