With the launch of our High Summer ’14 Catalogue it is definitely time to start thinking about your holiday wardrobe, although with holiday excitement comes the dreaded airline luggage allowance. Creating a capsule holiday wardrobe will help you towards a stress-free travelling experience and our holiday shop is here to help.

To find the perfect capsule wardrobe we have launched a Blogger Challenge…  Elbows at the ready! Anyone with a blog or website can enter and be in with a chance of winning £100 of online credit to spend at, plus you will also win the chance to be featured on our blog.

The runners up will also have their capsule wardrobe shared with all our lovely readers so they too can see how to perfectly style their holiday attire.

To enter our hot competition, simply follow the below steps: (There isn’t that many considering the prize!)

  •  Browse our Holiday Shop and pick your favourite pieces
  •  Create your ultimate capsule wardrobe for under £100 and post it on your blog. Don’t forget to tell us why you picked each piece and why it HAS to be in your case!

Aztec Inspiration

M&Co’s Senior Online Womenswear Coordinator, Lesley McCormack knows her luxury beachwear…



“I’d choose the maxi dress because I’m loving the Aztec and tribal prints all over the high street at the moment and this could be worn from day to night, which is an essential in any holiday wardrobe.”



“Both the white embroidered cami  and orange bikini would look great with a tan and the animal bangle set adds the finishing touch to day or evening looks.”
