Marks & Spencer always deliver the goods when it comes to stylish but practical fashion. And this year they've got one of the best winter coats around.
Come winter or summer, rain (or snow) or shine, the high-street store is a go-to for most of us whenever we need a reliable piece or two.
From their infamous bra fitting service, to the comfy tights and underwear and the retailer’s cushioned but fashion-forward shoes for all occasions, good old ‘Sparks’ comes through every time we need them.
And this time it’s in the shape of a comfy coat you might even want to swap your bedding for – hear us out…
Marks & Spencer is now selling their cosy Padded Duvet Coat again – and it comes in even more colours than before.
The snug coat is quilted with the brand’s Thermowarmth technology for a lightweight wear that keeps you warm in blistery outdoor conditions.
It’s also waterproof with a large hood and cuffs on the ends of the sleeves to keep the rain out.
And with black, navy, dark green and light grey options to choose from, it’s one that will go with most outfits.
And customers are loving the duvet style coat, taking to the product’s page to leave rave reviews.
One even commented on Instagram that the coat feels ‘like wearing a duvet’ while still repelling the rain.
Others agreed in the product’s reviews, writing, ‘Lovely warm coat Very very warm!!! I feel like I’m wearing a duvet!’ and ‘Literally a duvet with arms!’.
‘Perfect winter coat,’ added another. ‘This coat is toasty warm. It might not be the most flattering as it is quite thickly quilted, but if it’s a warm winter coat you’re after, then this is the one for you.’
‘Great classic padded coat,’ added another. ‘Always on the lookout for a padded coat that doesn’t look frumpy or make you look like a Michelin man and this ticks the box.
‘I have bought both the black for work and the green as it’s such a good casual colour. The coat is really warm, feels very cosy and is a good longer length.’
‘My best buy this year i think,’ added another, while another fan wrote, ‘Excellent winter coat.’
‘I suppose it has been designed to put layers underneath it. It’s beautifully light which is fantastic. And it also has a very handy inside pocket. Great buy.’
One commented on how enjoyable it makes cold mornings, writing, ‘More of a snuggle than a coat!
‘I’m not a morning person & my favourite season is summer! Finding this coat will make it a whole lot easier to get out of bed and out in the cold!’.
Aleesha is digital shopping writer at woman&home - so whether you're looking for beauty, fashion, health or home buys, she knows all the best places to splash your cash. 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...).
