After officially saying goodbye to summer and navigating the tricky transitional months, we’re happy to say that we finally have a solution to the age-old question, “What should I wear in winter?”. And the answer is surprisingly simple.
It’s in the colder months that high-street brand Marks and Spencer really comes into its own, and if anyone knows British style, it’s the people at M&S who have been outfitting us for decades, and leaning into the cooler climes is their speciality. Sure, we stocked up on plenty of the brand’s dresses already, but the proof of its cold-weather expertise is in the proverbial pudding, where the main ingredients are timeless coats, boots and jumpers.
Whenever we find ourselves lacking in cosy knits or realise we could do with investing in new boots, Marks and Spencer is the first place we turn. Continuing to build on its well-curated edit of modern workwear, versatile separates and statement knitwear and outerwear, this season, M&S also is offering brand-new silhouettes, reworked classics and some seriously cosy moments.
With consistent sizing (something that’s becoming infuriatingly unreliable on the high street) and a level of quality that, more often than not, surpasses its price tags, I personally think M&S purchases are always worth it. And right now, M&S’s coat, boot and jumper offerings are so impressive it only seems right to share them with you and give the brand its well-deserved dues.
