Marks & Spencer shared an image of a skirt to their Instagram account and the internet reacted, open-mouthed and excited.
The midi skirt comes in a fuchsia colour and features an A-Line shape.
It also features pockets – yes, actual pockets – which, let’s face it, is an absolute revelation for women’s fashion.
The skirt, made of wool, was styled with a knitted jumper and leather heeled boots but we think it’d look just as lovely with a black turtle neck and some sock boots – perfect for autumn.
As mentioned above, the skirt hasn’t actually hit M&S hangers yet. It’s set to come out in mid-October.
But that hasn’t stopped customers getting excited for it – with one person saying they’ll be searching ‘morning, noon and night for the skirt’.
The Instagram post has so far received 2,000 likes and plenty of comments.
One person wrote: ‘We weren’t looking forward to Autumn much, but now we’ve seen these amazing pieces…’
Another said: ‘Oh this look is perfection’.
Someone else joked that the skirt reminded them of their old school uniform but they didn’t mind to much.
They said: ‘That skirt is great. It also happens to almost exactly resemble my old school uniform skirt. I’m hoping 1. It comes in a 24 and 2. It won’t be compulsory for me to wear it with a sky blue gingham shirt and v neck jumper.’
Honestly, this may well go great with tights and black boots if it gets a little chilly as the autumn sets in.
