M&S has reported a drop in profits, mainly due to poor sales in womenswear. Well I have to say that I’m not totally surprised. Their recent collections have had far too much emphasis on neutral colours. This was fine last winter, when the trend was for greys and blacks, but this summer and winter the trend has been far more colourful. Lots of oranges, turquoises, purples and berry colours everywhere on the high street – except for M&S. Apparently M&S are having a total revamp of their collection, and we should see the results of that when next year’s Autumn/Winter collection appears in the shop. Let’s hope that they think a lot more about colour this time.
With all the terrible weather that we have been having recently I expect that swimwear is the last thing on your mind at the moment, unless you are lucky enough to have a holiday in the sun to look forward to !
However the sun is bound to come out again at some point, so perhaps now is a good time to dig out your cossie to see if it will last you another year. If not then M&S has a fantastic selection of swimwear this year. A lot of it has draping and ruching, which is fantastic for those of us who have a few lumps and bumps that we would like to keep hidden. for those who prefer their swimwear a little less fussy there is also quite a lot with interesting belt and button details.
