How to make your summer wardrobe last longer

Marks & Spencers in Cardiff has been undergoing some pretty nifty transformations, and this week the Capital retail park store reopened to reveal a completely redesigned fashion haven. Having previously been a Home and Food shop, the branch now houses some of Marksies' brill fashion and top notch beauty ranges.

To promote the opening, the lovely Aelish, M&S Captial's womenswear section coordinator, has put together some sound advice for those awkward weeks between spring/summer and autumn/winter. You know the time - when you're not sure whether to ditch the florals and don the tights, or to hold out until the bitter(ly cold) end.

Mix and match is the way to do it
Sounds obvious but how many of us separate our clothes into summer and winter wardrobes? M&S's Edgy Limited Edition collection is showcasing some of this year's most vibrant colours with bright pinks alongside the powder blues of spring, and fantastic neons and metallics. Boho brand Indigo meanwhile is bringing softer purples and floral patterns to the fore, and over at per una lagoon blues, coral pinks, greens and greys create a relaxed, sophisticated look. And on top of that rainbow of colours, the tribal prints and patterns of M&S Collection make everyday classics pop.

But don't forget the bling 
If you like a bit of sparkle (and let's be honest who doesn't!), then you'll be happy to hear from Aelish that embellishment is key to staying in style for the trainsitional months, and there are plenty of gorgeous beaded pieces in all of the M&S collections.

Oh, and make a statement
Whether it's through a chunky necklace or flowing kimono, just one key piece can revamp your whole outfit. Invest in one standout out item and you'll be set until the A/W style season arrives.
