Now that we are well into September it’s definitely time for the winter wardrobes to come out.
The weather has turned from shorts and t-shirts in the sun to time to get the socks and scarves out in the space of a week.
And as every year goes by the autumn change of weather leads us all to make a purchase or two – all in the name of keeping warm of course.
But when it comes to splurge on a coat, there are so many trendy options out there these days that sometimes it’s impossible to choose just one.
Especially when we find one that gives us the ultimate autumn look and we just want to get it in every colour available.
So now high-street retailer Marks & Spencer has come up with a way to get the autumn look without emptying our bank accounts on different-coloured coats to match every look in our winter wardrobes.
The high-street clothes store has launched a reversible coat to give us two winter cover-ups in one.
Their Split Wool Overcoat is a two in one winter warmer, which can be turned inside out and worn that way round for a completely different colour.
While one side of the coat is a delicate blush pink colour, the opposite side comes in a deep autumnal rust red shade.
And while the coat is not the cheapest out there at a price of £119, it won’t break the bank.
And it’s certainly a fair price for getting two looks in one handy package.
Plus it has been designed to suit all shapes and sizes, available from a size 6 up to a size 22.
Pair this with a cream or mustard jumper, a pair of dark blue jeans and your favourite winter boots and you’ve got yourself the ultimate autumn look.
Marks & Spencer has done it again.
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...).
