Hi, I’m Emily, and I love coats. If you try to argue with me that another clothing item does more to make outfits look amazing, then we’ll probably be here a long time. As a stylist and fashion editor, I know a great coat is my secret weapon for impressing with my wardrobe. The thing is, you can be wearing the simplest pair of jeans and a T-shirt underneath, but add a smart coat, and you instantly have a pulled-together “look.”

This obsession with exceptional outerwear also means I’m seriously picky when shopping for it. Because I count on coats so much, I’m a big believer in investing in fewer really amazing styles you’ll reliably bring out year after year, which usually means I avoid the high street. But recently, I haven’t been able to stop thinking about H&M’s outerwear offering. I honestly don’t think I’ve ever come across a high-street edit that is so impressive across the board. 

In particular, its wool and wool-blend styles seem to be hitting the mark and combine chicness with the timeless quality I’m looking for. There are a number of cosy styles if you’re wanting to invest in a coat to keep you warm right now (and for many winters to come), perfect for the cold front we’re about to have. Having said that, there was one H&M wool coat that stood out—a roomy style in a chic greige colourway which debuted in September and sold out in a flash. While there has been the odd return here and there, I’ve been patiently waiting for the day that I could share a full restock with you. That day, dear readers, has finally come. 

Worn by stylist and Threads fashion director, Hannah Lewis, it’s easy to see why this H&M coat has been like gold dust to get your hands on. Timeless, elegant and compliment-inducing (Lewis says someone asks her where it’s from every time she wears it, and I believe it!), this is a coat so special, I didn’t think I’d ever find its like on the high street. Because of their more premium fabrications, they do come in at a higher price point than you might have come to expect from H&M, but I do think they’re worth it in terms of timelessness and quality. 

Keep scrolling to shop H&M’s bestselling wool coat for yourself, plus some other items I’m loving right now.

So stunning.

I’m also into the cream. 

So chic.

Maybe our favourite of the bunch…

This soft grey is so versatile. 

Ideal if you prefer shorter coat styles. 

There’s no risk of this camel coat looking dating. 

This beauty will go with everything in your wardrobe.

This timeless belted style is sure to be a forever favourite. I love it worn over a turtleneck as above.

This beautiful cream coat looks so much more expensive than it is.
