With over 130 years of experience with amazing quality and beautiful, wearable designs, M&S is the renowned authority on linen. The perfect fabric for perpetually sunny Singapore, it’s breathable, lightweight and chic.

When it comes to linen, they’re the experts. Ever-flattering, feminine and oh-so-easy to wear, we’re loving the breezy dresses, crisp shirts and wide-legged pants they have on offer this season. From a morning walk to grab brunch to an evening dinner, these pieces can take you everywhere in Singapore and beyond for your mid-year break! 

From the French Riviera sunning on a yacht to Singapore’s beaches, the fresh colour palette and classic silhouettes will have you looking stylish around the globe. A big concern when purchasing linen can be its tendency to crease easily. That’s why M&S have developed crease-resistant technology in their fabric so that it’s not only easy-to-iron, but less likely to wrinkle to begin with!




If you’re in search of some figure-flattering and technologically advanced swimwear, M&S has you covered too. A classic one piece is empowering and iconic, from Brigitte Bardot to modern day sirens it is both chic and flattering. Marks & Spencer have incorporated tummy-tucking tech into their gorgeous designs to smooth and keep your curves and edges in check. The swimsuits are also cut to flatter your bum and legs and are made of chlorine-resistant fabric meaning their colour vibrancy will last longer. If you’re headed for a pool or beachside drink after swimming, slip on one of the embroidered kaftans in the collection for an easy, sleek cover-up.



A classic for a reason, the linen shirt is reminiscent of balmy, sunshine-filled evenings and cocktails with the ones you love. Style with denim for a relaxed, casual look or black cigarette pants for a more formal occasion.

The loose pant is a timeless silhouette and no better embodied for high summer than in a bright, white linen. We love these pants for a morning by the pool or for brunch with the girls.


Dive in with this durable and extremely flattering swimsuit. I love the ruching on the bust for a great silhouette whether you’re well endowed or not so much! If you’re concerned about your tummy this is your dream swimwear and the sky blue works with every skin tone.


When you’re ready to dry off and seek some shade, pop on this stunning kaftan for some respite from the sun. To be honest, the piece is so gorgeous, I would wear it as a dress in its own right on a regular weekend shopping or wandering around town!




Perfect for a high summer evening, this chic printed shift dress is elegant and classy if you want a cooling but demure look. Pair with flat sandals for a low-key, no-fuss take on after-dark dressing.
