The latest collaboration, in time for Christmas 2021, features satin maxi dresses and ruffled midi skirts

The M&S x Ghost collaborations  always fly off the shelves and their fifth collection is no exception. Just the ticket for party season, the cocktail-ready edit comprises 16 pieces (our poor bank balance!) available in sizes six to 20, with midi and wrap dresses we've come to love from previous collabs joined by co-ords of complementing tops, trousers and skirts. Prices range from £44 and £99, which although pricier than you'd normally expect in M&S, isn't bad for a designer pairing.

Think sumptuous satin and velvet textures, paired with Ghost's signature prints aplenty. Alongside the much-loved florals , there are starry numbers  this time round.

If you prefer block colours, you're in luck too, with olive satin midi tea dresses  and ruby red empire line frocks , just begging to be worn to Christmas parties and New Year's eve soirees. The range can be dressed down too; pair the black wrap skirt  or wide-leg trousers  with chunky jumpers for a laidback winter look.
