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.
