After popping into Marks & Spencer on my lunch break, I'm here to report that the new summer collection is really, really good. What's more, so many of the pieces look (and feel) like they cost about 10 times the value of their actual price tags.

You may have seen some of the hero pieces in the brand's latest TV ad – namely that white dress with mother-of-pearl embellishments, an oyster-hued satin tank and matching slip skirt, and the most perfect (and comfy) slingbacks I've ever worn.

An hour lunch break isn't enough time to sift through M&S's new-in section, which is why I've done the hard work for you and selected 14 of the best, more-expensive-looking-than-they-are, new arrivals. You're welcome; happy shopping.
