Christmas party dressing is one of the trickiest style challenges of the year. Whether it’s a casual outing or a formal affair, finding the perfect outfit – something that’s comfortable enough to wear all night, but stylish enough to impress your friends and colleagues – is no mean feat.
But this year, it’s M&S to the rescue, with the arrival of one of the coolest, quirkiest accessories we’ve seen so far, that’s ideal for adding a little extra pizazz to almost any ensemble.
Marks & Spencer debuted its Mongolian Clutch Bag on Instagram earlier this week, to the applause of thousands of followers who instantly fell in love with its fun, fluffy design.
‘Oh how gorgeous. Great with a little black dress ?’ said one customer, followed by one who wrote: ‘These look amazing! Love the colours.’
Another admitted to being ‘kind of obsessed’ with the piece, while several others tagged friends and told them to add them to their wardrobes immediately. In fact, the post quickly racked up thousands of likes and hundreds of comments – the type of attention that’s usually a precursor to plenty of sales.
There are actually four colourways in the fluffy clutch family: the blush and hot pink shown on Insta, plus a vibrant red and contrastingly cool jade, all with the same gold chain handle and clasp.
And if you’re concerned about the possibility of wearing fur, fear not – to a commenter who queried the issue, M&S replied: ‘We actually don’t use fur in any of our products.
‘The composition of this product is as follows and this information can be found by visiting our website, where we include the materials used on all of our product listings > 50 per cent polyurethane, 50 per cent wool / Body lining – 100 per cent polyester.’
For £49.50, it’s an investment buy that’ll see you through the festive season in style. The only problem now is deciding which colour you need the most.
