The new Marks & Spencer jacket that already boasts Holly Willoughby as a fan

Marks & Spencer

Marks & Spencer has launched a new jacket that Holly Willoughby loves.

Anything from Marks & Spencer that is approved by Holly Willoughby is set to go straight in our shopping baskets.

And now that the weather has started to turn (weep!), there’s only one thing that will be able to successfully put a smile on our already freezing faces - shopping.

Yes, COVID-19 seems to be trying to sneak its way back into our lives and life seems to be slowly descending into another lockdown, but you know, we still need clothes, right?

And Marks & Spencer’s new drop of warm but stylish pieces is everything we need for autumn.

With pretty winter skirts and midi dresses that can be paired with tights and a jumper, stylish trousers, jeans and boots and the cosiest looking coats and jackets we’ve come across in a while, it’s hard to pick which to spend our money on.

So of course we turn to our style icon Holly Willoughby. The This Morning presenter gives us style inspiration every weekday when she posts her famous outfit photos on Instagram - anything she’s seen in, we want.

And the ITV host already seems to be a fan of one of the standout pieces in the new Marks & Spencer collection - the Aviator jacket.

Holly was seen on the high-street favourite’s Instagram page wearing the new autumnal jacket.

And like a true style icon she paired it with the store’s new yellow and black pleated skirt and their monochrome funnel neck jumper.

Feline fine in our new autumn faves,’ wrote Marks & Spencer. ‘Now the weather’s cooled down, we’re getting excited about our new-season buys, such as the geo-print skirt, colour-block jumper and aviator jacket as seen on @hollywilloughby’.

We are definitely purchasing all three of these for our wardrobes!

She earned an MA in Magazine Journalism from City, University of London in 2017 after graduating from University of Leeds in 2014 with a BA in English and Spanish (which took her to Madrid for a fun Rioja and tapas-packed year). Aleesha has worked for woman&home since 2019, when she joined the team as their digital news writer. A year on the news team gained her quick and reactive writing skills and a love for breaking stories, invaluable insight into where to get the best lifestyle releases first, an AOP awards nomination and the nickname ‘crazy watch lady’ after she became so obsessed with the royals that she followed breaking news alerts on her Apple Watch.


Before joining the woman&home team, Aleesha wrote for their sister site GoodtoKnow, where she covered celebrity news, health advice and where to snap up the cheapest lifestyle buys. With a background in beauty, Aleesha has also written for Stylist and Women’s Health where she developed an understanding into what makes a stellar product and which brands are worth paying attention to. She never leaves the house without a slick of lip balm and a good slathering of SPF, cannot live without an eyelash curler by her side and is always on the hunt for new lipsticks to add to her ‘Lipstick of the Day’ Instagram story highlight (and color-coordinated collection).

But it’s not just beauty buys Aleesha can help you with. Social media savviness, strong PR relationships and a need to stay in the know mean she’s all about the latest fashions, clever gadgets and reliable lifestyle buys too. She loves indulging in an interior craze (with a bedroom drowned in prints, plants and pink), is a regular visitor to the Missoma and Edge of Ember 'New In' pages and can’t resist the allure of a kitchen gadget—just ask her three coffee machines.

When she’s not playing around with new products and testing anything she can get her hands on, Aleesha spends most of her time with her head in a current bestseller, catching up on the latest Netflix craze with her sister, trying out new recipes, drinking wine with her bestie and (in non-COVID times) has been known to be a bit of a jetsetter amongst her friendship group. Oh and she makes the most of her Disney+ subscription by watching the Marvel films on repeat (definitely not just for Chris Evans...).
