An insider says this is the key to getting the best clothes from M&S

We can all use a little extra hand when it comes to shopping the latest must-haves on the high street – especially when we enter a new season and all the new product drops can be slightly overwhelming.

And of course, all the best things tend to get snapped up almost immediately making it even harder to get your hands on the hottest trends of the moment. But what if you had an inside source at your favourite retailer to advise you on the best shopping methods and help you secure the best looks? Well, we’ve got just that.

Rachel Sullivan, head of content at high street favourite Marks & Spencer recently revealed an excellent hack for shoppers to ensure they get the best items the brand has to offer.

Speaking to Who What Wear, Rachel, who also runs her own Instagram account dedicated to showcasing and styling the chicest offerings from M&S under @marksandspencer_rachel, said: ‘Keep checking the ‘new-in’ and ‘style and living’ section of the M&S website – this is where you’ll find the gems.

‘Don’t forget that you can order any time up to 10pm and pick it up in your nearest M&S store the next day – even at a Simply Food!’ Yes that’s right – even if there’s not a fashion store near you, you can still get the goods. Who knew?!

So with that in mind, what is the biggest thing we should be looking to Marks & Spencer for this summer? You may have already guessed it but, of course, it’s the dresses. If there’s one thing the retailer nails consistently, it’s a midi – well, it is occasionwear season after all…

‘Our dresses are having a real moment,’ Rachel told the publication. ‘Whether you’re looking for bold animal prints or something a bit more sleek and chic, it’s all there. There’s a particular white broderie anglaise floaty dress that arrived in March that I couldn’t wait to get my hands on.’
