Marks & Spencer are a high street favourite and we love seeing the new bits and bobs they come out with.

But it seems their latest clothing collection has caused a bit of a stir on social media.

The company has divided shoppers after showing off their exclusive Finery London dresses, with prices starting at £45, reports Birmingham Mail.

The three-quarter length dresses, with long sleeves, proved a bit hit-and-miss, with some urging M&S to "wake up", branding them "awful", "dull" and "frumpy".

Others were concerned about the lack of plus sizes in the range, while some thought the collection was very "last year".

In a post on Facebook, M&S wrote: "We're excited to announce a 20-piece exclusive edit of Finery London for marksandspencer.com.

"Designed by Finery London, the limited-edition range includes standout styles and patterns you will love."

Hundreds of people liked and commented on the post, with one person writing: "Wake up M&S... so frumpy."

Another said: "What are your plans to offer larger sizes than size 18. This is the second collection that doesn't offer sizes for larger ladies."

Do you like them?

A third replied: "Little House on the Prairie costumes I presume."

"Don't like the styles. So dull," proclaimed someone else.

A different user added: "Nice prints but awful styles. They look like hospital gowns."

A sixth admitted: "I feel like this is last year's stock, not new for this year."

However, not everyone disliked the new dresses, with some keen to give them a try.

"M&S these dresses look great," responded one fan. "On-trend but also timeless. We all have different tastes. I'll be wearing one with boots and with trainers for sure."

"Beautiful collection," commented a second.

"M&S is a huge store, I don't understand why everyone expects every item to be perfect for them. Fine, these dresses might be too long for some people or not the right pattern. But simply visit the website and find something that does suit instead of moaning about the items you don't like."
