M&S shoppers 'tempted' by 'such good value' blue outfit they 'love'

Marks and Spencer shoppers have fallen for blue winter outfit they "need" after spotting it online.

The iconic British retailer is known and loved for its vast range of on-trend clothing, accessories, homeware, beauty supplies, furniture and more. M&S has an enduring legacy - despite being founded in 1884, the popular retailer remains a firm favourite among fashion and lifestyle fans.

Like many of its high street competitors, it utilises social media to ensure customers are kept in the loop on what they can expect to find in stores and online. M&S has amassed millions of devoted followers across its multiple Instagram pages, which each highlight all the latest stock and product drops across all departments.

Many of Marks and Spencer's staff members also boast Instagram pages of their own. Dubbed 'M&S insiders' on the phenomenally popular social media platform, they share their styling tips and advice, as well as outfit ideas and inspiration.

Recently, M&S insider Sam Briones posted an Instagram Reel video of herself modelling a "good value" outfit in varying shades of blue. Putting a stylish spin on the winter blues, Sam demonstrated how to put together the retailer's coveted Recycled Blend Striped Ribbed Jumper (£25) and its Jersey Side Stripe Trousers (£35) with a blue jacket, trainers and an animal print bag for contrast.

To Sam's 20K followers, she captioned the clip: "#valueyoucantrust I'm not feeling "blue" in the slightest in this funky combination. Layering up with this striped jumper and padded jacket, It has a regular fit, with a zip-front fastening and smart water-repellent Stormwear technology to keep you dry.

"Both pieces compliment the wide leg side stripe trousers. The bag in animal print is a compact and practical size and the trainers are comfy and on trend." The outfit was a big hit among fashion loving Instagram users, racking up more than 13K views and hundreds of likes.

Shoppers shared their thoughts in the comments section. One said: "Very tempted by the trousers". Fan Amelie said: "Love this look". Helen commented: "Love this outfit".

Claire tagged a friend and said: "I need this xx", while Annabelle said: "Obsessed with this outfit! The trousers are such good value too". Sharon said: "Love", and another shopper agreed and added: "Love it!"
