Now that the autumn weather is in full swing, a new wardrobe is on the cards.
And the wintry conditions have got us all shopping for one thing – a new coat.
High-street retailers have all come out with their autumn/winter lines and they are all killing it in the coat game.
But there’s one store that has got us all adding pretty much every item to our baskets.
Marks & Spencer has just launched their new Per Una range and we want every one of their winter pieces.
‘Introducing the all new per una collection,’ Marks & Spencer wrote on their Instagram page, ‘available online and in stores today! #allnewperuna 💜’.
The range includes stylish winter dresses, cosy jumpers and trendy skirts. But the standout piece has to be their Wool Cocoon Coat.
The lilac overcoat is set to be a sell-out like the similar purple piece that came out last year, for its laid back shape and striking colour.
Instagram star Zeena Shah showed off the statement piece on her social media page, writing, ‘They’ve refreshed the line this season with some vintage inspired prints and this amazing lilac coat made with carefully sourced fabrics. All paired with the boots I bought a few weeks ago that are already broken in for life.
‘Do have a peep at my stories to see what I got up to and some of the amazing and inspiring women I met. You might spot this coat of dreams on more than one of them! 😍💜’.
The post received hundreds of likes with followers expressing their excitement at the new coat.
‘Love the coat,’ wrote one, ‘totally need that in my life 😆💜’.
‘Such a fab coat,’ added another. ‘You look lovely in it.💜’.
Others commented, ‘What a great coat 💕’, ‘I need this coat in my life’, ‘Ahhh this coat!!!’ and ‘STOP THIS COAT IS EVERYTHING’.
The gorgeous piece will set you back £129, but can be paired with pretty much any of your winter favourites.
We love it with a floaty skirt, a pair of block heeled boots and a cosy jumper.
You can get your hands on the showstopper in stores across the country or on the Marks & Spencer website.
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...).
