Marks & Spencer might be the place you usually head to for socks and sandwiches, but as any fashion expert will know, there are plenty of fab fashion pieces to be discovered there. Priding itself on its classic designs that transcend the generations, M&S has developed a knack for creating basics that will look just as good on everyone, whether you're 18 or 80. With classic cuts and flattering fits, it really has become our go-to for certain staples that need to stand the test of time.

On our shortlist are pieces such as Breton tops, tailored shirts, cashmere knits and flat boots, all of which are guaranteed to look good with everything you own. Best of all? They all come in under £150, which is impressive considering the fact that most of the M&S buys in our wardrobe have lasted for years.
