Marks & spencer white tops - a mini reviewhere are all the tops i ordered and what i thought of each of them. although some are sold out i've still included links to them all as sale items often go in and out of stock as people return things. top row, l-r: oversized double layer lace t-shirt: this one was far too mumsy. other retailers have lace tops and this one just didn't seem modern enough. loose fit sprig print pleated blouse: a lovely blouse but it was incredibly see-through - almost transparent. pure cotton flared sleeve shirt: my shirt. although i didn't love it at first i think it's because i did up the top bottom like the picture on the website. as soon as i undid the button i loved it. however, if the reviews hadn't said go a size down i would have ended up with a tent of a shirt. bottom row, l-r: fit & flare smocked peasant blouse: this was a close second. my only bugbear was that the sleeves were the exact same length as the top so it made me look very wide. i often get round this on other tops by rolling up the sleeves, but these weren't roll-able as the fabric was floppy. lace trim crinkle effect shell top: i quite liked this but my usual size was far too big. plus it had some pen marks on it, but the size down was sold out so i couldn't reorder. bubble lace vest: this top was ridiculously big. my usual size sagged under the arms so much it looked like it came with extra pockets, and the smaller size had sold out. the marks & spencer challenge by the over 40 collectiveplease do click through and check out what my fellow over 40 collectives have to say about their experience of shopping with m&s and this challenge... there are some very interesting opinions! liz - what lizzy loves"i've lost count of the number of times i've seen something in a magazine or on a fellow blogger that looks like a designer piece, to discover it is in fact from m&s. desirable, well-made and well-priced, i've wanted several such items, but they have proven nigh on impossible to find." read more >>follow liz on instagram @whatlizzyloves michelle - retrochicmama"as i suspected the 10 was a perfect fit, meaning if you’re a 10 it'll be slightly large on you. the quality is terrific as is the cut which you can probably see from my photos. the length of the blazer is perfect and the little gold button details elevate its high street status." read more >>follow michelle on instagram @retrochicmamablog michelle - the barefaced chic"as for the 40-65 year olds who are at the core of the m&s customer base, we want stylish, flattering clothing which is good quality and great value for money. we don't want what our mothers and grandmothers want." read more >>follow michelle on instagram @barefaced_chic lisa - the sequinist"as for the marks and spencer shirt, it is nice quality and does the job well. i don't find this top to be particularly flattering on me, but that is only because my shape works better with fitted tops than loose ones. in my experience of shopping with m&s, i always find the fashion-forward hero pieces are gone if you aren't super fast." read more >>follow lisa on instagram @thesequinist annette - lady of style"the aim of our style challenge was to prove you can look good and trendy in a basic white top and jeans in your own individual style. for me that was sticking to my favourite elegant touch even when i am wearing jeans! there have been several tops and blouses which i really liked but in the end i went for this bodycon top as i am in love with off-the-shoulder and boatneck lines." read more >>follow annette on instagram @theladyofstyle nikki - midlife chic"the blouse in this outfit was my wild card. it's from the classic collection which, as you'll know, is targeted at the older, more conservative lady but in my view it's bang on the 'tie neck trend.' it arrived with the neckline tied in a neat pussy bow which i instantly undid." read more >>follow nikki on instagram @midlifechic
